    If you meet an Ni dominant, throw a bucket of cold water over the poor dears as soon as they start talking nonsense. It means their brains are overheating from too much thinking, you can do them a real service by stopping the process before they become softboiled in their own heads.

    If you meet an Ne dominant, beware - they have pyrokinetic powers which they may not be able to control. Be very afraid! And make sure you keep that bucket of water handy in case they get over-excited and start up little blazes all around. DO NOT throw the water on them personally; it's needed to stop a conflagration building up around from all the small fires if they're left uncontrolled, and besides, they probably won't even notice.

    IMO Introverted intuition is the idea that you know things internally, and it manifests itself as confidence. A lot of introverted intuitives are know-it-alls.

    That's a pretty self-righteous statement isn't it?

    Any introverted function involves an internal knowing (based on a sort of "framework"). With Ni, the framework is abstract (such as the significance of threeness). With Si; it's concrete (something solid you actually remember). With Ti it's logical (such as the article's explanation of what causes things to look like celebrities actually die in threes), and with Fi, it's ethical.

    somehow the comparing and contrasting makes things make more sense to me in a way... I get Ti and how it works... and I understand Fi as being similar to Ti in role, but different in substance... it makes it easier to understand what Ni is by a comparison like you did above there!

    I like the fact that you're talking about symbols and mystic conclusions next to an avatar of lost.

    I have often thought that his description is very much like the difference between abstraction, with its leaps of association, and linear thought, and similar to the P/J and the N/S dichotomies.
    That's correct if your line of discernment is Instinctual/Act now vs Look before you leap/Maybe there's something more to this.

    SP's = Hunters
    SJ's = Farmers

    I suppose you could find a way to extend that to NP's vs. NJ's. How do NP's instinctively navigate underlying meanings? How do NJ's "predict" the future based on previously established systems of meaning? Is Ni a single ubersystem of meaning, like a sphere-grid in FFX, with the new abilities and stat-ups representing ideas?

    "... you think deeply about stuff [that] nobody cares about and hardly anybody can understand you." ~ Peguy talking about Ni users. So true.
