I think ISTPs are known to be conspiracy theorists.

    I think this is where Keirsey way oversimplified SPs into believing in "luck" because SPs tend to attribute magical meaning to physical objects, actually projecting meaning on to superstitious things like lucky rabbit's feet or "bad omens" of walking under a ladder, or whatever. This is also why an SPs religious behavior can lean so much toward the pagan or the tribal, because their Ni is so tied to their preference for Se.

    That being said, types with Ni are probably likely to "just know" things (or think they do) and types with Fe are most likely to be able "sense" other people's feelings, for example, and have a heightened awareness of sending and receiving emotion and "reading into" the likes, dislikes, wants, and needs of loved ones...perhaps more than they even know their own.
    Cool information!

    Ni for me has been reduced to an internal whisper in my ear that rarely functions anymore. Ti doesn't have a chance to recognize it, that would take some practice. But I am quite capable of changing modes if I have to. For example, my Ti combines well with Se, especially in certain circumstances. That's ESTP. I'm not an ESTP, but I can act like the description sometimes. Ti would have a hard time combining with Ni because they are such disparate functions - mystical versus rational. If Ni was stronger I would have to literally keep them separate.

    Fi doesn't have to direct Ni...any J function can.
    Like you've asked, Fi and Ni can be confusing to identify. According to the theory- NTJs and SFPs would have Fi and Ni working together.

    Hm, maybe it's the other way around sometimes then and Fi comes in to balance Ti and Ni.

    Yeah Fi would direct Ni in an ISFP.

    Kind of. I think my S functions balance all my N and F and T because they are so far out there I would be totally ungrounded otherwise. So in a way I've had to work to stay in touch with my senses too. I dunno, I'm complicated. Good observation.

    Although me and you agree about your tritype, if you had to pick between SFP and NTJ, the latter is clearly a better choice in my opinion.
