    How do you know you are using NI. When i am thinking alone i am pretty much talking a lot in my head its loud clear. I am sure as you can be that my brother is an INFJ and i will be going on and on with ideas i think he is not listening 10 or 20 mins later he is talking going on like it was 2 mins ago. That is how i see NI.

    After posting my comment about pizza, I got on my bike and cycled to my very non INFJ, current job as a cleaner. It then occurred to me that I might have spent ages using my Ni and Fe, contemplating how to get the perfect pizza recipe but really there isn’t one because everyone’s perception would be different. It would then occur to me there is no right or wrong and I should just sit down and enjoy eating it. I’m wondering if this is how my stack of functions works. Ti kicked in and ended with SE?

    I think all introverted functions (Si, Fi, Ti, Ni) look for reductionist answers to things, and reductionism likes to boil things down to their simplest parts.

    The extroverted functions (Ne, Se, Fe, Te), by contrast, look at outcomes. Outcomes can be infinite. And if the outcomes are not infinite, they are at least not the sum of their parts, and for that reason, complex.

    Take the game of chess. Trying to understand how the game works in a reductionist fashion by understanding what pieces are available and how the pieces are allowed to move is pretty simple, straightforward and definable.

    Trying to understand how the game works by understanding all the different possible plays…well, its difficult and not straightforward; there are more possible outcomes in chess than atoms in the universe. This why we can teach a computer how to play the game of chess but not how to always win.

    Its from our introverted functions that we derive something solid and unchanging to anchor ourselves to, such as memories and traditions, morals and values, facts and symbols.

    Its from our extroverted functions that we understand the game play of life.

    People with dominant Ni find comfort in anchoring themselves to reductionist time, which is why don’t have the NP struggle of thinking of a million ways something could happen. Once we figure out what the most likely thing is, its very hard to budge or imagine another possibility.

    Continuing with the pizza analogy. I think as an INFJ I would start by researching everybody’s method of making the best pizza. At first I would try different methods and I wouldn’t be sure where to start. Then I would narrow down until I was sure I had the answer. Finding the perfect pizza would be the ultimate goal. I think of Ni as starting wide and then narrowing down until I’m completely focused on the answer. Is this right? Do other INJ’s experience it the same way? I am never sure I have an answer until I’ve gathered many opinions.
