"Temperament is the source of the above primal tendencies. Extroversion or introversion is a property of temperament - the former refers to functions that operate from the perspective of being in the external world and addressing memory from the outside, while introverted functions operate within memory and address the external world from the inside."
Let's assume you are looking at two stones, and you are trying to decide which one is bigger. Which function processes this comparison in your view?

"Pure T-processes are straightforward, quantifiable and absolute like A plus B equals C, period. They will force limits on input regardless of its original state so that a quantitative result can be produced. Although setting limits will produce a concrete answer, the results will now have a T-bias. Since T processes need to operate on cold hard facts, personalities that predominantly use them will sometimes be viewed as cold and hard.
Pure F-processes operate only on association, and potential or estimated association; results can be largely indeterminate. For example, one places a value on the relationship between C and A, which depends on the various relationships among A, B and C and how the relationships would be affected by a specific decision or action. In this context, decisions also depend on potential results or an estimate of what could possibly happen (real or imagined); however, there is no way of proving the alternative reality so one may be left with a sense (a feeling) that the right or wrong choice was made. The values placed on various relationships will bias the results, which may seem to lack concreteness because many relationships are rather dynamic. Because of the indeterminate nature of the results, many will view the personalities that predominantly use these processes as soft, or warm and fuzzy. "
How is my example related to a "relative process" or a value-based judgement? 'Comparing sizes of objects' must be a quantifiable judgement, right?
I disagree with you on this. All types compare the sizes of the stones by using Ti. But it is processed differently as well. A person/a type thinks this information is either interesting (3D, 4D) or not (1D, 2D). And a person thinks this informations is either important ("valued") or not ("unvalued").How it's processed will vary with type so a specific information element cannot be attached to this process.

Yes, N or I being referred to as "intuition" is one of the points on which I think Socionics is wrong; it is should refer to information that is of a relative nature. I've made this point on other threads; you simply disagree with my premise so let's leave it at that.......
