    Yes, it is hard to tell one from the other.

    Ni forsees something, "how it will be", looking for patterns and connections; while Ne inferes something, "how it could be", looking for possibilities (which drive me crazy).

    Ni is what comes natural to me, because I see it as a function more focused on reality, since it fills the blanks of any speech or text. I can define my Ni usage as my ability to say "I just know", when asked how did I know that something was going to happen, or that someone is doing something behind my back.

    Using Ne (always wondering, doing brainstorming inside of my own mind) can drive me crazy.

    My Ne is sortof weak. I adapt based more on prior experiences rather than intuiting changes. Like, my experience just tells me, "In the past, focusing too much hurt me, so let's attempt to be more open minded." Ne for me is more of just finding random connections between things.

    I'm constantly on the internet browsing forums that are stocked full of NTs, but most so INTJs and INTPs. I get my daily share of Ni a lot, and it's been like that for most of my life. However, the Ni I get experience with is focused more on technical things, which I'm more accepting of. Ni in conjuction with something touchy-feely will get lost on me. Like, for example, a guy that's likely an xNTJ made a random joke on a board I was just reading:

    Person A: Uh, Bushido's the Samurai code, thr.

    Person B: George W. Bushido: Samurai President.

    That's Ni humor. I loved it, though haha. My own humor is more focused on Si, which focuses on hypocrisies. Hypocrisies are funny to me, but there's a lot more to my humor. It's all over the place.

    I think of Family Guy as Ne humor. Not sure if you see the show, but they take circumstances and apply crazy outcomes to them.

    That's how I am too, actually! Also, when I have to be creative under pressure, my Ne shows up at the last possible second. It's usually like "OH GOD WHAT DO I DO OH GOD OH GOD oh I've got it now! Okay!"

    Also, I kind of go ENFP when I "geek out". I go off on huge Ne rants when I'm excited: "Dude dude dude did you see that movie yet it is so cool it's based on a movie from 1975 only they changed the character lineup and had a guy character played by a girl and all the actors are really good and it is so funny and you've got to watch it!!!"

    You can't command a Ne.
    If someone tells me "be creative!" suddenly I can't think of anything any more. Brainstorming? Idea-gathering? I'm silent and grumpy, and people ask me why I never have any ideas. I hate those brainstorm sessions. They only make you lose time.
    Doing anything BUT trying to be creative? It's the Great Idea Flood in my head.

    Several times I solved a problem through Ne without realizing I did. If my husband didn't tell me, I'd never know my solution was something original or weird.

    I've seen it but not a huge fan.

    Not sure if this is Ni or Ne, but last night while I was waiting on tables, I went up to a couple, asked if they had decided on their food yet, and the man said, "You stepped in what?", I instantly knew it was a joke, and just replied, "I stepped in some manure. You know there's a herd of cows in the back."

    I love Ne humor. My Ne comes out this way or during playtime. Otherwise it's pretty weak in serious situations.
