    Oh okay. I must use Si more than Se then, because I don't think I would ever not remember something similar that's happened to me in the past when I'm experiencing something.

    Well an SP would remember, they just wouldn't value it as much. They prefer to look at each situation as it arises. Their strength is being able to tactically handle situations as they come up, which is why they are stereotyped as being wilder or as taking more risks.

    Okay - I am very clear I have Si rather than Se, and I'm not even an SJ so maybe I can help you here (but maybe not since your Si is in the dom position...). When you have Si you want a depth of understanding about particular subjects. Depth over breadth. Part of what you enjoy about the things you know is that you know extensive details about one particular subject that you love. Or you can listen to your favorite songs over and over again, and have some of the same favorite songs for years, because part of what makes the song so good to you is the memories and sensations you have associated with that piece of music. What is understood in depth over time is more meaningful to you.

    nice post, also!

    i'm currently trying to figure out if a friend of mine is ISFJ or ISFP (or maybe even INFJ, i guess).

    I think it's kind of hot when they (the male version) really are right. I'm like "Yes, Daddy."

    Otherwise it can get annoying, like oh shut up.

    Goodness! I don't think I'm that rigid. Unless you're just an idiot.

    Bahahahaha!

    That's funny, although I would vomit if a guy reacted to me like that (mommy).

    I'm on my dinner break so I don't have time to respond to everything that you've said Marm but I did want to comment on this one thing:

    Probably because this coming from you, but this is really cute!

    I knew there was a reason I liked you so much

    Good posts you've made though, I'll respond when I get home from work later.

    My mum is an ISFJ, I'd say the biggest difference between us is Si is a major reference point for her, she will always refer to what she has experienced personally before considering anything else.

    Me: "Mum help I just got bitten by a shark!"
    Her: "I know how you feel, I was bitten by a mosquito once..."

    Well exagerration obviously, but that's the kind of basic gist of it. Whenever you talk to her everything is always being dragged back to her personal experience. Anecdote is everything.
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    well. they're not usually like that. it just pops up here and there. usually when there's a situation they've dealt with before. mom will actually just give me directions on how to do things. i just sort of watch her like "er... okay..." cause it's kind of weird to hear her direct for me. but i think that also has to do with enneagram 2 (and grandma's a 1w2), and moving to 8.

    What I find odd is that both SFJs and NFPs do this. It's like Si combined with either F function...lmao.
