    Default Do NTJ use evidence more?

    are NTJs more inductive while NTPs are more deductive?

    I think it's the opposite, NTJs seem to be more deductive. Care to explain your theory?

    Agree with Lit. NTP seem much more inductive. Elaborate on your theory please!

    My idea seem to usually form from the collection of evidence.

    Once evidence rises enough to support an idea, I recognize it and focus on it.

    Isn't that inductive?

    Am I NTP?

    Logic is deductive reasoning which is highly abstract.

    NTPs are Ti types. Ti is introverted and more in tune with the realm of mind and abstraction. NTJs are Te types. Te is extroverted and more in tune with the physical world than with the realm of mind. One who is more in tune with the realm of mind tends to rely on abstract reasoning more than experiences with the physical world.

    Ti types are more in tune with the world of abstraction than with the physical world, therefore they tend to use deduction more than induction. Te types are more in tune with the physical world and therefore use induction more than deduction, as induction is grounded in experience and observation more than a mere abstract reasoning process.

    no that's deductive

    It does seem to me that NiTe would lead one to move more from the general to the specific (deductive) whereas TiNe would lead one to move from the specific to the general (inductive).

    Then again, it would not surprise me if NeTi moved from the general to the specific, and if TeNi moved from the specific to the general. Is it possible that intuition being primary or secondary to thinking could play a role?

    EDIT: But wait...evidence...wouldn't "evidence" be used in both styles? Pardon me, my understanding of this is only rudimentary. Or are the rules and theorems presumably used in deductive reasoning, not considered evidence? Wait, yes, that must be it. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
