    Se looks awesome to me...I watch my XSFP sister and son with envy at times. I often try to one-up them with my Ne but there is this slight lag time thing and I'm never quite as sharp they are.

    Don't forget you get a hot body and access to many sexually desirable mates
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Anyone who says that all Sensors experience things in-the-moment is full of crap; Si is not in-the-moment at all. Only Se is.
    How is si not in the moment?

    How I experience all my functions, generally speaking, is in either the future (planning), the past (understanding precedents), or the realm of the abstract (ideals, concepts). Immersion in the now is just not something that happens, in the same way that it does with Se. Closest thing I get to that, as an ESTJ, is a focus on things in the now that need to be fixed (Te/Si), but even that is more of a focus on a goal, and a conception of "wrong". It's focusing more on my own thoughts, than on the world itself. If it's in the moment, then I'm viewing the moment through heavily tinted lenses. I don't get clarity of vision like you guys (presumably) do.

    All of this sounds useful.


    @whatever
    Thanks. How was sales?

    It's all biased, though, is my point. And, for lack of a better word, impure.

    I'd also be interested in hearing about whatever's work, though; I don't know a lot about Se in practice, except that apparently it involves being "in the zone".

    Threads like this are just strange. Se doesn't exist in a vacuum.

    So you have a strong desire to understand the past? From what I understand about Te si is that they tend to have a soft spot for wanting to experiance pleasent sensations much like si te. Te si users are very much resourceful in how they manipulate the world around them and thus they are primarly stratetic thinkers.

    You guys have any ideas?

    1. Energy (that in most situations is a hindrance to standing still as required by the modern world).
    2. Appetite / gluttony / greed ...
    3. Noticing unimportant details nobody cares about.
    4. Noticing clothes quality and appearance and stuff.

    I feel depressed thinking about it.
    I don't think gluttony is related to Se.

    Se would seem the function most considered "cool" by society. In fact I was surprised by this thread, because just the other day I thought of starting one asking "how did a world with large majority non-Se doms, come to desire Se as the coolest function".

    In any case I love Se and wish mine was better (I believe in Shadow Functions).

    Good appearance is a large part of success. Co-ordination is not only very practical, but brings confidence, ability to be "out there" in the world and deal with whatever comes up, calmly, to sync with people effortlessly.

    Plus it would help me get laid more if I could dance better and do impressions of ppl and shit.
