    • What does Ni look like to INFJ and INTJ?

      I've heard it before. The advice to figuring out which of the 16 Myers Briggs type you are: read about all the cognitive functions to figure out if you use them. Thankfully, I was professionally typed a number of years ago, because if I had read about Ni to decide if I use it, it would have been an "ehmmm" situation. It's such a subconscious thing and it's hard (for me) to identify in others. So how do you define Ni? What does it look like to you?

      What does Ni look like to INFJ and INTJ?

      Isn't Ni in opposition to Se? If Se is the observations of physical reality, Ni would be focused inwardly on an abstract observation. Brought together, Ni would be searching for meaning behind a particular thing they have observed in the world (Se). Overall, Ni seems to be asking, "What does this really mean?"

      In INFJs and INTJs, you will recognize what drives them is to see behind superficiality. This is most important to them, more important than obvious observations.Their middle two functions still support the Ni.

      What does Ni look like to INFJ and INTJ?

      I read a blog by an introverted mother about her extroverted daughter. She points out that while she enjoys and exclaims gratification inside her mind (things like "wow, that cake was delicious"), her daughter would say them out loud. I've since used this to define my Ni. If someone were to ask me why I like Star Trek, I wouldn't be able to answer them right away. I'd go through the week with the question in the back of my mind, at the same time, performing my daily functions. On one day, I'd read an astronomy book and think, "yeah, I like space, that's one reason why I like Star Trek." then on another day, I'd have a discussion on social equality with a friend and again, I would add that to the list of why I like Star Trek. I'm doing this for a long period of time without realizing that I'm still thinking about that silly Star Trek question. At the end of the week, I'd tell my friend my reasons and she would have forgotten it already because my reply was so delayed.


      I think our inability to respond fast enough to anything that gets thrown at us (feedbacks, questions, events, etc) has to do with our need to ponder about the subject for a long period of time without talking about what is happening inside our mind. It's like how some extroverts are so talkative with other people. We on the other hand talk to ourselves, having conversations with ourselves at any given time (within a dream, while we're in the restroom, even while we're talking to someone else). But this is my experience with Ni, I don't know how it's like for other INJs. Also, this is a very broad explanation and may not describe a specific Ni case.

      INFJs look at a coffee stain on the wall, insist it's a malignant spirit avatar and blames you for willful blindness to the truth because you are socially conditioned to believe in comforting fairy tales.

      INTJs look at a pee stain on the toilet, blame men for endangering public hygiene because when they refuse to pee sitting down they're socially conditioned to grasp onto their oppressive symbols of masculinity.

      Oh uhm. I guess I didn't mean to say "broad explanation". I meant to say that I explained it for the specific introverted intuition case of where we tend to ponder about anything, even a trivial matter, for an extended amount of time. We'd thoroughly think about any topic or any person for a long while before we can come to a general conclusion. And when we do, it may come off as incredibly insightful and prophetic to other people. Only they don't know that we've just been silently analyzing these things out loud inside our mind for so long. In terms of analyzing people, I think it just may be a more of an instantaneous intuition for INFJs than for INTJs because you guys are so sensitive to others' feelings. But I don't really know this part, so you tell me hahaha.

      What does Ni look like to INFJ and INTJ?

      As someone obsessed with INTJs and INFJs, I'll be the first to say they aren't as mysterious as they seem. It's not an instant magical insight. It's not knowledge whispered in their ear from God. It's just that there's a lot of data swimming around - random things they've noticed - and it sits there, each swimming around and linking up with one another until it all ties together into a single tapestry. And the idea that comes from it will make sense, and the more they consider the data, whether with Te or Fe, the more connections they'll discover that reinforce the idea.

      I think the reason these ideas appear so insightful is that they're elegant. Elegance is the primary concern of intuitive dominants. Ideas cannot merely be accurate. They must be beautiful and deep. In the words of Ramanujan, an equation means nothing unless it expresses a thought of God. So when an intuitive dominant deigns others worthy of hearing their ideas, the ideas they utter will have such cleverness and such depth that the truth of it almost seems irrelevant

      I agree, people think that we're mysterious, but the truth is that we follow 3,4 or more trains of thought at the same time, and might be distracted by our own thoughts if we become bored. There are occasions in which I get a glance of a random object and it triggers a number of thoughts which lead to existential or scientific questions. Also, the cognitive functions (especially the executive ones) are affected by many factors, mainly your age and in my opinion the number of languages you speak. They are not directly linked to your personality.

      For me, I notice Ni in another person when I realize that they just get what I am saying even when lacking the bridge I often fail to build to connect my points. The communication feels a bit effortless. However, I have seen ESTJs and ISTJs that almost mask as Ni. However, if I get far enough in conversation, the look of confusion on their face gives away their Si. Haha

      Ah yes, the look of "You're making my head hurt" or "If I could form a sentence right now, I would fly away so instead, I'll squint and change topics"

      To me Ni is overanalyzing everything and everyone everywhere all the time even though I know it'll never be enough to the point where I get sick of myself and try to drown my own thoughts with YouTube and someone else's thoughts. More concretely it's overanalyzing that fucking MBTI test for weeks on end, analyzing everyone I've ever known through it, talk my patient friends' ears off about it, find this website at 1AM while I should be sleeping and answer this post even though it's 6AM now.
