    Default Si and hoarding

    My ex-girlfriend is INFP and a hoarder (you can hardly walk around in her house). My downstairs neighbor (ENFP) hoards coffee creamer and continually asks us (her neighbors) for coffee creamer daily. I'm odd because I throw things away because I want my apartment to look like a hotel room. I haven't read of a connection between inferior or tertiary Si and hoarding. I wonder if anyone knows which function or types are most likely to hoard.

    I'd say it's a combination of Fi+Si.

    People with Si as their third or fourth function seem likely to hoard.
    I really like cats and food.

    You may be onto something Diz. My ISTJ brother in law hoards money. Hes one of the richest guys in a small town, but lives in a small house and drives an old car.

    I don't hoard things, thank goodness, but I have a hard time throwing things away because I attach sentimental value to the silliest things.

    Interesting. How did you come to this conclusion?

    Don't kid. I actually do that.

    Inferior or tertiary Si users seem likely to attribute subjective meaning to sensory objects (Si) and end up going overboard in doing it since it's not a function they use very often.
    I really like cats and food.

    Whoa! I never thought about it before, but I know two INFP hoarders and one ENFP hoarder.
