    Been reading my mind?

    I find if I leave it alone for a bit, sometimes, all of a sudden (and when I'm not even conscious of thinking of it) a fully-formed finished image will pop into my mind of what I want it to look like, and I use that for inspiration.
    Totally! If I cant think of how to do something at that moment I just ignore it (...or get pissed off, one or the other ) and then come back and think "EUREKA!"

    We are the Knights who Say "Ni."
    Dont even get me started on that movie.
    Actually, I find Se the function related to spontaneity, not Ni. When I'm envisioning how something could be, I'm not interacting with what's happening at the moment. I'm purposely mentally detaching myself. Or maybe I misunderstood you -- you're saying we use it in tandem with Se in the present moment to change something about real life, right here and now? I can see how it could work that way as long as it works together with Se, and Se is the more dominant function.
    I find that 99% of my humor comes from weird ideas that pop in my head from what happened now, leading to a LOT of one-liners. I don't think I can really use Ni without Se. Well, my planning is pretty quick 'Okay the TV wont fit, so lets flip stuff around' - I don't usually find the most efficient way the first time (Or second).

    Another with tertiary Ni, since its more spontaneous since it supports Se, it leads to sudden insight (Like when I play Halo 3 with friends, I suddenly learn to step back and shoot the Assault Rifle instead of try and hit them again. And it works!). Its a short-range planning, more shotgun than tripmine (Where you need to use strategy to lay down)

    My tertiary seems to represent my imagination.

    Please extrapolate on that statement.

    Dost thou mean that things in the head are imaginary? Well of course they are!

    Why you had to add srrnub, I must guess it was a form of elitist behavior associated with Highschool jocks, Lawyers, ESTPs and my little brother.

    Now do you want to associate with people like my little brother!?

    If your brother doesn't believe that tertiary functions exist, then I'd love to meet him.

    I don't think he knows what MBTI is. So I guess he does not believe Tertiary functions exist... OR he just doesn't care and thus that is all void.

    You still need to extrapolate.

    well..if this is relavant to this thread, I'd like to add that my best friend is an ESFP and even though he isn't formiliar with the MBTI, he always tells me that I bring out the true nature of him, and that he's always himself around me..which I have sort of taken as dominant SP showing..if you know at all what I'm talking about.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
