Alright, I'm probably getting myself into a mess by asking, but frankly I'm curious. I had an hour long debate with my brother tonight on whether he was an NTP or NTJ (He believes he's "a natural INTP but a forced INTJ"... which doesn't make sense to me based on function order). To me, everything he does implies Ne + Ti, especially Ne, but as he's not very familiar with function types,so he simply says he's borderline J/P. Anyways, I say Ne because he has oodles of fun making goofy videos and seeing random connections between things, and he gets a lot of people involved when doing so. He's a resident right now, and got a bunch of other residents to make a trailer for a retreat coming up, using a soundtrack from a trailer for The Dark Knight, Joker dialogue and all. At the end of the video, he made a picture of an electrocardiogram shaped like the Nike symbol, saying "Just Dx it." He is -always- thinking of different meanings of things. He said that he has this blue and pink tie, and to him, that represents a boy and a girl for his son and daughter. So anyways, I realize this sounds like it should go under "What's my type," but I figured I rather have more clarity on how each of you uses Ni and/or Ne. How often do you use your shadow N function, if at all? How do you use it? Are INTJs capable of this seemingly Ne-brainstorming, or am I confusing Ni/Ne?
