    Sorry. I have no clue as to what you are referencing. Or how it pertains to my quote?

    Don't underestimate the power of hustling well and looking good. I'd say an SP has an advantage over many in those areas (though Ti helps).

    In any case I would ask you, is it rather that your values don't like the way a business would ask you to apply your Se, as opposed to them not having any use for it?

    Not much, really, because most data is presented in a non-symmetrical format and you have to construct a theoretical paradigm to fit it neatly into, iron out all the kinks, and rework that structure every single time you happen upon another bit of information. It's like constantly translating into another language and back in your head. Maybe it's more interesting but it's also more time-consuming and your framework isn't always right because it sacrifices accuracy for the sake of symmetry.

    Based on my ISTP brother, Se perks:
    - Being natively in tune with the atmosphere / environment
    - Having exceptionally good balance, both mentally and physically
    - Being able to fluidly transition from one state to the next
    - Being able to understand, capture, enjoy, and reproduce purity of sensation without conceptual trappings
    - Excelling at improvisation in almost any area
    - Living in the here-and-now

    Seconded.

Like a lot of things we evolved with to keep us alive, modern society downplays the usefulness of Se, but it's just as relevant when your driving a car or doing some other thing that requires focus on the task at hand and immediate surroundings.
    I think it is irritating that modern life often forces people to repress their energy but sports are always there to help balance that out. Also as far as gluttony/greed/etc. goes, throughout most of human history (and indeed in many parts of the world today) we have not as a species had things so far under control that these could become common problems. I think the best thing is to recognize the basic drives that can lead such issues and direct them towards productive ends, as well as counter-balance them with a healthy concern for and generosity towards others.
    Yes. I could use that...ALOT.

    I think you may be trying to find your place in this world. You don't have to be like everyone else to do that. Appreciate yourself for who you are, including your Se.

    I love Se. I notice things a lot of people miss, and I accept sensory data as it is in its raw form, allowing me to remain objective (until I put it past my Fi at least!) to concrete details. I see things as they are, not as they should be, could be, or once were. I think on my feet and am a good problem solver. I am naturally coordinated and I believe I might have an increased ability to truly enjoy sensations for what they are.
