Accepting/Producing ...what do they mean?
Am I right in thinking that the producer functions "produce" content of their own kind, or is it that the producer functions "produce" content for their acceptor? So to say, does +Ne produce possibilities, or does it produce logic?
If that were the case, then it would be -Ti which accepts +Ne possibilities.
You are using INTj as a model correct?
Then the possibilities +Ne creates must be logical; as in within the boundaries of the system. Basically the producing +Ne works off of the accepted reality of -Ti. So yeah the -Ti will of course accept the +Ne possibilities because they are logical within the system.
That is my understanding of it anyway.
Awesome. That clears up a lot.

The first time (first time usage = dynamic functions) you pick up info of the accepting kind it is immediately "limiting" (fully known/absolute), while the info of the creating kind is at first "empowering" (contingent/frivolous/hinting at something greater) and only becomes "limiting" when the process of grouping together that marks the transition from Dynamic to Static thought is completed.
Take things like dictionary definitions. Rationals like us pick these up and use them in an immediate way, whereas irrationals will usually go looking for the reason why a word is defined as meaning a certain thing. You can easily convice a rational by pointing out such a definition. Not so with irrationals. Smilingeyes' approach to typology was to relate everything to a definition. This is the rational way of thinking.
One thing to keep in mind, though, is that Static Accepting functions work MUCH different from Dynamic Accepting functions. The latter simply register and play by the rules. The former make an attempt at "guessing" at what is going on in an underdetermined part of the situation. Accepting Ti, for example, is all about jumping conclusions to an interpretation of a fact. But: it takes none of the particular results for granted. The result is "one out of many", "just an attempt" and it is only when all elements within a certain context are explored that the person will consider the situation fully understood.
