    No, I know many S types who have gone through, some who are still going through, depression and it doesn't make them more intuitive. It does, however, seem to heightened certain aspects of their already existing personality. For example, my xSFP sister in law, the more depressed she becomes, the more "impulsive" things she does.

    I'd agree that I experienced more of my tertiary Ni during my depressive state. But I also think it was a lot of Fi+Ni looping action.

    Hmm... I'm guilty of this, too.

    I suppose it depends on the depressive episode.

    For me, it's like this:

    Negative external source out of my control-->stupid, impulsive behavior/reaction (Se in combination with distraught Fi) -->examination of both negative source and stupid impulsive behavior (Fi in combination with Ni)

    But intuition is pulled out by depression alone.

    You might be compromised in ways that others wouldn’t be in those instances, and vice versa. Regardless of what played the major role, it didn't seem to affect the end result for you.

    I'm not seeing the connection here.

    You're looking beyond concrete form, for something deeper.

    That sounds more akin to introversion really, I'm not sure if depression would make someone perceive connections between things more than usual. Maybe because many people stop being active and perhaps that leads to sensory information given less weight. But at the same time I can imagine tert/inferior sensors engaging in a lot of unhealthy sensory activities such as overeating or self-harm.
