Yes I have to admit, Ni for me is more a love/hate relationship.For letters, T = N > J > E
Not that I like E least, but I am glad it's J instead of P more than E over I. As, I'd rather be INTJ > ENTP. I can't choose between whether it's better for me to be ESTJ or ENFJ.
As for functions, I like my Ni best, maybe. Or hate it most, I can't tell. I respect my Te, and can appreciate the hard work Se does, even the much-neglected Fi has some merits; but Ni is the wild card that can make something turn brilliant or blow up.
