    ESPN *chuckles* That's a good one.

    My brother is an ESFJ and he doesn't care at about types etc at all like most sensors I know. I think it has to do with what they found are of more value. Knowing about self and how we connect to other things is something Ni wants. For people with Se, being out there an experiencing things is much more enjoyable. For without Ni, types will be nothing more than mere labels. They can't see any practical purpose to it... and thus show no interest.

    Usually the answer I get is, "Why should I think about things that have nothing to do with me?" It's the old orator vs. philosopher argument. They are just convinced that if it can't be perceived directly then it has no benefit. In their minds it's pretty much, "Why worry about the things that I can't touch, see, hear, taste, or smell?"

    He's actually very funny and good with snappy come-backs (prepared ahead of time, usually) and short jokes.
    We have lots of fun around the dinner table, since our 3 kids walk in his footsteps!

    Yeah, I've practically begged my two sisters to take the test and no way they'll do it. They can't see the point, not interested, even just for fun. I don't understand it at all.

    Can anyone else see how prominent Ni is in "A Course In Miracles?"

    1. Nothing I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] means anything.
    2. I have given everything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] all the meaning that it has for me.
    3. I do not understand anything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place].
    4. These thoughts do not mean anything. They are like the things I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place].
    5. I am never upset for the reason I think.
    6. I am upset because I see something that is not there.
    7. I see only the past.
    8. My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.
    9. I see nothing as it is now.
    10. My thoughts do not mean anything.
    11. My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless* world.
    12. I am upset because I see a meaningless world.
    13. A meaningless world engenders fear.
    14. God did not create a meaningless world.
    15. My thoughts are images that I have made.

    (etc)

    *"Meaningless" here means "without inherent meaning," with the insinuation that what meaning we see in things is what meaning we have placed in them.

    I just found it interesting, based on our discussion here...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    1. Nothing I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] means anything. - yes
    2. I have given everything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] all the meaning that it has for me. - semi-yes... you can see it as Ni, but it somehow also reminds me of religious ISFJ
    3. I do not understand anything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place]. - big yes
    4. These thoughts do not mean anything. They are like the things I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place]. - Uh huh
    5. I am never upset for the reason I think. - maybe
    6. I am upset because I see something that is not there. - yes
    7. I see only the past. - no, Si
    8. My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts. - no, Si
    9. I see nothing as it is now. - possibly
    10. My thoughts do not mean anything. - big yes
    11. My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless* world. - Objection! Ni never has meaningless thoughts! :steam:
    12. I am upset because I see a meaningless world. okay
    13. A meaningless world engenders fear. not Ni
    14. God did not create a meaningless world. maybe... pushing it
    15. My thoughts are images that I have made. yes


    7 yeses, 4 maybes, 4 nos... you might have a point there. Although it looks like something written for SFJs in my opinion. =/

    Oh, you're one of those knights who use Ni?
    Nothing wrong with Ni poetry in my opinion...

    Yeah, I tend to be more forward-facing than the poem sounds. The past is more a reference point for projecting the future than anything else. That is primarily where it's value lies for me.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
