    Default What Te Polr is like

    So anyways I was in umm a social gathering recently. And it was nothing but Te after Te after Te. My polr. I felt frozen in a kind of boredom, paralyzed.... as I heard what they were saying, but I did not care. It didn't give me any energy. Nothing. Not a weakness (as that I can forge into strength) No pain, no embarrassment or humiliation. Just ennui. And you know what Oscar Wilde said about that.

    They started talking about like 'specific, logical newspaper speak' you know. And it was so foreign to me. Basically it was like 7 Expats chatting at once... I looked at their faces. It was like they weren't even human to me. Or that I wasn't even human. I eventually said something very Fe-ish and off the wall , and suddenly the attention clicked back to me. They laughed, trying to emphasize with my discomfort. Of course deep down I wanted an estp to be there to say ' look sam is clearly uncomfortable, talk about something else already' but lacked the balls myself to do this.

    It was just raw facts. Which I don't mind. It's not like I feel I am so ...disconnected from reality. It was just like you know, the uh how certain facts are presented. I'm bad at explaining what Te is, but when I'm getting it I know it. It was just blathering about stuff that I didn't care about because it was just so....darn...not interesting. Like why the hell weren't they talking about improving their own lives or psychological self-improvement or something generally Ni-like? How can you have a conversation about this crap I wondered? I needed some fresh air.

    It's more complicated than that. It's not that I want people to be all lovey dovey woooo emotional and yucky yucky to me. Blargh. It's like Dolphin said, complex thought processes - some that mesh you well with and others you don't.

    That's what polrs do. They make you feel like you don't fucking exist. You can't even hate them, I would say 'Te-ignoring' maybe better than polr. You do feel a hurt I suppose. But it's the crushing, sinking kinda feel of hurt that you can't even fight. It just a quicksand that engulfs you until there's nothing left. And if you have 5 fucking Te-egos yapping to each other at once with you in the background, looking at them as if they were animals in cages; you can only think 'oh god fucking WHY ME?'

    Ni PoLR:

    What I do in my head: sort my mental processes out. I'm a pretty unimaginative guy.

    What I do when people force me to think about timeynesses: freak out and tell them to stop. Can you just let me think about what's happening three months from now three months from now? Why do I need to know at this particular moment?

    My reaction to poetry: D:! I'm allergic to the stuff.

    P.S. Everyone Is Jesus In Purgatory.

    Te polr: have no instinct for profit/costs balance, doesn't worry about unfairness.

    Effeciency often associated with Te, is surprisingly not very undeveloped...


    These are all my own experiences with Te polr people.

    Wait, what? Wouldn't fairness be an thing? (A few other functions came to mind, but that's the only one valued by Gamma.)

    yes it's just interpretation...or I used the wrong words...

    I meant the fairness like everyone should get equal parts etc, fairness in the sense of justice. Maybe things like punishment and reward. Or would that still be to much Fi-like?
