In contrast, introverted intuition processes observations internally.
Both functions care about finding patterns and coming to a deeper understanding, but Ne experiments while Ni ruminates.
Then a few years after making this statement, I started actually getting to know one of my ENFP acquaintances.
And now we’re dating (doesn’t that sound like just the sort of coincidence that would happen in a romance story? He does have an intense personality but I’ve done enough work overcoming my social anxiety that doesn’t scare me any more (actually, it’s rather exciting).
So even though it’s not as readily accessible to ENFPs and INFJs as N or F, their T sides can show up quite a bit depending on the individual person.The Sensing side for both types is poorly developed.We can work on becoming more comfortable with our inferior functions, but we’ll never use them as effectively as the ones higher on the function stack.And they communicate with each other in a way that naturally “clicks” with how the other type frames the world.
Intuitives only make up about 30% of the population and dominant N types (ENFP, ENTP, INFJ, and INTJ) are an even smaller percentage, so finding someone to connect with in this way is rare and exciting.Thinking is their tertiary function, which is less well developed but still accessible.
