    FUNCTION SLUT!!
    I know, I'm terrible. My favourite is a Fi/Te threesome.
    I don't think of the functions by themselves, it's how they work together. I just treat them as metaphors for aspects of real cognitive processes. Not as real things in themselves.

    Yes. I think it is. Sounds somewhat like how I normally perceive reality.

    That's cool. I sometimes have these visions where I enter the muscle of the person I'm coaching and I can see how it is moving.

    Haha I still believe that! I have to watch sport live so I can yell at the screen and affect the result in my favour. I'll just say that immature/undeveloped versions of all of the processes aren't very pretty.

    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.
    Fair enough.

    I used to be like that when I was younger too, though replace the sporting events with various forms of doom being averted (like the death of various family members or myself). Sometimes I even thought I heard voices telling me "Do X before [time], or Y will happen." Frighteningly, it was correct that X was the best course of action often enough to keep me from completely ignoring it. Most often "Y" was "you will die," "your soul will be devoured," "they'll turn into zombies," or "they will all die and you'll be alone." It was far more likely to be correct the few times "Y" was something more specific or likely.

    Eventually, I realized it was just a part of myself, and I could channel it's energy, look at the origin, get a feel for the validity of what was being said. After this happened, the voices stopped, and my sense of reality stabilized within a clearer Ni framework and baseline. I realized that I was simply delving beyond the surface of whatever I saw, and thus seeing and using parts of perceptions that weren't normally used.

    You're right about the assumptions, though. For all I know, I might be an ISFJ or an INFP. You might be an ENTJ. Who really knows? You're right, you may not need Ni at all. But all functions represent a part of self that some people ignore to their own detriment...

    Why do you hate Ni so much?
