Being misunderstood is not the key observation, and being misunderstood and regarded as irritating is rather different from being misunderstood and regarded as perceptive. ENxPs perceptions have a good deal in common with Si perceptions: even as Ne ventures abroad exploring ideas from all sources, the ideas are eventually anchored in common Si foundations. Ni isn't as mystical as many describe, but there is a reason it is regarded as such: most people don't look at the world in an Ni way.
