It feels like what I was meant to be doing. Everything else is just going through the motions.

    The sort of nitpicky thinking Labyrinthine describes, IME, is exactly that: thinking, or at least using a judgment function, especially Je. It is using Je without much involvement of Ni that I find tiring, especially anything that is protracted, requires attention to detail, and is not interesting. That stuff makes me want to tear my hair out.

    Nice to hear two other INTJs express the same thing I feel

    No, "too much" intuition does not exhaust me.

    Too much Je, without enough Ni input does; as does too much Pe.

    Ni to me is like being in the water, and I'm naturally a dolphin.

    But for most of the day I have to walk around on land.

    And I'm constantly wanting to go back to the water.

    I thought a little more about it, and retract my earlier post about it not being noticeable.

    Ni is soul-suckingly exhausting and stressful for me. It's very noticeable. I even avoid it.

    Too much sensing exhausts me
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Using intuition in itself is energizing for me...it's trying to organize it and express it that can be exhausting.

    Sometimes I have multiple ideas at once and want to say everything but I don't know where to start, so I don't really say anything.

    Largely depends on the person and orientation.

    Ni often energizes me. When I interact with Ni dom/aux people, they nudge me to reexamine my judgments. The consequent uncertainty leads me to make preparations for a wider variety of outcomes. In the end, I wind up more forward thinking, adaptable, and active.

    Depends solely on situation. My dom Ni boss drives me nuts. Dom Ne GF and dom Ni(intj) dad don't bother me at all. I work good side by side with dominant intuitive...not one that is a boss/manager. To disconnected from present reality. It's like...yeah you know some reality, but that isn't all that applicable here in this situation. Not stupid, just not very applicable. Dom Ni (infj) friend doesn't phase me much either. I have found with dom Ni you just have to appease their perception of possibility to get along well...to stubborn in regard to not appeasing their perception and all help breaks loose. Why me and my boss butt heads...because at work it's about functional and correct, with appeasement ranking pretty low. Outside of work though where it's more an open give and take without any predefined hierarchy that people follow or expectations that have to be met all is good.

    In the sense that I overthink things constantly, yes. Oftentimes I wish I could just shut my mind off for a while and simply exist in the unfiltered present moment. I guess that's the nature of inferior Se; you desire what is hardest for you to obtain. And at times I've turned to alcohol and other indulgences to force it to emerge, so I certainly fit that pattern.

    Then again, it is all a trade-off. Strong intuition is of course not without its benefits. And I am happiest and most energized in the moments I am free to indulge fully in it without feeling any pressure to deal with "the real world." The problem is those moments are pretty rare. So I wouldn't say it's the intuition itself that exhausts me so much as the fact that I am dominated by intuition in a world created by and for sensing types, which forces me to adapt in ways that often take a lot of energy out of me.

    Sometimes it happens to me, that I get too lost in it and then it's difficult for me to get back down to the physical world. It can be difficult to to balance the sense of physical stillness then. Sometimes I just need something or someone to ground me and remind me that the real world is just as important as my abstract thought.

    No. I remember I studied the MBTI and Jung' Psychological types, until 3 am and felt no exhaustion and becoming amazed of myself. I think it is one of The way to test you are intuitive or sensor is to try studying something theoretical and see how long will you last.
