    Jung wrote that Ni is supposed to take some useful stuff out of "collective (un)consciousness". He believed that the history of your ancestors is somehow inherited to you. I have no idea how this is supposed to help you perceive the world...

    I'm an INFJ and I don't understand Introverted Intuition! It is very useful to just "know" things at times, however.

    I also get "psychic" flashes at times, such as accurately reading other people's minds, or knowing exactly what's about to happen. This ability is very erractic, unfortunately. Sometimes my intuition is uncannily accurate, but at other times it dries up completely. I wish I knew how to switch it on at need!

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    ESTP: Can sell you a POS used car, when you probably don't even need one. Umm... a car that is, no one needs a POS.

    We INFPs can absorb external negativity into ourselves until it forms a black hole in the center of our chests and destroys us. That's our magical power. Pretty neat, huh?

    I've heard that we're all empaths, and some of us can't turn it off at will, so it gets pretty miserable, especially if we are surrounded by negative or hostile people or have to be around too much conflict.

    I find myself extra receptive to the thoughts of others when I am sleeping. If someone is in the same room as I am, reading something late at night while I sleep, I will dream about whatever that person is reading about or thinking about. It happens just about every time.

    I also occasionally pick up on songs that people have stuck in their heads, but I don't know the source when it happens, so I think that I am thinking of it randomly until I start humming it and get a shocked reaction from someone.

    I am an artist, and I find that when I draw things without a plan, just letting the art flow out, the things I draw end up relating to experiences that I will have weeks, months, or years in the future. Usually this is disturbing when it happens because the drawings that come true are rarely about positive things. This ability is just as useless as knowing songs that are stuck in people's heads because I have no way of knowing which drawings will relate to the future and which are just ordinary art until after the events that I draw about happen, and by then it is too late to change anything.

    I believe I have a decent understanding of it (as much as I do the other functions). Skepticize away.

    For the record, Jack, no one, not even Ni-reliant users like myself, understands fully what the heck it does. I've seen it nailed down in theory, picked apart, jabbed at, boiled, skewered, eaten with cream cheese. But as to it's "here I am!" four corners, it's an amorphous blob that reserves the right to change at any moment.

    I strike mine with my shoe frequently. That maintains order for a good ten minutes. At least until an Ne-user comes along to take control.
