    Default Ni not psychic? O rly?

    I read this somewhere:

    Ni -- Introverted Intuition (not Nickel, which I know is what you thought). Allows you to see ideas from different perspectives, as well as have unusual insights or hunches that are often useful. And for the last time, it does NOT make you psychic (normally).
    Why should Ni make you think you are psychic, and why isn't it?

    I realise this is a very open-ended question, but I often feel psychic, and sometimes I wonder if my chakras look big in something. It would be something of a loss to think that there is no Magick in the world!

    I think David Keirsey actually associates psychic with the NF Idealist way of thinking.

    Ni I believe to be more of a mode of perception than anything supernatural, a special kind of open-mindedness to extra-dimensional perspectives and contingent transformations.

    I would actually associate the INFJ personality type with psychic more than any other type, though I am sure other types are capable of achieving similar feats, even if it takes more effort for them to unlock the magic within.

    Personally, I believe in the inestimable power of the mind more than anything else, as pure thought always in my opinion triumps over the deep feelings felt within the psychic realm, the oracles thereby being in my eyes far inferior to the cosmologists, the former just thinking they know things, while the latter explores the full spectrum of the creation to bring forth its hidden treasures.

    Anyways, to some up what I was saying, I would rather be an omnipotent wizard than an empathic sage.

    For whatever it's worth, my mom was an ENFJ and thought she was psychic.

    No . . . really. I'm not joking on this one.

    I'm kind of a good guesser sometimes, but that's not the same as being psychic. Or at least I don't think so.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    It has to do with massive parallelistic undertakings of the mind.

    Ni doesn't make me psychic, but it can make me invisible which allows me to spy on people and pretend to be psychic, so that's pretty close.
