    Is reading a book (or reading anything in general) an example of Ne or Ni?

    Is reading a book (or reading anything in general) an example of Ne or Ni? Or does it have anything to do with cognitive functions at all?

    I try my hardest to read books but I just can't because of my lack of intuition. I flick through the pages helplessly as words rush by me.

    No. Is breathing Se?

    I am Ne dom. When I read history books suddenly I understand physics, but not necessarily history

    I would think it just a person thing, any function could enjoy reading for different reasons. Maybe Ni/Ne wants more perspective, or Fe/Fi sees application in it, etc.

    Just like pro-gaming is a clear Ni or Ne :)

    The act of reading itself would be Se, I think.


    How you process what you read would trigger all the other cognitive functions.

    I think it comes down to how you see the book in its entirety, as an abstract concept... (otherwise it would be sensing)

    I guess Ni would integrate/assimilate the book (as a whole, in an abstract way) into their worldview and Ne would just see it as an external concept, not minding it afterwards.











    But the act of reading on its own doesn't depend on a specific cognitive function

    It's information processing based on observation. I wouldn't attribute it to perspective and/or imagination alone - maybe a combination of sensation, judging and imagination. Basically, C.J's entire cognitive function arsenal.
