    You unconsciously see what the thing does, but know it more intimately than that.

That's Ni, you know what's inside the object and it blooms out to its aspects.

    I'm sorry but I can't describe it better than that (You could look it up if you want to)
    Oh ok, so its like seeing the nuances of the object even its not directly noticeable, it's still there? Is it also kind of like knowing what a person is feeling but they don't say it directly?

    I suppose that fits. Introverted Perceiving functions have a bias when viewing reality, so an object could internally be different to each person. Si is based off of past experiences while Ni is based off of all knowledge gathered and manipulated.

    Is it also kind of like knowing what a person is feeling but they don't say it directly?
    I think that is an Fe/Ni quirk, Fe can sense what a person feels to a certain extent, while Ni knows the person/personality in their own way, making the knowledge of the person's feelings more certain in the person's mind.

    Me too! I couldn't locate the bathroom in my studio apartment with a roadmap, but I have a knack for time.

    Urgh! That's so true - it makes me a good scientist, but I can be over-cautious sometimes. I've learned to use auxiliary Fe to overcome the tertiary Ti "analysis paralysis" by basically asking a colleague for a second opinion when I get stuck.

    - You know you're an INFJ is this makes you wonder: "Doesn't everyone have that?"
    - You know you're an INFJ when you get a feeling of people you're watching from distance. (like spotting someone randomly)

    +1, I do this all the time. I WILL ask for directions if I'm lost

    I'm constantly like this at work, when trying to make assessments concerning quality of our products. My supervisors always get annoyed with me over this. Ironic I know.
