    Here I thought I'd be reading something funny.
    ESTP - Definition: "Love" is making a shot to the knees of a target a 120 km away, with an aratech sniper rifle and tri-light scope.

    You pay a price for banishing Ni... mediocrity. Utter mediocrity.

    To any SPs that dislike Ni:

    I know what you're going through, believe it or not. It was hard for me to admit that I needed Se in my life at first, too. I saw it as useless, a weakness. Because it's pretty much everything I'm not, consciously. Eventually, I realized I was basically limiting my potential and binding myself by not having my mind open to it. In a sense, I was starving myself of fuel.

    Why? Because Ni and Se FEED each other. One will stagnate and be quite limited without the other. You don't have to believe me. If you're content without it, you probably haven't reached the critical point yet. But if you don't stop pushing it away, you're eventually going to start feeling it. I can guarantee you that.

    Ni is not reality. Se is not reality. But together, I think they're a lot closer to reality than they are alone. If you want to live in a fantasy world where nothing is going on under the surface, there are no archetypes, hidden meanings or alternate views, and everything is always exactly what it appears to be, go right ahead and reject Ni. But that's all it will be... a fantasy world. You know, the thing you probably hated so much that it made you reject Ni in the first place? Rejecting Ni only traps you inside an impoverished version of it.

    When you recognize that for yourself, I have a feeling you'll embrace it. One suggestion I'd give you, is to meditate on Chinese handcuffs. What happens when you struggle to free yourself from them? What is the real solution? How might this situation be similar to your struggle with Ni?

    /bored metacognitive musing

    Yes, I know you don't really want to take the time to read that.
    Nah. You've got it backwards. I have developed by getting rid of assumptive and paranoid stuff, and it has not made me "less of an SP." If anything, the opposite is true, because I am more content to enjoy living in the moments I have than ever before. The "Si" is not shadowy at all. It's part of the contentment. I have learned to stop beating myself up over past mistakes and learn to laugh at the stories of my past and use them to help entertain in the present.

    So, your assumptions are incorrect. And that's another difference between us - I don't make those kind of assumptions about other people's brains. I don't assume I know how someone's brain is supposed to develop. I am content with not knowing that information, and feel no need to make something up (or follow along with something that someone else made up) to fill that void. The whole function thing can be used as a label to describe certain behaviors, but using it as a premise for presuming to know what is inside someone (or what should be) is a useless exercise. I can't stop you from doing it of course, but you have posted on here several times about confusion you've had about several issues, and my speculation (not assumption) is that this sort of "musing" in circles about function stuff is part of the source of that confusion.

    Of course "Se" is not reality. "Se" is a label for a perception method. Reality is there whether any of us choose to perceive it or not.

    Thanks for the amateur psychological diagnosis, though. I am afraid I'm going to have to fire you, however. Good thing this session was a free trial.

    How would you further describe Ni (if it were to appear in yourself)? Just curious.

    When I was younger, I used to be paranoid about people talking about me when I wasn't there. I also used to think the outcomes of sporting events on tv could be affected by what I did that day or what I was wearing while watching the game. I dunno whether those qualify or not. I'm tired of thinking about speculative mumbo jumbo. I'd rather think of myself as a whole person than as abstract parts.

    Eres un pocito loco, senor. Es muy fantastico estar loco. No es interesante estar normal.

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Sometimes I have visions of things that can't be seen. Flows of energy, molecular interactions (I'm a chemist), my internal energy (or lack thereof), my soul. I also will sometimes act intuitively on something with very little thought, because I've experienced it enough to inwardly know the "symptoms" before the effect is apparent.

    I don't know if this stuff is from Ni or not, but I would guess that it is.
