Argh! :steam:
Whenever I try to describe Ni, I get the reaction that I got either Si or Ne. I'm used to missing Ni, so I'm quite okay with that.
But this is the first time I've missed a Ne!
Well, I assumed something about what was going on at the moment led Ne to associate the current context with a different one (like "what metaphor should we use?")

You're right that Ne needs input.

2. I have mulled this around in my head for quite some time now... I was fairly sure (before your comment) that the reference frame thing was Ne. I'm doing that all the time on rollercoasters... or yelling things like "long live gravity, and the normal force, and acceleration!"

I think I know what happened.

The reference frame was meant as a physics joke. Not as a psychological metaphor.
I can see Ne cracking physics jokes, stimulated by the rollercoaster input.
I can also see Ni shifting the point of view - and saying the same words.

I didn't think of "reference frame" as anything else than a physics joke. Well, in my defense, I'm a physicist... I just wanted Ne to say something that had a link with the outside situation, to make it clear Ne is using the input. In the same vein, I wanted Ni to say something that hadn't anything to do with the rollercoaster or anything else in the outside world.

3. This thread gave me an idea.

4. ## Tertiary Si *the story the actual video tells*

I think the actual video itself represents what Si in the Tertiary role plays *for me at least and my idea of the theory*.

Especially at the end with the old man and the box. But the whole video sets the backdrop for that part.

5. More function images... Here are some graphs representing my use of the functions in different circumstances.

hehe, i'm curious... when people say they're scarred for life after seeing some things, do they really mean it? I only occassionally say it in a humorous way.

You can take that as an example of Te, if you like.
lol, I was thinking the same thing
