So 'round these parts, Se always gets the rep for being the "sexy function" and Si is painted as an uptight librarian.
But we all know about those uptight librarians!
And Si is undoubtedly much more Romantic than Se.
So what is awesome & intriguing about "your Si"?
Some fun facts about Si users:
- A Si type is more likely to be Willy Wonka, an eccentric wealthy benefactor & collector of exotics, like small orange people from the Amazon. - TRUE
- A Si type is also more likely to be Van Gogh, an eccentric & spiritual painter who lives in meager surroundings & captivates people with his blurry blobby, subjective reality long after he dies unrecognized in poverty. - FACT
- Okay, those two are probably INFP. - PROBABLY
- Which means Si types also have some Ne in there, which takes all of those arbitrarily collected facts & sensations & creates something massively innovative or hilarious with 50 layers of meaning ahead of its time that Se types will copy in 50 years as the trend du jour. And at the very least, the ISTJ will offer a wry & humorous observation which simply & accurately skewers reality or the ISFJ will tell you charming, rose-colored stories of the old days that never really happened - SPECULATION
I tend to experience Si in retrospect… In the moment, everything is kind of dreamy, blobby & atmospheric (VAGUE), and I focus on my impressions of facts over the facts themselves, but later, in reviewing them, they'll strike me more, and highlight something I had never considered before. In thinking of the same fact again at a later time, I continue to see something new about it, and my grasp of what is real about life deepens.
But a few things are striking in the moment when the metaphorical light hits them just so, and then again & again you can think of these things & feel exhilarated, like the sensation funnels down into the toes, and you sort of luxuriate in its nuances & examine its various angles so a new aspect of it can emerge, gleaning every bit of its reality by reprocessing it until it starts to fade out.
Tell me about your cool Si!
