    That is the N-similarity: that of connection-making.

    The difference between the two, after recognizing that significant similarity, is the attitudinal direction.

    Ne doms would certainly be able to do that N-styled connection-making of figuring out that the men are all touching an elephant as well.

    I'm not so sure, however, that they'd do the same when that analogy is pressed more fully into reality -- like when various people are arguing about their takes on a political or philosophical issue.

    That's the realm where Ni meta-perspectivizing really seems to thrive, imo.

    But about an elephant: yes, Ne could do that.

    I somewhat disagree with Mr U, even though I adore him with great delight. We can mutually perhaps peek into our opp attitude....but very often we deviate widely...then interestingly end up back at the same place at the end of the story.

    Perhaps this is why I find the Ni processes more intriguing than the Ni end point of a predictive pattern/archetype. The Ni processes can be very complementary and serve as a good check against Ne processes. I often find the Ni endpoint to be incomplete...but the Ni questions raised to be exemplary and they spark my Ne to look in very new places...which can form the basis of new input to the Ni processes.

    Yeah, I was getting cavalier with the terminology, but that's because it was the best way to describe what I was thinking.

    Archetypes lie in the collective unconscious. When we have personal experiences that fit them, they then enter the personal unconscious and become complexes. This is one of the first things that Lenore taught me in response to questions about Beebe's theory.
    So when I have experiences that make me react in a grumpy way, it falls into an archetype called the "Senex". This then for me takes on a perspective of Ni, and the Senex becomes a complex through a negative Ni perspective for me.
    I agree, when the archetypes in question are the roles humans play. However, I also think we have archetypal understandings of things in nature, though we would likely call that "instinctual". A lot of our thought is pre-programmed, so to speak, or is at least learned early enough to be indistinguishable from genetically universal. This also correlates with the tendency of humans to anthropomorphize nature, which would then start to draw on human archetypes.

    In my mind, the personal unconscious are those bits and pieces of actual sensory information that affected us, but we don't consciously experience them. They stick around, and that's why it's the province of Si. Meanwhile, the collective unconscious are those bits of behavioral patterns (thought being a behavior here) that became encoded within our genes as vital to human survival. They pop up "seemingly from the blue", and are of a very deep, ethereal and quasi-mystical nature. That's why it's Ni's area.

    Now, Ni is often linked to the "unconscious", and inasmuch as it is said to deal with "the archetypal" (one of the cognitive process test questions even asks this) there might be some truth to that.
    But I don't think the extraverted functions then deal with "the conscious", while Sensation necessarily deals with "the personal".
    Sensation deals with the things that actually happen or have happened to a person, which is why I characterize it as "personal." Intuition deals with things that are universal to all humans in some way, which is why I characterize it as "collective." The extraverted functions deal with "the conscious" because they require stimulation in a conscious state to function. The introverted functions do not require consciousness in the same way: the impact of your repressed or forgotten memories are going to still affect you because of Si, and you will still have those archetypal structures floating throughout your brain even if not actively recalling them.

    An Si perspective is in the "unconscious" for NJ's, SP, and perhaps young NP's, but not for an SJ or mature INP. Some memories might fall into the personal unconscious (and that's what that is; memories, images, etc. that you have experienced, but forgotten, yet it is still "in there" somewhere). But the functional perspective itself is not unconscious, simply because it's internal. And external perspectives are not necessarily conscious.
    Ah, I see where the misunderstanding is. It's not the engagement of the perceiving function that is conscious or unconscious, as much as it is the source of information that it is drawing from. Extraverted perceiving functions require conscious stimuli to utilize information, while introverted perceiving functions rely on stimuli from the unconscious mind. Does that make sense?

    Yup. Describe the software all you like, it means nothing unless you can apply it.

    I was poking fun earlier and accusing the Ni dom users of having a god complex for believing they have a meta-perspective on things, and in that context, I was translating meta to mean above, but...

    (God, I love Wikipedia )

    Meta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It seems that meta-processing, and meta-analyzing, and meta-everything has a strong correlation to N-ness.

    Meta can mean in the middle, or in between, but often it's used as a prefix to various Higher Order of Thinking, or HOT topics.

    Ne draws and sees connections between and patterns within seemingly disparate ideas/concepts/constructs/things too.

    But you are right, we do make networks, multidimensional frameworks from the information we assimilate.

    But, It's kinda like a fractal, Ne, so there is a cohesion and a global-ness to our synthesizing data.

    I've been obsessed with fractals since I was a little girl.

    "Everything in every thing"

    Is that Ni or Ne?

    Or is it just me, I read it from a human geography textbook introduction, the introduction was so moving, (I was somehow forced to take the class which ended up being awesome, my prof was a total genius ), that I actually copied it and have it archived in my room. True story.

    And I agree with you on this point.

    They're similar in their Nness, but they are different in their attitude.

    Agreed.

    That's the attitudinal difference.

    Does the desire for connection-making ever stop for the Ne-user? The answer is: nope.

    You guys are always looking to make new connections to better fill out the sphere's surface area.

    We are always focusing in on the center.

    Therein lies the difference.

    Very true.

    Silly...

    check this out...just in case you ever want to be an Fe user...

    NLP Meta Programs, by John David Hoag


    Also do you have any suggested reading in abstract math? I am considering a new topic outside of jungian psychology to become my new time sink. I have determined I am morally offended by 4/0=undefined, so I would like to dig a bit deeper into math.

    Practically the Ne search never ends...but the ultimate beauty would be at the end of the search when everything is connected...and thus is unity.

    infinity=unity

    But this may be NeFi, as i suspect NeTi has very different objectives, thus I shall refrain from speaking for them.
