    Default I miss my Se.

    I've noticed I'm using a lot of Ne over Se lately. The thing is, I was looking at some writing I did a year ago, and my sense of detail is much greater than it is currently. I realized that Se + Ni helps me formulate my ideas in a way people can easily understand.

    So, how do I exercise Se more? Take in more detail from the outside world?

    I'd suppose so, try to notice the immediate detail and actively scan for it, going for the overall sense impressions.. Have fun with stuff.
    "Extraverted Sensor: They are active and crave new experiences. In touch with the immediate physical reality, they enjoy a fast changing environment. Strongly materialistic, they require strong sensory experience."

    So.. this is about translating your thoughts more efficiently to others? Because I bet there are more tricks to do that.

    Sometimes when not enough is happening I'll zone out and get bored, maybe even think deeply.

    Make sure you got out and do lots of stuff and that there is plenty activity around you. That'll provoke your Se for sure. Go to Main Event or somewhere like that, plenty of flashing lights and bowling and laser tag. Something to keep your attention levels up, maybe you just don't have enough input.

    Oh, if you're trying the thing above, watch out for the exhaustion that strikes from too much input or prolonged exposure. The exhaustion will put an end to any Se seeking activities, since everything will become a blurr that passes by and details get lost. But I'm sure you know that.

    That is, if you're truly abstract.

    Se is creepy and you don't need it. You're better off without it.

    Why do you miss it? Are you going mad?

    Let the SPs handle the creepy stuff, while we do the civilized, meaningful stuff. Deal?

    Go out somewhere -- anywhere -- and pretend that you're a security officer or private investigator observing details to report. Look at everything for something out of place, some sign of imminent or recent wrongdoing. Mentally construct the concrete descriptions of people, places, objects and events as you'd write them for your employer or client, removing every trace of subjectivity. Then (and only then), re-write the descriptions with assonance, consonance, rhythm, beautiful metaphors and emotional significance, if you want to keep your poetic sense up to snuff too.

    Um... and miss important details?

    Let them do what they please. I'm pretty sure if they want to develop their Se there's a good reason why.
