    I guess it's the Se, when engaged with whatever connected to environment, yes.

    ps: just to be precise about the Se-dom thing, I haven't decided about Ti > Se or Se > Ti or whatever, but Se-dom does make quite some sense

    I'm only a Se-aux, but I'm spaced out often enough to have a reputation for it (although everyone does it sometimes). I'm only "in the moment" occasionally. I'm not often in the future or the past, either, though - just lost in my thoughts, which I guess still counts as "the present" in some way.

    I don't think it's directly related to type. A higher "spacing out" frequency than normal is one (of many) signs of ADD, though, which seems to be loosely associated with both Se and Ne. As much as you can associate a disorder with a personality description, anyway.

    Yeah, if I'm not doing anything, not involved in a convo or anything at all, and got bored with looking at stuff around me, I will be in my thoughts as well, and almost none of it is future or past, so I know what you mean

    I thought only Ne was ADD-ish... Se is in the moment so how would it be spacing out?

    Se can resemble the hyperfocus/distracted/bouncing around part of ADD (the most recent "shiny thing" having 100% of the focus, and spacing out with regard to everything else), and Ne can resemble the absentminded/"lost in thought" part...many people with ADD will have both behaviours, so it can confusingly seem like Ne and Se at the same time. Not to say that J types can't be ADD too, they can, but ADD symptoms can be confused for (or exacerbate) Se/Ne, and vice versa.

    I have pretty low Ne (both as an interest and talent-wise) and moderate Se, but I'm an exceptional space case. I guess I'm just spacing out in a different way than an Ne user would.

    Ah I didn't know there was hyperfocus for ADD? Going to check that out. This article seems good I see myself in that quite a bit.... though I wasn't that crazy about it as a kid. I did have good focus but I notice it more now.

    By spacing out I meant something else though, I meant what someone else talked about in this thread, spacing out of the activity they are supposedly involved with. That's what I don't relate to.

    You mean you're inside your mind right?

    Yep, all the time! I think maybe an Ne user would be lost in thought thinking about different things than I usually am. I will occasionally think about philosophical or "what if" type things but mostly it's things that are more concrete/relevant for my life. It looks the same to an onlooker, though.

    Ahh you're ISTP... I had a question about Ti+Se, can you please check here: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...31#post2224431

    Read back until post #45, my specific question is in post #62 (currently last post), and more general question, do you relate to my use of Ti?

    (Of course post in that thread if you do have an answer Thanks!)
