I think in the soconics community here has a misconception of the "Intuitive" functions- well more Ni then Ne anyway. Ni is not necessarily about time and sequencing or imagining the future- although it may be manifestations of it. Ne is also more than just thinking of possibilities
So I how actually view these is pretty simple- If Se is about objective(external) sensory perception ( for example, I saw that dog run, I heard this person say, I tasted this, I smelt etc) Ne is about the external possibilities of the real world- For example, what could happen on Thursday? Or "I wonder these crates could be arranged" this way" A Se user to me is very connected to physical, real world and a Ne user is connected his or her imagination of the real world.
Think of Ne like Sims- their mind is wondering about how this world could be customizable , or what could happen in the real world. They ignore the internal possibilities( what goes on inside their heads) That is Ni. Ni is simply internal imagery(not exactly thinking of the future) of what images pop in their (and our) head vs. Ne which the possibilities of the external environment. So it's Similar to Se in the sense that it is outerworld focused but focuses on sensing where Ne focused on chasing after external images.
Since Si is internal bodily sensations and ignores the outer world in favor of their own sensations and sensory perceptions, Ni is focused on your imagination and ignores the external possibilities in favor of basically day dreaming from their own mind. Ne will chase after a artifact wondering where it could lead them Ni will chase after their own imagination of the artifact ( the image in their mind)
Oh and another thing I view the "functions" as a continuum instead of complete separate things. That's why they can appear similar (Fe and Fi) Bascially, if your attitude towards something is more external (For example, Ne) your an Ne dom. If it's internal (from you) then Ni dom
Im going to fix this....... sigh
