Being a Ti type you can use Te, but you try to limit it as much as possible so you can revert back to your comfort zone of Ti. Being Te is the opposite, where you can synthesize and systemize things, but you'd more prefer to collect more and more information, with less reflection.
Being crossed between J/P is a bit odd. Perceivers always find comfort in falling back on their perception when they feel lost. Judgers trust more their judgement. Crossed J/P doesn't feel comfortable in either. Whenever they are using their perceiving functions, they feel like they should in some way be judging something, and when they are using their judging function, they feel uncomfortable because want to use their perceiving functions again. Also, they see pure judging types as too rigid, coming to conclusions to quickly, and lacking human quality, but at the same time, view pure perceptive types as flaky, wishywashy, and with the inability to reason.
