    Te = given what is tangible, x is true/false
    Ti = given what I think about, x is true/false

    Te: for saying things that make people go "eww!"

    You have Ne/Ti for that.


    Te is a "Too much information!' kind of eww. Ne/Ti is "You're just making that up!"

    INTJs have Te as their secondary function, but are notorious for their lack of amenability to tangible evidence that they are wrong about something. Te and Ti are not a predisposition to one of coherence or correspondence over the other in the valuation of statements, but probably denote whether or not the thinking function is used in an organizational capacity. Te is demonstrated among the top two functions for xyTJs (it is the primary function of ESTJs and ENTJs, the secondary function of ISTJs and INTJs), while Ti is more pronounced among xyTPs.

    In short, Te is more about planning and executing than epistemological beliefs definition and determination of truth value.

    Te: That isn't a stick up my ass, that's a small tree.
    Ti: All of life is a beautiful system.

    This is probably a good place to put some thoughts I've had lately, is it right to say that Ti deals with chaos a lot better than Te, what I mean is Te reduces complexity (or disregards its existence) and by doing that allows or encourages the Te user to make long term plans. Does Te generally see existence as ultimately simple and stable (and therefore able to be planned and controlled easily), and the Ti user generally sees existence as ultimately complex and dynamic (and therefore hard to plan and control easily).

    LOL - I do get that.

    Fortunately, it takes a hell of a lot to make me say "eww." I more often take off on a tangent (and make things up along the way - hell, it might be true).

    If you're up for anecdotal evidence, I'm usually the first person to be accused of the dread duo of materialism and reductionism.

    But, hell, if I can affect a description of a system which captures all of its behaviors and explains them in terms of only the interactions between that system's constituent parts, then the onus is on the pious little holist to come up with a darn good argument why that description is "too reductionistic". If such a description is given and stands up to experiment, then the proof that the complicated behavior came from an ensemble of simple interactions is in the pudding. My delicious radical empiricism pudding.
