    I really don't know I am willing to be wrong or right or both

    and do you find yourself to be more "introverted" than the average extrovert?

    Oh and i tagged my friend's list because it was easier than thinking of every Ne dom on the forum. so stop asking why you're tagged if you're not Ne dom
    That was my experience.

    Like Kullervo, I hum to myself a lot, and I also talk to myself.

    Both of my children are high Ne, and while it was rather difficult at times when they were very young, it's getting easier and frankly more entertaining as they develop into themselves. They are going on 7 and 9, and I truly think they are some of the most creative individuals I've ever known. My son (soon to be 7) is the most hilarious person, young or old, that I know - it's quite impressive, really, and also highly curious and intelligent. My daughter (soon to be 9) is fiery as all hell, but one of the most caring people I know and so expressive and artistic.

    I had no support or outlets for expression as a child, and I think it affected my ability to have a stable sense of self. I want to save my children from that pain to whatever extent I can.

    They didn't, they didn't even notice. That's why I have an avoidant personality. Wahh wahhh.

    I received some of both honestly.

    My parents were always a bit puzzled and flabbergasted with me to tell the truth. But they never discouraged me from being myself and they always saw the good qualities I brought and believed in me when very few other people did.

    Other adults often thought I was very bright and intelligent. I attribute it to being an only child, but I was much better at talking to grown ups than other kids. Some adults seemed to think I was an absolute horrible nutcase, but I think most found me cute and amusing at the very least.

    Looking back, I really intimidated my peers with my Ne. Some of them did still like me as I was though, and I had friends. But I had trouble managing social navigation and was rejected and abandoned by the people I considered friends so many times that I became closed off.

    I would say I am rather introverted for an extrovert. When I've asked the people I know well, it seems to be nearly a half and half split between what people guess I am. I do spend quite a bit of time alone, but I attribute that to my lifelong, voracious reading habits and prioritization of my work and education (I often find I work best when alone since there are less human distractions around).

    Having Ne is cool the problem is being bored by everything ... Basically my is life is finding ways to mantain My Ne Happy .
    Even things that i enjoy tend to get bored until i know other things.

    Actually getting the "Ne adrenaline rush" become harder and harder with more age and knowledge.

    I think the reason that Ne dominants are the most "introverted extrovert" is because intuition, even in its objective form, is hard to see as being "external". You might think of an Ne dominant as being typically in their head, but it's that they're seeing the abstract features of the environment. So the problem is a tendency to not associate intuition with the environment.

    Though, you are right to an extent in that Ne is probably also the extroverted function which is most likely to be invalidated by the environment, due to the way in which society tends to place emphasis on the concrete over the abstract, except in certain areas.

    My Ne manifested very early and most people were encouraging. The adults in my life were great about it. It's always nice to be told that you're creative, bright and funny.
    But after I got bullied I began to think that people would find my 'real personality' too weird. I became very shy and concealed the Ne from everyone except trusted people. (In retrospect I think the bullies were actually jealous about the initial popularity that Ne gave me. Counter-intuitive, huh?)
    In the past few years I've learned that most people do actually like my genuine self, so it's fine.

    I'm not certain for being an Ne dom, but I'm quite certain it exists within my stack (somewhere)....Regarding I/E, I actually become very extroverted when spurting out humor, which mainly consists of word-play/puns and hypothetical situations. Yet when I delve deep into a problem and use creativity to devise a Novel solution, I am very introverted. I created multiple new theorems in the Mathematics department for fun, however, most (if not all) relations were already discovered. I'll have thoughts/questions randomly pop up within my mind, then analyze it depending on context. I also enjoy creating my own philosophical viewpoints/quotes, pondering about future scenarios (using past patterns), and even writing poetry...So, when Ti is coupled with Ne, introversion may tend to follow whereas if Ne is coupled with Fe (possibly with humor), then extroversion follows.

    When I was a kid, I would annoy my family by asking a stream of continuous "why" questions. At my previous jobs, I was constantly criticized for my lack of attention to detail, mainly because I enjoyed sharing my thoughts/ideas once I had a knowledge base to derive new relations. I enjoy connecting with people (Fe) to gain further understanding in regards to questions, and expounding my own viewpoints in depth (Ti).
