Thread: Ti/Te users: Explain the differences.

1. This is good Athenian, though

One you usually do more than the other. Well developed Ti actually makes for the best analyst. Te is occasionally like troubleshooting.
Modification is applied more to Ti, otherwise replacement. See one with Te will take into account knowledge "A" and knowledge "B" of a subject wherever applicable, like you have said "procedures." One with Ti in a given situation will revert to knowledge "A" until he finds reason that knowledge "B" of the subject is more suitable.

To be put a few ways:

Te is exercising knowledge and Ti is gaining an understanding.

Te's motive is distinguished, Ti's motive is selective.

Te is technical, Ti is mathematical.

Te may take one solution at a time, observing the process. Ti may input the question into a predetermined equation thus falling full proof of their original understanding.

Te "just the way it is right now" - seeking solution. Ti "whatever doesn't fit doesn't apply" -seeking clarity

Ti may be seen as less rational, but that's because it is less conventional. Most people are extroverts thus most primary thinkers have Te.

2. Athenian 1, lemons 0.

3. Ti is careful reasoning.

Te is efficient reasoning.

I find it hard to disagree with that...But not because it's correct, because it doesn't mean anything.

5. Ti versus Te - please explain

Still not clear on the differences. They sound kind of the same to me.

(yep, I'm doubting my type).

6. Thanks Jack. I'm also going to read some of the Extroverted S-types.

(What I'm really doubting is my level on E versus I. I've always thought that I was towards the middle of the spectrum but a little more on the I-side. Now, that I'm out of the funk I was on for quite some time, I believe I'm slightly on the E side).

7. Suggestion, think of it more in terms of what realm you like to spend time in (introverted world versus extraverted world) rather than in terms of how bombastic you are or similar.

8. *sigh*

I guess I failed then to properly educate people....

Ti is T applied internally. Te is T applied externally. They are one and the same.

See the differences between E and I for your definitions if you still want them.

9. Introverted world = time alone thinking, making plans, etc.
Extraverted world = out with people, socializing

Is this what you mean?

Lately I've noticed that I'm happiest when I'm out and about, being around others, feel more energized and alive. When I look back at the happiest times in my life - it was when I was more outgoing and leading people. But I've gotten into this rut staying home with the kids and being so isolated - and convincing myself that this is making me happy.
