IEIs still cannot play off Ne fluidly the way Ne valuers do it. They respond to it passively -- it seems fun and entertaining, but they cannot contribute much in terms of Ne themselves. It's called ignoring or observing function for IEIs so they just absorb it. Prolonged exposure to Ne makes IEIs feel antsy, because they sense that they are spending all this time and energy but still not getting something that they need (that thing being Se).

So really, why do you use people as an example of type when it goes against their current typing and you aren't very sure of their type? It's not a very solid way to offer suggestions either.
@cyamitide, the above reasoning fits your idea of right/process better?

I always thought IEI had this piss poor relation to Ti. That's actually very incorrect for IEI-Ni, which has a lot of similar traits as ILI but has a relational difference to the way they treat the world (it isn't always sun and rainbows on either side).
No less, reason is not very type specific, but IEI-Ni are probably going to be told they are a logical type if they are seriously explaining something.
