    Probably the most detail-oriented with hearing. I'm pretty picky when it comes to musical instruments, timbre.. kind of bogs me down actually.

    Good and bad: Can mistake touch for closeness.

    Probably with weight training the most. After years of learning about the body I can feel how it is working, what muscle, the balance. Baking was bit like that too, after I learnt the ins and outs it was more of a sensing kind of thing.

    I notice my Se especially when I am out in nature. I get a rush from all that I perceive- a bird peeking it's head out of a woodpecker hole in a dead tree, the serrated edge of leaves on a plant, meadowlark calls, the texture of bark, how dirt smells after rain. It makes me feel incredibly alive and capable and wholly myself. I always feel better outside, moving- provided that it's at my own pace and of my own volition.

    I stepped away from the whole mbti for awhile, after once again deciding that I was an INFP, and this is something I observed about myself. Yes, I can hold my own in the world of Ne, but being in the moment, living in the real sensual world, is when I feel happiest and most at peace. The Ne stuff is more like me going along with the intuitive types I know... but hell, I'd rather construct a replica of the Eiffel Tower on top of my son's birthday cake any day over discussing transpersonal psychology.

    I love to walk anywhere... in the woods, through the countryside, in a small town, in a city... I feel totally in the moment, totally in the space through which I am traveling. I love to look into shop windows and I am fascinated by architecture and by gardens. The variety of colors and shapes of trees and flowers... the color of the rivers... the color of the sky... it all fills me with joy. I like to smell the flowers' aromas... it feels right to have my whole world within touching distance.
    After I walk a long distance, I get hungry and thirsty and the food tastes so good, so fresh, so many sensations...
    These are some of the ways in which I experience my Se.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Well put, WT. It's like that first sip of beer when you're hot and thirsty and it's icy cold and holy crap, it's so good and amazing; therefore, all is right with the world.

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but:

    ISFPs, how do you deal with break-ups? When you are the one that ended the relationship?
    Do you only end a relationship when there is no way back?
    Do you move on soon?

    Interesting... do you play anything, or is it just in music you listen to? And I think I actually know exactly what you mean about mistaking touch for closeness.

    So, like you know it so well it almost becomes a part of you?

    I'm pretty okay with it if I'm the one ending it, provided I didn't make the decision impulsively and then I may very well end up regretting it. But typically, I can move on very quickly. If, however, I am the end-ee, not the end-er, hoo...
    I do not deal well at all. (Unless the person continues to be my friend, or at the very least, gives me a reasonable explanation, then it's much better. In other words, if we can get along, cool, if not, hard. I have never understood why ex-relationships can't continue to be amicable, that's what puzzles me.)
