Extraverted iNtuiting* - (Ne)

 

Extraverted iNtuiting involves noticing hidden meanings and interpreting them, often entertaining a wealth of possible interpretations from just one idea or interpreting what someone's behavior really means.

It also involves seeing things "as if," with various possible representations of reality.


Using this process, we can juggle many different ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and meanings in our mind at once with the possibility that they are all true.

This is like weaving themes and threads together.

We don't know the weave until a thought thread appears or is drawn out in the interaction of thoughts, often brought in from other contexts.

Thus a strategy or concept often emerges from the here-and-now interactions, not appearing as a whole beforehand.

Using this process we can really appreciate brainstorming and trust what emerges, enjoying imaginative play with scenarios and combining possibilities, using a kind of cross-contextual thinking.

Extraverted iNtuiting also can involve catalyzing people and extemporaneously shaping situations, spreading an atmosphere of change through emergent leadership.
