    Good point with Si and telling stories.

    No wonder I'm so bad with the details in my story-telling.

    Thoughts?

    Happens sometimes with an ENFP I know. When she wants to work something out she starts telling the story of what happened. Awesomely gappy storylines, really like a bunch of non sequiturs strung together. She'll clarify if I ask for some detail, but she'll get frustrated and angry and talk over me if I try rushing some conclusion into the storyline. Obviously (I presume) real life recollection is Si, and I'm tentatively assuming that the foot stompy frustration is a confirmation of that: Si being fourth for her, it's earnest when engaged and not so polite.

    I assume, for her, that story-telling is Si in service of Fi. Fi getting it's "facts" straight for proper assessment of what happened.

    ...I know it seems crazy to others but I just remember big picture type of things.
    I get this all the time. I often have a general impression of something, especially some story, without the capacity to "back it up"

    I can relate.
    Whenever I try to explain something I feel like I'm making it up because I have no backing for it. No details. It's funny because it makes perfect sense in my mind, but when I go to explain it I'll start questioning myself because I'm like wait.. how did get to that idea again?

    Or even take it to the next level and go ahead and fill in the gaps to the people listening while still trying to figure out the details because i'm 99% sure that what i'm explaining is accurate due to my confidence in using the tool of the big picture.
    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?

    I don't know though, I don't tend to tell stories but when I do, it's in a very matter-of-fact way. Unless I know the person really well, I'm just not comfortable telling a story. But when I am, I guess I do tell them often - but they're true stories, usually describing some sort of past event, in detail.

    I totally relate to this. I'm good at story-telling, especially if it's something involving friends or other people, because I'm really good at remembering details. I have this whole story about when I went to the movies with a friend, and I remember what restaurant we went to before the show, where we sat, what I ordered, what we were wearing, who was with is, and everything that happened after. Nobody else who was with me has high Si so none of them remember nearly as much as I do.
