It's odd; I will have a feeling about the person. Like, I always 'felt' her nervous energy; then it's something that makes me want to ground it in reality. Then it becomes me looking at the present detail to check if my idea was right.
Ground it how and what way? But looking for present details seems like Se or at least some kind of extroversion. It's like when I am reading someone's post because they wanted me to type them and then they ask why I think that type and I go blank, because I don't have concrete answers to provide with usually. I can have a strong vibe of "this person is X type", but needing to go back and look for evidence to support it isn't always something I prefer doing because usually it's just that; an incredibly strong vibe of someone's type. Se would be going back and look exactly for what details that actually triggered this impression in the first place, what impressions that seemed important to me at the time and thus also provided this vibe, and then on top of that, I need to logically reason why I think so. I rather not to.
For example, a Dr. came to me...I automatically felt like he was going to be of no help and was there for formality. No real reason, then something goes "Oh, look at the way his body language is so defensive".
Another was a staff there. I don't know what makes me think it, but she again always had this trust factor. It seemed she wasn't hiding, aside from her duty--while the other was reluctant. I would then think back on it and possibly find WHY I had that feeling. Sometimes, I don't know why. But it was correct; she indeed was more receptive.
It seems like it goes in order of: my instinct (person is giving me this)-->anchorage with observables-->tossed or proven correct depending on the test. Step 1 and 2 are not very conscious.
Vibing is not a conscious act, not. Going back to look for concrete details can be unless I spot them right away. It can also be a conscious process to go back and backtrack my impressions. Sometimes I can recall right away what I thought gave me what impression, sometimes not.
I have tons of feelings on my own, but I am very affected by others emotions. Whether or not I respond snappishly or warmly depends on the situation.
Is this not IEI-Ni? Perhaps LSI? It does bug me when people point out logical errors to me. For some reason, it's infuriating and embarrassing, but I don't act on it. It's more like "OMG SO STUPID!"
You mean logical errors you yourself performed? Doesn't sound like logic in ego. Criticism aimed towards one's ego elements makes one take it less seriously, because logic in ego is where one is comfortable psychologically, especially if it's one's base. One can however experience embarrassment, shame and so on if someone points out something regarding one's super-id or superego. Your emotional reaction seems more like the immature/childlike reactions people have concerning one's inferior, similar to my emotional outbursts where I just declare everyone stupid. I think it's interesting also that your sense of stupidity seems directed towards the self. I can experience this, but if someone points out an error I made I will most likely just correct it and move on, and heck, even feel grateful that someone bothered doing it because it was something I think I shouldn't slip on myself.
Despite my desire to be organized and efficient, it feels somewhat like a strain. I will organize my entire room only to have it somewhat dishevelled later.
I think there's an external organization to Je, though I am not sure where else to put this in any context.
It feels like I get snapshotish when I'm looking for anchors to reality, if that makes sense. "Why do I feel this person is trying to manipulate or is really sad" etc.
That makes sense to me, yes. I think I do the same but for different reasons. When I need to actually study and look at
reality, it feels more concrete and snapshot-ish.
Another thing is; I am bad with distraction--but good at focus. For example, I'm good at writing (not here lol) and I always have to tell people; please be quiet or I can't think.
Sounds like introversion since you seem to describe a need to focus on your own internal content. The external is disturbing you. Not to say that extroverts don't prefer quiet atmospheres, but I think they are less susceptible to feeling that external stimuli disturbs them, and some might even find it stimulating e.g. Pe.
If someone is watching me do a sensate task--let's say a chemistry experiment, I will feel overwhelmed and will be more prone to error.
Doesn't sound like LSI given that Se is creative and this is therefore an element the LSI feels pretty comfortable and confident in.
Another example, I can do math (I have a degree in it) but having my professor stare at the paper as I did it made me go blank. I rarely go blank, but when people watch me, it's not as efficient, unless I tune them out and sort of put my paper away from them. At work, I used headphones because the constant conversation was more distracting than soft music.
Don't relate to the part about going blank if my professor would stare at me, and what I was thinking about sounded maybe something like this:
4. Extroverted logic
IEIs have limited endurance in awareness concerning methods to achieve their purposes without wasting any energy or producing unwanted side effects. This creates a feeling of frustration and inadequacy. They do not value the importance of this area, and it can lead to painful consequences.
Taking care of intensely detailed work that is required to reach their goals, like managing finance or being pragmatic in business ventures, will exhaust their sense of concentration and they will find it frustrating as they continually encounter mistakes and things they had forgotten about or inadvertently ignored.
IEIs dislike having the details of the process--rote facts and statistics--thrown at them, giving more weight to an intuitive understanding of how the events within the process culminate inevitably in a certain result. They will distrust and dislike bossy people, and will avoid people who will assign them routine work like chores. They will even avoid their friends and family when they expect that they will be assigned such work, and do not enjoy fulfilling daily chores.
They dislike rote routine and do not give much attention to what others may view as the practical aspects of life. They may seem oblivious to objective reality, lost in their "dreams." This causes them to periodically lose track of their belongings, making them feel rather inadequate. IEIs will be overly stressed or even counter-productive in an atmosphere where speedy organization and efficiency are forced apon them.
As for listening to music, I always did that when I was still in high school and we had maths class. I couldn't concentrate otherwise because I can zone out music and it just becomes background noise I don't pay attention to, but it's much more difficult to zone out chatter for some reason. Perhaps because there is a variability to chatter (frequency, volume) that music doesn't have. It's much more even.
When stressed, I will often try to find a place with as least stimulation as possible (dark room/in blacklight/no sounds). Sounds, lots of people, even visuals become too much. If I stay in them even if severely stressed, it feels like I float away. It goes away after being in said quiet room
Haha, OMG. That's like reading what I wrote when I have my panic attacks I thought were initially related to being HSP or similar, but now I genuinely think it's inferior sensation. I have this as well and it usually happens in very public environments with lots of people and stimuli so sound, noise, light, smell and so on. I can't take it and I become hyper-aware and it starts stressing me out like hell and I just need to get away ASAP or I'll have a mental breakdown, really. I could literally just sit down and cry if it's too prolonged. And yes, in a sense one could say it feels like one is floating away though to me it felt more like I am stuck outside of myself and I can't get back inside my own head. Someone literally forced me out and now I'm locked outside and I can't get back in though I desperately need and want to. It only becomes better once I arrive home where it's quiet.
I don't see LSI though you could always chat with @soppoxo who self-identifies as such (and I don't see any reason to distrust that typing based on what I've seen) and see what he says about his type. Maybe that helps.
Just so we're clear, I do not have autism/asperger's to any degree of clinical significance as per doctor.
I don't think it actually affects Jungian cognition, anyway.
