    No, never. I would have to get some kind of tangible proof that he would be a good employee.

    The one with the better credentials.

    Eh, not positive, I guess we'll have to wait and see. But for now, I made the best decision I could.
    My Ni (and Ne), according to the CognitiveProcesses.com test is also very low. Yes, I would do the same thing. If it turned out wrong, I'll be able to justify it so I won't feel too bad (and I'll have my backside covered).

    You have a sense about the high-scorer, though, that he's bad news, and that the "so-so" one will work out well.
    You can't point to anything that's led you to this conclusion, you can't justify your belief, but you have this sense just the same."

    1. Do you trust this unjustifiable idea?
    2. Which one would you hire?
    3. How certain are you of your decision?

    1. Yes
    2. The one I sensed would work out.
    3. 100%

    1) yes
    2) the one I had a better "sense" about
    3) about 75% because of my propensity for self-doubt, but I'd still go with the hunch, I just would

    Agreed. And I think VagrantFarce was also aiming for a comparison of how individuals using a specific preferential level of Ni impacts their approach; it's not necessarily how well this method serves their purpose.

    I figured you would say that.
    Now you know why I make comments about people being well-developed in both Ne and Ni.

    If you are interested in the source of my "what-if" scenario,
    it's from here:

    Introverted Intuition

    Proposed definition #4: Just knowing

    Ni is a way of knowing (or at least thinking you know) that bypasses reason,
    facts, evidence, the expected or intended interpretations of signs,
    or anything you can point to, simply giving you an awareness or belief that seems indisputably true to you, period.
    You can't tell by introspection how you got this idea.
    There is no thought process. There is only tuning into this form of awareness and just knowing.

    The type under your name is wrong.

I suppose an unhealthy INJ is very willing to go with whatever Ni tells them, without using their auxillary or inferior to confirm it.
    I think it would be the opposite, an immature or unbalanced INxJ would rely too heavily on their judging function and ignore their Ni. Trusting Ni takes experience and recognizing that you will never have full information to make all your decisions.
    I wonder how dominant Ni compares to auxillary, tertiary and inferior Ni; does that same feeling of "knowing" occur, or is it more easily doubted or dismissed?
    If Ni were inferior it would be more likely to be doubted.


    To answer the question in the OP, sure, I'd trust my instinct and hire the "so so" applicant.

    1. Yes.
    2. The one I sensed would do well.
    3. 90%. I tend to read people very accurately, but I'd always have some doubts.

    I think I just died inside. Intuition comes first, but I do not prefer to have it bypass reason, facts, evidence when they clearly show that my perceptions are false. On the other hand, if those factors do not sufficiently debunk the Ni, then I'll keep hold of it.

    You can't tell by introspection how you got this idea.
    I'd usually get the idea before I have the words to explain it.

    Yes, it's random. There's no other way to describe my Ni.

    Feel free to analyze this yourself, though I will not respond. I have already been through this process (gladly), and I no longer desire to put forth any energy or time to negotiate viewpoints and evidence.

    It would be impractical to assume that one will have complete information before a decision. However, it will be pragmatic to consider the actual evidence while keeping the available time in mind. If the interviewer is short on time or in need of workers, then research is not an option. Their best bet is to handle the problems as they arise.

    I always assumed an unhealthy type is one that relied too much on their dominant and tertiary functions, in which case an INJ would regress from reality and, being a J, make decisions very quickly without any external input. What you described seemed to be more of an unhealthy ENJ trait, one that is unwilling to trust Ni and would rather focus on external judgement only (Se as tertiary and either Te or Fe as a dominant).

    Same.

    Who needs facts, evidence, and "reality" when you have Ni?
