This is a bit tricky since I’m unsure of where Se ends and Ni begins. It also might be tough separating Ti... Here goes!
What's Ni like for you?
-Much of my worldview and relaxed verbal style is filled with metaphorical truisms to make sense of my perceptions. -I think there’s a temporal element that I can’t quite explain
-I have a default view that everything is connected. Patterns are everywhere!
How do you experience it? -It’s a bit stereotypical but I experience frequent visions when enough sensory or mental stimulation occurs. It’s definitely a bodily experience as much as it is mental. While it happens a lot with negative events (like in the apocalyptic visions section of the Ni description), it happens just as frequently with positive or neutral events. Unfortunately, the negative experiences aren’t so fun when coupled with PTSD and anxiety. 😣 -I verbally cryptic ramble... a lot lol. -Overall Ni slows down my energy - Numbers feel sacred to me
- I have a very strong connection with my dreams and feel fully conscious within them. There’s lots of lessons and warnings that I’ve taken and applied from my unconscious between dreams and shadow work.
Why are you attracted to it? -This is something I haven’t been able to identify. My best guess is that it brings me a stabilizing linearity.
-I’m not too sure how to articulate my connection to archetypes.
How much is it "you"? -I identify a lot with Ni. It’s much easier to live it than explain here but I’ll try. - I’m driven by an endless quest for internal and external universal Truth. To put it more clearly, After Se explores various points of information I use Ni for most of the time to look for the best fit method and best fit patterns of the information then use Ti for further reduction.
I’ll do my best to elaborate if needed! EDIT: Post-thread thoughts
Auburn I didn’t wanna clutter up the forum so I’ll put put additional thoughts on my experience with Ni/Pi here:
-I enjoy chaos within the bounds of order (which does often change socially depending on the environment). In other words, exploration within cautious and flexible boundaries. I'll push the boundaries occasionally but not too often.
-There's a slight pull to subjects considered woo or alternative but there's only a few that I really immerse myself in. Usually lucid dream analysis, reading about symbolism, and aromatherapy.
- I have a heavy focus on integration and individuation. Mindfulness meditation and inner child bonding are my current methods.
- More than anything I'm a very religious person without a rigid and dogmatic energy. I mainly focus on living my own life in line with my Christian beliefs. >With that said, I like offering general counsel in the form of providing new perspectives and leaving it for the other person to decide so as not to overstep their freedom.
-I’m jokingly called "the voice of reason" by almost everyone I'm close with irl.
-I'd say that one of my greatest strengths is perspective shifting. Easily being able to step into the shoes of another with enough detachment from my own values. Of course the shifts are only usually as accurate as long as the information that I've collected is accurate and never 100% on point as long as I'm limited by my own biases. (Lol Fe disclaimer). >This along with somatic mirroring likely creates my identification with "empath".
-Under this development I'm definitely prone to laziness phlegmatic temperament. EDIT 2: I’m fairly certain that my Ti is back in consciousness and at the time of my video (7months before the thread) I modulated down. Some of what was written above may have been a hybrid of Ni+Ti.

I echo crymsonfox in having no idea what is what, but I'll try.
-I can't do granular easily, I feel vibes, I type with qualia -I have the free flowing exploration of Se, need high stimulation, but I need to be stimulated by Ni topics -I always jump right into metaphorical descriptions, underlying patterns, meanings -I love Se things like fashion and aesthetics, but only when there's a deeper meaning behind them, it's not enough to just look at fashion and admire it, it needs to represent something unseen, a deeper force, an archetype -I get almost a buzzing enjoyment when everything is connected in some way to a deeper force or web, but that's very unconscious, I get the same buzz when I think about things that are unseen like ghosts or anything that's beyond the eye that would somehow link everything into a web -I have a strong focus on perception in general, I have strong enough Te, but my ego is all about taking in info and playing with it, finding new perspectives -I'm attracted to magic (my Se-Te tells me it's not real but) the idea of the physical world being more than what it is is beautiful, I feel like I want to blaze electricity out of my fingertips, to channel some sort of unseen energy in the air and manipulate it -I get a long so easily with Ni doms, like they are the me that's underneath, it's hard to explain, the playing with words and ideas -Everything that I experience with Ni is related to a physical object rather than Ne's parodies, it's like I start with an object and burst out into associations based on it -I am high stimulation but forget everything I see, I have absolutely no sensory memory for events or spaces, I remember only general impressions and vibes -I have very little grounding in reality in comparison to some Se doms, I'm lost in a haze of my own imagination
There are probably more points but that's it for now
