Apologies for the language, but this horseshit has nothing to do with psychological types. It may be how "Objective Personality" defines things, "corrupting" terminology even more, but that is of no use to anyone.Te doms can't think for themselves, so they frequently have to read books or collect and obsorb external information. Te users, like Fe users who obsorbs Fi, Te users obsorb the thinking of Ti users.
Te users will mirror the Ti user, giving the impression that the Te user is smarter, yet it is the Ti user and not the Te users who is intelligent.
Unlike Te users Ti users don't need to take notes to logically understand something, they can understand it in their own unique way. Most technologies have been developed and designed by Ti users.
Te users can understand and obsorb all that information but they can't think for themselves until they have absorbed a lot from the Ti users around them, However, Te users are extremely sensitive to being labelled dumb, so they put on a show of intelligence to avoid being labelled as such.
