I think that has some validity. It's part of the reason why I gauge people's reactions closely. It makes me keep on reconsidering my behaviour in relation to what others feel, think or react like. That doesn't mean necessarily that I decide I'm wrong just because someone doesn't agree, but it is somewhat of a way of testing out behaviour/ideas.
I had never thought about Te in exactly those terms, but that is most definitely true. I've found that my ESTJ was more likely to change his thinking than I was, even though from the onset he sounded absolutely convinced that his way was right and I assumed that he was going to stick by it as firmly as I would if I came out and stated something so positively. Good food for thought.
