Slightly off on a tangent but related.

Is that common for ISTPs to explain the whys of something to everybody without being asked? INTJs don't explain unless somebody else is "required" to know.

Te is "technical" in that it's quite procedural and works well to troubleshoot things step by step. Which is essentially what you've described except it's Ti driven in ISTP? Is there a difference between the two Ti and Te when it comes to troubleshooting? Or is the difference not so much in the process but what's done with it afterwards? (e.g. tell people about the trouble).
