    Yes, I very much think like this. Often when I take notes or try to explain things to people, I actually write my thought process out just like this (though I usually put little arrow tips at the end).

    I guess some NT's are more structured in their approach...
    I agree here. I tend to not think in a linear fashion.

    Hey FDG, you should post that article. I like socionics!

    I don't think my thought process narrows down like that. Everything doesn't lead towards one central idea. Things can branch out. Thoughts aren't all destined for one point. The "flow" of my ideas aren't limited to one direction.

    In my case, a more accurate model would be a web. The web has no true center. An approach may have an temporal and arbitrary center, but it's just a point in the continuum of ideas. I'd also make this web 3-dimensional. There are concepts that are interwoven in each level, but each level uses these concepts differently.

    I'm something of a linear thinker, but my thinking isn't defined by the "narrowing down" approach.

    That one point where the branches ends is just the ansver for one question. If you dont end up to one point in thinking process, how do you find the right ansver for the question?

    If you would try to figure out a person for example, i could see a web, with this kind of branches sticking out of it.

    When using info that you arent sure about, you could combine some of the branches with hypotethical lines to make web like thing.

    I still prefer my own model. I think it captures the essence of "When you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good" moreso than the one in the OP.

    But is this seriously some known thinking pattern? If so i feel pretty damn proud of myself for figuring this out all by myself
    you mean for finally understanding what ne+ti means?

    yay you.

    Before you form eny branches you look out enything at all, if you dont allready have some facts about the thing you are trying to figure out. Branch forms when something that might be true is thought over so well that it can be coinsidered as fact.

    If id know how id like to make animation with more details and that would show how branches form.

    Yes
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I'd say no from my perspective. You should see my notes - Arrows everywhere, connecting different things, feedback systems here and there. Fun to figure it all out.
