This is a discussion on Fi and Ni need to be defined better within the Cognitive Functions forums, part of the Personality Type Forums category; Originally Posted by Casus Belli Out of context these observations are worthless. In this case, it looks like the page ...
In modern usage, outside of typology, extroverts are typically those who are outgoing in the communication sense. However, it’s quite the opposite for those who are very physically engaged with the world.
By the way, I'd say quite a good bit of original social research has actually happened through PerC in my two years on here through the threads made by my ENFP friend @ai.tran.75 This research isn't formal, but has told us a lot about how people experience their cognitive functions. She asked each Kiersey group "How Do You Think?" and further asked questions about memory that have been quite interesting. We found out through this experience (and everything I'd seen by Dario Nardi, who I mentioned, seems to confirm) that Ne has multiple tracks of thinking at once. We did not know this was unusual. Ni doms usually say that their thoughts are not in a language or internal dialogue and some have said it's more like thoughts before the actual thoughts materialize, but they can be acted on before they materialize. When symbols were brought up that seemed semi-close, but not close enough. A few disputed that they actually thought in symbols. What do you think or experience? Also, those threads are open in the NT forum right now, I believe.
Ni mulls over consequences. (Damage to their reputation, physical harm, etc.)
Fi, consequences are an after-thought. What they believe in is more important and they happily accept any consequences arising from their actions.
So, Ni appears hesitant and Fi doesn't give a shit.
"Doesn't give a shit" is a common thing that people (usually non-Fi users) seem to say about Fi, but caring about everything is much more correct about Fi.
They see themselves as more moral or smart than everyone else.
Consequences is intuition. And You're ENFP.
