    Default The Tool song "46&2" is about gaining Ni.

    "My shadow's

    Shedding skin and
    I've been picking
    Scabs again.
    I'm down
    Digging through
    My old muscles
    Looking for a clue.

    I've been crawling on my belly
    Clearing out what could've been.
    I've been wallowing in my own confused
    And insecure delusions
    For a piece to cross me over
    Or a word to guide me in.
    I wanna feel the changes coming down.
    I wanna know what I've been hiding in

    My shadow.
    Change is coming through my shadow.
    My shadow's shedding skin
    I've been picking
    My scabs again.

    I've been crawling on my belly
    Clearing out what could've been.
    I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
    And insecure delusions.

    I wanna feel the change consume me,
    Feel the outside turning in.
    I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
    Cleansing I've endured within

    My shadow
    Change is coming.
    Now is my time.
    Listen to my muscle memory.
    Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
    Forty-six and two ahead of me.

    I choose to live and to
    Grow, take and give and to
    Move, learn and love and to
    Cry, kill and die and to
    Be paranoid and to
    Lie, hate and fear and to
    Do what it takes to move through.

    I choose to live and to
    Lie, kill and give and to
    Die, learn and love and to
    Do what it takes to step through.

    See my shadow changing,
    Stretching up and over me.
    Soften this old armor.
    Hoping I can clear the way
    By stepping through my shadow,
    Coming out the other side.
    Step into the shadow.
    Forty six and two are just ahead of me."


    My Ni is exploding right now. I just grasped the fundamental theorem of online poker and Ne is going nuts with the implications.


    EDIT: Holy crap so is "Lateralus."

    Black then white are all i see in my infancy.
    red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
    lets me see.
    as below, so above and beyond, I imagine
    drawn beyond the lines of reason.
    Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

    Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
    Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
    Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

    Black then white are all i see in my infancy.
    red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
    lets me see there is so much more and
    beckons me to look thru to these infinite possibilities.
    as below, so above and beyond, I imagine
    drawn outside the lines of reason.
    Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

    over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
    Withering my intuition leaving opportunities behind.
    Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
    Reaching out to embrace the random.
    Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

    I embrace my desire to
    I embrace my desire to
    feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow
    to feel inspired to fathom the power, to witness the beauty,
    to bathe in the fountain,
    to swing on the spiral
    to swing on the spiral
    to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

    With my feet upon the ground I move myeslf between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
    I feel it move across my skin.
    I'm reaching up and reaching out. I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
    what ever will bewilder me.
    And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
    We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
    Spiral out. Keep going.
    Spiral out. Keep going.
    Spiral out. Keep going.
    Spiral out. Keep going.
    Spiral out. Keep going.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    If that's Ni, then I've misinterpreted it.

    I always saw it as more like this:

    We are born of stone
    And etched by wind
    Cast aside to live or die
    We are the pawns in our own game

    Like refugees
    Of silent wars
    We step on ever-shifting ground
    Promoting what we undermine

    For countless days
    We walked alone
    Directionless and vulnerable
    Sitting targets wearing smiles

    CHORUS
    No one of us will go unscathed
    By private battles we have braved
    A vicious circle we have built
    Constructed from our shame and guilt

    The flags we wave
    Are set afire
    To warm the bones of infant dreams
    Even as our present is set ablaze

    The tinderbox
    We sit upon
    Decays in churning mists of fog
    And crumbles down into the sea

    (Chorus)

    We lie embraced
    In the arms of dawn
    The fading echoes of pointless time
    Statuettes of Ignorance

    And even as
    The clock hand sweeps
    We pay no mind to where we are
    Surely we're not allowed to die
    Or this:

    I'm searching for answers
    Cause something is not right.
    I follow the signs,
    I'm close to the fire.

    I fear that soon you'll reveal
    Your dangerous mind.

    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    I fear your smile and the promise inside.
    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    I fear your presence, I'm frozen inside.

    I'm searching for answers
    Not questioned before.
    The curse of awareness,
    There's no peace of mind.
    As your true colors show
    A dangerous sign.

    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    I see the truth that you've buried inside.
    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    There is no mercy, just anger I find.

    I just have to know, while I still have time.
    Do I have to run, or hide away from you?

    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    I see the truth that you've buried inside.
    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    There is no mercy, just anger I find.

    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    I see the truth that you've buried inside.
    It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
    There is no mercy, just anger I find. I find.
    And more negatively, perhaps this:

    Everybody tries to be straight,
    But things are still unchanged,
    It's useless to resist,
    Their effort will be wasted.
    Head straight for your goal by any means,
    There is a door that you've never opened,
    There is a window with a view you have never seen,
    Get there, no matter how long it takes.

    Oh dark, the darkness that dozes in the dusk,
    Throw it all away.
    No-one can break you, nobody can tear you,
    You live an endless life forever.
    Oh dark, the darkness that dozes in the dusk,
    Throw it all away.
    You see a light wherever you go,
    You have to face it again and again.
    And again and again and agaiiiiin!

    (INSTRUMENTAL)

    Oh dark, the darkness that dozes in the dusk,
    Throw it all away.
    No-one can break you, nobody can tear you,
    You live an endless life forever.
    Oh dark, the darkness that dozes in the dusk,
    Throw it all away.

    That's the NF version of Ni.

    I guess I'm looking more at the purely conceptual/impersonal T kind.

    Yeah Maynard is definitely INJ.

    P.S. Have you heard all that shit about how 46 and two refers to the human race getting two extra chromosomes? So random.

    I used to say INTJ for Maynard but now I actually think pissy INFJ maybe?

    Hard to say.

    Honestly, it sounded more S than T. The metaphors were too physical.

    I wouldn't call them "impersonal," so much as overly cathartic and Fi-ish sounding.

    This is what I think of as impersonal Ni:

    Now we live in desperate times
    Standing ground behind the lines
    Watch your back, obey the signs
    Can't avoid the futile crimes

    Laws will pass, so laws will break
    Pay the price for one mistake
    What you've earned someone will take
    Realize the games we make

    Life's short, and time will fly
    Years pass before our eyes
    Stand now and wonder why
    Crime pays, and then you die

    Things change, but in the end
    Fair play cannot contend
    Believe you will ascend
    Crime pays, I can't pretend

    INFJ seems like it might fit better, but I honestly have no idea.

    so wrong, yet again. 46 & 2 is a reference to the # of chromosomes in a human (23 pairs and 1 gender pair), and the song is about the corruption of the human form and it grows and decays in this world. But hey, don't let me stop you on your mission, son!

    Care for an * with that, Captain Sensor?

    Grow some Ni and we'll talk.

    The last lyrics you posted are still a bunch of moralizing. NTs don't tend to write about that.

    whatever you say admiral S, the song is obviously about the tug and pull of nature and nurture on each other. And if what YOU'RE doing is Ni, then I'll gladly stay the fuck away and maintain ignorance.

    Captain S, out.
