    Okay, I think your thread was named incorrectly, because what you're asking really isn't "Why do Ni-doms suspend their disbelief?", but "Why do Ni-doms watch movies that I don't like?"

    I'm pretty sure there are some Ti-doms out there that also watch movies that you don't like. And I'm pretty sure that the bolded is subjective to the point of being impossible to discuss.

    Only if you completely mischaracterize it by putting in words such as ALL INTJs (Ni-doms) and NO INTPS. In other words, ideas that I didn't express.

    Okay.

    Then here's my answer: All types have the potential to suspend disbelief. My example of Ti-doms was chosen because you're a Ti-dom, but since it turns out you aren't excluding all the types, then I'll say that people suspend disbelief for universal human reasons.

    People of all types like shitty movies. In my opinion, Ni-dom reasons for suspending disbelief are the same as the general human reasons for doing so, e.g. escapism. And I'm guessing you don't agree with me, or else you wouldn't have made the thread.

    The nature of Ni dominant is to have a great appreciation for the possible. Whereas its opposite, Se, has a great appreciation for the actual. Fiction stories are rife with possibilities. If they weren't at least possible realities, they wouldn't make for very believable fiction stories. I agree we all allow ourselves to be sucked into a story in order to get some entertainment value out of it. But not to the point of losing touch with reality.

    I think you may have just answered your own question, Mal. Most of this post could be used as an easy and clear answer to your question.

    But the last two sentences (bolded) are a complete non sequitur. Losing touch with reality? Do you mean, the reality of how stupid the movies they like are? Because, again, that's so subjective that it takes the entire conversation to a halt, unless you don't mean "stupid" but instead mean something that can be objectively agreed upon from the plot of "Avatar".

    I didn't rate the movie in that particular comment, so it can't be a non sequitur. But implying that a movie can't be objectively good or bad is a separate argument. My original question relies on the assumption that Avatar is objectively bad, not subjectively bad. Even if you can't grant me that assumption, that doesn't mean my question falls apart. You can see above that my question can survive without any reference to a bad movie such as Avatar.

    Why is it that I cannot get the term 'confirmation bias' out of my head while reading through this thread?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
