    Neither is extraverted intuition.

    In fact, neither are all that much different from their "sensing" counterparts.
    You know, I somewhat agree with this statement.

    I think Si is kinda similar to Ni.

    But the devil is in the details.

    And in the details, there is also plenty of difference.

    There's rules now about calling people retards, I saw. So I won't have too much to say in this post except that one cannot be beautiful without first having a body. And bodies aren't beauty though they may be beautiful.

    There are of course multiple beauties nowadays too. So one actually can be beautiful and disembodied. That's so great, isn't it?

    Some people will just have to move beyond the juvenile language they used in 7th grade.

    It's always been done that way.

    Si is irrevocably different from Ni. They are not similar at all. Si seeks to remember sensory experiences, and adds value to those experiences, whereas Ni takes in information and draws conclusions and courses of action. Ni is about synthesizing information and creating a vision of the future, impelling us to realize goals and keeping us focused; Si is comparative and focuses solely on gauging data and information.

    Ni takes in information and melds it into a shape, while Si only compares and stores data.

    You're right... but it's not because one is better than the other. In fact, I'm beginning to realize it might be the exact opposite.

    There is no meaningful difference between the two.

    Well you could say that data is prepackaged/packed to a degree I guess

    What do you mean by "no meaningful difference"? They are entirely different; I explained why.
