    I have an example that I think demonstrates Ni.

    (From a first year biology lecture, with 2 friends ENFP and ESFP).

    Lecturer: So, in this isolated population on the mountains, geneticists discovered that there was a higher proportion of the albino gene than in other general populations. They were very puzzled, as they thought that the healthier, stronger males with more exposure to the sun would represent a better mating choice. In this population, the sexes have very defined roles. The males would go out into the field during the day and work on their crops, the females would stay indoors and take care of the household.

    At this point, I started chuckling and ENFP and ESFP both looked at me like I was crazy.

    It took them till the lecturer finished the story to "get it".

    I think it illustrated the Ni - all the relevant facts clicked together, and the result (to me) was very obvious.

    Hm?
    hahaha! no luvvin for INTJs around these parts. I am currently hooked on the entp boys with thier F' me eyes. Just exploring though since they seem to lack follow through. can't rely on a P to get much done, eh?


    I dont know if I could do an INTJ long term. It would be fun and interesting but in a very lopsided father-daughter sort of way. Since I rebel endlessly against other's control, and INTJs want to, well dominate things, at least locally, it could lead to friction.

    I am actually most interested in an INFJ women I work with. Not to sleppe with silly, but just to study. I have INTJs practically falling from the sky in my line of work so you guys are a dime a dozen and thus worthy of condsideration as well.

    I don't! I'm perfectly happy without any of that N craziness. I don't give a crap what the forest symbolizes.

    Yeah, I think of Holy Grail whenever I see anyone put "Ne" or "Ni" on here.

    Ni is probably what makes me very, very impatient, as if I know how things are going to unfold already and so they should just hurry up and happen.

    But then I realize that things don't always turn out as planned and that I don't always correctly assess the "one true meaning" from an incomplete set of data in front of me.. so I rely on (a relatively weak) Ne to tell me what else could possibly be meant, then branching Ni to develop several contingency plans.

    Wow. You would never believe that I thought it had to do with lack of light in the cave or something... I don't even know where I got "cave" from either. My mind imagined a village of mountainous albino cave people. Yikes.
