Random thing about Ne + Ti or Fi - I looooove puzzles and brain teasers. I was and am a big time nerd >.< I was a part of the "brain bowl" teams in highschool (I remember being the only girl on the team once, even though in the school I went to academic excellence and being good at advanced math were considered good things for everyone including girls and many girls took AP sciences and math) and you know those quiz teams that compete against schools? Oh yeah, I was like 'SIGN ME UP!' I have a membership to that brain training website 'Lumosity' now even though I don't use it often (that's the "P") part. (Yes, I was clearly hugely popular in school, too)
I'm a global learner and sometimes I stay up because I have to keep finding information - my INFJ friend told me it's been proven that new information can tingle your brain like a drug. So I'll start on a Wikipedia subject and keep lily-padding and reading different subjects. I know LOL 'information porn'.
When I learn how to do things, I usually don't put too much thought into it, I take mental notes of some key things but mostly I try to mimic in whole my teacher. Same with languages. I get the 'gist' of the language, not the fine mechanics of it, so I can pick up survival skills for travelling pretty well, but my 'J' friends will make fun of my misuse of grammar and gendering nouns (they think they're SOOOOO cool). However, I feel I will be more comfortable and conversationally fluent before someone more hung up on the finer points. :P Same with dance classes, they move too fast to pick up every move if you are a beginner, but I notice the general flow of the movements and I'll use that and timing instead of concentrating on executing each move perfectly (honestly with how quickly some 'beginner' classes move, you really can't unless you are *not* a beginner dancer).
I feel like physically I'm a pretty good mimic, physical limitations etc. not withstanding, purely because of the Ne dominance. I think being Ne dom means you don't think too much about stuff before you do it and you aren't even very aware of all the parts, but you have a 'sense' of things before you start. That's why when I start something with 'a lot of moving parts' or things that are supposed to be difficult, I try to devour as much information as I can about it, but eventually I just get comfortable having a 'sense' of it then I do it. Or keep doing something until all the blanks in my head are filled.
If that makes sense. This might be how everyone learns, who knows :P.
I love focusing on 1 puzzle or question at time, but with brain teasers I often think a little then start button mashing because thinking about the answer too much can suck the fun out of it. Many times, unless it's for a memory question, I'll just let my intuition guide me. I can't tell you beforehand how to solve it, but it gets figured out eventually.
