    Default Se wants to develop Ne

    Is it possible? How can I do it?

    I'm quite fond of Ne in the use of creative art and would very much like to develop that side. But I need that Si anchor, too. I'm so used to Se/Ni.

    Next time you find yourself using heavy Se, imagine what it would be like to have ADD too. Then act it out. Bam! Ne.

    Um, actually no. ADHD is very common in Se types because of the hyperactivity aspect.

    Just throwing this out there.. but whenever you experience something, try to ask yourself what else it can mean, what could it symbolize, what is connected to it, what is it's relation in space and time. Try to see it as a mystery, then consider all the ideas of the mystery.

    She could do that using her Ni.

    According to Jungian cognitive theory Ne and Se cannot even co-exist. Because they're attitudes, not shirts you change into.

    I actually do tend to do this, and related it to Ni. Though I used to think it was Ne.

    I realize this, yes I do. But if she wants to entertain these ideas who am I to discourage. It is a theory right? It's what Jung thought to be correct and couldn't prove.

    You won't change your mindset, but you can adopt traits of Ne by sort of mimicking Ne style of thinking. It's not going to turn you into an NP of course.

    Some other thinking activities (in addition to what's been suggested already) for building Ne-like skills:
    - Imagine currently reality as a cage, and brainstorm on how you can escape that cage, but not in a physical sense.
    - Try to broaden your external context, assuming the apparent facts & sensations/experiences have left out some aspect of reality, an important part that will key you into a "solution".
    - Don't view anything as impossible, even if its only possibility is remote, unlikely or completely fantastical.
    - Don't dismiss contemplating & mentally exploring these remote possibilities even if you have no intention of doing it and/or it has no practical value.
    - Trust hypothesis over experience.

    These make me feel as though I definitely do not have Ne. Especially the bolded, that just seems crazy to me.

    However, I erased the second one because I do that. I do look for things that are between the lines. I must have some serious Ni development, then, to even think I was Ne.

    I could use many beautiful metaphors about Se and Ne. Even write poetry about them. But it all comes down to this. Se is tangible, whereas Ne is not.
