It was the whole vibe between us that changed when I brought up Ni usage.
And my gut gave me the sinking feeling I always get when your information has been "cognitively rejected".
So it is more a gut feeling thing. The body language I picked up on a rewatch and remembering how I felt at that time.
The topic was about something that she didn't perceive as real. I can't say for sure, but I get the impression that Si/Te
heavy people lack an affinity for things that isn't real, like anime.
Anyway after that I moved the topic towards topics I knew high Si users revel in (safety etc) and guess what,
her interest spiked significantly. And she kept going on about possibilities from a safety perspective.
That is very Ne. INFP is a possibility for sure, but I did get the feeling that she was more playful and explorative with her Fi
than an Fi dom would be. We are more firm and set in our Fi ways. My INFP friend is way more opinionated about Fi topics
than I got the impression from her.
No you wasn't rude. I was able to pick up on your internal state and discern that you was unable to relate to the information.
Rudeness implies that you consciously chooses to display disrespect.
In your case you had a process outside your awareness make you behave in a certain way.
I only picked up on it since I'm very much in tune with the state of what the other person is about in the moment.
It is an ISFP/9 blessing and curse.I'm sticking with ISTJ as your Ti logic reasoning seems as irrelevant to me as Ni seemed to fihe in our chat.Still, your theory doesn't actually contradict any of the cognitive functions we've been seeing in @fihe. The leading contender is INFP, which has the same functions as ISTJ, in a different order. It's just a matter of whether the Si+Te pair is more dominant than the Fi+Ne pair. I personally still see more Fi+Ne than Si+Te.
Just as my Fi reasoning probably irks Ti doms the wrong way too. :p
