so ive been trying to understand Ne vs Ni and how it would manifest as a base..? to people who understand this better is this close to being right?
Ne looks at possibilities through relationships set by reality, and changes variables within to understand possibilities. Using crude math, let's say Ne user understands that relationship of X and N is affected by way of function F. where N is an external object of interest and X is the User
F=X + N
He takes F as set by reality and determines this relationship through his intuition. Now, through his intuition, he understands how F will change if he varies X or N. He does this most easily through his introverted function, by internally "manipulating" X he is able to achieve his desired result. Say he wants F to equal 4, and X = 2 and N = 1
He can manipulate X to increase 1. So that F = 4
On the other hand, Ni looks at possibilities through dynamically changing relationships and tries to attain the best option by shifting their external environment to match the desired.
Ni user sees multiple possible relationships, including the reality of F= X + N , he also is looking how the entire relationship of X and N changes with respect to external environment shifts i.e. "fantasy".
That is, under different conditions of reality, Ni explores how the relationship will shift.
Say that Ni also wants "4"
Rather than changing the variables, Ni looks to change the whole relationship. if X is 2 and N is 1, and the relationship is F = X + N, he will try to manipulate reality in a way so that a new relationship is formed, G = X + 2N
Since he wants this, he must intuit how to manipulate the surroundings around him to achieve this, which he manipulates through his extroverted creative function. While both achieve the desired result of "4", they do it by opposite ways. Ne base prefers to change internal realities to conform to intuited external relationships, while Ni base will try to change external realities to find the desired internal relationships.
