I think good example of Ti is with Milton Friedman. Now I don't have enough ram to get a link to the video but you can certainly find it.
Milton was an economist who more of a "market fundamentalist," when you put him in argument with someone trying to bring something into a scenario where it doesn't work "taken to the extreme."
So this kid asks "is it screwed up if an electric company shuts off a guy's power and he ends up dying from that?"
On the flat face of it, yes sure the electric company could easily give the guy a break and let him have electricity for free until his condition improves or whatever.
But Friedman says that kind of misses the principle of how the situation operates. The main idea is supply and demand of course and this relates to resources. Things cost money to obtain because they aren't unlimited. Someone must pay the electric company so we know that resources are allocated efficiently. Imagine if the electric company decided to give free electricity to everyone. It wouldn't work. Take it to the extreme and it is not good. Milton argues that the company is not obligated to help the man and asks why his friends and family wouldn't pay for it. But that's beside the point.
The point is breaking down the system and getting the principle down. If you modify some variable to the extremes and it evidently doesn't make sense, it's no good. Something must "make sense at every level." He did something like that with tax rates in a different video. I think it's good example of Ti and I tend to think that way sometimes. I ought to start thinking more to get more examples, I used think that way a lot in the days of Kant.
