    My earliest memory was one of loss, naturally enough. (Enneagram 4 here. :-D ) I remember scrabbling around looking for my dummy (pacifier), it was apparently on the day my dummy was taken away from me. I can remember searching all over my little world for it, particularly under my cot. I can remember feeling growing distress, but I never asked for help. I don't think I was quite two years of age.

    I've often wondered about the role of emotions in memory recall. Flipping through the rolodex of my earliest memories, it's apparent that the things I remember vividly are the things that made an emotional impression.

    Interesting... I thought memories were supposed to be replays of living experiences, which are from first-person, but I guess that's not entirely true. :/

    I now have a theory that people with a poor memory for physical content or physical details have a rejected Si or Se.
    I have wondered that myself for some time now, too. I think it could easily be plausible. However, I seem to want Se more than Si, which always makes me feel INJ-ish. It's weird.

    Time period... That's a little tough. I don't know how wide ranged Si is to be honest. If we say that Se tries to keep all sensations equal (thus them wanting to experience all they can) then it would encompass a wider range of memories, but it isn't so much depth (big distinguishing factor between I and E is breadth vs depth). Vivid memories seem to be Si... Because I as I read a head Marm's mom would be lying to keep intensity, but not accuracy of truth. So I'd say Se would be time spans. While Si would time points.

    NOT LYING...exaggerating. I also use exaggeration, over-statement or hyperbole in my own stories, and I do it on purpose a lot of the time.

    Think Big Fish or The Curious Case of Benjamin Button or Forrest Gump..

    I meant to put those in quotation marks, sorry.

    I think exaggerations are extremely fun. And purposefully misunderstanding, or rewording someones statement to you. For example:

    My friend told me he had a Thai Chicken at his house ready for him to eat (A Thai Chicken is a kind of pizza). I respond "You have a live Thai chicken in your house? To which he then took and said yeah it just arrived today. My friend is an INFP.

    I dunno I used to exaggerate for attention as a teenager in my verbal story telling, I think I sometimes thrived on attention or drama, and then as I got to be an adult I recognized fairly early on that I thought exaggeration and hyperbole in written story telling was hilarious.

    It also can add an entertaining "unreal" element to the story that makes it more engaging or appealing...it's not quite the same as lying, because a person who lies makes shit up that never happened at all, and usually to cause trouble IRL.

    Liars are to be feared, exaggerators are there to entertain.

    See I think exaggerators can be far more dangerous. It is in a way a lie. And something that is intense already should not be taken even further. I will agree it's very entertaining and perhaps more acceptable, but I think at least with liars once you find out that they are such you can label them (Not PC... Sorry), but exaggerations can entertwine themselves with the truth and make it much harder to discern, especially if you only slightly alter the story. So my advice "Go big or go home!". Both are dangerous, just from different approaches.
