You are using the correct Jungian terminalogy and I was using my Ni. Ni doesn't have a vocabulary, I make up words.
Connective and exploring in my mind is very similar to divergent.
Ni distinguishing means it lands on the "correct" one, it discards possibilities very quickly, hence it converges.
I'll bow out now because I see language and precision is going to continue be an issue and the a Ne/Ni and Te/Ti divide here is very strong. There isn't a single Ni, Te or Te Ni in this thread with me.
You guys are more skilled and adept at the intricacies of the theory. I can see that clearly, so me trying to pretend I'm on the same level as you is ludicrous and I won't go there.
