    Leave it to an Se to take the "box" metaphor literally.

    it was more fun that way- killing people with literalness warms the cockles of my heart when I know that's NOT what they want to hear... and it certainly wasn't the first box I thought of

    plus, it gave me good grounds for offering descriptions... now go back to thinking about dragons

    just be glad thought number 1 wasn't posted or this would be graveyard before anyone could blink

    and playing dumb can get a person far in life... like to elected office even!

    I would say Both of these are accurate.

    Si : Puts duct tape round the box to make sure the bottom doesn't fall out when you pick it up.

    Ni : Who made this box in the first place, anyway? And why? I could make a better one.

    Se : Fills the box up with stuff to see how to pack things in and how strong it is, then unfolds the box to see how its made.

    Ne : Spills everything in the box onto the floor, then sits on the box while it plays with them.

    it doesent take hours to find out that the box is made out of wood. and imo Te is the one that goes looking from information elsewhere(internet or that book) about the box, Ti figures it out by himself.

    i think it would be more like this:

    picks up the box, examines it closely from all angles, how it is made, is it sturdy, measures it, makes an estimation about how much empty space is inside it by looking at how think wood blanks have been used to made it, shakes it to find out if there is something inside etc. after this Ti will ask for help for other functions to find a use for the box or maybe some parts of the box.
