    I think this is a good example of Ni. I would simply describe it as insight.

    I think the video maker is an INTJ.

    Introverted iNtuition (Ni)


    * Foreseeing
    * Conceptualizing
    * Understanding complex patterns
    * Synthesizing and symbolizing
    * Future

    "This is how it will be."
    "Aha, that's it!"

    When Ni is a preferred process:

    * You usually feel a certainty about what is going to happen, often without much detail and without being able to trace the actual data that would support the prediction.
    * You focus on "what will be."
    * You are energized by transformational visions of how someone can grow or of a completely original approach to get there.
    * You are drawn to make those visions manifest.
    * Frequently you experience flashes of insight that present themselves as very broad themes and complex whole patterns or systems of thought without being triggered by external events.
    * Inner images come as a knowing that taps into universal symbols and with a certainty that they are true.

    Introverted Intuiting is about Seeking Insights and Meanings

    It focuses on:

    * Identifying underlying meaning
    * Identifying the inter-relatedness of data
    * Synthesizing the information to reveal the "golden nuggets"

    Its approach is to:

    * Just state how or what action to take
    * Rely on insight to develop vision for the future
    * Envision without the need for tangible support

    Introverted Intuiting's verbal communications are delivered in absolutes with a quest for meaning, i.e.:

    * "Why?"
    * Identifying the hidden meaning
    * States what is going on behind the scenes

    Introverted Intuiting's nonverbal cues are: reflective, serious, and confident; may appear complex, disengaged; could appear hesitant to respond.

    To build rapport with introverted Intuiting, we can try:

    * Providing a theoretical framework
    * Using symbolic, conceptual language
    * Relating concrete experience to theories
    * Asking them to show you how they made their connections
    * Asking for the long-term vision

    Here are the sorts of complaints we make about introverted Intuiting when we feel uncomfortable. We say the person is:

    * Serious and arrogant
    * Complex and vague
    * Theoretical or lacking specifics
    * Inflexible and adversarial
    * Out of touch with reality



    Extraverted iNtuiting (Ne)


    * Inferring
    * Hypothesizing
    * Seeing possibilities
    * Wondering and brainstorming
    * Emergent

    "This is what might be."
    "It could be this or this or this or . . ."

    When Ne is a preferred process:

    * Much reading "between the lines" occurs.
    * Potential possibilities and meanings are "revealed" and must be explored.
    * You feel fully engaged in emerging new approaches to doing things and are energized by discovering other perspectives,
    in an ever-shifting succession of ideas or insights triggered by the particular situation, much like brainstorming.
    * You frequently experience a flight of ideas that brings relevant pieces of information from one context into another.
    * "What is" is not seen for what it is but for its relationship to other things.
    * Everything is perceived in a context of a web of relationships. Nothing stands alone or is disconnected.

    Extraverted Intuiting is about Seeking Patterns and Possibilities

    It focuses on:

    * Possibilities for the future
    * Identifying connections and patterns within the data
    * Connecting the current situation with other possible situations -- what could be

    Its approach is to:

    * Propose options
    * Respond enthusiastically to the ideas of others
    * Get excited about doing something differently

    Extraverted Intuiting's verbal communications are delivered through possibilities, i.e.:

    * "We could do this, or maybe that"
    * Connects the dots without drawing the lines
    * Rapid delivery following stream-of-consciousness thought

    Extraverted Intuiting's nonverbal cues are: energetic, excited, enthusiastic; bounces easily from one topic to another; enjoys the rush of something new.

    To build rapport with extraverted Intuiting, we can try:

    * Presenting the big picture first
    * Remaining open to new ideas
    * Providing opportunities to brainstorm alternatives
    * Allowing room to explore options without judgment
    * Avoiding the need for accurate details

    Here are the sorts of complaints we make about extraverted Intuiting when we feel uncomfortable. We say it's:

    * Lacking in follow-through
    * Random, flighty, and chaotic
    * Too comfortable with inaccurate specifics and detail
    * Disrespectful of traditional approaches
    * Overly optimistic and enthusiastic

    I think the video maker is an INTP. (All types can experience Ni).

    EDIT: I change my mind, he could easily be INTJ.

    1. This video is awesome.

    2. I agree that it's a good example of Ni.

    3. Yeah, I'm thinking he's INTJ.


    I have a lot of questions about this, too, but I'm having trouble formulating them.

    This thread is turning out real good. Iv'e been thinking about several face to face conversations about politics and past events, and my observations are not theoretical, but experiential. During talking I noticed certain " gut feelings I got from the speakers presentation. That this was an evasion, or something they were sensitive about. I thought this was a form of N, because it came from nowhere. Also, much of the talk evoked imagery, which was taken to absurd funny levels in conversation. I thought one type of N, was sort of in stinctual, more of a feeling, but another was to take reality, and just overlay lots of imagery(like science fiction).I wonder if someone could clarify this.

    It seems that Ni describes me much more than Ne does. Could this possibly mean that I am an INTJ instead of an INTP?

    I think you're an INTP simply because you're questioning it.

    What led you to believe that you were an INTP in the first place?

    No, considering an INTP's dominant function is Ti not Ne. Have you considered being ISTP? Ti > Te, Se > Si, Ni > Ne, Fe > Fi.

    I'm definately N, nothing in the S category describes me. I'm very big-picture oriented.
