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.
Autism isn't type related, autism has nothing to do with Ni. All I'm saying is that from an outsider's perspective an autistic person appears disconnected from reality, a trait that is often attributed to Ni types.

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.
You can apply your ego functions to any career. Finding a "niche" within your job where your ego functions are used frequently I think is more useful than career/type stereotypes.

What statements are you talking about? When writing you try to stay away from "I think" and "I feel" and "in my opinion" because it's redundant and it weakens your position. Obviously, everything in my posts is what I believe, think, etc. As for Prom, why do you keep bringing him into this?
So this one time me an' my bes' frien' Stan, we went to a church service. That preacher was talkin' 'bout hell. So Stan leans over to me an' he says, "I bet hell is like a PoLR hit every day."

An' I says, "Stan, you prolly right."
