    And when I said I don't see it in myself, I meant I don't usually like to do this sort of thing. If I actually make a statement like this, supported by T reasoning, I feel somewhat uncomfortable, though the more reasoning is included, the less uncomfortable, sure.
    What is "T reasoning"?

    Jung's meticulous and dense description of Ni doms follows.

    ...

    Focal point for my post:

    To summarize, he says Ni-doms normally are not concerned with the moral implications of what they've drawn as a "mystical dreamer and seer," and when they are, they're generally too removed from the reality of the object cognitively to act on this. In other words, the Ni dom may come to understand the deep principles underlying reality but lacks the ability to connect these to real world events or express the importance of this understanding, so cannot act upon these practically. This would be, as far as I'm concerned, an example of how Jung saw Ni doms as the superstitious ones (crying in the wilderness... picture the disheveled guy holding a "the world is ending" sign), though I certainly see similar conclusions about detachment from the object in his text about Si doms. Both Si doms and Ni doms are acting upon an imagined reality due to the introverted attitude of their perception...

    Disclaimer: Jung's focus was on the deeply troubled people who he saw in his practice, so his type descriptions are all about people who are varying levels of unhealthy. Still, I agree with Jung's assessment of Ni and Si, and think they are structurally valuable at levels Briggs-Myers' revisions don't address in Gifts Differing.

    So, Ni-doms, can you give examples from your experience that reflects or contradicts Jung's analysis? Do you think you see things very deeply, but in ways that feel impossible to express, and maybe make no practical sense once they're out in the open?
    I can say, yes, I agree it used to happen all the time, but I cannot give a specific example. For the record, I hate being required to give specific examples, since Ni gleans principles, but that's a slightly different subject. But yes, I was married to an ISTP for 26 years, so the number of times it was pointed out to me that my ideas were not practical are too numerous to count. I get these lovely "ideal world" sort of ideas that are just rubbish when trying to implement them. I end up compromising, but feeling sick that I have compromised. Blah. I hate even thinking about it.

    Thank goodness I am older now (almost 55) and some of my other cognitive traits have kicked in, so I'm not so bad as I was.

    Just for the record, I don't care for the descriptive: "not concerned with the moral implications". That seems unfair and unkind, and certainly can't be true for an entire group of people. Perhaps you could rephrase that?

    I know. I just don't know what YOU mean by "T reasoning" in what you said. Overly abstract statement.

    In the serpent joke, I meant the reasoning for why it's insulting for the ancestors.

    Applying it to myself, I mean it in context of a debate/discussion (excluding jokes), they are statements that come from an impersonal stance, that's not going to be any less abstract until I dig up examples from my memory

    Civility in family? Oh no, must be pretty boring. :p

    Right though, I did think Ti would be okay with dealing with abstract ideas. Even if only to cruelly dissect them ;p

    Ti doms can dislike interpersonal conflict and they can have principles about how other people should be treated that they live by. They can also have learned from experience that dealing with a pissed off wife is a horrendous pain in the ass.

    But seriously, the only time I have ever seen my husband badger another human being was in a formal debate in college. That was in the early nineties, if memory serves.

    Abstract ideas don't exist in a vacuum in any real sense. They are attached to people's opinions and feelings and egos. I don't believe it is possible to dissect them away from their human owners and debate them in an emotionally sterile environment and so one must take that into consideration and decide whether one wants to pay the interpersonal price of such an exchange.

    well okay

    ah, I do it a lot myself and I can use Ti for it easily (or I call it Ti anyway)

    I somewhat disagree - I find it silly that there should be an interpersonal price for such discussions/debates. :/

    Sure, opinions can be attached to egos but I sometimes have these moments where it no longer matters. I kind of like those moments. It does make me feel extremely detached though, your expression "emotionally sterile" is actually pretty much spot on.

    Anyway when it's not "emotionally sterile" like that, I don't at all mind a heated discussion and I don't feel there would have to be any "interpersonal price" paid if the other party also likes such debates. If other party prefers to stay detached emotionally - without taking anything personally either -, that's just as fine, I enjoy debating with such people just as much

    Of course I may not be Ti-dom, I just think I use Ti in these discussions.

    Your Ti-dom partner, what does he/she say then to your crazy Ni claims when you choose to ignore logic?

    He offers alternatives and, as I said, leaves it at that unless my ideas threaten to inconvenience him in some concrete way. He doesn't consider it his job to fix me and I don't consider it my job to fix him.
