    My waking life was once little more than a stream of "Conscious Daydreams", as Jennifer called them.

    I hadn't even noticed that slip away from me.

    I was never prone to sexual fantasies.

    Lately I have a recurring daydream/nightdream that I am a horse unable to cease my furious gallop, running faster and faster until eventually I bust into a cloud of ash, swirling away in the winds . . .

    At least he doesn't daydream about killing beautiful women and banging evil people. Then we'd have to do more than ban him. (Like, call the Cuckoo's Nest.)

I haven't had that one in a few years, nor have I had the one about stabbing myself in the heart. Life has obviously gotten better.

    Off topic, but your comment, mycroft, about the ruthless nature of Ni has made quite an impact on me.

    Really.

    Why do you suppose the Ni nature is inherently ruthless, Mycroft?

    My guess is because INxJs are so rare that they are picked on during their youth.

    Ni is ruthless because it holds no point of view, really, as the "most accurate." It can reposition itself to perceive ANY viewpoint. There is really no inherent "best" externally objective moral POV, there is only a point of view that is chosen by the viewer...

    This would seem to conflict with one's sense of how people should be treated externally (or COULD conflict, easily).

    I found Mycroft's comment intriguing. INFJ would be in conflict. INTJ would not, though... which might lead to the "ruthless" reputation some INTJs acquire in pursuit of their goals.

    Thank you for that explanation, Jennifer, makes sense. Sometimes when you see something written a certain way it gives you pause.

    I'm still letting this notion drift about my mind, but I'll attempt to explain what I meant. What Jennifer posted is a good, rational explanation. How I will attempt to expound is based upon personal experience and not much more, so bear with me.

    Ni, in my experience, is charged with that imperative; that sense of "humans, animals, plants; life forms, in all their shapes and sizes, they come and they go. But this, this is beyond all of that. This is the way it must be, and I'll see to it!"

    I can't really explain further without sounding like a nut case, but in my experience, Ni causes everything to seem like so much mist, and the revelations you have as so much more important that, hey, if you got to break a few eggs to make your omelet, then so be it. Te is, like all things consciously perceived, simply a tool used to implement these imperatives.

    This being my experience, I was always curious how people for whom Fe is their secondary function, with its emphasis on the relationships between creatures that Ni would implicitly posit as nothing more than transient phenomena, reconcile those two.

    ...at any rate, I tried, and if this sounds like hogwash, you'll forgive me. Maybe in the future I'll be better able to elucidate what I mean.
