    LOL. Good one, Kalach.

    Your sarcasm is awesome, even if we ENFPs are the butt of your joke.

    YouTube - Radiohead - Climbing Up The Walls

    I am the key to the lock in your house
    That keeps your toys in the basement.
    And if you get too far inside
    You'll only see my reflection.

    It's always best when the candle's out,
    I am the pick in the ice.
    Do not cry out or hit the alarm,
    You know we're friends 'til we die.

    And either way you turn
    I'll be there
    Open up your skull
    I'll be there
    Climbing up the walls

    It's always best when the light is off,
    It's always better on the outside.
    Fifteen blows to the back of your head,
    Fifteen blows to your mind.

    So lock the kids up safe tonight
    And shut the eyes in the cupboard.
    I've got the smell of a local man
    Who's got the loneliest feeling.

    That either way he turns - I'll be there
    Open up your skull - I'll be there
    Climbing up the walls

    Climbing up the walls
    Climbing up the walls

    ^ yeah, that's a horrible song, isn't it. The ghost of sensing as a mauling phantasm in the intuition.

    Introverted intuition, the past and introverted sensing.

    It seems strange to say Ni is about the past. But is it? Is it more akin to Si than I previously thought? I have wondered if that terrible man, State, is not right.

    Ni does draw on the past. How? Why? I dunno. But it does. I observe this in myself for example by observing that with all this theorising on typological relationships, I almost never make speculations about types I have little experience with.

    But introverted intuition is not bound to the past. It seeks to be free of the past. There is no substantial comfort to be found in repetition, for example. Indeed, repetition is oftentimes substantially distasteful. So, Ni is hungry for novelty, perhaps as hungry as Ne. But not in the same way. Ni is certainly not in-the-moment. So what novelty does it seek?

    Observe a fault people find with INTJs sometimes, that we frequently will, without recognising it, shift perspective on some issue and claim to have been right all along. That is the novelty Ni seeks, novelty of perspective. The new aspect or nuance or connection in the old issue. The depth of connection to other forms. Ni seeks that novelty. It seeks that freedom.

    Thus, observe, Ni-speak looks like Si-speak, it looks like the statement of a worldview that lays down the law, the rules on what is and is not. But this misses an aspect of Ni, that introverted intuition draws on what was and what is and then seeks to be free of it.


    ^ and that's an example right there of introverted intuition seeking to be free. What was, what is, is discussed, and then a new perspective is generated to change the rules and provide freedom.


    What freedom? The freedom to believe that this whole thread has NOT been just an explanation of why some relationship cannot work.

    Doesn't it draw from the collective unconsciousness?
    That would explain the similarities between Si and Ni.

    I think you may be attributing much to Ni that isn't properly part of Ni.

    There is indeed a similarity between Si and Ni. Si remembers facts and details. Ni remembers patterns and relationships, absent details. The reason, I believe, that Ni seems spooky, even to ourselves, is that we're remembering patterns that we don't recall remembering: the patterns we remember often have no associated details with which to ground them. The patterns are thus not "bound by" the past, and are applied, sometimes quite inappropriately, to similar patterns in our present.

    However, I would not ascribe the emotional content, e.g., a desire for freedom and novelty, to Ni, per se. I can see the connection, but I would describe it more as a tendency, not a "hunger." Ni happens to find its most useful applications by taking lessons learned in one context and applying them to another context, seemingly unrelated. Even if its analysis is completely wrong, the very different perspective often provides insights no one else has. As an INTJ in particular, one will immediately notice that one's intuition is totally off base, use Te to compare and evaluate, and then build a completely new intuitive (Ni) picture that is amazingly complete and accurate. The new intuitive perspective is applied going forward.

    The more experiences we have, the more we use our Ni, the greater the library of patterns stored up in Ni, and the more insightful our intuition. Thus it is like Si, because it is memory, it is prior experience, it is from our past.

    Sorry, waaaaay too early for me to decode Kalach's post, but for all of y'all who are interested in hearing, hahaha, no, reading, a REAL LIFE example, not necessarily demonstrative of an ENFP/INTJ=Disasterous combo, but one that shows how things may go shaky at times due to our type differences, (and don't worry, this example has a happy ending ).

    Anyhow...

    Yesterday, I came over to my boyfriend's house, and yes, for those who're not privy, he's an INTJ, and I was in an especially good and bubbly mood, earlier, while waiting for a special, a very special, waxing appointment I meandered my way into a used CD/DVD/ store and found a relatively obscure film he had once mentioned he'd love to find and own, "score", I thought, also I got a lot of shit done yesterday, and he and I were texting and talking back and forth throughout the day, and I was in I'm-in-lurrrrrve mode...

    Side note: He has a ravenous, insatiable appetite, as in, he eats like a sumo wrestler yet he somewhat miraculously maintains this perfectly lean/muscular physique, hahahha, lucky bastard! :P

    So, while out, I picked up a burrito, went home, cut it in half, ate the half, and then saved the other half for him, potentially, or for myself, if he didn't want it. (I hate wasting food).

    So, after I ate I packed a whole bunch of crap in my car, including the left over half burrito, that I put it in a Borders bag, don't ask, and 30 minutes later I was at his house, dressed cute, beaming.

    After dropping all my bags to the floor, I took out the Borders bag, and said something to the effect of, "hey, I brought you a burrito, are you hungry?"

    To which he replied, errrrr, and reacted with a look, along with a look of disdain/distate.

    Something about this reaction immediately plummeted my feelings, I thought, why couldn't he just say, "oh, thanks babe, I don't really feel like that, right now", or " I'm not in the mood for Mexican", to which I would've replied with, "cool, cool, maybe I or you will have it later" and then I would have gone on with my happy-go-lucky self.

    Ugh, it was something about his grossed out face, his absolute lack of appreciation that turned me off and angry, and then, when I was peeing, he had the audacity to come up to me and show me the burrito and say, "it looks disgusting!!!"

    Then, I was so pissed and hurt that I almost cried.

    Dude, I just brought him this food because I know he's always hungry, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN OFFENDED AT ALL, if he did not like, and, or feel like the food I brought him.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ^ That was the start of the fight.

    But, we talked it through, and it basically came out that for him, it takes time to process things, (even something as small as whether or not to eat half a burrito), and more than that it takes time for him to formulate his thought processes into words, unlike me, he can't immediately process/spew his thoughts out.

    Understanding this, my feelings were still hurt, I told him about the Valentine's day gift I excitedly found for him, I waxed a very sensitive area for him, and I brought over half a burrito thinking, hey, he might be hungry, and I felt shot down.

    <A lot more discussion occurrs>

    Then, as a joke, I said something like, "Oh, whatever, I don't need you, it was nice knowing you, thanks for the company, and your c*ck, oh, your friend Max is really cute, I think I'm gonna go call him, blah, blah, blah,"

    Basically, in order to TOTALLY LIGHTEN THE MOOD,

    I was joking how I could and would get me a new shiny boyfriend. :P

    (Seriously, my tone was so light and fluffy, and incredibly sarcastic/silly).

    Then, much later in the night, he sits me down.

    (I could tell after this verbal altercation he was a bit distant, fyi)

    And he tells me how what I "jokingly" said was not funny, and was in fact a threat, one in which lends for a lack of trust in me and a distancing in the relationship.

    At first, I was like, WTF!?!!?



    As I pleaded to him, "you couldn't tell I was absolutely JOKING!?!??!"

    Because, I was joking. :/

    Taunting, in a way, but not mean-spirited at all!!!

    But after some thought, I could understand his point, it was both a joke and a threat, and threatening your boyfriend, especially your INTJ boyfriend, even jokingly, that you are going to leave him, when you don't mean it, is a definite NONO!!!

    When he told me that my saying those things made him lose trust in me... :sad:

    If only he knew just how freakin' down I am for him, and if anything, my threat was a response to his response to the misbegotten burrito incident, which he fully understood.

    So, very long story short, trust is a HUGE thing/issue with INTJs, methinks.

    And, that's fair, because the more you trust someone the more comfortable you feel, the more safe.

    We ended the discussion on a positive note, though.

    INTJs + ENFPs = Incredapowers of discussion!!!

    We discuss things through, without ego, concede and apologize when we're sincerely wrong, and then, of course....

    Make up.



    And when we make up we become even closer, in an intimate way, wow, which is fucking awesome.

    (Like, serious soul connecting embraces/looks/kisses)

    Hahahaha, and there is always phenomenal make-up sex, too!
