I used to do this with people, but I had to be careful as it was way to easy to do the Ne-paranoia thing and end up coming to the worst conclusion of what others thought about me. Total paranoia.
I would say my better examples of the Ne patterns be ignored tend to be in my workplace. I see a pattern. I try and tell someone about the pattern. They ignore me. They faceplant. Rinse and repeat. I usually note these folks are not really seeing the big picture.
My one strength is troubleshooting though, as I take this weird "wack-a-mole" gut feeling approach to problems and I often end up correct. I cant even say why. I hear an entire problem described vaguely and I just wrap structure around it, and then go "oh that's the problem". Funny enough, several of my research advisers were INTPs and over the years as I left their labs, each would note that my skill seemed to be able to get to the gist, the underlying pivot point of a problem and figure out a solution. I could just figure out the particular breaking point that really mattered, and ignore all the other possiblities or layers of issues. (I did not get complimented on my attention to detail or my research endurance or publication record )
So whenever I start something new, I always have to deal with kind of knowing what the right answer is, due to the intuition, but not having anyone actually listen to me. It get sold, but after a bit they start to listen.
Sometimes it does put together patterns that make me anxious though. I can tell when a pattern is complete but needs data verses a pattern which is very sketchy.
People patterns-they just seem obvious, although i dont do motives so much. People mostly do what you expect them to do.
