    Si also uses a LOT of simple, rigid cause and effect terms while Ni uses blanket ones:

    NTJ vs STJ example
    Si: Shooting a gun at someone in the head will kill them. Shooting them in the stomach will cause a slow, painful death if not treated. Shooting them in the foot will not kill them, but it will give them a limp.
    Ni: Shooting a gun at someone will hit them with a lot of force in a small area, if the force hits them in the right spot, they will die. If I do it right, they wont die instantly, but slowly.

    NFJ vs SFJ example
    Si: Doing things for people makes them happy, which is good. It makes me feel good for others to feel good. I like when people rely on me, then I can do more good things for them.
    Ni: Doing things for other people can make them happy, but doing it too much may make them rely on me. I'll be nice to a person if I think it will do them good, but who knows? If I'm not quite sure I probably won't bother.

    Hmm. I must be an ISJ, then because I'm the only one in my family who can ever remember where we parked. However, why I store things where I store them usually turns out to be "because it was convenient at the time," but I can still always find them...
    Everyone has a balance between S and N and introversion and extroversion. Simple as that

    And I do the same with storage: It may LOOK disorganize, but in my mind its all perfectly where I left them so it IS organized.

    The way I explained it once was it was a bit like quick digestion before, or slow digestion after... like Si is the snake and Ni the spider.

    Does anyone else agree with this? I'm definitely the latter.

    Uberfuhrer refers to Si dominant or auxiliary types, and Ni dominant or auxiliary types, and not just all types that either have Ni or Si as their four functions.

    The longing that he speaks of is to be attributed to the intellectual intensity of the Ni type. It is not specific to the Ni type, it could be found in all N types, especially the INs. If you are an Intuitive, you certainly are more likely to identify with uberfuhrer'r description of the Ni type rather than the Si type.

    Si is memories, Ni is imagination.
    Si is rules you live by, Ni is the voices in your head telling you what to do.

    P.S. I caught a typo in your post. I feel so accomplished now.

    Si:compares past experiences to present objectively
    Ni:constency in ideas and thoughts...thru internal framework...personal 'aha' moments.



    I didn't read the whole thread so I don't know if someone already posted this...

    Why melancholy? Why longing?
