- how is the world interacting with my senses?
- Experiencing the immediate stimuli. Being active in the physical world, being aware of changes and opportunities, accumulating experience, noticing visible reactions, recognizing “what is”. There is no reflection, but only pure experience. Seeking excitement of the senses. Extraverted sensing is used in the here and now to explore and adapt to the physical world. Examples include eating chocolates, playing an instrument, or reading... strictly for enjoyment.
- trusting the gut and responding with little input. Reaction mode. Best usage is in the moment and responding to what is happening now.
- there is dark brown, sticky, mud on my shoe
- Seeing and experiencing the world as it comes to you. What just is. Observation of the world in its brilliant colors... The mind as a camera.
- Observing and evaluating what is around you exactly as it is, with no interpretation whatsoever.
- how is my body interacting with my senses?
- Thinking about past experiences, recalling past impressions, accumulating data, recognizing the way things have always been. Relating the present sensory input to the past. Comparing and contrasting the current situation with similar ones. Noticing something doesn't taste the same as usual, being reminded of someone else by a person, associating prior feelings with am image, nostalgia or longing for the past.
- being prepared for the unpredictable. Plan mode. Best usage is preparing ahead of time, i.e., leaving early to have extra time, having a nest egg or something saved for a rainy day
- there is some mud on my shoe that is not normally there
- Recollection of knowledge and experiences. A comparison of past and present. Reading the blue print within the mind.
