I both enjoy and hate having such a strong extroverted intuitive sense.

I love my Ne because it allows for wide ranging and spontaneous creativity. I can create complex webs of thought, think waaay outside the box, and I can twist ideas and see new perspectives that others can miss.
I especially love it because it facilitates my sense of the absurd.

Now the negative: I can make huge intuitive leaps based on such limited data. I can make assumptions about others' behaviour - for the very most part towards me - on such little evidence as a glance or a misplaced word. And usually (ok, basically all the time) it is a negative assumption. It drives me up the wall now that I know I'm doing it. I can conciously stop myself from placing too much emphasis on a particular set of actions, but it's extremely difficult if it gets tangled up in my emotions.

As much as I enjoy it, the scales are tipping towards the negative for me. I can see how it has feed my low self-esteem and has made me even more anxious around people.

How has Ne affected your life?

Ne actually now works more in the positive favor for me, as I'm channeling it into the right areas.

Ne has helped me see meaning in everything, wonder in each bit of essence that I can pin down with my eyes and always see different perspectives of the object or idea.

Negatively? I use to assume things so much on the spot, but I'm getting better at that.

Yeah, it works pretty much the same way for me. Sometimes it can take me to far away land in my brain that is all mine that I love, no one knows about it and it's my little secret. When my Ne takes me there sometimes I have a huge smile on my face over something that hasn't happened and never will in real life, but just thinking about the possibility that it could happen makes me smile.

Then other times I hate it. I can take one small negative event and think the worse, this is when I get paranoid and get in a bad mood. When I get like this I have to talk some sense into myself and bring myself back down to reality.

I pretty much ride entirely on my Ne and it's very rarely done me wrong.

My Ne has allowed me to be somewhat creative and think outside of the box, but it's also allowed me to sometimes jump to conclusions when it comes to people. It's also allowed me to have a low self esteem at times---whenever I get a C in math instead of a B, I immediately assume that I'm stupid.
