    Well...maybe. Other things Ni-users enjoy include wandering around in a dream-like stupor, spouting conspiracy theories, and plotting the downfall of the waitress who served your coffee cold.

    A nice classic example could be found in a thread, now in the graveyard.

    Ni: What is my own way of seeing things, independent of influences such as other people's ideas, other people's expectations, my culture, my language, or reality itself?
    Introverted functions are going with your ideas,thoughts, etc without worrying about how others think, feel, etc.

    Sounds like Lenores tertiary Ni. "I can't possibly go along with this, 'cuz it's all a lie. It's all a set-up by the Man"

    Here is something from lenore about using Ni as opposed to Se.

    The Secondary Function would say: "What is really dangerous here and what's just a paper tiger? What are some options you haven't considered yet only because the current way appears--falsely--to be necessarily so?"

    I expected my Ni to help ground my Fe, not take me off on another tangical line. Though I love tangical lines and I like hearing what Ni is thinking...drives me nuts when a Ni lead is drifting and I see those wheels turning...

    Bah. *shakes off daydream*

    Okay, so what else does Ni do?
    Love is the point.

    Oooh yes, good point. Fuzz, forget about your Fe. Do something really weird that people around you won't approve of (may I recommend that the next time you eat, you do it in your underwear, wearing a Greek fisherman's cap and musing on the writings of Bertrand Russell?).

    Seriously, though, Ni might 'ground' your Fe in the sense that you may let go of Fe a bit. What I mean is...Ni ideas can often oppose what Fe is supposed to be about...so it can be an interesting predicament. The two can definitely go hand in hand, don't get me wrong...but at times Ni/Ti thoughts oppose what Fe would have you do.

    Lol, Ni/Ti completely oppose Fe in terms of what "society" thinks,feels, etc.

    ISTP reponse - If I dont care about them, I dont care what they think about me.

    Cascade has it. Ni can be engaged in exactly such a manner. Like "Slaughterhouse Five" in your mind.

    What if I grabbed *your* butt in public? That's *clearly* engaging Ni.

    Hand -- grab -- butt -- Ni owner being grabbed

    Scientific really.

    Ahaha. Pink, stop making excuses to grab people's butts!

    Though if we think about it, the hand reaches out, cleaving personal boundaries, changing the entire dynamic. Is it a symbol of appreciation? Playfulness? Sexuality? Aggression?

    *ritually disembowels self for musing on the symbolism behind groping*

    I don't NEED an excuse! I'm a REBEL (and stuff)!

    Your Ni is voluptuous and shiny.
