    Basically I read or observe something (i.e., data collection). as I'm collecting data, my mind is noting what seems to be out of place with it, from (1) a perspective I think is logical and (2) from the model that the writer/communicator is using, a model I am replicating from their data as I proceed.

    Everything gets tagged and noted. The processes are occurring simultaneously. meanwhile, another task is added to list -- my running assessment of potential issues with what is being contributed, what's wrong with it, and how it could be changed to potentially be correct.

    Another task that is running is "Did I read this correctly?" where I'm trying alternate interpretations of the data I'm collecting to see if something there is coherent or whether those alternate interpretations also are faulty. (i.e., a checksum mechanism.)

    Detail that I can't find a connection for in any of these processes is tossed as irrelevant, meaning i can then focus on the more relevant information. While this can occasionally lead to overlooking something, the payoff is that I can process much faster by "fuzzy logicking" with just the stuff that is relevant.

    Again, it's all happening at once, I don't do it linearly, I'm multitasking from one task to the next and back through, and balancing it all in my head. What it takes in sheer processing power it provides in terms of large-scale coherence of the ideas being presented and what their flaws/strengths are in the big picture.

    Which basically means I do really well with assimilating the gist of whatever I'm examining, understanding the framework being presented, and I do it fast. However, I can lose track of details (since I'm just focused on the concept the details represent and tend to just store the concepts long-term).

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I believe this is my weak Si.. I'm trying to confirm it:

    "Wow, I have no idea where the hell I am. None of this looks familiar. I better turn back. Wait, where did I come from? Okay, I've done this before.. I'll just chill and use the force."

    I often start with a "why?" (if someone else has initiated) or a "ooo that's interesting" if i am initiating. I will then go on to researching, sometimes to back up an abstract idea that i have not fully formed and sometimes because i want to know everything about it and how it relates to everything else.
    The problem with this is i often do not have a real working objective or summary... just things leading to other things. Though i also have a tendancy to stop (once i feel i have gathered enough info) or i just move on to other interesting ideas/things organically.

    Ive always imagined your mind to be like this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfmrHTdXgK4&ob=av3n

    And then you fly in on a magic....erm diamond!!
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    Hahahaha... oh that's just brilliant. I'll take that as a compliment, run with it and ultimately... save the universe!
    Aw thanks.

    Then I'm unstoppable.
    lol, I do the simulations too. Is this Ne or Ti that does the simulations?

    Ne plays a big role on the ''what if'' part.

    Where does Ti come into play?
