    Default specific examples Te vs. Ti

    I don't know why but I cannot understand Te and Ti in action.

    Can someone think of a senario and discuss how someone with Te would handle the problem and how someone with Ti would look at it.

    I feel I could understand if I see how they are different when tackling the same problem.

    Ti is more abstracting and Te is more organizing, for one.

    I understand the differences in theory but I cannot see it in action. Can you think of a problem and how someone with Ti would abstractly think about it and how someone with Te would interpret it?

    Ti seems to break systems apart and analyze while Te seems to be more empirical, procedural, and stays within set boundaries. Sorry if that doesn't help.

    Someone else can probably explain Te versus Ti far better than me, but I'll jump in and give it a try...

    I think of Te as a person organizing their external environment. Te dominants like ESTJ and ENTJ are driven to organize their outer world to make it logical (and they are driven to organize people in their outer world as well, which makes me them sometimes a tad bossy, lol).

    Ti, as someone mentioned, is more abstract. It's like constantly organizing and reorganizing your inner world as you try to understand the objects, people, and situations that you encounter. Ti dominants like ISTP and INTP are supposedly curious about the way things work. My sister is ISTP and I can just see the wheels spinning in her head as she's observing a mechanical object, for example, although she rarely shares her findings with the outer world. (I see her doing the same thing with people actually, just kind of coolly observing them and -- I imagine -- finding their behavior logically inconsistent, lol.)

    I'm kind of rambling at this point. Hopefully this was somewhat helpful.

    Ti is taking things apart, seeing what makes things tick, analysis. Subjective.
    Te is planning, scheduling, organizing. Objective.

    If you supply a problem, I can tell you how I would use either Ti or Te, if that helps, but it seems self explanatory. We all use both functions at different times.

    Because of my begging, incorrect spelling, use of third person, and the puppy dog face?

    Okay, well since it seems universally impossible for people to perform what the OP requests and simply imagine a concrete scenario that demonstrates Ti and Te usage, I'll try and provide one myself. I'll even throw in Fe and Fi for comparison purposes. These may not be right, so someone correct me if I'm totally off.

    Scenario
    : your mother wants you to design the landscaping for her new house. She says you can do it however you like, and use whatever materials/flowers/plants/constructions that you want. How would you go about accomplishing this? What would be your first considerations? How would you choose which flowers/plants to use, and where to put each of them?

    Ti:
    I will answer how I would personally go about doing it (which I think is Ti). I would first do some research and find out which plants grew best in the type of climate/soil conditions afforded by the location of my mother's house. I might also analyze the condition of the soil to determine whether it has any insect/other problems that need to be fixed before planting anything. I would then analyze the location of the house in relation to the sun, so that I could know where I could put different plants based on their specific sun requirements. Also, I would analyze the level of the land, so that if it's uneven, I can level it off, or build some sort of contraption to drain the flooding water if it rains. Don't want the plants to be drowned from a light rain. Then, I would figure out which combination of plants would be optimal (i.e., which ones cannot grow near each other, if any, and which color combinations would be most pleasing against the color of the house).

    Te:
    I'm not sure how a Te user would go about it. Maybe they'd be first and foremost concerned with the type of budget possible for the project, and plan a good balance between purchasing quality plants and the labor/materials it would take to plant them. They may also project how much the upkeep would cost in future years, and decide on the plants that require the least maintenance and resources to keep healthy through the seasons. They might even have extended plans for what to do if adverse weather conditions, such as flood, drought, snow, or ice, threaten the future life of the plants.

    Fe:
    (And then maybe an Fe user would choose the types of plants that they knew their mother liked best. Or at least, given material restraints, they'd be concerned with choosing, among the possible options, the ones that were most pleasing to their mother.)

    Fi:
    (And I don't know what an Fi user would do. Maybe pick the plants that they have fond memories attached to? Or pick from among the possible plants based on how much they appeal to them personally?)

    Again, these might be wrong, so feel free to correct any part that seems off the mark.

    Te: categorize information according to outcomes and planning
    Ti: categorize information accor5ding to principales, ideas and experiences.

    They are all the same in the end.
