This was pretty good on Ti/Te:Here's why I want to understand this...
I believe language...the words we make use of...profoundly shape our perceptions of reality. And so when I take a look at the words being used in this thread to define my type...how surprised do you think I am right now that the one member/person I know that is a true socionics buff ( @Azure Flame )...has littered the internet with his hatred of NFPs? Not surprised at all...this all makes sense to me now.
Please tell me how Te and Ti are defined. Thank you.
The formal definitions are these:
Ti = External Statics of Fields i.e. truths, axioms, laws.
Te = External Dynamics of Objects i.e. methods, processes, mechanisms.
