    Ni means traits like being good at reading signs and anticipating what's going to happen. An Ni-dom animal is also stubborn and can seem "detached" and it can be seen that they observe the big picture instead of details. I would presume that a lot of herding dogs are Ns. My own dog, a rough collie, is pretty stubborn and seems "detached" and she seems to see the big picture. I'm not sure yet wether she is exceptionally good at reading signs and anticipating what's going to happen... I'll have to observe her more closely. But she's a strong candidate for being Ni-dom, imo

    I haven't really thought about what Ne would mean in animals... but I guess it would have something to do with seeing the big picture, as well. And being easily excitable.

    I don't have pet, only a plant. He's an INTJ mastermind who's contemplating my (and humanity's) destruction, and he's always creeping me out by just sitting there radiating an evil aura. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I swear he was at the foot of the bed, staring at me.

    My pet jumping spider was definitely an ENTP.

    Could you please take a snipping and clone him for me? My Venus flytraps are far too passive. Your sounds much more like "Audrey", who is the plant I was looking for!

    P.S. Any tips you could share regarding training such said alleged plant clone into ravenous monster that eats my neighbor would be appreciated if such said scenario and/or neighbor + alleged plant were based on real characters albeit in a ficticious novel... ...

    I'll try if the bastard will let me come close enough. But he's been grown mainly on a diet of lukewarm water, smurfs and some angry spit.

    I have a neighbour whos braindead dog I'm trying to get the plant to go eat. He might need steroids in order to win the deathmatch. If there's such a thing as plant steroids.

    BUT I'm hypothetically strapped for hypothetical cash, so for hypothetical money I could hypothetically kill the annoying neighbour in your novel.

    my cat is unpredictable and skittish, maybe a etype 6, hopefully counterphobic...pretty sure he IS a 6 and very attidudinal by nature, fluffy with a heart of stone, part X with some N thrown in, fairly balanced E/I. confrontational when it comes to food however his claws are used lightly, unless he's up against a whimpy chickadee then it's no rest until digest. haha j/k he's a snuggler and i luv him. (not sure if it's mutual, but i feel some responsibility regardless).

    My cat is an ISFP, type 9w8 on the Enneagram.

    He's incredibly peaceful, lazy and affectionate, yet he very much likes to test his power around the house by moving into our spots when we're gone and meowing until he gets what he wants. He's a total power freak, but much more a peaceful cat.

    I don’t know if this will vindicate all you happy pet-typers who have become the laughing stocks of this forum, but Otto Kroeger admitted using “typewatching” with pets as well as people in his book.

    lol I read that one. I think he said his two cats were ENTP and ISTJ, iirc.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
