    Default Which mbti-function is this?

    You have a problem to solve or you want to reach a goal.
    So, you start research with no attention to understand the process, but a random method and you immediately locate clues and connections with multiple informations, from particular to general you create a big picture and the combination drive you to the final point.

    A stupid generic example: you use a linux OS and you don't know it very well.
    you have a problem with drivers... You start searching in google with key phrase, and intuitively spot something you don't know well but you "think" it could drive you to another research and so on when finally you see the point for solve the problem.

    S'ok Thursday, most of us Ni users are skilled at using Ne as well.

    There is some overlap, but actively looking for patterns or connections is more of an external function, so Ne. Ni is more passive, and it skips steps so the answer comes as a flash of inspiration. In the example that the OP gave all the steps are visible, even if they aren't linear, they are still easy to trace. With Ni when you find a solution, you have no idea how you got there.

    OK, thank you!

    But how is Ne different if I use it as first function or second?
    Do you think my description is more Ne-Ti (ENTP) or Ti-Ne (INTP)? Which the differences in the process?

    You can't easily tell which is dominant or pinpoint whether you are extroverted or introverted the way you are trying to. You will have to read up on extroversion and introversion to figure out which you are.

    But I don't like it very much. It says "Donít confuse Introversion with shyness or reclusiveness. They are not related", but all statements seems to be the distinction between a solitary person and a people person.
    the "mad scientist" emmett brown in "back to the future" probably results introvert if he does this test, but he is typed as entp.

    it's Ne/Ti. Ne itself can not cover the description because there is no judgement.
