Ok, so unless I have this wrong, Te is expressed by organising things into categories to maximise efficiency, making chore rosters? planning budgets? stuff like that?
Whenever I get really depressed, I find myself naturally falling back onto heavy use of Te to get through that day. I find it soothing to shut down my primary functions and lose myself in organising my life into categories, creating my weekly menu's and shopping lists, matching that to my budget.
My walls begin to look like some control freaks wall, with exact times for each chore to be done, for each person to do their share (because it's up on the wall you know lol) to speed up the process with minimal interruptions.
I don't want to exercise my Ne in a fantasy related way, I don't want to filter anything through my Fi because it's preoccupied with something else and isn;t thinking clearly.
Infact I won't be able to handle any emotional stress until after my day or two of heavy Te usage. Even my sleep has a time set for it, including the amount of hours I can afford to waste sleeping in relation to the other tasks I need to get done.
I am like a robot, I am not communicative except to point out if there is something you need to be doing to be doing your fair share, but that's it.
In a few days I am myself again, I slip back into my chaotic lifestyle and I feel refreshed.
Do any other NFP's find they need to do this sometimes to clear the cobwebs out?
Also, is this an example of stress and the shadow type coming out to play?
EDIT: and actually, was I even right about this being how Te is expressed?
