    @Stansmith, I'm not sure what your story indicates about your cognition, actually, if anything.

    I can speak as an NP about my own Ne-usage but that's about it. Give it some observation, and tell me if you can observe something similar going on in your thought processes (though I don't claim to speak for all Ne-users):



    Anyway, sorry I haven't been able to analyze your post in depth. I think you're probably the best person to decide which function it most accurately reflects, once you've gotten a firm hand on the ins and outs of all the functions. I hope my examples might help you determine what role, if any, Ne plays for you. You may have to really observe yourself to see what's going on, though.

    Good luck!

    The incident in the OP describes ISFP thinking in a nutshell.

    Se is also about possibilities. But Se possibilities are concrete, and in the OP, they are concretely about possibilities for pleasure (cocaine or heroine use); with Fi coming out in terms of wanting to help the individual. Se and Fi in the Op are torn between two possibilities: wanting to help and wanting to leave well enough alone.

    I told my ISFP wife this story, and she wasn't interested in your Ne or whatever; she started going on about what the guy might have been doing in there.

    That's a good point. The ISFPs that I know aren't sixes. It makes for a different sort of Se/Ni.

    @Stansmith, sounds like full-on 6 to me. I do this sort of "running down a situation" thing all the time. It makes Ne + 6 seem a little more Ni, I think. But it's not Ni for me because it's not well-oriented in probability. Exactly which imagined situation I "run down" has more to do with what's been going on externally that I put together than a sense of what's most likely to happen. And my sense of what's most likely to happen is borne from Si experiential data, not Ni inference.

    Sounds like you use Ni and it was especially strong that day.

    That's interesting! You're feeling more Ni than Ne?

    Yes, especially in cases like what @Stansmith described. I do, however, seek newness and dislike drudgery like Ne, though. I also have a messy room and generally am disorganized. I always related to P more than J…but isn't Ni a perceiving function?
