    Somewhat, but i wouldn't be surprised if it is also largely tied to type 6 or maybe just that. I am both Si dom and core 6 and I do have hard time letting things go, so it is hard to tell for me what causes that . I don't really see that much in ESXJs though

    I hold onto relationships, situations, unhealthy things for a long time. Sometimes it takes two or three times for the lesson to be learnt. But once it's learnt, it sticks with and future patterns and red flags get shut down.

    I think so yeah, but I think that this is more tied directly to introversion than just Si overall. I think Ni is capable of this as well.

    People who are generally inclined to be inward-focused/directed would tend to rely more on their innermost thoughts, feelings, ideas, judgement and also self-preservation so imo "holding on to something" is essentially an outcome of that inward focus.

    Partially, I guess. Si and 6 (but not sx-last). It's beyond type but Si may be more prone than some of the other functions.

    Yeah, in relationships. With practical-pragmatic things nah, I'm more flexible there. In relationships and with personal emotional things it used to be terrible. I'm actually getting a lot better at this lately with gaining more awareness of Intuition and Feeling (especially the two together).

    Same. If a bad outcome for an important thing happens twice, I do not try again. I try a third time if very important. Otherwise not. Or I can try again if I got to understand the "big picture", the underlying factors more, so as a result I can gain more refined logical understanding of them and more control over the outcome. And, if it is a very very important issue, then I don't try even for a second time. Unless I do gain more control like I said.

    In general? Or in an unhealthy context only?

    Haha like your question. When it's healthy it's called perseverance :)

    If I'm not mistaken there is a nostalgic quality to Si, so at times maybe.

    If it's a holding on to sensory impressions, then yes.

    IF it's holding on to something beyond sensory impressions, because one finds them particularly meaningful or significant, then we are talking about a judging function (quite often fi or fe) working with Si.


    But Si alone (and of course, it never actually shows up alone) is purely perception.
