*ponders* At least a Thinking Primary type under my system, and definitely an Introvert. So, ISTJ or INTJ.
It's extremely ironic that BlueWing's unreal knowledge of MBTI function theory is probably why he mistyped himself.
Hmm, so ISTJ in your system is Ti-Se.
I claim I am Ti-Ne.
Hmm, Ti-Se tends not to be interested in discussing complex ideas. Certainly would not bother elaborating them in tedious detail.
You seem to be confusing S detail (attention to concrete, physical detail, like for example noticing a small scratch on your car) and conceptual detail. Conceptual detail is most notable among Ti-Ne mathematicians and logicians. They often take over a 100 steps to complete their proof. It is also notable among philosophers, as we see there are many books written by Ti-Ne philosophers (such as Aristotle, Hegel, and William James) that are over 500 pages long.
The ideas in those books are founded on a few axioms, which they explain very thoroughly. Thus there is detail to logical nuance.
Clearly, the work of thinkers with a dominant Intuition is different in this regard, they do not devote nearly as much time to explaining the nuance of their reasoning.
Generally all of us tend to focus on things that capture our interest. So, Ts, especially INTPs (Introverted Thinking is the quintissence of Thinking or logical reasoning, and logic is by its nature abstract, therefore Ti-Ne is more in line with logical reasoning than Ti-SE), are fascinated with the nuance of logical reasoning.
Thus, the reason my posts are this tedious is because I outline my reasoning in detail. That is in closest affinity with Ti-Ne for reasons stated above. Ti-Se would be interested in a different kind of detail. Detail that pertain to the concrete, physical world. They are generally concerned with analysis of what can be observed with their 5 senses, for this reason Ti-Se are distinctly represented among mechanics.
Feel free to start another thread about my type, because this discussion is not relevant to our current topic.
