    Default Sensing and Intuiting

    I have a question.
    Let's say an N and an S both touched something. How does their experience with touching something differ? What does one think in comparison to the other?

    I think the Sensor may feel the something more vividly than the iNtuitive, but the iNtuitive can feel something just the same as a sensor if he or she isn't constantly looking for possibilities and patterns.

    Maybe an Ne user would touch the something and look around to see how it is connected to the environment and see possible patterns.
    I don't know about Ni though, it is more unconscious, so maybe an Ni user would estimate how much the something would be worth to him or her in certain scenarios and how it fits in the framework built in the user's head.

    An Se user would touch the something and be able to describe many more details about its physical characteristics than an Ni or Ne user.
    I imagine an Si user would touch something and immediate recall items that felt or exhibited characteristics of the item at hand.

    I don't know though, I'm not an expert on cognitive functions.

    I can only really speak for myself, but as someone who uses essentially no Se, if I'm touching something, I'm probably not "in the moment" regarding my experience of it*. I'm too distracted by context, past experience, and connotation to be able to feel it for what it is. Only if I really, really focus, can I zero in on the tactile experience.

    *I do not consider myself to be an "in the moment" person at all.

    Actually yes -- even a hot stove. That's more of a shock/instinct reaction -- something that doesn't take any real experiencing of the moment. Like my body running on autopilot.

    That is actually a real experience though. No? Pure, with no chance to conceptualize it.

    So, you're the person who doesn't realize you just caused a car accident because of using your cell phone while you drive?

    That was me, giving you the middle finger salute.

    In the moment.

    The future is for the unafraid.

    Huh -- yeah. You're right. Interesting. (Shows how much I understand the concept of "sensing"...)

    Oh, that was you? Didn't notice. My mind was somewhere more important.

    Apparently I have delayed reactions to what's going on so I guess not in the moment, or I'm not processing things veey fast. I dunno whatever your interpretation is right at least that's what people believe

    I don't understand how when someone looks at, let's say, a styrofoam cup, that they see anything other than a cup or something to rub your teeth on, or something to chew on when you're done drinking from it. Wait, I just gave more than one possibility Is that intuition?
