# Thread: Te vs. Ti

1. ## Te vs. Ti

Which function is concerned with the application of formal logic, Ti or Te?

Is it possible for someone with a strong Thinking preference to have a weak ability to apply formal logic?

The intent of this thread is to clarify certain aspects of the thinking preference as based upon what I have read since joing this forum I am almost certain I have a preference for Thinking. Nevertheless I can think of several powerful reason to support a conclusion that I have a preference for feeling.

2. what's formal logic?

3. I think extraverted functions are for application..

Ahh, that would be the logic that is often taught in math and philosophy classes. Here's a smattering of well-known terms: Modus ponus, fallacies of logic, red herring, straw man, etc.

IMHO, it is the application of reason to evaluate statements and forming conclusions.

ewwww.... that stuff's nasty! I'd definitly associate it with Te instead of Ti, since you don't see STPs sitting around reading philosophical texts, but you see people with Te, like INTPs and such, being interested in such stuff!

You can definitly be a Thinker who hates math and philosophy!

I agree. Although I like both I know a number of "thinkers" who do not.

INTPs main function is Ti not Te.

8. That's great, but how does Te differ from Ti?

9. that's ok! I got mixed up a bit I don't remember other people's functions as well as my own!

I'd associate love of philosophy with N, not T particularly!

Te is more of an organizational process, and Ti is more of an internally taking apart things and figuring out how they work.
