Think cloudgazing, or naming constellations...

When I was younger, I slept on a top bunk and I remember many a time laying on my back, just staring up at the ceiling. It was a stuckoed ceiling, so as I gazed I would find all sorts of interesting "pictures" hidden in the ceiling, thanks to the stucko and the way light would cast shadows in just the right spots...

What function was I using?

As a child, I always did this too... and still do. I wonder if it's just a mix of different ones along with being open. I think it's more prevalent in intuitive minds(that look for/appreciate beauty). Sorry, I'm not exactly much help. Neat question though.

Interesting. My instinct was to say Ne, but then wouldn't these functions be very underdeveloped for an INFJ?
Not necessarily. I think my Ne is pretty well-developed, Si rather less so...Anyway, one's shadow functions can be well-developed, depending on uprbringing, experience, intentional practice...I have always used Ne a lot, but it is definitely more of a practiced function. I enjoy using Ne when it comes to freely using my imagination; but when I am forced to use Ne out of necessity (like for brainstorming), my mind rebels. In other words, I have to want to use Ne in order to use it effectively.
