    Sometimes Si types can see themselves as creative, as with the example of this ISTJ veterinarian who claimed that he invented a uterine pump for cows. But then he admitted that he didn't invent it, that these things had been around for a long time, and that he had only built his own version of one.

    One good way to understand Ni (or any function for that matter) is by friending people on Facebook, obviously the active ones in order to see what they post.

    I had friended an Ni for a long time but I finally got tired of his obtuseness and unfriended him. But during our time together I chatted him up quite a bit. This guy was not interested in psychology per se, in Jung, and didn't care for typology at all. So he was naive as to introverted intuition.

    He claimed on many occasions that nobody could understand him, and that he is unique. He would sometimes post pictures depicting himself as going his own way while the crowd went another way. For example:


    He posted prolifically but it was mostly mysticism. I never decided if he was INFJ or INTJ. (Probably INFJ.)

    His work consisted of leading a monastic lifestyle on a communal farm in upstate New York. He posted a lot of stuff about naturopathy.

    So if you want to know what Ni is - it's that guy, or that gurl, or whatever examples you can think of. But not in a stereotyping way, it's in the mode of living and the belief system.

    Read what uumlau wrote...alot of it not even in this thread. Its not easy to quote on phone. His beliefs are Ni, his words dont always say what Ni is from a definition, etc. But the underlying data stems from Ni.

    For example i know an Ni who went through her husbands email...she is technology iliterate and found porn emails everywhere. She ripped into him because she didnt know about spam and he must have been requesting them. Her Ni was so confident its a stromg belief that is FACT...unshaken until proven by someone else in this case.

    Intuition...should be used to dig in further, not speak truth. And NO mad scientists shit...let it go. Its not healthy. Dig, but dont become MAD.

    How is that an example of Ni? Women always go through a guy's phone. That's female nature.

    My point is that there are no examples. There are explanations, but no examples.

    Well, it isn't as if there are any examples along the lines of, "I had my consciousness plugged into the mind of an Ni dom, and you'll be amazed at what happens next!"

    I mean seriously, we're trying to communicate across cognitive differences. The BEST you can hope for is a "good description" to spot Ni types and a general idea of what they're good at and a vague idea of how they do it.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    You're Ni-dominant, apparently. If you want to explain Ni, then describe yourself.

    Now that I've had some time to ponder your example above, waiting for people to stop debating and then jumping in with a thread-puller is a great example of Ni applied in a Te kind of way. Ni within the mind operates by sudden insight, but it often has to wait for the mental hubbub to calm down first and then brings order out of chaos (Te). It operates the same way outside the mind.

    For you, there is no examples. Your minds current position will not see them. Had nothing to do with "women looking through (insert item)". Nor is any one example gonna be 100 percent ONLY possible through a Dom Ni user or a user with Ni in MBTI 4 function stack. Until you accept this you will fight every example due to your mindset, not due to the example. Again...i give up, its hopeless with your mindset at this time. May change in the future...who knows...even after this post, but my guess is someone else is gonna have to explain it in words that you can see better.
