    You're right; it's basically replacing one vague term with another one.

    Te is "useful" in the sense that it tries to work efficiently within a given system, or "play the system" if you will, whereas Ti is probably more concerned with establishing an efficient system in the first place.
    Efficient in the sense of getting things done with minimal effort (in the most basic, general sense). Of course Te can also be concerned with establishing an efficient system, but only as a means to an end.

    E.g.: Ti: That door is poorly constructed, I could make a better one. Te: I pull at the knob instead of sucking at the door with my mouth and moving backwards to open it because using the knob is the easiest way to open a door. Or something like that.

    Anyway, this thread is still vague. I'd rather debate within given definitions of Ti/Te instead of establishing and discussing definitions/explanations of functions and their usefulness (or "betterness") by the posters themselves.

    Taken in isolation and both functions given some seed information, Ti should win because Te will lack depth and make truth value mistakes all over the place.

    If both functions are allowed to operate with some partner perceiving function... I dunno, maybe Ti still by virtue of depth.


    In which case, such a pity Ti doesn't get to move beyond immediate connections.

    Neither. I prefer the gloating part afterwords.
