    This topic has been ridiculously well covered in other threads, but a great image to think of the difference between Ne and Ni (and probably even Se and Si) is that of a sphere.

    Ni is like the inner surface area of that sphere, focusing in on the central focal point.

    Ne is like that central focal point, looking out all over the place at the inner surface area of the sphere.

    As such, Ni is good at focusing; Ne is good at connecting disparate parts.

    The con for each is that Ni will tend to focus on its point in the "selfish" manner of an introverted function, while Ne will jump from one topic to the next without necessarily coming to any resolution on any one of them (and possibly not seeing the thing as a whole).

    Hence, Ni people are often accused of tunnel-vision, while Ne people are accused of not being able to focus.

    Both accusations are true to some extent, varying by degree from individual to individual.

    No. Listen.

    I'd already admitted that I'm probably a T indeed. I said that my lack of eloquence was one of the reasons I thought I was an F. Past tense!

    And in response to the "lack of focus" comment, unfortunately that's true for me. I can focus intensely on something, but once I get even slightly bored, I get distracted and leave Original Something behind.

    I don't even think I'd normally have the attention span to follow my own thread right now if I wasn't stuck home sick from the flu. I'd be out doing stuff. Sick of being sick during the weekend. :-/

    LOL, I just thought that you thought you were F because you voted yourself as an ENFP (it was probably a joke, then?).

    No, I was trying to discourage the "sheep" mentality from any future voters. If everyone sees that the vote is 100% T, they're going to automatically pick that without thinking about it carefully.

    Though I think it backfired since I stupidly set it to see who voted what. :steam:

    And everyone voted for T anyway, cuz without a doubt you're a T.

    FYI, my two cents on this whole thing:

    You seem to have had a recent experience that very acutely affected your F function.

    This has made you question whether you're actually an F.

    This is based on a poor understanding of MBTI, as Ts do indeed have feelings to.

    What you felt was your tertiary Fe, which, at your age, should be budding nicely right about now.

    That is all... Realize: Ts have F too; it just comes after T.
