This past week I had two interesting conversations. Well, ok, only one was a conversation, the other was an argument. The conversation was earlier in the week. It was a bit of information sharing and question asking regarding Ni and Ne differences. The argument was later in the week and served as an example of difficulties between Ni and Ne. (I think I held up well, considering it was four Niís to my one Ne.)
From the two experiences, I am finally about to internalize one of the fundamental differences between Ni and Ne.
Ni says: There is 99.9999% chance of X, therefor X.
Ne says: Even if there is 99.9999% chance of X, there is still 0.0001% chance of Y, or Z, or...., therefor X, or Y, or Z, or.....
(Here I should be saying ďnot XĒ, but it seems too black or white, when it could be brown, blue, purple, grey, etc...)
Now, in daily life, the assurity of X is far less than the number given above. Hence:
Ni says: There is 51% chance of X, therefor X.
or 40% chance X, 31% chance Y, 29% chance Z, therefor X.
(Though I think/hope that at this low of a chance, Ni can at least acknowledge Y and Z might happen.)
Ne says: There is 51% chance of X, therefor there is 49% chance of anything other than X.
or 40% chance X, 31% chance Y, 29% chance Z, therefor X or Y or Z or maybe something else. Who says it is limited to X, Y, Z? Can there be another alternative? No matter how slight???
Before I internalize this lesson, I am checking to see if there is maybe some other explanation. Anyone?
