If you want to know what Prom thinks maybe you can PM him, otherwise please take your ridiculous persistance elsewhere - or at least, don't involve me. Thank you.

I can't resist myself. This is just insanity.

If you follow the works of Swiss neurobiologists Kamila and Henry Makram, you will see that among the most recent hyposits is that autism comes about from a hypersensitivity to the world, that is, the autistic experiences the senses so strongly that the brain is unable to process it, it leaves the brain overwhelmed.

THAT is what the mind of an autist is like, THAT has nothing to do with Ni, nor is it attributed to Ni in any way that I can think of, even "extreme" Ni.

There's maybe something wrong with our 'duality', even when apparently agreeing there is strife, hmmm.

The best indicator I've seen is based on club.
Well, are you familiar with all the socionists and their take on this? Leaving aside what a 'socionist' is just now, if you have heard of Tatyana Prokofieva, she is head of some socionics institute in Ukraine. She has written articles relating type to career choice, indeed she believes in order to excel we need a job which uses our ego block.

I suppose I have issues with you stating things as fact when they are not, that is one of the things I see as 'attacking", notwithstanding that you probably don't understand where Prom is coming from, and that he hasn't posted for months.

I'm aware you meant it in a different context, that is why I was joking - that is why I explained I was joking, however, as you persisted I decided to assist you with an explanation.

Feel free to use it, or not.

Feel free to hit me up with as many questions as you choose, but since doing so in the original thread noisily obscures responses to Abeille's questions, I'd also much rather take it elsewhere.
I don't remember asking you this, it was directed towards another user, perhaps you missed that.

In regards to asking you questions, I appreciate the offer, if something comes up which I think may be of interest to me, i'll ask.

I'll say however, if you want to combine different Jung typologies, as far as i'm concerned it's up to you, it depends whether it is useful for you or not, it is not a socionic concentration camp afaik.
