    True, good point.

The main thing is that they are less inclined to introspect first. Doing this makes them feel happy and energized too.
    I actually disagree with this.

    To me, being unobservant is not about being an Se- or Si-user. Rather, I'd say being unobservant or absentminded is a trait of extreme introversion. (So I suppose it would technically be more for Si-doms than Se-doms).

    As an Si-dom, I don't really do what is described in the OP in that I don't tend to lose things and complain about not finding them. It's that I'm just not aware of my surroundings.

    Sometimes I'll have conversations that go like this:
    Person: Hey did you notice blah blah blah??
    Me: No...
    Person: Oh well what about what so-and-so was doing??
    Me: Uh...no...

    Other times it's like I forget what is happening or what I just did. In my chemistry class, I've hooked experiments up backwards and dumped acid behind me because I forgot there was still liquid inside.

    Edit: Oh and just now I was looking for a bottle of pop everywhere in the kitchen and I couldn't find it. I went upstairs to do something, came back downstairs, and found it sitting right in the center of the table. D'oh!

    For a sensor, I'm really quite a terrible one.

    Hm. If that's true, then it must be a particular kind of introversion. It's not an extreme kind by just MBTI standards, because my mom and probably some of the other posters aren't. But interesting thought. Maybe it's different things for different people.

    That's understandable though, most of what people do is completely uninteresting and not worth noting. I really dislike those loud people who seem to think that everyone is interested in what went on, or, (fuck me), their 'thoughts'.

    Good thing I am one of those people.
    '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 it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
