And yes I did provide the link to 8 saying that it's fucking great. (Making so much more sense for me than the 7's description on the same site)
Hmm okay.I've seen a lot of function test results here but very little data is available from ISTPs. The neat thing about function tests is that they provide more information about you than the MBTI. Because of Te being so close to Ti, You are probably an ambivert with a slight lean toward introversion. This doesn't say anything about being chatty or not, and in fact some of the most extroverted people I've known were not chatty, just workaholics and self-starters.
The being chatty thing is interesting, I can be chatty online. I'm not really like that offline/IRL. As I said, it's like my attention is directed differently IRL than when I'm at the computer.
Whatever that says about my cognitive preferences, heh.
Does your inventory measure functions directly?I have an inventory that quite a few here have taken. It can help you get a better handle on what the "Ti > Te" is all about.
