    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Perhaps the combination of introverted Feeling and childlike introverted Sensing is responsible for the silent pull of ENFPs to the wishes of parents, authority figures and friends. Or perhaps it's the predominance of indecisive intuition in combination with the ambiguity of secondary Fi and tertiary Te that induces these kind souls to capitulate even life-affecting decisions. Whatever the dynamic, ENFPs are strongly influenced by the opinions of their friends.

    Maybe that's what was being thought of regarding "submission"?
    After all, they are considered "cooperative" (do what's right) rather than "pragmatic" (do what works). It's when a value is violated that they go against authority.

    "ENFP's are strongly influenced by the opinions of their friends." That is probably a better way of saying it, than to say they "submit to authority". Ultimately every individual is different, but ENFP's tend to be countercultural in general, and that is why I wouldn't say that they tend to submit to authority.

    Hmm . . . I can see that, particularly the ENF part.

    Not sure if this is other people's experience too, but one thing I've noticed is that I feel like answers come to me, but from outside myself. I often get a feeling like I've been in the right place at the right time. I'll meet someone, have a conversation, see a poster on a wall, click the right link on a website, and some small, random piece of information will set off a chain that was just what I needed to get to the place my brain needed to go. If you read a lot of Virginia Woolf's essays they show this kind of thinking where seeing something can remind you of something else and lead to all these new ideas. As opposed to Ni, which from how I've heard it described sounds like answers also come to them, but they'd feel like they came from inside. It sounds like ideas just "appear" to Ni, but Ne has to really look for them and form them from something else.
    I have a tendency to make associations that other people don't always understand at first. Or I'll say something and the other person will be surprised at the quick change of conversation topic. But the conversation seemed to flow for me, it's just that a couple of skips were made in my head, that looked like a huge jump to the person outside. Coz they can't hear my thoughts. Damn you non psychic people!!
    I tend to throw ideas out there, I guess that's brainstorming. I get annoyed sometimes when I make some observation or mention an idea I had, and the other person acts like I believe it's true. And starts picking it apart with an attitude like I'm an idiot for even mentioning it. IT WAS JUST AN IDEA!!!

    Also that the "real world" is coloured by imagination. I don't see sunlight coming through the window like I guess an Se would. I see golden coins tumbling through and bouncing along the floor. It reminds me of synaesthesia. Or I might think of the sun and how it's always there and then that will lead onto something else.
    I think Ne tends to be kind of playful and silly too. I like pretending I'm a fairy and running around being stupid.
    I'm not sure if this is true but possibly preferring activities to relationships. Like you might prefer to go to an amusement park with someone, than sit in a coffee shop making chitchat. You're still together, but one is more social. But I might be confusing that with another preference.

    The fact that my posts are so long might have to do with Ne. Too many ideas and too many ways to describe them. Not enough filtering. Saying the same thing over and over again in different ways. sigh

    Ne is my entire being. to me, it's the conclusions that i draw based on what other would think of as too little evidence. it's the things that other people don't notice. it's fast and fluent. like noticing all the ways out when you're looking for an escape route while still running.

    but honestly, i think there's more to Ne than just what is defined. i've witnessed too many things to be proven otherwise. i've been complimented and accused for the use of NLP, which i didn't even know about until someone complimented me for it. i think a strong Ne has a way of... bending the rules. i cannot say anymore; i wouldn't want to jeopardize my existence on these forums.

    Explain to me the blueprint to your Ne, formulate the dynamics, analyze the facts and exaggerate to get your audiences attention, boom baby, formulate your Ne !
