    I have always had "slow reaction time" and actively compensate for it. An example would be that I have a thing for a safe following distance while driving. I just don't have as much confidence in my ability to react quickly as other people do nor do I think it is worth the risk. IMO, it doesn't seem unreasonable to think there is a correlation between Se being inferior and having slower reaction times. Ni doms tend to be in their head. If you compare that to an Se dom, whose world view is colored by a function so present to current experience, I think on average, it seems more likely that the Se dom would have a faster reaction time than an Ni dom because they are so present in the moment.

    How do you know whether you have a fast or slow reaction time?

    I have no idea.

    I once caught a fly with my bare hand at the first thought I had to attempt it. :p

    Other than that I have been in 16 car accidents, all while 'paying attention to the road.'

    If I am multi-tasking, doing twelve things at once, I am much more in-tuned with everything happening around me, rather than when in a relaxed state and my reaction time drops severely.

    Involvement in sports.

    Example - I am pretty good at tennis when I'm in the back court because there is enough time to assess the trajectory of the ball and some level of predictability to how someone is moving, what they do with their racket, etc. However, I suck at the net because there isn't enough time to react.

    I probably have somewhat average-to-decent reflexes then, going based on soccer. I'm not sure. I'm pretty uncoordinated in general, and most people are a lot more technically skilled than me so it's not really easy to compare.

    This is what I tend to think of. I'm not convinced that a Se user always has the fastest response, and surely the best, to an immediate call for action. I'm thinking about my ISTP co-workers and friends....I find Se is more about being in the moment (as opposed to Si)- getting lost in it, enjoying whatever it is in front of them, not necessarily having an ability to pull away from it with such ease.

    The ability to react in sports- I'm constantly thinking if that's truly type related. I know great ballers of all types.
