    Default IEIs/INFps, how do you use your Ni?

    I keep testing as INFJ on MBTI tests.

    Would you mind sharing some self knowledge with me to see if perhaps I might belong here?
    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    You're INTj. Or at least an extreme logical type.

    The equivalent of that statement is that I have underdeveloped feeling functions. That could have many reasons.

    Herzy, how do you seek Ni, what does it mean to you? What attracks you to it, if at all?

    Oh, that's really not what I was saying. You just seem to be a Tj type.

    Herzy, how do you seek Ni, what does it mean to you? What attracks you to it, if at all?
    heh, I'm not even completely sure, actually. I guess it's because I all over the place, and I need some sort of counterbalance for it all. When I get the , I do less random ing, and I actually think before I do things.

    And I am very attracted to , kind of for the reasons as mentioned above. Otherwise, I can't really explain it, because it's not a concious thing that I do. So I guess that means that I like it, simply because I like it.

    How do you know that you have received Ni? How do you spot it in the environment or yourself?

    I get that little fuzzy, happy-euphoria feeling. I feel like laughing in a weird stupor, even if it's not funny.

    At least that's what it's like from the Beta types. It's different when it's not paired with . I'll explain that a little later if you'd like, because I have stuff to do now!

    I'm not Beta, so I don't know if I should be responding, but for me Ni just is. I don't know anything else.

    That's kind of difficult because I don't think I know how to differentiate it from my self, because my brain always acts with Ni.

    How do you use Ni? Can you differentiate from your self?

    I am sorry, I don't quite understand that. In what way does your brain act with NI always?

    I guess I experience everything intuitively? Like I said, it's hard for me to explain. If your brain knows nothing else, how can it know what its not?

    INFps Collectively: We don't know.

    I don't really know how I use consciously, so this will sound chaotic and spacey... Like, a strange architectural sense of time and the potential associations with times. I get a sense I'm moving towards something vague and beautiful, and I have no idea what. It's almost like I'll eventually end up in a dream of some sort. I've got plenty of "dream images" locked away from rocking between sleep and wake from when I was really young, that sort of haunt me and emerge every now and then when they're triggered by a thought/idea/music.
    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    I have a stupid question...if you are intj, which is TiNe....how does your brain "always act with Ni"? Are you referring to it as your 8th function?

    For me, Ni is about having knowledge what will happen in 10 min, in an hour, in the evening... I know because I've been there already, in my thoughts. Time-scale is not that important, so what I think will happen in 10 min, might happen in 30 min...

    This is somewhat similar to how my INFp sister described it long ago. I can't remember what she said exactly, but I'm pretty sure she "sees" how time will move on.

    Yeah, I had a fever and had taken some woozy inducing medicine at that time. Even I don't know what I meant.

    This is in tune with how I percieve that function. Ni often makes me distrust my own perceptions because of the tendency to drift from waking dream state to waking dream state. This is why I'm often immobilized and unable to take action. I have a hard time keeping reality and the various images I create of it seperate and I have a hard time interpreting the most effective course of action to take because of this.
    I can fully relate to this. I’m glad to know there are others who perceive like that, and its not just me.

    I think you mean "what I want to do in 10 mins", right?

    My is mystical like a pyramide in Egypt, though I am not a Lyricist. But I get those hunches. I will have this wierd shakening over my body and I will get some info from my unconciousness. Suddenly I will understand something. I see people's future usually. Somewhere in my unconciousness there is a lot of material about people and laws how they interact and behave in diferent situations, so my has a capacity to it and it tells me when something will happen, because it has noticed something abnormal from usual. My Intuition of Time is in the ID block, but sometimes my EGO weakens and those last functions become concious.

    I see as how from A becomes B . A dynamic process. Like how young blueyesed people will become into unhappy adults. What actions will lead them to that. Like a movie is runing ahead of your eyes.

    @ann: I hope you realize that for Introverts the functions are more of a jumbled mess as opposed to being distinctly seperated like in Extraverts.

    Um...it's a jumbled mess for Extraverts as well.

    Perhaps because one can really only talk theoretically about individual functions. It's kind of like talking about a person's walk by only talking about the swing of her right arm...maybe even how it affects the swish of her hair, or the way her left foot comes off the ground. There's a whole lot of stuff being connected, but somehow people tend to manage splitting up the parts so they can talk about the structure/dynamics/relationships between one part and another.

    Unfortunately, we have a linear language which can't even begin to describe what's going on in the mind....whether one is extrovert or introvert. However, just like in language, if one understands the terms being used, one can hopefully learn to communicate clearer.

    Like music or waves, I see Ni as being able to sense the undulations across time. For every rise and fall throughout the timeline, Ni still asks what is missing and when it will arrive in order to fulfill the will of change. Ni is like change. When something changes, some things die and some things are born anew.

    This is where Se comes in. I see dual pairs as the moon in rotation. They are one in the same but have different faces as it rotates. Se is related to Ni because it is the force behind these undulations.
