LOL, debating me must be a push-over for you. I couldn't agree more
You, specifically? Oh, I love conversations with intelligent and perceptive folks like yourself. There's a rewarding reciprocity to it, which is a bit LACKING when you're dealing with an idiot. (Not that I've ever dealt with an idiot before, and especially not on the internet, let alone this forum. Naturally.)
There has to be a difference between the Se attention to detail and the Si attention to detail. Look at Jennifer's example earlier with her ESFP son. He noticed SO many details in his surroundings. I don't think that's restricted to nature walks. Wouldn't that also apply to a detail attentiveness in, say, accounting?
Someone with Se can spot details. However, as someone with Si, I'm better at recalling details. Seeing details and remembering details are two different things.
For instance, an ISTP has Ti/Se. They take in detailed information about their surroundings through their perceptive Sensing, but focus on Ti to sort it out. That's backwards, I know, since Ti is dominant. Si focuses more on remembering details, and then using Te to structure the Si user's world. That would mean they'd prefer a job where they are required to remember a lot of details, but are then asked to provide logical structure to something. Those are two varying approaches to the same field, accounting.
That clarifies things. Si is an interesting function because it has to do with internalizing the external, concrete world. It has a stabilizing quality as well.
