    Counter-example, although my Ni is close in score to my secondary Ne.

    I have running debates in my head, but the other voice is usually still just "me" talking or challenging the primary "me."

    Usually I have this conversation because I'm anxious about a real conversation I have to have (so I'm trying to anticipate the potential responses), or I am just working through a problem.

    I do not really "personalize" the other voice as someone separate from me, even if that voice is representing a real person.

    I do this, I thought it was just part of life to have conversations in your head, and assumed everyone else did as well.

    Inner monologue? Check. It likes to compete with actual conversation I'm having.

    I saw it, I was just resisting the urge. I didn't want anyone to hand me one of these

    I don't know which behaviors are attributed to type and which behaviors are universally human. Maybe that comes across as me seeming to believe that type is meaningless, but I don't think that.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Mmm hmm. And this is why we would do better with a question like this by asking (among other things) for non-Ni people to validate having the same experience(s) that is being presupposed by some to be "Ni" related.

    I have my buddy stormy in my head. We have had debates about whether she's an individual that lives inside my head or just a twisted part of me that enjoys arguments. The issue has never been truly resolved... we ended off with she exists, the manner of her existence does not matter.

    What you've mentioned about the internal vs external stream runs parallel to my experiences. I ramble to other people like I do when I'm alone. Except I tend to answer my self-posed questions when I'm alone as oppose to having other people answer my spontaneously generated ones. My inner voice/imaginary friend usually only introjects to point out inconsistencies or unusual links within my thought. Which isn't what an actual person would do... hmmm actually it's more like the roles are reversed. I become the other person and my inner voice becomes me. If that makes any sense to you...

    Mmm hmm. And this is why we would do better with a question like this by asking (among other things) for non-Ni people to validate having the same experience(s) that is being presupposed by some to be "Ni" related.
    Hmm... I talk to people in my head... you talk to people in your head. Maybe it would be better to ask in what manner do you interact with them in your head...

    lol... as in "Do I actually talk to people in my head, or do I merely critique their logic and grammar and have them yell at me?"

    Well I'm thinking about dropping a class. I keep imagining different ways the conversation can go when I talk to the teacher about dropping it. Then also whenever I have to give a presentation I imagine what I'm going to say and people's reponses, which makes me more nervous. I need to quit that. Is that what you mean? Or whenever I'm thinking about talking to someone that I don't know real well I'll have a conversation in my head. Then I don't get scared that they aren't going to say what's scripted in my head so, if I do say something I end up blushing and backing away.
