    Default Which function more likely to land you in the Psych Ward: Ne or Ni?

    So,

    I had this random thought pop into my head that folks with Ni as their dominant or secondary function go crazy before anyone else. This random thought was quickly challenged by another thought saying its the Ne, stuck on infinite possibility, that causes the screws to loosen.

    Which one wins this showdown?

    I've actually landed myself in a Psych ward for 8 days. It was definitely my Ne going haywire, some I'm going with Ne.

    Ne is a powerful beast. However Ni can be just as strong. I think Ni-er's tend to be more delusional. Ne's maybe more schizophrenic. All those ideas have a chance to trick you into believing you never thought them. Perhaps I am exaggerating though?

    Actually I think INxJs are very paranoid, have weird ideas about things, can be cautious to the point of avoidant, and buy into conspiracy theories.

    On the other hand, ENxPs are probably most likely to be pegged as stark raving lunatics and get sent to the psych ward more quickly because they're more open about their crazy.

    But just so you know, there are even bipolar ISTJs who talk to themselves and scare their families, so insanity is not the sole domain of Ns.

    Istj demensia would look weird. Perhaps they start envisioning the past and believe it's true because of the vividness of the feelings/memories.

    Of course it's not just add a little bit of lead, mercury and fluoride and walla recipe for insanity!

    I don't know many INTJs, but I did know this one guy, who was kind of peculiar so I made him take the MBTI test to be sure he is INTJ. He was paranoid as fuck. But not in the delusional way. He was paranoid about the little things. The social things.
    If some guy would laugh he would automatically think he was laughing of him. If I would also laugh with that other guy he would ask me insistently why are we laughing of him...when we weren't.
    He would not trust me even though he knew me a while.

    It's weird because I am the opposite, I can be quite naive, not second guessing other people's intentions, as I don't really care about their intentions.


    I think both Ne and Ni will land you in psych ward. You don't have to be an I to be a loooooooonatic, although I'm sure there are more Ne's in the psych ward, because they are way more common.

    I never thought of myself as paranoid, but then I read this thread and thought about how I always worry that people are looking at the groceries in my cart and judging how healthy they are. I guess that's paranoia!

    I think Ni makes you more actually crazy, but Ne is more likely to make other people think you are crazy.

    i've known eccentric people of both types... Ni and Ne.

    i'd say they are different realms of crazy.

    one's more paranoid--Ni.

    the other more like the movie Pi--Ne.
