    Default peripheral-direct

    Somthin's buggin the crap out of me. Do sensors prefer to use directed or peripheral vision, and whatever way they prefer are they better at peripheral than intuitives? And of course do intuitives prefer to use peripheral and are they better at it than sensors?
    I'm leanin on sensors being better at direct vision and intuitives being better at peripheral vision.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    If what i'm leaning on is true, then sensors can easily spot an intuitive. Unless the intuitives are aware of it, in which case, intuitives will then fake out sensors.

    erinavery? You are an (N). Do you think your peripheral is pretty good? When you use it (possably as a social tool, but not when talking directly with someone obviously) how does it benafit you?

    I've thought about this before I even had the vocabulary of "sensors" and "intuitives" and one thing that came up is that people who are more "up in their head much of the time" (pondering, reflecting, seriously analyzing) probably use their peripheral vision much more, because it works with less conscious involvement, like it seems to work more in the background (sub-/un-conscious). People who are usually primarily engaged in the physical present, probably use their direct vision more than the "deep-thinkers", because it's no big deal for them, because most of their consciousness is engaging the physical anyways. Their peripheral activity probably takes a more background position. This is just from observing my friends, family other people I've spent time with and of course myself (I think I'm a sensor, but I spend a lot of time in my dominant Ti). I'm not very well-versed in all this MBTI stuff, but I wouldn't mind seeing where thread goes too.

    Quinlan? You are an (S). Any good at peripheral?

    yes...i'm a n so...i couldn't understand if you meant that metaphorically or not...haha

    but you mean literally how is my peripheral vision? well...honestly...probably not that great...certainly no better than average. i just really don't pay a whole lot of attention to what's going on around me unless i need to...so there are times where someone could run through the store in head to toe pink feathers and i might not notice...is that what you mean?

    When one is not thinking deeply or all the way into the physical world but just crossing on a ped-xing multytasking with a sqirrel fight, late bill, window left open, achy joint all at once? Does a sensor have a better shot, or an intuitive?

    this kind of makes sense too...that could be true. i really don't know! now i'm going to be trying to figure that out and have people test me...or maybe it wouldn't work that way.
