Hello! Thanks for visiting and please enjoy the free info below!
Just fyi, you can find me over at www.dorisfullgrabe.com from now on, where I'm making custom lettering and calligraphy.

You're using extraverted Thinking or Te when you're organizing thoughts or things. When you're being effective and efficient. When you use systems and sequences to help you do your work. When you reach conclusions easily and objectively. When you plan for success, and notice if something isn't in order.
For people with Te as their dominant function, they cannot not structure their inner and outer environment. They are likely to take charge, supporting their decisions with logical facts and leaving personal or subjective feelings at the door.
Expats using Te to decide on an assignment are likely to trust factual data over personal feelings, and may rush to conclusions. Since an international relocation is a complex decision with many factors, it is helpful to take time thinking through various angles and consider the impact on all family members. An attractive relo package in the short term may not compensate a career break for your spouse in the long run.
If Te is in different positions in your type dynamics, below is an overview pieced together with only a few items taken from Understanding Yourself and Others, An Introduction to the Personality Type Code, by Linda V. Berens and Dario Nardi. Let me say this again to be very clear: the description of how Te can be expressed in the different positions is not exhaustive and only meant to give you an overview. I would love to have you comment below how it shows up for you.
If you'd like to practice your Te skills, start by using tools like step-by-step checklists, your calendar, or Excel spreadsheets. Focus on objective arguments, facts, and data when presenting information and making decisions. Pay attention to specific words those around you use. Try finding a place for everything and keeping everything in its place, e.g. starting with your desk.
