    What Type of Thinker Are You? The Difference Between Extraverted and Introverted Thinking - Psychology Junkie



    Extraverted Thinking (Te) - Personality Growth



    Socionics Information Elements: Te


    In this case, I think she was using Te, because it seems like her brain quickly ran and chose the most efficient algorithm to achieve two goals (getting her kid enough money for a field trip fee and making sure she had laundry money readily available). There was a definite logic involved in her decision, though not an internalized, deliberated, ponderous logic (Ti) in this particular case. It was swift and results-oriented.
    Ah, right, I'm steering clear of internet sources/blogs and am not interested in (don't believe in) Socionics.
    Have you got anything more true to the theory?
    From Jung himself if possible, of Marie-Lousie von Franz? Van der Hoop? Something that's basically not an internet article because I find them all to be too "MBTI" and I'm only coming at this from a Jungian perspective (which Myers deviates from way too much for my liking).

    I understand it's correct from an internet-MBTI perspective - I was curious as to whether there was any support from Jung or Jungian sources, though.

    @Turi - Can you elaborate on the difference for me? Specifics, if possible.

    adjective: deliberately impassive or expressionless.

    I'm not entirely sure what you're after - I don't see "Te" as having anything to do with "convenience" and/or "efficiency", directly - I see them as possible byproducts of Thinking in the extraverted attitude but surely not something to hang your hat on as reliable to type with.

    I see "Te" as simply Thinking in the Extraverted attitude, as Jung did - essentially "a linking up of ideas by means of a concept, in other words, to an act of judgment" - I view this as reasons in the ordinary, dictionary definition of the word (a cause, explanation, or justification (the linking up of ideas by means of a concept) for an action or event - in context, an act of judgment) - primarily oriented towards objective, outer-world data.

    This is to say, I view "Te" as types that are oriented towards making decisions that make sense - stripped of Feeling values - in accordance with external information.. and that's it.

    In and of themselves, I don't believe "convenience" or "efficiency" have a whole lot to do with "Te".
