    Default Ne/Ni Conflicts

    I just realized recently the potential for conflict between Ne and Ni. To be honest, it's not something that I've thought much about as I've always believed I get along rather well with people that have a strong preference for Ne (INTP, ENFPs for example).

    Oro is seeing it as short-sighted, because Ne sees this huge landscape that Ni very often misses. Similarly, Ni sees possibilities and options that Ne often misses, because Ne is thinking "space-like" while Ni is thinking "time-like".
    So, I'm a bit disappointed to be thought of as myopic but nonetheless intrigued by all of this.

    What do you think about it? What kinds of conflicts do you see that you would attribute to a difference in a preference for Ne vs Ni? Why are they important to understand?

    hmmm... i could see this... and though i'm not an Ni-dom, i think i've had this run in with an Ne-dom.

    where the Ne-dom was piecing together meanings of what they could gather from mundane details in the everyday...

    i was a bit more cynical, but looking towards the future and how one could truly make an impact.

    this particular Ne-dom kept seeing impending doom, an apocalypse... i saw a world in possible peril due to it's wasteful lifestyle. he reached for religion and meditation--cleansing the spirit, i reached more for becoming more aware of my carbon footprint.

    i'm still trying to understand the differences of Ni and Ne, so please explain if i have made a misunderstanding here.

    yes, I see that as a much bigger of a problem than Fe-Fi for me. I have noticed this initial clash between me and ENFPs. If I don't explain myself to the last detail, the Ne user thinks that I am completely dense w/o any sense of humor. I will expand upon it later.

    The only problem I could see is that INxJs might see ENxPs as crazy, and ENxPs might see INxJs as overly cautious, paranoid, or uptight.

    But overall I get along with other Ns, not matter if they have Ne or Ni...I don't see this as a conflict. I tend to have more little stupid conflicts with NTPs than NTJs, even though I'm probably an ENFP.

    Ne and Ni don't make much of a difference to me, and that might be because I usually score both in my top three functions.

    I find they complement each other, as a Ne-dom with a Ni-dom sister I feel we can add different perspectives in terms of "possibilities" and neither is short-sighted.

    Get into a relationship with an INTP and have a fight or two. It's like nothing you've ever experienced before. Imagine Godzilla arguing in Japanese about how best to roast coffee while you're talking about feelings!

    I am greatly entertained by Ne. I score high in both, but it might be difficult to have a Ne-dom employer. I might feel a bit out of focus and like things were too unpredictable.

    I doubt that's about Ne and Ni...

    It has to do with Ne/Ni AND Fe/Fi.

    Hm. I have no experience with this that I know of, I can't think of any. I usually end up getting along with Ni because I like taking all the ideas and connections that Ne finds and Ti-ing the hell out of them to get to a logical conclusion of how something would end.
