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?
A combination of Ni and Se.
For me...Ni's a mixed bag. Gives me a big picture view of the world, which at the same time gives me a bad sense of me being insignificant.
I much prefer Te and Se. Keeps me connected to the world.
Even when we have lost hope in resolving the problems we have, we are still fundamentally part and parcel of the world. By virtue of this understanding, we can do anything realisable within the universe. [So don't give up ]
If you don't like the way this universe is - go somewhere else!" - Richard Feynman
Ti is my hero. It gives confidence and comfort. Even if Ne/Fe do not produce spectacular results (wealth, fame, security), I trust Ti to provide some understanding of the circumstances in which I find myself. If I understand then I can persevere.
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...
You turn into your opposite type, not just s-to-n or n-to-s.
Ne, for sure. I am happiest when I can be spontaneous or procrastinate and just go with the flow and follow my ideas, or explore my world, or live in imaginary land (either of my own making, or by watching movies or reading fiction). I also love to analyze topics of my own choosing (less so for structured things like school or work assignments, though, because deadlines and structure smack of Te/Si) and play with theories about things I'm genuinely interested in.
I also like to tell stories, which apparently is a form of Ne mixing fantasy with the reality of the present moment or something.
Speaking of procrastination and work assignments, I really better stop posting...
I actually think it may just be that more P's posted here than J's.
Although most people here seem to like their extraverted function more.
Yea, extroversion seems more comfortable overall.. Introverted functions remind me of being serious and lame and tired and uptight. (I'm not accusing introverts/ people with introverted functions of being this way, it's just a feeling that comes about in myself when I think of introversion within myself.)

Well duh you're going to feel that way if you're an ESFP.
