    Anyways. Not to sound too kumbaya or whatever, but I think that each type possesses its own distinctive kind of genius. It's hard for me to go for the knee jerk response that Ne-doms are the best for generating ideas, because while they're well-suited to innovation they really don't have much to say in the way of logistics. I think practical ideas are of great value. It's why the ISTPs ingenious approach to the physical world is so fascinating to me. It's all inspiration. It's all worthy.

    Anyways. My point is that I don't want the discussion to be limited to just one kind of ideas or approach to thinking.
    For sure. Glad you brought this in early on in the thread. Kumbaya, sister lol.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    YOU, Raptorwizaurd, are the best at generating ideas.

    To synthesize what's already been said..

    Open-ended or problem/domain-specific? On-point or musing? Pragmatic or abstract? Purposeful or not? Degree of 'filtering'?

Ne is totally awesome too, of course
    I don't think there's anything inherently more complex about Ni than Ne. They're just the two ways that intuition can be utilized. More original... perhaps. They're very individualized.

    N-auxs use Ne/Ni data to help with coming to conclusions about whatever it is. The N-doms use aux-J to structure their perceptions.

    N-doms would be better at idea generation because that's their default state - to simply perceive rather than to judge. I think for N-doms, their intuition is an end in itself, whereas for the aux-Ns, it's a means to draw conclusions from.

    I guess it could be any of those things. I'm basically wondering which types in general will come up with these new alternatives, in any field.

    I voted for my own type ENFP because I've never been bored in my life and I cannot even imagine running out of ideas.

    ENTP's are the best type for generating ideas.

    I have to say, I'm pretty fucking good at this, and the ideas I have are usually not wild and crazy but far-reaching and sensical, but still creative. Thus I voted ENTJ.

    ESTJ are vastly superior.

    If it comes to quantity of ideas and quickness, probably a ENP, if it comes to originality and depth, then most of the introvert types are fair game, yes even Si dominants can be very creative and original in their perceptual associations, Jung described them as being like artists.
