    What? Ni symbolism doesn't tell you? For shame!
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

All of these are subjective opinions, not genuine truth, but for the introverted function user, it's ingrained and difficult not to trust the assumptions being made.
    I'd say that the introverted functions manifest more like this:

    Fi: knows when something isn't morally sound
    Ti: knows when something isn't internally consistent
    Si: knows when something doesn't feel right (or familiar)
    Ni: knows when you're looking at something the wrong way

    I like these.

    And I stand by my comments. I don't think someone who prefers Ni is going to say this:
    Actually the reason he decided to recognize my post as Ni was because it was simply a reiteration of his previous post regarding Ni. Notice the question mark at the end of the second paragraph. I was trying to make sure I understood correctly.

    The Ni he was recognizing there was his own idea.

    That is why I started writing in terms of my own personal experiences.

    And I agree I don't have a particular preference toward N anything, doesn't mean it isn't still my dominant function.

    You have no idea what a dominant function is.
    And I agree with Z:

    What you're missing is what it means to have a function be dominant. It's not whether you have a particular preference. It's that the function's influence on your perception is so strong, and its approach to problems so familiar to you, that it affects your life experience in two preeminent ways.

    First, you have no clue whatsoever that you prefer this function. I still have no freakin' clue what Ne is, how it shades my perception of the world, how it feels, etc. That's because there is nothing in my experience to compare it to. Nothing is as pervasive in my life.

    Second, until you mature quite a bit, you have no idea that the way others experience things can be radically different from your own. Your dominant function, as far as you understand, defines what it means to be human, or to be more precise, what makes humans what they are. As far as I understand it, the different perspective are as follows:

    Ne: to be human is to understand what is wonderful about everything in the world
    Ni: to be human is to know that what is and what seems to be are usually two very different things
    Se: to be human is to appreciate everything that is beautiful about this world
    Si: to be human is to know the difference between right and wrong

    Fe: to be human is to take joy in everyone around you, and to share that joy with others
    Fi: to be human is to constantly seek the meaning of things
    Te: to be human is to remake the world for the better
    Ti: to be human is to understand how everything fits together

    As well you should.
    I will say this - using his criteria, all 8 are my "dominant functions."

    Of course they are. You grew up and are an adult now, after all.
