    Well, I know that industry marketing and advertisement is an example. Consumer psychologists basically raid people's psyche's, pull out their emotional attachments, dive into their unconscious, identify relationships, and re-present it to them in beer and make-up commercials.

    Casca, I think Gun, Germs, and Steel is a great example actually. The 48 Laws of Power seemed like it had a healthy dose of Ni as well.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Title: How Your Body Works
    From: Monty Python's Brand New Papperbok
    Transcribed By: Jonathan Partington (JRP1@PHOENIX.CAMBRIDGE.AC.UK)


    The human body is indeed a wonderful thing. Its infinitely complex way of
    functioning would take a computer, working flat out, day and night, excluding
    Bank Holidays and Christmas, 3,971 years to work out. The slightest flicker of
    the eyelid, the smallest movement of the big toe, involves such extraordinarily
    complex processes that the average man, working flat out, excluding Bank
    Holidays and Christmas, but *including* weekends, would take 84,643 light years
    to work it out. If you can imagine an Airedale terrier jumping in and out of a
    watering can once every 7 minutes for 12 years you have some idea how long that
    would take. And that's only one light year.

    Even the most simple process that the body can perform -- like paying the
    doctor -- would take a piece of asbestos over 9 billion years to work out. If
    you can imagine a man at a cocktail party congratulating the hostess on the
    avocado dip 40,000 times every second for 2 1/2 hours twice a week for 28,000
    years you can begin to realise what an extraordinarily wonderful thing the
    human body is.

    To put it even more simply, if you can imagine a doctor leaving his lucrative
    Harley St. practice to a younger partner, and cruising round the world 4 times
    a year, drinking 3 bottles of champagne with a friend's wife every afternoon,
    and writing an article on How Your Body Works once every 96 days, you'll get
    some idea of why I was struck off the register. Good evening.

    More Ni...

    He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me. That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density at any point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation. Inventions then cannot, in nature, be a subject of property.
    - Thomas Jefferson

    Great example, Nightning. I was hoping for some NTJ-fueled Ni examples (like CS Lewis - thanks, Cascade).

    "Our language can be seen as an ancient city: a maze of little streets and squares, of old and new houses, and of houses with additions from various periods; and this surrounded by a multitude of new boroughs with straight regular streets and uniform houses."
