shit is all tangled up, NOT linear, not organized, and nothing is in the right place. nothing is tagged or labeled, you just have to open the box and see what is in there, or provide a jogger for them, or get them to play detective.
both N types are terrible at remembering things that don't have connections between ohter things. we know all the hubs and all their connecting flights, but we don't remember the other airports or the distance to and from,e tc. it's all about movement and connection.
Ni is more detailed and organized and puts away their mental toys and maps and imaginings when they're done. they need like 100 years of sleep every night to do this, too. i find a quick nap in the afternoon helps me reboot sometimes if i get too overloaded with messiness and scatterbrain. you don't have to get it 100% all the time, let's move on.
Ne people would do well to create external tools to help guide and aid their retrieval process. sometimes say no to the rush and flood of new connections. slow down and stay in-context, build something, develop something. just like Ni people would do well to fucking let go, move on, go to a new room, and just get some new stimulation.
mind-mapping rocks my world. i fucking looooove (cognitive) technology + iNtuition!
