    My goal is to turn myself into an ESTJ by strengthening Te.

    A man can dream right...?

    If x effects then y reacts!

    Te prompts me to eat a frog. Frog secretes toxic pus and I die.

    Te prompts me to type this message. You read this message and perhaps you will respond.

    Te prompts me to venture into a semi-aquatic cove. Tides rise and I drown.

    Te prompts me to throw a shovel at the neighbor's cat because it's wailing something fierce.

    Te prompts me to organize my thoughts by the the nature of Te itself.

    Case 1:
    First-order Te: I will win this deal by being the best.
    Second-order Te: Others will try to win the deal by being the best too, so I will have to manage everything that comes out of this premise. First of all, trying to beat the other with the "I'm better than X" -attitude leads to escalation, and nothing good will come from that. Hence, I will do best by presenting my case and not going into fights. This will show understanding of the bigger issues.

    Case 2:
    First-order Te: This woman in here is crying, even though she should not. I will tell her to stop.
    Second-order Te: Even though she should not cry, given the circumstances, and it's not a good course of action, either, it's a matter of fact that has to be dealt with. Telling her what to do would just bring hatred to her misery. Instead, I'll offer my compassionate support for the while, without going in to her feelings. We'll both feel fine for having the situation solved so well.

    What do you mean by "first-order" and second-order" Te? Does it simply mean that first-order is more extreme?

    Think he means it's place in your function order.

    I've ment that first order is the first thought - second is an elaboration on it.

    Edit: also, what I ment - primary Te users have gone further in the process, so they're more likely to use second-order Te, and better. Someone who is new to Te, might just do first-order Te. That was my idea.

    Ah alright, that's what I thought you meant.
