    Default Is this a NTJ thing ?

    When you learn do you learn much better if you know very well what to do with data you are trying to learn/understand ?

    How quickly do you forget large amorph pile of data if you don't get the chance of applying it ?

    How much do you like to learn things that will be needed for winning of some kind ?




    Opinions and comments are welcome.

    Yes this sounds very much like a Te thing. There's no point in learning something (or doing anything that requires signifcant effort, for that matter) if there's no external goal to apply it towards. If there's no external goal, then it's a waste.

    NTPs are completely different in that they are entertained by some sort of external stimulus (particularly ENTPs) to soak up and analyze to fit towards an increasingly larger web, even if the web is never really used for anything. The entertainment value is enough in itself to continue acquiring knowledge.

    Joy for an NTJ is tangible productivity via knoweldge and personal effort. Knowledge of systems is acquired and valued insofar as to be useful to something outside of the system.

    Joy for an NTP is making/discovering novel abstract connections between and among systems through increased understanding of the system(s). Knowledge of a system is acquired and valued regardless of how important the system is outside of itself.

    Ni/Te is convergent.
    Ne/Ti is divergent.

    Is brushing your teeth with Crest toothpaste an NTJ or NTP thing?

    Hmm. Let's think about this.

    NTJs would be more likely to choose a specific toothpaste, where NTPs would be more likely just to buy whatever toothpaste they come across.

    So, if Crest is a better-than-average toothpaste, NTJs would be more likely to choose it; brushing your teeth with Crest toothpaste would thus be a NTJ trait. Conversely, if it's worse than average, NTPs would be more likely than NTJs to use it.

    Making comparative analogies that effectively and accurately communicate an idea is certainly not an NTJ thing. Or at least it's not a Jaguar thing...

    And fyi, NTPs don't brush their teeth.

    NTJs do not need teeth. They live in their minds.

    When you learn do you learn much better if you know very well what to do with data you are trying to learn/understand ?
    Being clear about questions is always more important than being clear about answers.

    Get an idea of what you're looking for. Then confirm if it is or is not there. We can't do anything with data if we don't know what we want to find or what to expect first.

    Same thing often works deductively. Sometimes we need to assume something is true in order to prove a contradiction. Propositions don't proposition themselves, just as data does not data itself.
