I was pondering on the nature of Ni in IEIs.
Could it be that the difference between the introverted and the extroverted subtype revolves around how strong the impact of the creative function is?
IEI-Ni could be like a quasar, distant from reality, needing to be dragged down with a powerful telescope. Or a soft mist, ethereal and impalpable, with an aftertaste of an ancient echo.
IEI-Fe could be like a rainbow, closer to the ground and visible with naked eye, needing a specific touch of reality to be brought to life and show it’s brilliance, colorful and emotional still delicately elusive.
They both feel like sprites, nymphs or fairies but with a different nature… one more ethereal the other more emotional.
