    Default NTs-kinesthetic memories?

    So today I was sitting all alone on a conference call awaiting my two deliquent ENTPs who did not call in. I wrote them the following email:

    Like grass swaying in a silent field
    Quiet reflections on many days past.
    golden sun caressing the tops of each toe;
    smell lingers deep, taste pungent and sweet,
    I am submersed in the grass.

    Thus are my senses as I sit on Bridge line 1 all alone awaiting your loving presence….



    Humor usually works well. Anyways the second ENTP shows up and says Do you actually feel the things you write about-in the poem?" She meant the sun and grass and so on. I was like, well of course.

    She said she did not and it was weird.

    So NTs-When you think of kinesthetic information-can you actually imagine what it feels like?

    Of course I can. My N is at nearly 100%. I feel imagination more than I feel the real world.


    And your joke made me laugh.


    I just noticed the title of your thread. That's something else, isn't it? I don't remember the way things smell, taste, etc. I didn't read your poem and then remember something from my own life. I imagined how it might feel anew ... constructing a new scenario. I don't do nostalgia.

    oh wait-you are totally right. I don't usually remember things-I just reinvent the kinesthetic things as a new scenario. So I can imagine sitting a field feeling, tasting, smelling, touching. Visual things less so. Verbal very little.

    She can remember whole conversations from the past. I remember very little verbal content.

    She can remember more visual content than me, and imagine more visual content.

    She asked about a boy I dated if I remembered what he looked like nude and then imagined him that way, as she does that. I said no, but that I both remembered and imagined how he felt, tasted and smelled.

    i think its more about imagining what it would feel like. the understanding of the feelings themselves and why are they there seems like a more difficult task.
    like the uhm.. feelings in your poem?i can quite accurately imagine the situation and how it would feel.
    also, there was a joke? where? i dont get it

    but yes the kinesthetic memories, most vivid...

    No, I don't have that type of memory inbuilt. Although, I thought that the adjective associated to that phenomenon was synesthetic, since kinesthetic seems to deal more with movement of our own body.

    Go on - give us another chorus of I REALLY LOVE ENTPS thats the reason I'm such a total prick about them.

    As for the original questions, yes I do much more than visual or auditory

    I don't tend to notice those things even at the time when I'm experiencing them, so I'm not likely to remember what I didn't notice in the first place.

    But if I do notice them for some reason then yes, I do remember them very, very vividly. And I can, in quiet moments, put myself back there in my imagination as vividly as the freakiest dream, whilst wide awake.

    I'm not sure why I would notice them in particular... I know I do sometimes, and it tends to be when I'm somewhere alone, and content. If I'm not both of those things, I'm completely oblivious to all but the most essential sensory information.

    I am used to grow habits out of pleasant sensory experience, like for example:

    This tuna pizza doesnt taste like a salami pizza.
    Or thats no yoghurt, it doesnt taste like chocolate.
    Or thats no brunette, never ever

    Ah, ENXPs, bonding over Si and mutual distrust. It's a beautiful thing.
