    I have trouble with Ni so I can sort of understand the difficulty of maintaining a function that's not natural to you. What you have to do is really be aware and conscious of your thinking. Then all there is to do is to keep looking for things that are abstractedly(not physically) related to each other. don't look for connections in terms of perspectives(like symbols, hidden meanings, etc.) but look for them independent of perspective(like a soccer ball and a football are related becaus their both balls.)

    But a soccer ball and foot ball are related because they're both balls. They end in "ball," they are physically balls, and you see them together a lot in gyms.

    That's not Ne.

Wouldn't this be common for anyone wanting to intuit external? Linking it back to the external environment would seem to place greater weight on how it can practically fit into the material world, instead of residing in some internal construct.
    This might be my introverted take on it (JiNe). But what you're talking about is following through on an idea to creation, not necessarily linking it to something currently practical, right? I don't know if I am making that distinction clear, but I see one between practicality of an idea versus making it real to prove it has use to begin with.

    i like creating just for the sake of it...or theory for the sake of it...the fun part is solving the problem or creating something from nothing or altering something to be so much more. i would get as much satisfaction from just coming up with the ideas and giving them to someone else..i don't only find it useful if it's something i personally want or after i see it completed.

    is that what you're talking about?

    I happen to like internal constructs.. I don't prioritize linking things back externally.

    Err.. It's hard to elaborate actually. Lets just say that my sense of possibilities don't really think practically. I'd rather that things come to my way of seeing rather than having it appeal the other way around.

    Maybe this is more Ni. Whatever.

    The idea of the "ball" is simply a spherical, round object, perhaps bouncy. You can't physically see that concept. (Granted, a football isn't that round but it can still fall under the idea. A golfball and basketball would work better.)

    But I think this is being an introvert.....I'm like this as well. Our reality is Fi, and Ne serves its purposes (so to speak).

    I think this is a terrible analogy.

    I'm pretty sure that Ne sees things that are related that aren't physically similar or categorically utilized for simillar activities in the physical realm.

    Sorry. Think of something more abstract, or more "different."

    Forget Ne and go Ni! It'll be easier on you mentally, and you get that nice tunnel vision/epiphany stuff.

    This is just a disgusting comment. Get over yourself.
