    I use Te a lot -- pretty much any activity or work is done with the view of finding the most efficient way possible. I'm also pretty good at following someone else's argument and seeing what pieces they missed.

    My brain seems to automatically organize thoughts and ideas systematically. It has a natural inclination to do so. I just follow its lead.

    It doesn't really matter how badly you use your tertiary Te, it's a part of yourself that you have to embrace, and unfortunately, that means failing at it in front of others. People with more prominent Te see your use as you see our use of Fi-- if it's not appropriately developed, we seem childish, petty, able to blow up with a tiny, random provocation.

    Also, the only reason it seemed cold is because you never use it, and don't integrate it into your usual persona. If you work on it, you'll seem like a more level-headed, grounded person and your complaints will take on a deeper meaning to your INTJ.

    Do you people actually go through life labeling certain actions you take as "Te" and "Fe" and the like?

    ^ I've had the same thought ... I just don't see them as concretely as others seem to label their actions either. I think there's overlap for sure.

    Sometimes, if I'm trying to figure out why I'm acting the way I am. Though it is very unusual for one function to work by itself, so my more common ones are Te-Ni for study, Te-Se for play, and the dreaded Fi-Ni loop when nothing's going right for me.

    I have been learning about the various functions, so yes I find this helps things 'click' for me.



    So I was thinking about this thread today at work, and it seems that when I go to make a decision I often decide what is 'necessary' using Fi. From that point, I use Te to structure everything else into place around the necessary elements, and Te of course acts under the watchful eye of Fi here. So Te acts almost in a logistical sense, thinking ahead and helping visualize roles.

    But, how do you know? And what's the point?

    I learned that Te balances Ne.
    So, I've practiced my Te usage from early ages and it's good for me as long as it won't take hold on me more.

    I've never "balanced my functions" as by the theory, for heavens sake, I've only known the theory for few years. But I see things in myself that I think need development (I always had done this) and then I try to develop them.

    Like with Te. My chaotic nature needed balancing. I brought some order into my life and some scheduling and organizing. I call that Te. It has helped me even if I wouldn't know about MBTI theory. Now I just have names for the different sides of my personality that I call Ne and Te and...

    This was more a case of impatience, aka Te wanting to get back to work already. Actually, the last part of that sentence is Fi. If the way I'm doing it isn't good enough for him, he can bloody well do it himself, coz then I aint going to waste energy on it. The entire motivation to do this organizing etc though, is Fi for me. The way I go about it is Te..I think.

    Can you tell me something if it is not a secret: In which situations do you realize that you have too little Te in yourself ?
