ENP philosophers like Henri Bergson, Michael Foucault, and William James, for instance, felt that philosophies built on deductions and static concepts could never accurately capture the essential nature of reality. Unsurprisingly, they both emphasized percepts (Ne) as being more trustworthy and reliable than the concepts and elaborate frameworks promulgated by other philosophers.

INTJs and INFJs, by contrast, tend to be more comfortable with working with static concepts and conceptual frameworks. In doing so, INJs are not intentionally closing off their minds. Rather, as we’ve seen, Introverted Intuition, by its very nature, seems to be more convergent and dare I say, analytical, then Ne. One might even suggest, as Lenore Thomson has, that Ni has a stronger left-brained character than Ne does. Hence, INJs are generally more comfortable working with deduction, concepts, and static/”eternal” ideas. Both Plato and Jung are classic examples.
It seems to to say that Ni is a static system preference and Ne a dynamic one, which I'm trying to understand in terms of something other than being relative to time since Ni is clearly time-focussed - flowing, even, - and initially could be described as fluid or dynamic more easily than Ne. Perhaps the actual *models* of thought are static: Maybe Ni sees *patterns* and *waves* that occur frequently and so frames it's world in multiple static constructs, choosing to stand by the singularity assimilated from all the passive data in the past, still seeing the dynamic pattern relative to time.

That's just my interpretation of the text.
