    For what it's worth, my coworker (yes this old chestnut) is an ENTP (he took a type instrument test administered by a professional) and his ability to memorize details (passwords, IP addresses, host names, etc.) is very weak.

    Mmmmm... why call them ENTP if they don't have a thinking preference as well? You could just go with ENP. There are different (seems to me) assertions of the Extraverted intuition type. Some people are in the middle though, so your model could work.

    Don't shoot

    As usual, I cannot cite my source but preferences are not established at birth, rather they develop over time. And I do not know the time line of development but apparently the T/F and P/J preferences are developed later in life (~ after 30 years old?). So if this is true then it is possible that a pre-30 year old ENTP could identify as an ENTP yet have a weak preference for Ti.

    Define what exactly you mean by "weak preference."

    A rational person whose logical and analytical abilities have not yet fully developed. However, he or she shows some traces of Ti.

    Hello, and welcome. The first has an 'e' after the 'T' and the second has an 'i' after the 'T'.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    Te is external-directed thinking.
    It focuses on the most efficient/productive way to accomplish things.
    Its goal is to "get the job done."
    Closure in the external world is the goal.

    Ti is internal-directed thinking.
    It focuses on "what things are" and how they should be defined and how they work together, like a large system, based on their inherent properties.
    Its aims to explain and understand, rather than "getting something done."
    It doesn't necessarily need to "do anything" with the ideas once they're figured out.

    If you know anything about computer coding, the Te function is more like, "Okay, here's the piece of software we need to create: Let's get started and get it done," setting down practical steps and then actually doing them.

    Ti is more like, "What objects do we need to create behind the scenes? What are their properties? What's the architecture of this piece of code? How does it fit into the big picture?" It will set up all the objects needed to write the actual code but sees writing the code more as the afterthought than as the focus.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Ti/Te logic merged with Ti vs. Te. Have a nice day!

    I have not read of this being as a Te v. Ti thing, but I find that writing my thoughts down really helps me to clarify them and understand them.

    Sometimes my thoughts seem a little disorganized till I can write them down.
