Due to this type’s prioritization of both Ne and Fi, giving birth to a duo of off-beat processes that seek their own unconventional interpretations of meanings and reality – the NeFi can manifest a very diverse range of interests, specialties and lifepaths. There’s no position that other types occupy where an NeFi cannot also be found.
- Cognitive Type
- Cognitive Type
I would probably rank NeFi as the #1 most flexible type, as far as the range-of-expression. They've sure given me a hard time! Here I wanted to cover some of these more dynamic/unexpected transformations.
NeFi-Te Jenna Marbles (alt: TeSi)
A natural, low-makeup, non-parody video:
Notice her parody at 0:35. And her many many asymmetrical smiles, as well as Te monotone voice atop of a rather comedic Ne persona she likes to play.
She really really amps up the makeup in some videos, but her eyes are actually quite Ne when the makeup comes off. Eye-toggling, as well as a scowl that rises toward the center, lots of momentum, etc.
Her youtube persona: SeTi-parody
Her youtube persona: SeFi-Te parody
And now here's a thing I notice her doing (which I've seen many Ne users do, including myself ), is to parody Se! So the funny thing about Ne and Se is that they both get along with each other, being Explorer functions, and can riff off one another as well.
But Ne often does this thing where it memetically loops things. So it can parody a parody of a parody, etc. It can also parody its own parodies. So I've seen this thing where if you put an Ne-lead in a friend-group of Se-leads, they'll start to try to emulate Se "Presence" (as Jenna is trying to do above), but it always comes off a bit cartoony. It lacks the intensity of Se, and just seems satirical (which it is). And often Ne will love to play with sex jokes, and gender stereotypes, because it's one of the most rich places for entertainment. But it's not really "sensual" when they make sex jokes, it's just quirky.
This even happens when Ne-leads are genuinely trying to believe themselves to be part of the high-Se subculture. They can never quite "harden" the way SeTi or SeFi-Te, or other Se types can "harden".
Jenna is very confident in herself, but also plays it up. She has a strong NeTe duo and in this way she's a bit like Stephen Colbert, except she parodies the Pe domain, rather than the Je (political) domain.
I think TeSi-Ne is a possible typing too (as a type of Miley Cyrus shade) but I see far more Pe energy than Je energy in her. She seems to be emulating high-Te as well, from what I can gather.
