    I alternate between Si and Ne viewpoints in my daily life. So I'd say it's not horribly weak, but not great either.
    Strychnine is all-natural,
    So strychnine is all good.
    It's Godly and righteous,
    So eat it, you should.
    Who are you to refuse nature's will?

    A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.

But when it comes to working on my house, finding a new job, or any large monetary or life investment- It wreaks havoc on me.
    With Ne being my primary method of "extroverting" and communicating with others, this is a very interesting thread to read. It always seemed to me that SJ's saw Ne as this strange function that they wanted nothing to do with. But, here you guys are discussing it - and your struggles with it. I wish you guys would use it MORE! Lol.

    IZthe411, just out of curiosity, how do you feel that Ne "wreaks havoc on you"? I mean, when it comes to finding a new job or working on your house, or something big like that, what is the process like for the SJ? And how does Si work in a situation like that? Is it like, "Last time I needed a new job, I went on 5 interviews before I landed a job, so I should be prepared to do the same thing this time." I mean, I don't even see how Si would apply to something like "finding a new job" or "fixing your house". Help me out!

    Another thing about Ne is that it's very adept at making good, efficient decisions without any prior planning and to still stay calm. One thing I see with a lot of the SJ's I know is that when something unforseen happens, they kind of freak out and stress hard. When you're using Ne and something like this happens, you can just say, "Oh that's cool, no big deal, we'll just have to change our plans. Hmmm, how can we do this? Oh, I have an idea, how about we do this instead! Yeah, that'll work!" And as you practice this, you'll see that there really is no need to stress out. Just use your creativity to come up with a Plan B (or Plan C, D, E) and just keep chillin'. No need to stress. I'm not preaching to you guys, just hopefully pointing out how Ne can maybe relieve some stress in certain situations.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    "Intuitive people process data through impressions, possibilities and meanings, so the Extraverted Intuition function allows a person to see different paths or ways.

    How about symbolism? Is that intuitive?

    I see the symbolism .. It's like life is giving me a heads up

    so the Extraverted Intuition function allows a person to see different paths or ways.
    I see different ways when discussing ideas with others .. But struggle to apply it to myself especially when emotional.

    I am currently trying to persuade my ESFJ mother to find other ways of looking at things before her marriage falls apart .. Stubborn maul.

    Conclusion - Maybe i'm kidding myself and have no Ne at all.

    It begins with N .. I'll accept that

    Ah, sarcasm. I'm not sure if that's Ne humor or not, but I think it is. My ENTP friend jokes like this all the time.

    Me: May I borrow your pen?
    Her: No. Never. I would never ever lend you a pen.
    Me: ...
    Her: ... *hands me the pen*
    Both of us:


    Also, dunno if this is Ne, but it was in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World", and it was my favorite part (and my ENTP friend's favorite part, too). Todd Ingram trying to be intimidating, and threatening Scott with certain death (turning him to dust):

    Scott: I dislike you.
    Todd: Tell it to the cleaning lady on Monday.
    Scott: What?
    Todd: Because you'll be dust by Monday... because you'll be pulverized in two seconds. The cleaning lady? She cleans up... dust. She dusts.
    Scott: So, what's on Monday?
    *pause*
    Todd: 'Cause... it's Friday now, and she has the weekends off, so... Monday, right?

    This is my ENTP boy's type of humor too. Spot on.

    Except I like to play along or say something in reply.
