    I would say your best bet as an ISTJ trying to do creative work is to use Te to do it. Learn as much as you can about a given system or concept, and then see if you can spot any flaws that you can improve. If you wanna tap into your inner Ne, what you need to do is open your mind to what may seem fantastic or unrealistic, much like Nebbykoo just mentioned.

    A fun Ne exercise I like to do is drawing parallels between disparate fictional characters whose personalities are similar. A good example of this in action can be found here.

    Yeah this.

    And start meditating more often.

    The more we mature, that is as the more our functions develop when we tap into other functions that are less defined. The applied experiences are then brought forward, which means that over time your going to express intuitively, your heart demands it.

    Lao,

    I think what you really want to do is learn to think differently. Part of that will require you to jettison some of the cognitive structures that define your current modes of thought; for one, stop considering yourself as a type. Everytime you say 'I'm an ISTJ, and ISTJ's <INSERT STEREOTYPICAL BEHAVIOR HERE>', you limit what you believe is possible, and that intention will color your results. Just because you haven't done something before, doesn't mean that you can't do it!

    I'm guessing you're probably not ISTJ. Either that, or you've entered the phase of "Inferior Intrigue", which is quite temporary and intermittent. EDIT: and normal but this doesn't seem to be the case.

    My sister(ISFJ) is an example. She likes to deal in the abstract but never to this degree of actually pursuing the "potential of preference". If you are ISTJ, it is unnatural that you are behaving this way, it is also destructive. The primary question then centers on type verification. And behind that, a psychological unhealthy imbalance.

    I've been thinking about that... I think you might be right. I've also had some personal problems in the past. I think these problems developed me into a person who liked to stick with structure and the familiar and the concrete and not think in the abstract... Well, I will ponder these things a little bit more and maybe come back to you. Thank you for your replies...

    That's... the most fucking retarded thing I've heard on this site (and that's saying something). There's not only nothing wrong with exploring other functions, but exploring the inferior is, according to theory, a natural part of our development.

    It is, but I'm thinking this is entirely something else.
