    My opinion: yeah ISTP can look the most NT-like and I relate to that... I don't know from experience if ISFP can look NF-like just as much but by definition yes it would. As the Ni is in the same place. Talking generally of course, not of individual cases.

    I'd like to add a few comments especially on what I think Ti is like or not like, compared to Ni etc.

    I don't experience Ti as linear logic. Though I bet it's not as non-linear as Ni, alright :P

    Can you elaborate on why and how you think ESTP's are that efficient at utilizing intuition in either mental or physical tasks? Not questioning, I'm just curious.

    Heh I sometimes can't tell where Ti ends and where Ni begins because the Ti stuff often just feels like I'm perceiving whatever inside my mind. It's an abstract intangible nonverbal thing but I sometimes even see something in a visual way and that can be symbolic. However all that perception is limited to logical constructs so I know it's still Ti. And of course, conclusions are made from the perceptions => Ti judging

    Considering these distinctions, I don't see TiNi loop bringing Ni to an even plane with Ti. Most of the access to Ni is controlled through Ti. That is, I tend to only have insights in topics that I already made sense of.

    Sure I have experienced more direct Ni too but that's rare. And I think the Ti is usually still there because it's still stuff that I've thought about with Ti before. That is, there was already some logical analysis based on my observation. Just maybe in these cases it's been a while since I last thought about the topic I got the insight about and so it's not noticeable to me that it's actually still Ti-related Ni.

    The only really "Ti-less" Ni that I've seen about myself is linked to Fe stuff. Or some generic F stuff, anyway.. some of it's negative, like negative estimates about people's attitudes; but not all of the stuff is negative.

    So... How about you? Is your Ni stronger than this? Less controlled by Ti when in TiNi loop?

    I would like to say, my Ti isn't deductive much. I'm very inductive naturally. I only grudgingly use deduction. I see its use though. Now my problem, I never understand those people who try to link functions to other cognitive traits like this about induction vs deduction. It's useless trying to so strongly correlate functions with that. Well you can do that but it's no longer going to be the same concept as in the original system and that has consequences.

    Also, I don't have a straight line of reasoning by default. I can do that, if I need to communicate my thoughts in that way. But even when I wrote papers at university where I did heavily utilize such way of putting my thoughts, the whole written paper was still seen as very holistic by me. (As much as I could make it with the limited resources in fleshing out an idea and exploring it in real experiments.) Overall, straight line of reasoning is too one-dimensional seriously. I have seen that associated with Te but I'm again not sure if it's such a good idea to link the two. Nothing in the core concept of either Ti or Te makes it necessary.

    I would say this depends on the area of where the ISP tries to use Ni.

    That one's true about being literal. Good point

    Though of course, it's just a good example of how traits of the mbti dichotomies aren't so neatly consistently linked with the dichotomies or the functions :/ E.g. here, being literal is an S trait supposedly but can be T trait too.

    I'm saying the same to you as to Zarathustra, it depends on the area of life, whether I trust intuition or not. Tbh when I wouldn't trust intuition, it - generation of insights - doesn't even get active so it's all cool that way as I know it wouldn't be working anyway. (Ti kicking Ni out pretty effectively I guess )

In real life, his attitude seems more devil-may-care. I think part of why he seems so intuitive, according to the colloquial sense of the word, is just the fact that his intuitions are so deeply housed in who he is. They're simple, discrete, and they serve his own purposes; when I visualize how his mind works, it appears compact, yet efficient. He has a level of certainty that sharply contrasts with the typical INXX tendency to over-analyze. From this perspective, it seems like iNtuitives ironically impede themselves with their dominant/auxiliary functions.
    As ISTP, I've actually been told I overanalyze. Because I try to explain my thoughts well enough (precision?). I don't actually overanalyze inside my own mind if it means overthinking things, it's usually analysis automatically done in the fraction of a second. Nonverbally of course. Putting it into words is much slower and more tedious. You actually mention it's a tedious process about trying to be precise about explanations hahaha. Though it does apply to gaining an understanding too, not just explaining it. That, gaining a precise understanding, can be a tedious process too but it's alright. That's also what can be seen as overanalyzing, I guess.


    Ti bears qualities that abstract information, but its level of tedious precision adds weight to the argument that ISTPs are less "intuitive", overall. Meanwhile, Fi (while exercising its own level of precision) seems less honed in on the objective world (objectivity being a strength of sensing). So, if we're to assume that each function, while different, holds aspects of equal measure, then Fi starts to look more "intuitive" when compared to Ti.
    As for Fi (or Ti) looking more intuitive, I still say this depends on in which area you apply Fi vs Ti.

    He didn't actually say that. He meant "intuitive" in the sense of having N preference over S preference. The wording was not the best though, yes.


    You sound like a rather underdeveloped fellow ISTP i know personally.
    Assumptions much? Without using actual data? Intuition?


    and not some one line blanket statement, which uses the assumption that a preference (i.e Sensing over Intuition) is absolute and not changeable. Good day.
    Actually, by definition, preference is absolute. Preference means more "use" of a function over another function overall. Though, if someone changes type then of course that means that - at least one - preference is changed.

    Interesting! Would you mind describing how you experience it? When my INTP dad and ISTP brother voice it, it sounds linear to me or at least like they see some kind of coherent, immutable logical background scheme that they are operating with. The way I experience Fi it is sort of hard to access and explain sometimes. I always perceived Ti to be more clear and structured. Maybe this is not the case.

    I think it varies from ISTP to INTP. For ISTPs, I think Ti backed by Se is more body-based, almost instinctual, whereas (I assume) it is more conceptual and concerned with endless theorizing when backed by Ne in the case of INTPs. In both Ti dom types, I think there is a strong potential for a natural mastery/understanding of spatial relationships and distances, although perhaps not in same way as might be seen in types with strong Te (not worse or better, just very different). I'm talking out my ass here and as a result am probably way off the mark.

    About the spatial reasoning/intelligence--I struggled in most math classes yet easily aced geometry with little to no studying. I also excelled at geography whereas other students loathed the subject and struggled with it.

    My Ti/Ni loop is constant, because my Ni is better developed than my Se, and the only way to deal with it is to bring Se in deliberately. It's the reason why i can't get to sleep, and as i'm not taking in new info through Se while laying down at night, it gets very pronounced.

    For me, it's usually just reprocessing information, to the point where i end up with very circular thought processes. What i meant by the loop bringing Ni and Ti to an even plane was that it blocks out Se. So, i do Ti first, rationalizing the information i had from Se, then Ni forming hypotheticals on it, the Ti, rationalizing the hypotheticals... and repeat. I actually have to actively try to get new information (Se) or else i literally drive myself insane, which has happened twice. I would actually describe it as my Ti reacting to my Ni process instead of my Se process like it should.
