    Have you read my signature? Innovation is a very very broad term.
    Are you really saying that an "all logic" person can't be creative? Or that creativity requires logic be switched off?
    That's not true, at least not to me. Logic places constraints on the creativity, but that isn't a disadvantage. On the contrary: the requirements and constraints provides a challenge. And creativity thrives on challenge.
    I've written three fantasy books already. I'm finishing a fourth one, and I'm working on the plot of a science fiction story. If that isn't creative, I don't know what is.

    I'm too lazy to rewrite my tl;dr on why not all NTs are logical thinkers, but that's my imho for you.

    Default Logic is limited.

    Yes I said it.

    Logic is limited.


    To come to a correct conclusion based on logic one should have all the facts. If 99% facts are at hand but 1% is missing the whole conclusion could be wrong, due to that 1 missing data.

    And even if one does have all the facts at hand, there is NO GUARANTEE that one would reach the correct conclusion based on logic, no matter how sound it is.

    Logic is limited!

    by logically do you mean rationally? not quiet the same, but yes, i often i think rationally but act "less then rationally" by gambling on the improbable and taking big risks.

    at it's core the source of this is an emotional condition: i have a lot of confidence in my ability to improvise, come up with new solutions, make the best of things, get up if i fall... so the risks don't always seem meaningful to me. sure, real life doesn't always backup that confidence, in fact right now i am in a state where my future seems very uncertain due to bad past decisions that have the unfortunate requirement of "waiting and moving on in life" as part of any viable solution i can see, but generally speaking the rate at which it has done so defies probability.

    i don't think this sort of near-irrational optimism is uncommon for ENTPs.

    Rereading my post; it seems that I complained deductive logic to be of not much use; unless one is doing a scientific experiment or some sort of a research where one probably has all the facts at hand. Sherlock holmes - atleast his intp moments - and ixtps wouldn't approve.
