Thumbs up On Judging Functions

First, I will confess that I initially was doing more generalizing and these generalizations (e.g., that I thought you had an Fe PoLR without backing up my conclusion) understandably frustrated you because I wasn't giving you much reasoning to argue against. However, in my defense, this is an INTj trait. From wikisocion's INTj description:
The LII may explore many avenues of thought, but in the end only tell others his refined conclusions, because he sees the intermediate steps as irrelevant. He is often too concise for his own good, making it difficult for others to understand his ideas. "

And I think the previous paragraph shows the INTj-INTp difference between us. I don't rely on a lot of facts to make conclusions (through deductive reasoning and because I'm too lazy (Ne) to spend the time finding all the relevant facts). And this is undoubtedly could be perceived as a strength or weakness of the INTj (that is the ability to make decisions based on little information). And I don't really deem the steps of my analysis to be very important--only the refined conclusions. You on the other hand, as a Te would, loves to find and assess facts and their accuracy. And as a Te, demand (justifiably) to see the steps taken by me in how I reached my conclusion. You want to see my sources of information.
That is certainly true - because I view this forum as an avenue for information I may try to encourage that aspect though I typically appear quite reticent in public. You will also sense this INTJ quality expressed in me as an impatience for speculation (as I have already finished brainstorming and am sharing my relevant conclusions with you). However, I try to provide ample information for you to process when that is true. You must realize that my intuition is both introverted and extroverted, and always active. My thinking function serves mostly to explore and justify my expectations in a methodical fashion. I do not separate the process and conclusion but rather view them as Štiologically related in the most absolute sense, and fundamentally inseparable (as one entity with which to deal). I am also well versed in many forms of ontological and epistemological inference, so I can seem quite critical of references. I am also well equipped to make decisive statistical assumptions with very little data, as I stated earlier I believe that this is why I am classified as INTJ and not INTP, which I had previously believed I was.
