    How does inferior Ni manifest in your life? Inferior Ni vs Si?

    Edit- I posted this on the ESTP forum because literally none of the ESFP's respond to anything and it makes me so annoyed, and I would just like to hear what an ESTP has to say.


    So I used this excerpts from a book on how each type's inferior function affects them, and the wierd thing is, after I typed my parents/sibling, it was crazy how this book predicted each of their natural reaction to stress. It even predicted some behavior when normal, and I think it is safe to say these are pretty accurate. What is wierd though, is that everywhere I post on PC I consistently get typed an ESFP, like by a lot of people. But, when I read the Inferior Ni and then I read the Inferior Si excerpts, I was a bit confused, because I related to every single detail the inferior Si article had when I was at my lowest point, like every single detail. But not the inferior Ni. And I saw clear inferior Ni behaviors in my ESTP brother, but not myself.

    So, how does Inferior Ni look in your life? describe your grip experience. Do you relate to having inferior Si? Help me understand the difference between inferior Ni vs Si.

    I just wanted to jump in and take a shot at this.

    Inf Si - fear of repetition, routines, getting lost in details, dislike of established ways of doing things, hard time remembering small details.

    Inf Ni - fear of end goals, of the future, ignoring future consequences, dislike of abstract ideas and anything that is not concrete and happening right now or in the near future.

    Si I have had a fear of time freezing on me. I've had it star in nightmare since I was a kid and being put on time out and worried the clock would stop and I'd be stuck there indefinitely. Nothing good could ever happen to me ever again.

    Ni I've liked lots of abstract ideas. I just don't want to pound them into the mud from dancing on them for an eternity. Ni-doms murder interesting abstract ideas and take all the joy out of them.




    Under stress, if I can't resolve it within a reasonable amount of time, I seek help. I don't mind asking for help and it's available.

    what you say about Si sounds like Ni. You feared you would be stuck in time out forever, nothing good can ever happen again, future oriented.

    Si fear would be like if someone told you to buy 10 things from the store, you might panic that you might forget what items they said on the way to the store. Too many little things to remember might make you go mad.

    Especially if they are all specific brands, you might be afraid " Oh no I might get the wrong one!". It's almost like a physical sensation of anxiety at the thought of having to remember so much.

    You are right about Ni though, it can be a kill joy sometimes.

    What do you experience understress though?

    I can't imagine panicking about forgetting the list. There's not a chance in hell I'd remember all ten items and I'd be willing to try but know I'm not going to remember all of it. As a preschooler, I would have panicked.

    Under stress, last major time I recall, I went on lockdown for a few months. Mostly hid in the basement playing COD and GTA. Friends would come over and it was cool if they were just hanging out but I got nasty if they started asking questions. I'm not mean or the kind of person to deliberately say something cruel premeditated. But I've got a nose for insecurities and attacking got them to back off. I had a path and got to the end of that path and then... I had nothing. What to do when you accomplish what you set out to do? I felt empty. Having goals is my structure. I don't need to know what's going to happen next or have a solid plan. But I need some general direction or what are we even doing here?

    Less extreme version was dealing with a friend's boyfriend who kept imposing plans on our Friday nights. I don't like planning my Friday night, it's supposed to be fun. We usually have a few ideas or my friends might make a basic plan and I'll go along or not. He was making rigid plans, like getting a taxi in the middle of heavy traffic when we could walk faster or take the subway. I blew up at him a few times. I'm mostly easy going, but he upset my friends and he kept pushing me to commit my weekend nights out. I look forward to my Friday and Saturday night all week and he was bogging them down and taking all the adventure out of it. It's good to have a direction but when opportunity knocks, you're going to miss out on something if you stick rigidly to the plan.

    This sounds like Ni. Like you got to the end of a path (Ni) and you feel empty (Se has nothing to do anymore)
    And you don't like Ni rigid plans restricting your Se ability to adapt to things in the moment (opportunities).

    But you also see the need for Ni, which is mostly the case for anybodies inferior function, it's necessary but you can't be like that all the time.

    But it looks like you already know you are ESTP.

    You weren't trying to figure that out were you?

    I expect I'm ESTP. But it's not always obvious. Some of the discussions in ESTP are hard to relate to when they're referencing getting into a fight or physically defending themselves. I think I might have seen a fight break out once in my entire life, but I've never been in a fight and never had to defend myself. I argue with people but I don't raise my voice, just like my parents don't raise their voices at me. I'm not the stereotypical ESTP, but when I've read up and tested, ESTP is the best fit.

    Hm, yea type can manifest in all kinds of ways. Either way your posts sounded higher Se lower Ni. Could be enneagram difference as well, type 8 is very common for ESTP and type 8 is usually about aggression and things like that.
