    Well, you posted this in the NF section...but there have been at least three T's that responded saying that they also related. And like Trinity said, this is an overwhelmingly N forum, so we aren't really able to see if and how the S folks diverge from this pattern.

    For me, it depends on my mood. When I'm one way, I want 'this' type of music, another way, 'that' type.

    But when it comes down to it, if I find something I really like, I can listen to it endlessly...much to the chagrin of some friends and family.

    Well, I guess the fact that people from all parts of the MBTI spectrum are able to identify with the question shows that appeal to music either really is universal or is totally dependent on the individual involved. I'm just surprised because a lot of people I know in real life want variety in their music playlists and the movies they see, but a large number of people here seem to be perfectly happy sticking to music they know they like.

    And does anyone else experience this feeling that some music is sooo haunting...that it takes you to someplace far away in your head or reminds you of some memory or dream or just makes you feel really really happy or sad?
    Yup, both of the above.

    I've forced people I care about to "listen to this great song - it means so much to me" time and time again, only to have them stare blankly at me, not getting it. I stopped doing that a while ago.

    I am the one who will stop in their tracks and stare off into space if I hear an evocative song. I could be an a noisy restaurant or a retail store, but I will still stop what I'm doing and walk to the speaker so I can hear the song. People close to me have learned to grant me this indulgence.

    I love those songs that give you chills. I'll listen to those all day long.

    When I listen to music, I don't think it'd be far fetched to say that I see flashing colors and pictures, piecing them together as I listen; when I watch a film or read a book, I have a difficult time focusing because my mind is trying to form visual pictures while my eyes are trying to focus on a picture. It's an experience not unlike looking at a rapidly flashing .gif with, say, words and/or several thousands of other flashing pictures. Unless I am able to completely separate my use of the two senses, the pictures flash too rapidly for me to get a grip on anything.

    Suffice to say, listening is a strength.

    Si IS your tertiary function...

    i have a lot of Si dominant friends (ISTJs and ISFJs) who describe music in terms of visuals. my one friend always says images flash in his head when he hears a song.

    Maybe this also explains why I'm afraid of working with my hands.
