  1. [INTP] Reliving things?...

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Sometimes, when I feel I've made a mistake, I find myself inadvertently reliving the mistaken circumstance constantly. In certain cases I've actually held a discussion in my head with the "actors" in the memory, mapping out all of the things I could have done. These conversations even make their...

  3. Creative Thinking INTP, Want to Be More Powerful

    What's up, I have been a frequent visitor on Personality Cafe for three years so today I finally decided to get a membership. I hate awkward introductions, as they seem so self-serving, but I figured "what the hell." About me I was born in Houston, moved to Alaska when I was young, relocated...

Drenth's description of Se, Extraverted Sensing (Se) vs. Introverted Sensing (Si), Si is described as being resourceful and less consumerist than both Ni and Se, particularly when combined Si is combined...
  5. Si and Pack-Rats?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've got a little theory, not sure if it plays out in real life, but from the people I know it seems to. I don't know if I really understand the functions correctly, but this is my impression of how they seem to work. I wonder if Si tends to encourage one to not throw things away? Si - seems...

  8. Si. What on earth does it even do?

    Cognitive Functions
    I'm so confused about Si. It's kind of the worst function for me to be confused on, since it happens to be my first one, but I just can't seem to wrap my head around it. All the descriptions I've seen seem to contradict each other and the whole function doesn't make sense. I saw one analogy...
  9. [INTP] Si (Introverted Sensing) in Images and Audio

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    There are many different interpretations of Si around here. The most notable difference appears to be a perception of Si to be in relation to the physical world, rather than an internal ordering and revisiting of prior experiences. Post your current or recently interpretation of Si here, even...

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    With it being my inferior function I rarely know when and if I actually use this function. As it being your most dominant function could anyone tell me what it is, and give me some examples of when you use it in day to day life? Ps: My girlfriend is an ENFP. ENFP LOVEEEE

  12. [ENFP] ENFPs with an unusually strong Si... Raise your hand!O

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Okay, so, I'm pretty cautious. I don't like hotels, thrill rides, random weather changes, flirty people who come on too strong (not that I get hit on much, only by creeps on Instagram), and I'm amazing at recalling and reliving past experiences. I'm extremely nostalgic; I enjoy reflecting, and...

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    I'm having a hard time telling wether im introverted or extroverted. I cant tell wether Extroverted feeling or Introverted sensing is my most dominant function. I enjoy going out and socialising, meeting new people, going to clubs, bars, parties and such (18 is the legal drinkinh age in the UK...

  16. [ISFJ] INFJ seeking ISFJ to explain Si to me

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi all, I was hoping some of you Si-dom ISFJs would be willing to share with me your own personal perception of and experience with Introverted Sensing (Si). For some reason, I find Si one of the harder cognitive functions for me to comprehend, beyond what's written about it in Typological...

  18. Si and Ni gone real - Sweeping Dirt Onto A Dustpan

    I just had a really interesting experience with my ISFJ husband. He was sweeping dirt onto a dustpan. What he did was: Make a dirt pile first and THEN actually sweep it onto the dustpan. While he was doing this I thought: "WTF?! Why doesn't he sweep the whole stuff on the dustpan straight...
  19. Does this Sound like Se or Si?

    Cognitive Functions
    From what I've read it seems that most often Si is described as being related to memory and Se is described as being related to excitement or intense experiences. But it seems to me that there must be more to them than that and it's dificult for me to figure out which of these is more me...
  20. Si=memory of Se?
