    Default Type the function

    When I present the next situation. I'm waiting for someone to pick me up, who I think is coming by car. She isn't arriving... Then I see someone at a bike a little away. I start imagining it would be her, complete up to how she would near me and what we might say. Then it turns out it's actually her and she says something that makes clear it's a surprise.

    I was wondering if I was imagining with Ne (as opposed to just looking straight away) and when she turned up was again in 'normal perception'. Or was I back in Ti? Or was it that I was imagining with Ti and registrating reality again with Ne (so the other way around)? Do you have an idea?

    I understand (came to understand actually by this thought) that N, S are not perceiving, but are effects (indeed: functions) on perceiving, or ways of perceiving.

    A perceiving function, but definitely not Se.

    It could be Ne (wondering if this could be them) with just a touch of Si (expecting them to arrive by car). I'd say Ne.

    Imagining is by definition Intuition. Organizing perception (throwing out ideas that make no sense, highlighting ideas that make sense) is Thinking.

    "Registering reality" is Sensation. Realizing that it IS reality is Thinking.

    I understand (came to understand actually by this thought) that N, S are not perceiving, but are effects (indeed: functions) on perceiving, or ways of perceiving.
    True true.
