    Or do one where the objective is to understand another person's unusual/surprising behavior, maybe like they have suddenly become really reclusive when they used to be really outgoing or something like that.

    Ni's always more of a weird spider web to me anyways

    It's one of my weaker functions, so it was one of the ones that I was hoping for more input on... it's only "that horrid function that unsettles me" to me

    thanks for the input!

    I'm confused by the percentages of S/N. I tested as 100% N, but there is no way that means I'm 0% S. I still have senses like everyone else.
    So it seems to me that intuitive abilities are just an additional way of using sensory input.

    I just don't trust self reporting tests

    have you taken a cognitive processes test?

    Also, if there are eight S/N questions and you answered them all in the N direction, then you would test 100% N, regardless of your actual "percentage," no?

    very true... and considering that there's no clear S or N, just Se or Ne, that muddies things up even further

    It shouldn't be possible for a person to have NO S whatsoever or NO N whatsoever, because even in the basic order of processes in the personality we have both S and N represented in every type

    since you're a Ne person nebby, you should also have Si in there as your tertiary

    Good job explaining this. I'm most strongly aware of using Ne and Si, though I'm sure I also use some Se, then Ni the least probably.

    I get very annoyed with people who lump all S and all N together, because then it becomes some kind of lame prejudice of N vs. S without recognition of the different functions.

    I also hate when people think that being F is about using more "instinct" or that T automatically makes one more intelligent, but that's another thread.

    Definitley, oversimplifying any of the functions leads to people being stereotyped rediculously I know that there's a definite difference between Se and Si for instance... I don't have the greatest Si, but my Se is fabulous!

    I'm definitley aware that the S/N dichotomy isn't the only one mistreated this way (and funny enough S/N and F/T are the only ones that can really be described in this format when you think about it!)

    I don't understand. The test generated those percentages. they don't exist without that framwork.
