    imo, i know Ni is really hard to explain, but you have to give others some time to understand. they can't trust your foresight right away when all the things their Perceiving is telling them point to something totally different, and you can't explain how you know what you know. give them time. they'll see that you are right, and begin to place trust in you, and to listen to you. Fe... Fe can be a wonderful warm embracing thing, or it can cut others off way prematurely. and Ti is its partner in crime... it makes you think you're alone in being able to understand. you're not. it's just hard for others, for me, to trust you at first when i can't understand your reasoning and you can't explain your reasoning. Te looks for evidence, after all, and Ne needs external abstract data to work with. i'm sort of Ni-blind. i've had to go through this in relationships with NFJs before. i know it means putting yourself at risk of feeling socially rejected, but try to be patient with those of us who do not see as you do. if it's a Fi type you're dealing with, they're not going to reject you just because you seem a little weird

    Thanks for your reply, I felt this post was too personal and moved it to my blog.
    But I guess any loop is probably yucky.

    OH.. my cycle stops when I start trusting people.

    actually, the Ne-Te loop can be brutally fun alternating between coming to a lot of conclusions, making quick but effective plans, acting decisively and socially bitch slapping anyone who gets in your way.

    Extroverted "loops" always sound more appealing to me; at the very least, they seem to DO something, whereas introverts sort of withdraw & lose their minds. But then, you know, I'm an introvert & using an extroverted thought process breaks these cycles & is healthy for me...

    I actually fall into the Fi-Si loop much more frequently than the Ne-Te loop. makes me think I might be INFP.

    I have both.

    In fact, I'm so conscious of my Si I like...double confirmed, hey I'm not an INFP right? But several people who are into function theory say they see more Te in me than Si.

    But I have Ne/Te and Fi/Si loops.

    I can either be really productive or really scary in an Ne/Te loop. It's no longer a place I strive to live, but I did in the past.

    My very best friend is INFJ, where as I don't really click with the one INFP I know... My INFJ friend and I are really opposite in some ways, but not the most important ones. She's a stickler for punctuality, is very quiet, likes watching but not participating in social interactions, and spends a lo of time holed up in her room by choice. I'm forever late, often loud, want t be a part of things, and am generally over-the-top.

    However, we get along better than we do with most other people. I find her reserve amusing, she views my bouncy-ball default state as endearing, and we laugh about our differences. The only major spat we've had was a value-clash debate, and sometimes I feel a little hurt by her occasional aloofness. I find that I can better handle I/E P/J clashes with Ns than Ss because we're similar in the most noticeable (NF) ways. Ie, our focus on people and willingness to accept other, different people and ideas.

    i fall into Fi/Si looping more often too. i assume because as a J function, Fi tends to harp upon things, where Ne does not. so there's not much of a reason to get sucked into a Ne/Te loop, while a Fi/Si depression/nostalgia loop is easier.

    Ne/Te loop is like hypomania, lol. and it's great until you're over with it and you're like, damn, i might have hurt people.
