    Just wanted to add...with Ne, what matters most are the questions, not the answers.

    that said, I don't know what your type is.

    Developing our Inferior is actually necessary, but trying to lead a life that immensely relies on our Inferior is a separate endeavor. The rat shouldn't carry what an elephant must.

    It's an interesting idea but what kind of questions? All types?

    How far can N be improved?
    When you go crazy, you have improved it too far.

    I agree. But it's up to Lao to figure out when too much is too much and to figure out how unwilling to rely on his inferior he really is. He asked for help on how to do something and I think we ought to provide it to him.

    Since he is an ISTJ, I'm sure he will grow tired of this idea after a while.

    Yes. The way I see it Ne asks 20 questions to get to one answer. Si asks one or two and falls back on the answers that worked in the past, more often than not.

    Have you ever been overwhelmed with emotions at some point in your life? Anger, Sadness, Desperation, Loss, Grief, Excitement, Thrill, Satisfaction, etc?? Many things can cause these emotions: death, hurt, deception, betrayal.. the list goes on. If so, remember that small specific moment of losing control. (Not having the ability to be completely stable) I know you ISTj's are great with stress, but not 'inhuman'. Once you figure out what made you feel that way, explore the reasons. Something has to give you thrill? Over-indulge in it. Feel completely 'out of touch' with the practical, everyday structured routine. Lose yourself in the moment. I believe then, you will discover your iNtuition. I have a ISTj bf and the only time he's intuitive (from what I have seen) is when he thinks I'm gone. Now that's a negative example there are positive ones but the point is- the Specific Circumstance forced him out of his easy going practical world. And he was all emotion. When you are left with nothing, you still have your instincts.

    P.S. What does that have to do with your specific quest?

    It opens your mind for interpretation. You truly only block yourself, from looking into the unknown blindly. Let your subconscious travel and let the conscious mind rest.

    Peaceful places of solitude or with an Ne can relax your mind and guide you.

    I think anything can be improved. You might enver be a natural but you can make it easier for your mind to work in an N fashion.

    I have pretty much the reverse of your situation. I am a very strong intuitive and im great with the abstract but when it comes to anything sensor im just useless. I cant do math problems or visualize a map, or find my way around or out together anything.

    Over the years, i have very painfully worked on S type stuff by doing it, (very uncomfortably and reluctantly), and i know that it comes MUCH easier to me than it did a year ago. On the other hand, i am not a natural and am still much comfortable in the abstract, but at least i have a functioning use of it.

    That is interesting to read and hear. What type of S stuff have you been working on by the way? Also, wouldn't doing math problems or finding your way around a map have more to do with T rather than S?
