According to the wiki, one of the synonyms for LSI is 'Pragmatist'. I have a hard time understanding that, since I do not consider the LSIs I know pragmatists. In fact, I see pragmatism as a feature of Te, not Ti.
As I have mentioned before, I have a new manager at work who I believe is LSI. She's hired as an interim manager with the task of changing the IT dept. into something more structured, a department that follows procedures and systems (such as ISO, ITIL etc.), and in fact, she's 'good' at it. Bad side to it, is that she's bringing in new people who are more on her side: people who, like her, are better at following procedures (and think that they have done a good job if they have followed the procedure regardless of its outcome).
I was talking to a colleague yesterday who recently joined our department. I believe he's a rational Gamma. He started bitching about the new people and their procedure-oriented attitudes and especially how they are not result-oriented. I thought it was so funny, it was a typical complaint of a Te-valuing person against a Ti approach. I could only concur.
My question is: what is it that validates the label 'pragmatist' for LSIs? I don't see it.
