My boss is Ti he will create a system after a system for doing things and won't care one bit about my own system because his system is superior always to my own way of doing something. He is an absolute Czar of systems, he doesn't give two cents about what methods (Te) need to be employed within a system he creates to make it run efficiently (Te) or productively (Te) and will usually not do any of the small and mundane work (Te) within the system/ways of doing something (Ti) that he creates; so take for example the mail; at my work place, he create a system: the mail will be opened by him and then will be divided, by him to the other departments. Now the system that he creates needs work (Te); after a week of doing the work, he falls lazy and behind on the work not taking care of opening the mail and disbursing it to the different departments; Te is the person who would step in and take care of the routine task of meticulously opening the mail and handing it to different departments with lots of care and attention -day after day after day, with happiness and gladness; while Ti person would fall lazy and drop the method, but will get very upset if someone contradicts his system or try to change it; only Ti can evaluate their own system of doing things, they will accept suggestions, but instead of changing the methods within the system, as in handing off duties to someone else who will take care of the mundane Te related work and tasks, Ti will create another system, this other system will be: Office manager (another person involved in the new system) will take care of opening the mail and disbursing it. Again, Ti doesn't care about managing mundane task, so if office manager falls behind on the work then Te will not enforce a policy to fire or rehire a new office manager with better workability, instead will create another system or will add system upon system like, shared duty of opening the mail between office manager and receptionist; what happens with Ti is that all of these systems without Te (combining and efficiency, productivity and working) will not work well unless they get lucky and create a system and hire a Te worker to take care of the work that needs to get done because they won't do it or they will fall short and fall behind. Now Si in service of Te sometime looks like Ti but it isn't because even though SiTe (SLI) will get lazy and bored, given a task or project they really like, they will do meticulous and good strong work at it. My Ti boss will go wrong when he assumes that the customer would have liked him to use the best system/way of handling the care of his patient despite getting consent so will sometimes F up and not get the proper consent to do a procedure because he instituted a system (the best way of doing something) in assumption that that is the best way of going about doing it -this can backfire on Ti people because not everyone sees their way as the best way and their actions can cause them to move on assumptions that they are right and are doing the best thing possible. We've had customers who said, "look, you are the professional here, but your way is not the best way for me." But my boss didn't think about it that way, he is the system maker, he does or follows a protocol of systems in his own mind that makes sense for the recourse or action. This is why Ti will fail to consider other people's ways only going by their own way, which to others, especially other Irrational types, seems too rigid, too strict, nonsense, etc.
Te enjoys looking at the details of the task while keeping the big picture in mind; Ti keeps a big picture in mind and does not do or even conveniently abandons small tasks. Organization is Te; Ti is not involved in the internal workings of order and only concentrates on the external perameters of a task.
I have noticed that with Te, they organize my thoughts very well while if I have scattered and tidbit thoughts, a Ti will ask me to organize them first before addressing them.
Te likes to tell people how to do things or they employe the best method in doing something themselves, called algorythmic thinking; if you are annoyed by people telling you how to do something then you probably do not value Te. If you think you are a Te type then you would most likely like being told how the best way to do something is because you ignore Ti you don't take it into account so you may miss a system:
Example, My dual cousin is great at maticulous work. When the floor guys came in to install the new tile, she couldn't figure out the system (the way they should go about in doing the work). I told her the steps or the system which was:
Example of Ti in work... So Ti identifys the system or the steps/ways but doesn't actually do the work; Te does the work within the system.
1. Have them lay the tile.
2. Have them grout.
3. Have them seal the grout.
4. Cover the floors and do the other small work that needs to get done.
Her SiTe husband got to her before I did so this is how the work went without my Ti involvement:
1. They lay the tile.
2. They grouted the tile.
3. They put up the appliances and covered part of the tiles that now can not be reached to seal. -They F-d up here
4. The floor was not covered to do the other work around the home... -They F-d up here again
SUCH A BAD SYSTEM HER HUSBAND IMPLIMENTED...WHY? BECAUSE HE'S SiTe....ahhh. This F-up caused double the work because the grout got damaged by the use of a bad system in doing something.
Anyone else have good examples of Ti/Te?
