    Are you talking about Ni usage as in 'shadow function'? If not, then I'm confused. Doesn't Si anchor Ne?

    I echo those sentiments.

    My leading one, in conjunction with my aux one, I find it odd that others would feel differently and say something other than their primary function.

    Ne of course is heaps of fun. Se must be the 2nd. When you're really really tired, you just want to listen to some music and live in the moment.

    Any function can make me happy or not depending on how its used. I guess I'd rank them as follows, with happiest first.

    Ne: If I had to pick one function that makes me the most happy overall, this would be it. Ne allows me to make interesting connections between things and thinks of new possibilities. Much of my sense of humor and childlike enthusiasm stems from this function.

    Se: I don't really use it that much and its one of my weakest functions but when I allow myself to fully live in the moment and completely immerse myself in my senses, I think to myself, "why don't I do this more often?" I think I feel kind of guilty about just indulging in Se. I usually let other functions override it. I should think more logically. I should think more about the future, etc.

    Ti: I really enjoy playing with logical systems in my head and analyzing how it all fits into a whole. I love finding out the why behind things. I guess I rank Ne as making me happier because I think as a Ti dominant, I tend to just take it for granted.

    Si: I enjoy this function for the nostalgic effect and reminscing about the past. I enjoy the sensory impressions it sometimes creates. On the downside, my Si can recapture unpleasant past memories and sensations I'd rather just forget.

    Te: On the plus side, I feel really good when I've effectively utilized Te to accomplish tasks efficiently and effectively. On the downside, Te seems awfully dry to me at times. It's too mechanical, too procedural.

    Ni: I enjoy Ni for the insights it creates and the ability to see multiple perspectives on the same thing. On the other hand, my Ni has a dark side to it, imagining worst case scenarios and I think the source of some of my existential angst comes from here.

    Fe: This is a troublesome function for me that causes me undue anxiety at times, especially in the social arena. When in the grip of Fe, I get powerful emotions that are hard to control and hypersensitive about others' feelings towards me. I guess it makes me happy in the sense of having good harmonious relations with others.

    Fi: This is probably my most troublesome function aside from Fe and I wouldn't exactly consider it my happy place (is this a common attitude to have towards one's demonic function? For INTPs that is Fi) When I'm really down and depressed about something, that's when my Fi goes into overdrive. On the other hand Fi is good for realizing the times when I should have listened to my heart and to not ignore what I feel deep down. Sometimes Fi is confusing, when values conflict with each other or when doing the 'right thing' seems to conflict with what you personally value.

    Someone made a thread once about S's turning N when they are tired, and N's turning S when they're tired. I always thought it was an interesting concept. For me when I'm tired I get rather spacey/ daydreamey...

    interesting. it would explain why I turn into a mini ISTJ 5 minutes before bed.
    - do I have enough pillows?
    - is my alarm set correctly?
    - is my room locked?
    - is my phone off?
    - is there anything that could possibly disturb me?
    - that mess is bothering me, better take care of it before I go to sleep
    I can't sleep until everything is perfect. it's weird and it only happens right before bed

    it's interesting that most of you non NPs say Ne is one of your favorite functions, but it most of the time I see Ne being used in real life, people tend to ridicule it subtly or make fun of it.

    Ti I suppose. Or maybe a combination of all my active cognitive functions. Ne is pretty awesome too.

    Fe is a bit of a party pooper sometimes.

    I think perceiving functions are the most pure fun though, especially the extroverted ones - even if Ti can be satisfying it's not really on the same level.

    It would get exhausting to have to Se/Ne too often, though.

    I love feeling that the world is a beautiful place, and I have recently come to a deep than mental understanding of it.

    Is that Ni, Fi, Se?
