Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Intuition
In my previous post I covered extraverted Intuition. It’s now time to address introverted Intuition (Ni). While there is a similar focus on big-picture possibilities, introverted Intuition most often helps us perceive the big picture as it relates to long-term possibilities. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Ni questions:
- What is the most unique and unusual vacation experience I can imagine?
- What would be a vacation that I would be one of the first of people I know to try out?
- Which vacation experience would connect best with my long-term vision of finding meaning?
- What vacation can I envision that will have the most long-term impact on my life?
“Dominant introverted Intuitive types refuse to act until their internal picture is formed. They will read, think, and explore internal perceptions and images, until suddenly, all is clear. From there, action is easy and definite. Changing their insight at this point, however, is difficult because it is whole, complete, and complex.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development.
The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on introverted Intuition (Ni) during decision making are INTJ and INFJ. The types that might forget to use Ni during decision making are ESFP and ESTP.
