Who cut your hair?
So, onto Scenario 3. Below are the key answers for this scenario.
If you ask me, though, I think you use Ti. That second project pretty much explains it.
"...I would understand the whole process. In the first project I'd... force myself to understand..."
You may think that the answer in the first paragraph of 'looking at how my expertise functions in the broader scope of things' show Te. But why do you like looking at it? Is it because you want to know? You want to understand? If so, then you're a Ti user.
The SCENARIO 4 answer is not what the key answers are looking for But that's alright.
I would read your other posts but since it will take a while to analyze it and quote it one by one I'll do it later. It's night here... (10.29 PM.)
Thanks for all of the help Jennifer. I am starting to lean towards ISTP. Would you agree?
I just can't believe how oblivious I was that my guitar playing was very Se. I'm way more interested in physically playing in the moment while using theory as a means to an end (even though I have a pretty strong knowledge and interest in it). I think INTP's might be more interested in the abstracted theory of music and they would take it in all kinds of weird directions that might not even sound good. This might be because they are so concerned with exploring the possibilities of Ti abstraction. Whereas I use my Ti to maximize my performance and prepare myself for anything that may spontaneously arise. I don't know, just an idea.
Someone might even interpret that as Te, but I don't think it is since I don't learn guitar for some bigger practical reason, I just have fun learning and developing a hands on skill.
Random thought, I'm pretty sure I could rationalize myself as any type to someone lol
Based on post #55 I can see why you're ISTP :) Especially the part about playing the guitar.
