Really I'm just taking a stab in the dark here, but I'm curious as to whether usage of analogies, similes, and metaphors is at all correlated with a given type. My guess is that Ni generates (or even 'thinks' in) metaphors, and I don't mind being dead wrong on this one. See, here's the issue: a metaphor compares two things and can easily say that one thing 'is like' another, and somehow we make sense of which things are supposed to be considered similar when it's quite clear that most of the time there's a whole bunch of possible wrong interpretations of what the elements of the two objects are similar. I'm less interested in whether a given type finds metaphors useful, as it seems everyone kinda 'gets' the good ones without having to think too much, but it's the coming up with them that I'm real curious about. I can do it, but it feels unnatural, like I'm translating to another language, and I have to think about it to make sure it'll have the intended associations. Oh right. So how much are analogies and metaphors a part of your life?
