More stuff on the inferior function. Has anyone learned to integrate their Se with the rest of their dom-aux-tert functions? So to recap Se, its an awareness of the 'moment' and the compulsion to ACT on it. And by integrate, I mean to incorporate it into everyday life s.t. its not so passive-agressive on/off binge/avoidant. I personally hit the gym everyday for this reason but this hardly constitutes as engaging in new sensory input.

Other activities that people have recommended in past threads:
*Hiking/going on walks/jogging (interacting with nature)
*Wine/food tasting
*Swimming (do or die?)
*Rock climbing (see above)
*Driving/riding motocycle (not exactly cheap these days)
*Shopping (see above)
*Tennis
*Painting / arts and crafts
*Playing an instrument

Furthermore, only some of these possibilities constitute 'effective' use of time. And by effective, I mean to be used in conjunction with other functions. e.g. Driving may serve an ulterior purpose of simply getting from A to B (Te). Jogging as self-reflection (Fi). Tennis as human bonding + stratagem (Te+Fi). Painting as symbolic expression (Ni+Fi). Playing an instrument as expression (Fi). So... how do we effectively hack Se in our daily lives?

And no axes or ice-picks please.

I associate motorcycles with Se, actually. You don't realize until you are on one that there is no barrier to the olfactory sense, good and bad.

I'm learning to play western classical violin, which requires that I focus on exact notes, tempo etc. You have to be completely present, mentally and physically, and pay attention to detail. That's how I use my Se, to relax.

I am an artist. Painting, sculpture, drawing. I also do a lot of creative writing.

I practice fencing and saber. (I enjoy competition, especially with someone I respect, I use that as a means of showing affection. (Any competition really. (Parenthetical statements... oh boy.)))

I enjoy improvising lyrics, although do this rarely.
