Now, this topic is valid IFF you believe I'm an ENTj.
I think one of the core topics of Se-Ni interaction is that the Se type has the skill to execute tasks, and the Ni types has the ability to know what the solution is (but is uncertain on how to exactly implement). I've seen this behavior often in the ISTjs and ISFjs in my class, they will ask me "What do I have to do here?", and when I point the direction they speed to the end of the task with ease. Many times I'm baffled by them asking because I feel like it was something trivial to know. Examples are usually to be found in homework and exams, especially in the former there is usually a procession of them asking how to solve issues.
The funny thing is that many times I'm not really sure of what I am telling them. I don't know the solution either, and it is very strange that people trust me this way since I feel like in many instances I'm less competent than them, but I can "say the right words" or something like this. I think smilingeyes described his ENTj phase in a similar way, that is feeling like people were accepting his guidance without any motivation from their side, and without any skill or knowledge from his.
