    What activities are good to develop ISFP's tertiary function Ni?

    What exercises are good for ISFP's to develop their tertiary function Ni? I brought 'do what you are' book which says that when people develop their intuition they become more open to change and seeing things in new ways. Some new interests would be Art,Design, Religion, Research, Degree, Problem Solving, travel to learn about different cultures, long-range planning, creative writing or invention. I have been told I'm good at writing. I've designed a few things before. I have a religious tradition but recently I've been looking into to things like the origin of religions, how all are related to one another. I would like to travel. In university I went to a different city.

    Well to have accurate/good Ni you need lots of patterns.
    You get patterns from Se.
    You also need lots of "facts", you get facts from Te.
    In general I would say that ISFPs have almost too much Ni, and too little Se and Te.
    Introverts in general get stuck in their little introverted world.
    You aren’t really developing Ni, you are feeding it better data.
    Bad Ni = bad data. ;)

    Philosophy, math, programming, strategic games like chess, abstract jokes.

    Mostly understanding the essence of things, their categories and connections between things, rather than focusing on an individual thing and how it looks on the outside.

    Well lets say you see an object in the world.
    Ni would take this object make it into an idea and examine that idea from all angles.
    Now this happens automatically, all you can do is make sure that the objects experienced
    are accurate representations of the issues at hand.

    If you where to do anything to "work" on Ni
    It would be to shut yourself off from any other stimulation, so Ni could work in peace.
    Then you could concentrate on the idea of the object in your minds eye and explore it from there.
    You wouldn't be strengthening Ni though, only strengthening the idea that Ni was working on.

    You can't really exercise cognitive functions. You can however steer consciously the information you choose to focus on.
    Some information trigger Se, but stimulating Se also triggers Ni as they are linked at the hip.

    Here is a good book for learning how to develop your functions:

    Amazon.com: 8 Keys to Self Leadership: From Awareness to Action (9780971932616): Dario Nardi: Books

    Well, as an ISFP, your primary mindset will automatically be the refined scruitiny of Fi and the powerful but less refined scruitiny of Te. Ni as a perception function will need these to quiet down to flourish. Practice thinking in a way where there is no right or wrong or good or bad until you are as close to living and believing such thinking. Then the trick is to not ride along the whole Se in-the-momentness the entire time but to let your mind drift from reality. Let the way things are grow fuzzy, and work into your thoughts every chance you get and flow with it.

    A fun way is to watch tv series then try predict what is going to happen. Tv writers tend to use patterns in character behaviour, their backgrounds, motives, plot lines, twists at the end etc....... Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty fun!

    Yea, and I think "develop" isn't really the word for something auxiliary as much as maybe just learning to "trust" it. Just learning to stick with it rather than resorting to the ego perspective to get away from it. I don't think Jung really meant that perspectives can really even be developed cognitively for their own sake - it's all about the will of the person and their psychological development, let alone, dealing with complexes (I mean, he even admitted that the "functions" are sort of just terms for complexes that get rationalized in thoughts, feelings, etc. that might be affecting someone's adaptation there - not really that a person's ability there has anything to do with it (the inferior might represent a few exceptions though, although I wouldn't call it ability, because it's too subjective to classify), which is where MBTI goes way wrong imo.

    I often use Ni when I re-watch artsy movies that I like that have a lot of symbolism -- like Closer. It's fun to try to guess the meanings of everything.
