    What if you end up necking with someone?

    Sometimes I like to go outside, too. Feels weird; but there is just this weird urge from time to time. And then...yes, either looking at things or just take a walk or something.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    There is school, but the destination is inside.

    A few nights ago you could have spotted me driving up and down a busy street asking louses for directions.

    Come to think of it, most of my Se moments probably occurred while being the passenger on a road trip, I'd bet. That is definitely when I just get obsessed in drinking in the scenery that's coming at me, and absorbing it, without trying to season it with any other thoughts.
    Yep, road trips, and travel in general. Catching planes, riding trains... when the journey's started, I'm in there, in the moment. It is a tiny bit like cruise control, but with the eyes wide open. I worry deeply about long distance travel before it's underway, but the minute I step out the door and get started, then I'm in the ride. It's a kind of relief, actually, something like a holiday, and whatever happens is what happens.


    I know this is true, but even writing it just now freaks me out a little.

    Today it was overcast and wet but without heavy rain, so I decided to hop on the bike and roll around the city for an hour. Definite planned Se-excursion because work was over for the week and I'm a little ahead of my usual schedule. And needed a day out.

    I got a big, big kick out of seeing the familiar streets and structures in this new light. And it's a very familiar ride too, so whether it was the change in the light or just the day, I noticed a small street I've passed a thousand times and did the "follows exciting physical impulses" thing and took the detour. It opened onto a very cool little tree-lined, low-building'd lane with people and small shops. Big fun with the clean air, the solid but luminous overcast, the wet road and the evening setting in.

    Were I into such things, I guess I'd definitely try to catch what I saw in some media way. I don't though because the chill in the air, the feel of the bike, the essential, moving 270 degree field of view--they wouldn't be caught.

    At one earlier point I'd stopped by the river and found I actually couldn't hold still to look out over the water. Literally had to maintain a traversing viewpoint or felt I was missing the essence. That was silly so I started riding again.

    Freakishly difficult to catch that stuff. There's a constant motion to it, an immediacy that means the moment passes too.


    I have some kind of thesis that Se being fourth means the top three functions have some role in this kind of outing, but I don't know what. What I do get is a definite feeling of expansion. Embiggening. I don't know why.

    I like to walk around in public places where no one will notice my existence. New York City is where I like the most. :-)

    This was really interesting. I added some photos to my profile that captured some of those Se moments discussed in this thread. I can recall the feeling when I look at the pictures.

    I think for the same reason I enjoy reality shows that focus more in the relational dynamic (as opposed to contrived competitions), esp. Beauty and the Geek. A sort of acceptable voyeurism.

    sounds like me only reverse, I'm an ENTJ and like to walk around and be noticed, whether its for an interesting outfit or something intellectual I've
    decided to throw into conversation, but sometimes I just like to walk ar-
    ound crowded places and poke around and look at stuff, things I might
    need or be able to use, I'm always finding books or other learning materials
    I might need in a roundabout way when I'm not really thinking about it
    and see something that reminds me of it, then it clicks in my head exactly
    where to go look for it, then I find it. If it wasn't for the extravert thing
    I'd wonder if I wasn't an introvert because I can be in a crowd of people
    or talking in a group conversation, but I'll be off in another train of thought
    day dreaming or just letting my imagination wander about this or that.
    Sometimes when I read I get such a vivid picture of it I see it as vividly
    as a movie complete with special effects as they're described in the books,
    and some characters I find myself really relating to even though we made
    different choices and our 'stories' turned out different I guess there's a
    metaphor in there somewhere so sometimes I don't mind just staying home
    and acting out parts of plays and things.

    being an NT of any NT type can definitely be interesting, even if you fit in
    socially or whatever and don't stand out you still feel like an oddball some-
    times because of having to check everything out and be interested in every-
    thing and never really being able to conform to one setting and other peop-
    le's expectations like other people do so easily because we're just not pro-
    grammed that way

    Se? I do the whole watching environments and people thing (loved hearing about those perfect irrigation ditches, etc.), and I'm ISFP... makes sense.

It happens sometimes that I'll, basically, just look *up*. Literally, neck craned back, and look *up*, to watch the buildings from a new angle, seeing the new lines and shadows, and the highlights of lighting. It disappears if I stand still. It's seeing the shapes glide past as I keep on walking that does it for me. I have on occasion stood outside my building just looking up at it to see it back lit by the sky and faintly lit by street lighting.

    It's a little bit mystical.
