I can't say for sure, but it seems that I'm perceiving connections that exist "out there", rather than creating them.
Of course, the only reason I lean in that direction is because my intuition tells me the connections exist "out there".

I'm an ENFP. It's EXTRAVERTED INTUITION.
I'd love to hear from someone who has a more technical explanation for it, though.
Also, in order to keep this post from being a complete derail, I should add something about Sim's definition of Ni.
Though I think it seriously lacks tact, I don't actually disagree with it at all.
I think it's pretty spot on.
Just my opinion.
