    My father told me that INTP is the 'definer'.

    If you look at most "arguements" with INTPs involved it's a common habit to try to define things correctly. Sort of ensuring the basis for conversation is correct before engaging in the actual subject being discussed.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I think this is going in the right direction, at least to the type of critic that INTPs would be.

    All people sense, intuitors included, and Te and Ti are the same mechanism.

    Hmmm....

    In my opinion:

    Analysis - Ti (deconstructor). Yeah, the nitpicking function.

    Synthesis - Te

    In my opinion, INTPs could be better critics than the TJ because of the former's flexible P function which needs to be adaptive in criticizing various forms of art (film, etc.) or system. Not everything should be judged the same.

    TJs tend to apply a universal objective elaborate guideline to everything.

    I'm gonna point out that Ti is certainly about precision, but it's also about The Truth in the largest sense of the word. The pursuit of this Truth generally involves the intellectual building of complex models and algorithms to encompass and express said vast idea. Indeed, the model needed to complete the logical processing and honing can (and usually does) end up being more complicated than the idea itself. Ti Ne used appropriately is about distilling concepts out of the ether, purifying and testing them intellectually, then deriving more knowledge from them. It can be used as a knife, slicing up flawed arguments and propositions, but is primarily used in creation and (where critique comes in) distillation.
    "The subject chooses to sit in shadow and search for wisdom by reflecting upon his trial. The problem is not that he is cold and wet, but that cold and wet seems problematic, so he embraces those hardships in order to best them."

    Ti Ne Fi Ni

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    One of my closest friends is an INTP. Sometimes, we do a group chat with some of our mutual friends and she picks on their grammar. I notice, but don't bother saying anything because it's not something the people being corrected will realistically change. Why bother? My friend doesn't care though. Wrong is wrong, to her.
