    Cognitive Functions and Memory

    I am looking for some feedback on something I thought of. I realized that the content of my memories reflects my cognitive functions. For example, my Se is inferior and my memories do not contain any vivid content reflecting the physicality of the situation. It seems logical that the content of one's memories would be dominated by the content we are most likely to pay attention to. If that is the case then I would expect a Fi dom's memories to be dominated by how they felt in each situation. However, I really have no idea if this holds any merit and would like others' input. Please and thanks.

    Well I think its more the case that memories are filtered through the cognitive functions, so if when you are conscious you don't pay a lot of attention to Sensation oriented material, input from within (memories, emotions, etc) will not processed any different. (Dreams on the other hand are a totally different story, since they are not under conscious control).

    I agree with both of you.

    To affirm, modern psychology states that in order to remember something we must first encode it. In order to encode something, we must pay attention to it.

    Makes sense that the contents of our memories would be stored the way we encoded them.

    Personally, I have a myriad of memories in which I can recall specific bits and pieces each relating to a different function.

    For example, in trying to recall a study group I formed a few months ago I can recall the people who showed up, who was more active/productive and who was a leech (identifying the advantageous people of the group), I can recall the agenda of the group and the general sense of how it went, and I can recall the outcome of the session. I think these each embody Te+Ni.

    However, I can also recall memories such as a time I was sitting on a hillside by myself looking over at the grassy hills and I can recall the intense/deep emotions I was feeling -- I don't remember the situation at the time, or how I got there -- when it was -- what it looked like, I can only recall the idea and what it felt like. I think that's Fi? Inferior too.

    As a Fi-dom, that's exactly how my memory works. =) It's so common for my answer to a memory question to be "I struggle to remember details, I mostly remember how I felt".

    Thank you so much for making this thread, I was looking for an answer to how cognitive functions and memory are related and that theory has merit in my opinion.

    I think memories will be different for people with different cognitive functions because the information they take in will have more of some sensations and less of others.

    Like the Fi-dom poster above me, introverted feelers might remember how they were affected by the situation, extroverted sensors - more of the accurate details, and thinkers - probably what information/knowledge they gained out of the experience.

    However, it is also not very correct to generalize, because some situations may leave memories of a different kind than others, so that also plays a role along with the cognitive functions, in what a person remembers.
