    Or maybe Ni is really that amazing, and you just have no idea.

    Among the thinking dominant types (ENTJ and INTP), more seem to place preference on having their auxiliary N function as their dominant.

    Among the intuitive dominant types (ENTP and INTJ), more seem to place preference on having the opposite intuitive function as their dominant.

    I <3 this poll. We need more NTs to answer!!
    Thank you, Tesla.

    You are certainly one of my favorite ENTPs.

    Can one of you more enlightened types explain to me exactly what Ni/Ne means? I know what the letters mean, I know the descriptions, but why are these things so awesome? I know when I'm using Ti to filter, or Fe to hug a friend, and I sort of get when I go inside for a while with Si and get my internal models right and remove inconsistencies, but I'm somewhat at a loss for what Ne does, especially versus Ni. </noob>
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    You'll hear different defs, but for me, metaphorically:

    Ne: Fireworks explosion going off, ideas shooting off in every direction and continuing to springboard outwards like a huge rapid web.

    Ni: Shuffling through various overlays/patterns that are laid over the situation to change the frame of reference. Also, you "see" things and know what the picture looks like, even if you can't see all the data, because you recognize the pattern... just like a "connect the dots." Seeing comes "all at once."

    In any case, both are ways of seeing... while T/F are ways of processing/evaluating what you see.

    I live in N in the world more than I live in T, although T is always running. N is my "possibility machine" and it gives me energy and drive to actually engage the world and try new things and connect with people; Ti without a Pe function to fuel it just sort of sits there and does nothing.

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

    You guys are the SJs of the NTs, to steal AJblaise's observation. Funny to see it actually play out.

    Ha!

    Funny coming from the INTP who couldn't respond to my earlier message.

    Perhaps what you fail to realize is that anyone who actually tastes Ni knows just how good it is.

    Don't be butt hurt that other NTs aren't envious of your dom...

    what does it taste like? the apple from the garden of eden?
    i doubt Ni is that awesome, its just another form of Ne.
    I mean how hard is it to think of abstract shit that no one can understand?

    Oh? I wasn't aware you wanted a response. And looking at it now, I don't really see a question, or anything really new, unless you wanted me to challenge something? Please let me know what part you want my thoughts on.

    And, I could care less if nobody else wanted my dominant function. It truly is a pain in the ass.

    What do you make of the fact ENTJs don't want any function besides the ones they already have? You're the one with the Ni. How is it that my one interpretation of the data, that ENTJs do not see the appeal of functions that they don't use because they are uninterested in an alternative method of worldview, is incorrect?

    This is a trick question by the way.

    Also, should I change my type? Maybe if I do that, it means I'm allowed to talk about whatever I'd like to talk about, without being invalidated because I do not hold an absolute frame of reference, in which to experience the world.
