Yea, I would step away from the word “purity” here, as I think it’s not appropriate and there’s a subtle value judgment there which I don’t think needs to be there.
I would say the absolute complete story of Ni-ness, or the “pure” Ni… is that which exists collectively in all hierarchies and in all Ni users. But such a thing does not exist in any human.
A function will always exist in relationship to other functions. No function exists in isolation. So indeed, even an Ni-lead’s Ni might be said to not be the whole narrative of Ni. I don’t think we can “know” what a function is by itself, any more than we can know what emotions are like outside of the body. We only ever see Ni in a given context.
As you said it’s a tool; one that is wielded 8 different ways across 2 different quadras.
