I've always found it odd that INFPs are Te users, since they're stereotyped as being "head in the clouds" and are one of the least practically oriented types (I'd say INFPs and INTPs are the least practical of all MBTI types). Te is concerned with concrete facts and a lot of INFPs seem to be more into philosophical thinking than statistics, which you'd think would be more associated with Ti.

Then again, it is their inferior function, so just because they use Te doesn't necessarily mean they use it well, or in the same way a Te-dom or Te-aux does. Can INFP thinking often represent Ti when it's actually Te for various reasons, such as its interactions with other functions in the stack (I'm particularly thinking of Ne, which can often look like Ti)? Are INFPs less "pure" Te users than other Te-using types, often drawing the shadow function Ti as well?
