INTP, ENFP: antisocial or lazy?
  • ENFP:why do you always leave off in the middle of our text conversations? like we're having a nice chat and then all of a sudden you disappear, then message me back the next day like nothing happened.
  • INTP:well nothing did happen, you're right about that.
  • ENFP:then why do you stop responding??
  • INTP:it takes a lot of effort to be social ok
  • ENFP:c'mon it's not that difficult. plus that's not even being social you just have to press letters on your phone and respond to whatever the other person sent you
  • INTP:yeah exactly
  • ENFP:
  • INTP:
  • ENFP:so are you antisocial or just lazy?
  • INTP:yes

  • Noticing logical flaws in works of fiction and having thoughts like “Okay, but (thing) couldn’t possibly happen because (scientific fact)”, “Why did (character) (do something or solve a problem a certain way) when they could have more easily (action or solution that involves something established earlier in the story)?”, “It may not take place in our universe, so it could make perfect sense within the context of its own universe”, and “It’s just fiction, it doesn’t matter, the writer(s) just made a mistake or did that for storytelling purposes nbd”

  • Both:*point at each other*
Te vs Ti irl

I always am hard-pressed with Te and Ti to highlight concrete examples that show their differences, because so often descriptions get vague/generic, using phrases like “theory” and “logic” which is hard to ground. But, in a conversation I had with a Ti-dom (myself being auxiliary Te), several things came up which really highlighted the two functions. 

This was a conversation about growing extinct animals in other animals’ wombs. I, a high Te-user, immediately discarded some possibilities because it wasn’t plausible, such as growing a mammoth inside an entirely unrelated species like a panda. To a Te-user, these ideas were interesting to hypothesize about but not very relevant to the conversation at hand. 

On the other hand, my Ti-dom friend was quite willing to go down that rabbit hole. Ti-users care more about exploring every possible angle of a problem, regardless of feasibility.

Throughout that conversation, a Te-user would focus more on what could be done, what technology needed to be improved upon or invented, etc., to resurrect extinct animals.

Meanwhile, the Ti-user cared about making sure every possibility was thoroughly covered, even though they knew full well that some ideas weren’t likely to happen. Ergo, mammoths in pandas.  

Tl;dr A conversation about resurrecting extinct animals shows that Te cares about what will bring about the desired outcome, with less time for side hypothesizing. Ti cares more that every possibility is considered, with less focus on achieving the goal. 

#ti Step daughter arrested with gun at airport - STORY - Zonnique Jailee Pullins, daughter of R&B singer and reality star Tameka “Tiny” Harris and stepdaughter of her husband and rapper T.I., was arrested and charged Thursday for carrying a weapon without a permit at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.

The 20-year-old, a past member of the OMG Girlz R&B group who appears with her parents on T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, had attempted to pass through the TSA checkpoint while carrying a Ruger 380 semi-automatic pistol, police said.

A worker saw the weapon on an X-Ray machine and notified a supervisor. Pullins told authorities she had a weapons permit but one was not found. She was then placed under arrest and taken to jail, police said, while her gun was confiscated. She was released Friday morning.

Pullins has not commented, nor has her mother and stepfather. She faces a charge of carrying a weapon at a commercial service airport without a permit, which is a misdemeanor, court records show.
