    I mean like if somehow Ti or Te didn't exist then would people be unable to determine the truth?

    I strongly value truth/knowing the truth so I'm pretty in tune with it but I have no idea if that's becuase I have strong Ti or Te or whatever.
    Without Te, I'd still be a frightened, quivering little bunny over in the corner.

    I would be inclined to believe that Ti is more concerned with knowing the truth.. Te just wants to tell it like it "is".

    Hmm, I don't know about all this Ti/Te shiznit.

    But I am *very* much concerned about finding, embracing and respecting the truth.

    For you and me, that's likely through Fi with Te providing feedback and structure for it.

    Gah, I need to start doing some more research on these 8 functions.

    But, sure, I'll take your word for it.

    Heart is right. Fi is very much concerned with truth. But a "personal" truth.. a truth that has personal relevance... right?

    Hmm, I am concerned with finding my own truth, but I find this truth through observing and respecting the facts of reality.

    Does that make sense?

    Yes, as I understand it and also very centered around the human element. And while I cannot speak for others, I know that I have a tendancy to humanize other things, to think of them in such terms while keeping in mind what I am doing. Electrons in a shell have persona, lol, they are dudes spinning around in their own little community. It is how I make dry things less dry. I am always shocked when people take such things literally.

    Fi drives me nuts because it's my tertiary function and it tempts yet frightens me.

    Heh, I don't personify electrons, but I certainly consider the human element in all "people" situations (regardless of how I choose to respond, which may seem cold).
