    ....something that lives well up to my username, traveling to one ear and exiting out the other.

    Not the best thing to be lacking when you live in an environment that favors it. The stress levels... oh how they surge with prolonged exposure to Si.

    Si is the only one of the 8 functions that offers a symmetric thread title when trying to define it.

    It's called a palindrome. And no one can say what it is. Maybe it really doesn't exist...

    Wow, impressive vocab skills. Are you on the committee for writing the latest edition of the Oxford dictionary? If not, you should definitely look into quitting your day job. And if Oxford isn't hiring, there's always Webster. Or dictionary.com if you're really desperate.

    The reason I'm not an ENTP?
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Why the sudden rush of emotion? I didn't intend to bring that out.
    No, I don't work for Oxford. I'm just well educated.

    That irony is pointed out in the MBTI literature as well. I think introverted smelling could be like using gingerbread candles when taking a bubble bath, and it just not being the same without them. I think Si internalizes specific sensory experiences and recreates them. I think it is also a function that can tell when something detailed is out of place, or will go to great lengths to get the correct type of cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving dinner. My impression is that it is a function used in a lot of music performers I interact with. They know exactly how a piece of music should be executed down to the last nuance and recreate it as such. I notice it in some of my students, who quickly internalize sensory aspects of playing piano, and if it is internalized incorrectly, it is harder for them to correct it, but if internalized correctly, it remains more solid than average.

    I think the character Monk uses strong Si-Te when he notices every detail at a crime scene and can describe any minutia that is out of place. He then switches to Ni when he says, "I don't know how he did it, but that's the guy".

    Lol of course INFP thinks that I was being emotional in that post. No emotion; just innocent poking.

    Well, to be honest, I was being a bit of a jerk. Sorry about that. I'm in a mood today.

    On the other hand you were being pretty sarcastic.
