    I was first looking at your avatar befor i noticed the link. I wondered why he was looking down on everyone, why so angry.
    Then i noticed the link. Is it possible for anyone to look at the Eiffel tower without seeing it as phallic, domeneering, and power prooving?
    Really?

    Yet if you look in LifeTypes under INTP, we are prone to making statements that such and such is "obvious."

    Intuitives also love to point out irony.

    whereas reviewing past conversations comes automatically when I'm under stress.

    Yep I would say this is a classic difference between Ne/Si and Si/Ne. I'm not sure about the imagining the space cafe thing specifically, as that may happen to anyone who is bored waiting at a McDonalds

    I was wondering how anyone could possibly automatically see those things in the Eiffel Tower unless they were recently in a literature or sociology course

    Maybe because they are sort of value judgements they would come more natural with an Fi influence, and I think of more mechanical things like "if we made the tower out of a stretchier substance it would make the coolest catapult ever"

    But isn't the inferior the one that causes the most isssue under stress?

    There is exactly 0.0% chance that my boss will dream about any such thing while waiting at a McDonald's.

    Eh, I immediately thought of phallic symbolism. I would never think of anything like "if we made the tower out of a stretchier substance it would make the coolest catapult ever" because it sounds like a really lame cutesy joke. I would be obliged to give myself lashings of atonement if I ever said anything like that.

    As a feeling dominant type, I definitely would focus on the aesthetic value first & foremost. What feeling-concept does this evoke, and is it significant?
    There would be an aspect of being aware of what it symbolizes, but I'm unlikely to analyze that as it will feel obvious. The awareness is more likely to quickly become criteria for evaluating it & what it means in terms of impact on people (people in a vague, general sense), which is where most of my thought will focus. The Eiffel tower being a phallic symbol seems irrelevant in this light. It has stronger associations with a romantic view of Paris & what could happen there that will change your life for the better (fall in love, find yourself, become some kind of artist). So to me, it represents a hope & a dream for people now more than fertility, although you could vaguely link those with fertility (new birth, creating something, joining with another person, etc).

    In a way, I will see something as its literal, physical state, because that allows me to remove its assigned function/identity and re-imagine a new one for it. I actually thought that was very Ne. The focus is still on what something can become over what it currently is.

    The downside to this is that inability to just BE in a moment. There's also often a slight discontent with what exists as improvement & change is constantly being suggested mentally. But I don't miss the aesthetic appeal of things at least. I can definitely be very "ooh, shiny!", but then I'm imagining what it would be like if it were a bit more perfect, or I wonder why it appeals to me & what that means, etc.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I get flooded with negative past conversations during stress. Every stupid, embarrassing, cringe-worthy thing I said comes back to me. The rest of the time, the past hardly registers. I couldn't recall most of this stuff if I tried, but under stress, I get flooded by it. This of course stresses me out further, which amplifies the flooding, ... --> disaster.

    This is exactly how it is for me too. Hmm...if you use Si, wouldn't that make you ENxP? Then you would be Si inferior, which could explain why you say normally the past hardly registers.
