I am not sure. They only have 8 actual descriptions (one for each mindframe). The seeming variety comes from further analysis of the order of mindframes.
So the seemingly more accurate description may simply be an artifact of there being an ordering of 8 things giving you a further analysis.
There are 8!=40320 ways to order 8 things. Even more if you consider ties.
You have a similar thing in the eight descriptions of cognitive functions, and an ordering of their strengths (with no limits on the ordering).
I didn't find "LOGICAL" to be more accurate of me than "Ti" (nor less) .
If you believe their claims, the cool thing is that the mindframes correspond to sections of the brain. I know Lenore Thompson proposed something similar for the cognitive functions, but it seemed to be completely baseless.
Well, in fact, there are way more ways, once you download the specialized analysis (I think there's one coupon they give you for a free special analysis, which is the "revelations"). It gives you a percentage-detailed profile, and some other facts from it, and it sure told me way more than what mbti did. And the ways are now 100^8 (note the order is not important now, because the data should be organized by the program with any of the possibilities). As for the Lenore Thompson theory, I agree completely, it's baseless.

INSIGHT is the mindframe of imagination. It enables you to:
* Read nonverbal "body language"
* Interpret someone's moods
* Be aware of a person's individual traits
* Have empathy for another person's situation
* Understand the characteristics of a human relationship
* Appreciate the merits of a work of art
* Associate one image with another
* Think of a new solution
* Visualize a possible future scenario
* Know whether an action is ethically correct
* Sense the personal significance of something
* Feel a hunch that something is true, even without evidence
* Hear "alarm bells" of high risk or danger
* Form and use beliefs to make decisions
* Consider some things to be more important than others
* Make a personal commitment
INSIGHT isn't some kind of psychic power. It's simply the ability to "connect the dots" all at once by seeing the pattern. You get a feel for how the world works based on observation. You see a woman smile, and you know she doesn't mean it. How? Instead of careful step-by-step reasoning to reach that conclusion, you instantly recognize the special cues you've learned to associate with insincerity. This intuition only seems mysterious because it happens so fast.
INSIGHT answers questions of personal significance: "Is this right?" "Is it fair?" and "How important is this?" It uses the patterns drawn from past experience to assess the meaning of what's happening right now. You form beliefs that "feel right." You hold them as long as they continue to work for you. For instance, if you've learned to recognize the signals, you may be able to tell when a person is lying.
INSIGHT is a key mindframe for artists, designers, composers, performers, authors, architects, theologians and counselors. The ability to associate is also crucial to putting together a story, a poem, a song or a drawing. It lets you enjoy, appreciate and interpret works of art. When you connect the physical details of your experience, you discover their meaning. You see patterns and sense significance. The wisdom you gain, such as your understanding of people, isn't easily explained by logic.
CHARISMA is the mindframe of influence. It enables you to:
* Participate in discussions about ethical or moral issues
* Advise, coach or counsel others when they have problems
* Encourage others to do their best
* Ask questions to find out what a person wants or needs
* Persuade someone to make a commitment
* Show a high level of energy when doing things important to you
* Help resolve a conflict between two individuals
* Explain the benefits of following your suggestions and recommendations
* Collaborate with others to pursue a worthy cause
* Facilitate a discussion group
* Brainstorm new ideas with other people
* Express your values and beliefs
* Describe your vision with passion and charisma
* Present motivational or inspirational talks
* Use facial expressions and gestures to convey your heart-felt emotions
* Talk about your ideals with flair and conviction
The dictionary describes CHARISMA as "personal magnetism or charm" and the quality—especially in leaders—"to arouse fervent popular devotion and enthusiasm." Through CHARISMA, you use dramatic expressiveness to share your wisdom and declare your beliefs, values and ideals. You tell people what's possible. Your message touches their hearts as well as their minds.
We all use CHARISMA, especially when we want to influence people. You let them know how you feel with your words and your whole being. When you talk, your arms and hands move. Your tone of voice and facial expressions convey honest emotion, and people respond to you with similar emotions. Your lyrics are accompanied by music, so to speak. You're engaging and entertaining. Your enthusiasm is contagious. People identify with your commitment, and they feel inspired to go along.
In a sales role, you have to hold the buyer's interest and spark his enthusiasm. To be convincing as a coach, your team members need to know you mean what you say. All sorts of people lead by getting others to care about where they're going: negotiators, politicians, clergymen, public speakers, broadcasters, actors and performance artists in general. Your passion and imagination can stimulate the passion and imagination of others.
Your way of learning is to focus on “perception” information two ways—SENSITIVITY and ORDER—before you get interested in “meaning” information, using LOGIC. So while you’re likely to focus often on practical, experience-based, here-and-now details, you may not pay much attention to analysis, explanations, ideas and projections.
Your way of problem solving is to rely first on one feel-based mindframe—SENSITIVITY—before you engage a reason-based mindframe, using ORDER, which is not in your comfort zone. So while you’ll initially use instincts, intuition and hunches, you may not always balance this way of thinking with a structured, calculated approach to dealing with problems.
Your way of making decisions is to be deliberate. That means you usually prefer to study a situation before doing something. You’ll tend to think about what to do four ways—SENSITIVITY, ORDER, LOGIC and INSIGHT—before you do anything using the SOCIABILITY mindframe. In other words, you may not move to action in a timely manner.
