    Default Ni and Si Doms: What does the internal world look like?

    As an ENFP I have recently realised I understand everything by looking out. I judge it by something that is from within. And I ponder these judgments, and the meaning of what is within, what it is to be human, etc. But I never have a clear picture of within and actually see it. So what do you see within? What's in this strange realm that you guys have dominant function access to? What are we missing?

    Internal world doesn't "look like" anything. Mostly just pondering on random things... how something is like something else. And that reminds you of yet another thing. And then you wonder, whether you can apply to pattern to still more things.

    IT depends on enneagram. 5s would be the pondering types with their bucket of info, 4s would probably describe a landscape, and 1s will probably have some value that would be the centerpiece, or the defining style, of the Inner-Universe.

    I kind of go by all of them. I would describe my inner universe as a city, probably something taken out of a cyberpunk or steampunk novel/movie, that has everything arrange precisely to balance, but the politics is atrocious; probably something akin to the goings on in the book Kushiel's Dart. Immigrants are well scrutinized before allowed a Visa or civilian license, and even then it's tough going before they're trusted fully.

    This isn't what I see in myself every day, just something I came up with that seems to fit.

    So it is like exploring the realm of memory, imagination and the abstract instead of the external world?

    I agree with Nightning, it's a mode of 'unbound consideration'
    upon general themes which reveal themselves more specifically
    as you 'chase' them. Details from any realm present themselves
    and resonate in accordance with the symbolic value they might
    hold, inviting or begging you to figure out the key relationship.

    Not sure this does Ni any real justice, suffice to say it's
    more mysterious than my intuition can handle

    It's very rare for me that experiences just seem to "disappear." They all stay with me. So the past is not gone and forgotten, it's part of the present. (something like that)

    Ni seems to be the most difficult to describe out of all of my developed functions, but I'll give it a go.

    In my mind, Ni seems to behave in a manner similar to a black hole, in that it sucks everything up and never lets it go. Things in the external world are brought into the mind (probably via Te) where they are malleable, and are manipulated in such a way that possible outcomes and products are made apparent. Predicting multiple time-lines from the same point of origin would be another way of saying it I suppose.

    It's difficult to describe Ni because it seems to almost infuse with other functions at times. Those other functions' traits make it difficult to lock-on to Ni itself.

    Is "Ni" the hunch function?
