    The way it seems to me:

    Te is what enables me to be totally rational and realistic in dealings with the external world.

    Ni is what I really believe; the way I really see the world.

    Te means that I only take the logical course of action; this is what works in practice, brings about the best results, etc. Ni is what allows me to simultaneously doubt the assumptions on which Te based its decisions. Ni recognises that there can be no certainty, ever, but Te won't often let other people know that I think that.

    Edit: If I only used Ni, I would be perpetually confused, unable to interact with an unstable and unknowable reality. Te lets me ignore that confusion for the purposes of acting in the world.

    It's also useful for expressing Ni ideas in a logical, approachable format for others.

    Our identity is an Ni dom.

    We use Te.

There is also a favored extraverted process that is relatively limited, in the sense that an extraverted process is constricted by the outer world and thus relfected upon the more finite structure of the outer world.

    If you want to ask an xNTJ how it is possible that the relatively harnessless Ni could be limited by the relatively harnessing Te and still achieve synergy, the same could be asked of you -an ENFP- how the relatively harnessless Fi could be limited by the relatively harnessing Ne and still achieve synergy. I would ask: how could one achieve synergy without the presense of a cognitive process that maintains its roots in the outer world to compliment a process that reflects upon the vastness of one's inner world?

    In general, for an xNTJ, Te is a standard basis of measure by which the visions of Ni may be checked to determine which visions are worthy of action or not. After all, Te in both extraverted (focused on the outer world) and judgmental (focused on information processing), resulting in actions upon the outer world.

    Yep, pretty much.

    ^ while that is definitely true, it's a tiny little bit difficult to relate to. Couple o reasons:

    Technical: I don't think Ni can exist without some judgment function on hand to provide focus. (Side Q: STPs: is your intuitive world Ti-flavoured or Fe-lickable? Or--Gawd--both?)

    Pragmaticalistical: Who sees Ni? Almost no one, I think. It's a rare, rare thing to see it in others. It must be there, lots of types have it, but the Doms, I rarely come across them. When I do, and recognise them, it's like floating along in the ocean and realising you just passed a gigantic iceburg. A weighty and relate-able iceburg. So i assume no one sees Ni much. Thus, Te's what I've got for being around people, by and large. So it's become part of the identity? Or has it? Dunno. Have to think about it.

    Do other people see someone else's Ni?

    Best way to get to an Ni+Te is make them talk about themselves. But dont ask me how that's to be accomplished

    When my Te-lookout and Fi-telegraph have repeatedly announced calm waters and clear course I'll command full speed ahead to the machinist downstairs and go for dinner while the music's playing. When I suddenly get thrown to the ground and hear the relentless roar of impenetrable metal being torn up, my last thought before going down will be: I've found Ni.

    If you stop thinking of them as conflicting forces, things make a lot more sense.

    Intuitive functions have two asapects, as far as I can see, an possibility generating side and an information processing side.

    Ne and Ni both throw up possibilities, but Ne uses the current environment and situation as inspiration. As an introverted function, Ni needs little or no outside stimulous to work. It will throw up ideas that have nothing to do with what is currently happening, and possbily have no parallel with anything that was existed before! In a primary Ni, the subconcious mind is continually churning away throwing up random ideas and thoughts, forming a great big heap that the auxillary function sorts through. For an intj, Te looks through all the idea, judging which are likely to happen, could be made to happen, or prevented from happening. It is this that gives INTJs their reputationfor contingency planning, as they frequently thought of it long before the situation ever arose. On those occations where we are caught out by something we missed, we don't usually think as fast as an Ne, which is why we prefer to take our time and work out everything in advance, constructing procedures to deal with all eventualities, which is probably where the nickname "mastermind" comes from.
