  1. MBTI Perceiving Functions Conprehensively Explained

    Myers Briggs Forum
    First, let’s forget that MBTI has profiles. Second, expect to see slight alterations to the common model. 1. Concrete Perception – Sensory vs Abstract Perception – Intuitive To understand the difference between concrete perception and abstract perception, you have to imagine that we...
  2. What is the function responsible for recalling information/nostalgia?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hello! Since five minutes ago I was sure Si was the function responsible for recalling information and nostalgia, but I've read that Jung's description of Si is totally different. So, what is the function responsible for recalling information and nostalgia effect? OBS: post your source(Jung...
  3. [INFP] Can Other INFPs Relate to This?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This has been quite a recurring thing throughout my life. I'm not sure if it's Si or Fi, maybe both, maybe neither. I tend to associate different periods of my life with certain songs. Once I get a song stuck in my head, it's like a constant soundtrack for my life running in the background of...
  4. Enneagram Descriptions that Perfectly Describe Functions

    Cognitive Functions
    I try to read and integrate different personality systems to supplement my psychological understanding and development. Currently I've been focusing on Enneagram and although I agree there isn't an exact correlation, I feel they can greatly complement each other. Anyway, I was reading Riso and...
  5. Fi-Si vs Ti-Si in INXPs

    Cognitive Functions
    Anyone want to talk about how tertiary Si effects INFPs and INTPs? I'm interested in what what kind of influence it has on each of those personality types: specifically whether there is a big difference in how it manifests between those types in terms of their attitude and interests and...
  6. Can Someone Explain Introverted Sensing

    Cognitive Functions
    Hello, Can someone or several people explain to me how introverted sensing works. How can you sense internally? That doesn't make sense to me. Extroverted sensing is easy: you use real time facts from your 5 sense to get information. Si is harder for me to understand. Also, I have always...
  7. Si - the past colors the present, Se - the present colors the past?

    Cognitive Functions
    Trying to clarify a vague impression I've got here. I'd be interested in seeing if it matches other's experience. The thought struck me the other day when a friend was asking my husband about his schedule. My husband's response surprised me because we've kind of been off the 'norm' (as in how...
  8. [INFP] How to Deal with Attacks via Te

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    What is our function stack? Fi - Introverted Feeling - Judging whether something feels right inside us Ne - Extraverted Intuiting - Perception of the outer world, connecting, and brainstorming random links Si - Introverted Sensing - Perception of what is in the present, comparing it to the past...
  9. [INFJ] Ni-Ti Loop (and possibly other dom-tertiary loops)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hii, so I have been interested for the past week in dom-tertiary loops since I have seen mine a lot in my life. So do you guys have any information or experience regarding your dom-tertiary loops (you don't have to be an INFJ) I found this in reddit one time and I'll post it as an example...
  10. [INTP] Retarded introverted sensing

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    My, could be wrong, understanding of introverted sensing is that it's related to the past and learning form it and also internalizing cultural norms. But, in my opinion at least, there are a lot social expectations that should not be followed without questioning. Recently I have been overly...
  11. [INTJ] What helps you use Ni?

    INTJ Articles
    The overall point of this post is to ask what sort of things help you focus on your Ni, whether it be things in your environment or ways to hold your thoughts. I'm high so I'll probably cut a lot of the details (nope just kidding I did not). I'll answer any questions, because I like explaining...
  12. Si and internal physical awareness

    SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    This is one that's been puzzling me a bit - I've read quite a number of descriptions of the Si function since coming to this site, and a fair few of them allude to the idea of "awareness of internal physical states", "internal bodily awareness", "attuned to their own physical health", etc...
  13. [ENTP] What are some ways you have developed your lower functions?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Have any ENTPs tried to develop their inferior function by modelling Si-dom/aux individuals? I think I may have come across an article or video discussing the idea of developing inferior functions by observing someone who has your inferior function as their dominant function. I know of two...
  14. [INFJ] Why I love DJArendee's account of Se vs Si

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I am dating someone with lead Si and I have found there is no greater bafflement to my Ni than this function. I read what I could find about this mystery, but it wasn't until this video that I found a workable notion. Se - the de-personalisation of...
  15. [ISTP] Si or Se

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hmm reading some explanations of the difference between Si and Se seriously makes me consider being an Se-user. I like experiencing highly stimulating environments and I enjoy experimenting with different objects. For example I went longboarding with my ESFP friend. It was my second time ever...
  16. [INTP] INTPs and child-like Si

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    INTPs, how usually your child-like Si (step by step approach, desire to categorize, classify things) looks like when it comes out? Sometimes, when I start to explore, let's say, new theory, I have an inspiration to start a notebook, where I am PLANNING to draw tables, systems and write down all...
  17. INFP: How can we develop our 3rd function Si more, and in Positive Ways?!

    Cognitive Functions
    I go through phases it seems, most of them unhappy. Cycles? If you will. When I am in my happiest days, weeks, months, I realized tonight that it's because I'm stretching (though unwittingly) my Si muscles. Which I think looks like bypassing your Fi, although they always work together, I...
  18. [INTP] Intuitive Learning versus Formal Training

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Do you find much of what you learn is intuitive? Do you fly by the seat of your pants* when you're learning how to do something? As such, what you learn may be less accessible to repeat back parrot style. You may not even remember that you did it? *Where pants = brain.
  19. Are implications an Introverted Sensing thing?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi everyone! :tongue: I was having trouble applying a certain character trait to MBTI theory and was wondering if you any of you guys could help me out. My first boyfriend is an ISFJ (Si, Fe, Ti, Ne) and I've always noticed that he tends to prefer to IMPLY things to get a message across, as...
  20. How does introverted sensing work?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Can someone please give me a practical example? I don't understand this function.
