    I thought she asked about how to develop the sensing function.

    Most NF's I know don't even see windows.

    Hence the need to clean them?

    My advice would be to take up contour drawing. That'll really teach you how to slow down and pay attention to the present moment.


    Blind Contour Drawing Lesson

    And Wolfy, thanks for the links -- I had no idea the Se chapter of that book was available online. Cool!

    We did upside-down blind contour portraits one day in middle school art. Had a great teacher.

    A little. More importantly, I eventually became really good at drawing. She taught us that when you're drawing a still life, or portrait, you draw exactly what you see, not what you think you should see. With contour, and other methods, such as looking "through" the object to get a better idea of value (light/dark) and proportion.

    Yes! This is why I think it's the perfect exercise for someone who wants to develop their Se. Really forces you to tune in to minute details of what you're experiencing in the present moment.

    I would imagine my youth as a relatively serious aspiring artist has something to do with people perceiving "S" attributes in me.

    Oddly enough I always have this picture run through my min of a man standing there with his hands slightly lifted to the sides. He looks forward, sighs very quietly before taking a deep breath, and closes his eyes. His head drops reluctantly in unison as a surge of power much like the outer layer of an atom bomb emits from him pushing everything away with it in one swoop.

    I always wondered how that would look on paper but I have zero artistic talent.
