Well the thread title actually says everything.
Basically I am asking how do you present the work of your Ni to other people.
As for others: What would make you trust some other persons Ni in making a right choices in a "be or not to be situation" ? (or something like it)
Unfortunately, I am hardly ever able to get people to trust my Ni, so when it's really important, I make sure I have all the facts written down somewhere or memorized because most people want me to back up what I am saying with facts.
I can answer honestly, that I have a bit of trouble sometimes trusting someones Ni when it concerns me
I am a bit guarded, and I don't always like someone telling me to face myself before I am ready too. I have to be able to figure it out myself. Or, for me to listen, it can't be presented in the abstract..It's not that I can't deal with abstract thought.. quite the contrary.. It's just that when it comes to me about me, I need facts and consequences, nothing else.. or it starts to sound fishy or manipulative..
As I get older, I get choosier about who I hang around with and I tend to hang around more with people who respond well to Ni. I'm getting so loud alarm bells go off in my head when I see that patronizing smile on peoples' faces and I'm not interested in continuing the acquaintance. Fortunately or unfortunately, I'm married to an ENTP, so I have lots and lots and lots of experience arguing my Ni-based position against his Ti position (and if you don't think that's a tough combination -- think again!) Since we've been "discussing" things for years, I've learned to "discuss" very logically, but I'm getting so it's more fun to use NiFe to win "discussions." Although he's using his third function, feeling, more and more now, which throws me for a loop and takes some of the fun out of it!
I prefer to be proven right, too. People close to me will learn to trust my judgement.
It's one of the most frustrating situations when I'm absolutely certain of something (the Ni way) and then someone asks me to explain it, usually in a Te way (facts, lists, sources, etc.). I can't provide that.
It's very temptating to say "I told you!" afterwards, but it's only because I want them to realize that I can be trusted.
This. As many other INTJs have said, I don't seek to persuade people, I just put my view out there. It's when I'm proven right time and time again that people start to listen.
Exactly. I just make sure my words get heard by the right person at key times, and, eventually, they'll notice a pattern of success/wisdom. I think the trick is to find a person who is smart enough to care.
