Hmmm well yes.. I score quite high on Se. I have a body and I like to use it.
Se is the natural companion of N.. N is like a radio without an antenna if you ignore your senses. You just pick up a lot of static.
I'm not deaf, dumb and blind to the "outside" world solely because I happen to identify with intuitives. I prefer my intuition because it feels most comfortable to me, it's my comfort zone that gives me support. But whenever I feel like it, I also take immense joy in taking in everything that pops out to me in the world, whatever comes to me through my senses. By "popping out" I mean that while I frolic around with my head in the clouds, sometimes it comes to a sudden halt when something very vivid catches my eye or just brings me back to "reality" to witness and thoroughly enjoy the "wonder" for a while, may it be something that can be seen, touched, heard, smelled or tasted. And then I continue on frolicking along with my intuition. And I can most definitely give a detailed description of it, but as words are limited, they can never fully convey the feeling I get and it can be something very powerful.
I slowly start stretching my muscles and feel them tense to then relax, warming up my body, becoming more bendy. I start the music and feel my body yearning to move to the beat. Slowly, I make a figure 8 with my body, twisting my hip to move forward while the other goes back. I move them around, stretching out my abs, side and backmuscles, feeling the strain and at the same time release. My spine feels free once more. I gradually speed up the figure 8's, making my hip circle and move more fluidly to the music, building up tension. My arms automatically start accentuating the movement, feeling as if they are threading through water. I close my eyes and feel my body move, stretch...unwind. My muscles sigh in relief. The music beckons to change the movement...I forcefully push up my hip and drop it again, faster and faster, lifting my chest and softly twirling my hands, feathering my fingers...Then I hear footsteps. My So is home. My body tenses up. I turn of the music off and return to my computer in the couch as if nothing happened
Hmm, I once tried to do that in letter to my father about the beautiful town of Salamanca where I studied for two semsters: the smell of fresh fish in the market hall, the ringing of the church bells, the warm stones on a plaza seca at midday and all that, but i always ended up returning to abstracts.
That being said, now that summer has finally arrived I love to switch on my senses once in a while and feel the warm wind on my skin or the grass between my toes and I have always loved the sound of rain. But as I said, I switch my senses on for some time. My natural state is something of a seperation between mind and body (with the head way up in the clouds).
The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Neither love without knowledge, nor knowledge without love can produce a good life. - Bertrand Russell A herring's blog Johari / Nohari
We are all sensors. The N/S divide is basically just a vanity for people on this board to give them a unique identity.
If a person is so disconnected from the world that they just can't feel the grass under their feet, then they may be suffering from PTSD or some other mental disfunction. That's how I see it, and I'm pretty 'N' based on test results, whatever that ultimately means...
With a finger, a touch, gliding along the curves. Feeling the texture and the suppleness pressing against my raw finger. Exploring like a little kid in a theme park, every little corner, every little bump. Then a tickle, it turns to shock, as my hand retracts momentarily and again presses down, I observe and curiously test. A bit to the right... Then again to the left. A tickle again. I feel the kinetic energy of the light convulsion flowing through my arm. My curiosity becomes excitement. A new discovery...
Then I continue to play around on the same spot, it doesn't tire me, it doesn't wear me out, finally I am met with a stern frown. "What the hell do you think you are doing?".
Back to reality.
Long story short, I have Se, I rarily use it, when I do it is overwhelming.
