sensing

  1. Why are intuitives more likely to be interested in MBTI?

    Cognitive Functions
    Intuitive forums have the highest number of people compared to sensing types. What kind of forums are you more likely to find more sensing types that intuitives?
  2. Eat sleep, sleep eat..

    Socionics Forum
    Hmm, I haven't seen a food thread around here, which is bizarre considering I as a Si dom love to cook and to eat. We should have a food thread, maybe share some delicious recipes? Idk if there is anything more relaxing in this world than cooking. Man I want to build this thing..
  3. Is this inferior Si?

    Cognitive Functions
    When I become sick, I get stressed because I feel like I miss the opportunities. Same thing happens while I'm doing something I don't want. I'm also kinda forgetful about my sickness and I may sometimes use self-destructive matters. While I'm sick, I may become aggressive and angry. And finally...
  4. The ISFP vs INFP debate

    What's my personality type?
    I am confused or whether not I'm a INFP or ISFP(might be ISFJ). People see both Se and Ne in me and I see both in myself. I am dreadful at sports and am pretty clumsy overall. However, I do enjoy a lot of traditionally Se/sensor things. I like challenging myself by eating spicy foods, I love...
  5. billie eilish mbti

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I think she gives a lot of Se vibes because of how she dresses and her pictures but I watched some interviews and I started doubting it a little. This video is her in a vintage spree and it's 4:35 minutes long, so it's not too long. I noticed that she is mostly talking about stuff in her...
  6. Am I sensing or intuitive, and which specific type of S/N am I strongest at?

    What's my personality type?
    sorry I sound completely stupid in this video, but anyway here goes. Also I intentionally tried to make the video ~20 mins long max so there's probably a lot more that I could have said but I don't want to make you watch an entire hour long video.
  7. Real life examples of how each of the 16 types can use the functions in healthy ways?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've read general summaries of healthy/unhealthy versions of the 16 types and have my own speculations about how those can be demonstrated by specific behaviors in real life, but I'm curious to see how other people have experienced healthy versions of any of the 16 types-- specifically, what...
  8. Knowing Why and How: Ni or Ti?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've been thinking of Ni as detailed, organized ideas and possibilities; Ti as personal understanding of why/how something works. But some people have been describing Ni as understanding the why/how as well. So if someone is primarily interested in understanding why/how something works, are they...
  9. Examples of Healthy and Unhealthy xxTJ? and xxTP?

    Cognitive Functions
    I have a handful of friends and acquaintances that I actually know well enough, and all of them are xxFJs or xxFPs (at least the ones who know their MBTI, the ones who don't I can definitely see the Fe and/or Fi in them). Thus, I believe I have a good understanding of what healthy and unhealthy...
  10. Inferior Functions vs Unhealthy Dominant/Auxiliary Functions??

    Cognitive Functions
    How can you tell whether someone is using an inferior function or an unhealthy version of their dominant/auxiliary function? For example, if someone is emotionally unstable and consistently avoiding certain things in life in order to preserve their state of well-being and keep a happy emotional...
  11. Selfish and Loving Versions of Each Judging Function

    Cognitive Functions
    Selfish versions of each judging type Te = it's all about making my own plans to make everything work the way I want it to work, using my factual knowledge (Si) and/or ideas (Ni) Ti = it's all about using whatever I can understand on the go to make anything work the way I want it to work...
  12. A Difference between Intuitive and Sensing

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I’m not confirming that this is 100% reliable for typing, but I think it may help for those in doubt. Some behavior that I have noticed that points out the difference between the intuition and the sensing is: Intuitives like novelty, and any type can be interested in novelty, but intuitives...
  13. Is reading a book (or reading anything in general) an example of Ne or Ni?

    Cognitive Functions
    Is reading a book (or reading anything in general) an example of Ne or Ni? Or does it have anything to do with cognitive functions at all?
  14. Is it my actual type or have i been in disintegration forever?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Hey guys, i've been typed as 1 since 2016, and it's astonishing that the main type hasn't changed since. But recently, some people here and on discord have suggested ideas such as this one that have caused me to doubt my classification. @Arrogantly Grateful (please offer any insights)...
  15. [ENTP] Do you find sensing feeling types boring?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I don't know if i find them boring or they look always bored to me
  16. Real-life examples of Ne and Ni?

    Cognitive Functions
    I understand that Ne "gathers" abstract ideas and possibilities spontaneously, while Ni "organizes" abstract ideas and possibilities and is therefore more focused and orderly than Ne. But what exactly does it mean to "gather" or "organize" abstract ideas? What are some examples of how these look...
  17. Ne, Ni, Se, Si, and attention span?

    Cognitive Functions
    Does having a strong Se function contribute to having a good attention span and maintaining focus for long periods of time during lectures, reading, and anything happening in the external environment? How do each of these perceiving functions contribute to focus, concentration, problem-solving...
  18. Dominant and Auxiliary Functions: how they work together?

    Cognitive Functions
    Just curious to see if my current understanding of the dominant and auxiliary functions makes sense/is appropriate: Lead Judging (focused on understanding info/ideas) Dominant Te = goal is to interact with the external world to understand unbiased (often objective) reasons With auxiliary Si =...
  19. what is actually S-N? The drawing line-

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Okay, i kept thinking... if sensing is focused on details and their senses and intuitives on symbols then i don't see why sensors can't be interested in the future and intuitives in the past. personally, i meet this person, i get this feeling/vibe 'i'm going to have a lot to do with this person'...
  20. What is the real logic behind the ordering of the functions for each type?

    Cognitive Functions
    The ordering of the functions for each MBTI type doesn't always make sense. For example, why would someone strong in Se be weak with Si? Se is about noticing the details in the external world, Si is about remembering details in one's internal world (aka, memory). So why would someone who is a...
