    Randomness is not my thing so I'll pass on that one. Well if you give me an example of what kind of parts, I'll see if I can think of something to build from it. Though it's not the kind of task that would excite me to be quite honest.

    And, as I said I never focused that much on the "mechanic stuff" so I don't know about picking apart something in front of me like that. I mean, I can probably do it, I just don't usually try. Well, I'm sure I can pick it apart, as for figuring out how it works, that will have to come only after the "playing around" part. This would however be a more interesting task, even if not easy, than the random one.

    What does that tell you? :p

    It just seems that you are more in critiquing and analyzing concepts than you are analyzing what your senses are telling you, though I could most definitely be wrong.

    This is true :p if I'm looking at environment/being involved with environment, I'm not really doing much analysis consciously. Things just are. If I'm not focusing on the environment as much then I will be happy to analyse details of concepts and details of experiences.

    Note I learn particularly well and quick by fusing together experience and analysis. Either I have a previously done analysis and then learn it (the thing the analysis pertains to) truly from experience, or I can try and analyse the experiences after they happened. Not *during* the experience, I just don't work like that, I don't like to detach in that way. Well perhaps for a few seconds here or there but not more. E.g. an insight could come that way though this isn't often. I'm more fine with detaching (into my mind) afterwards.

    But what does that tell you about in terms of MBTI? Functions etc... ??

    The reason me asking was because you were coming off sort of Ne-Ti more than Se-Ti, but I don't have any concrete evidence to back that up, though the whole "Not during experience, I just don't work like that" seems like a bit more intuitive like than sensor like.

    Also those two tasks (build up shit from random parts vs pick apart and understand workings of things), what types/functions were they about? :P I guess the latter was Ti+Se or just ISTP? And the former?

    Do S types analyse during the experience then?

    I have no clue, I'm not an S, but I would think so. I'd say that Se might be more inclined to be analyzing actions they are currently making, but you might need to find an ISTP or an ESTP to figure it out.

    But if they are analysing the actions during the action, how are they paying attention to the action in-the-moment as well? You can't be detached inside your mind on a conscious level and paying attention outside at the same time also on a conscious level

    I'd think that some activities like trained fighting especially would require instantaneous usage of Se and Ti. Se would pick up the current body movements of the opposing person, feed the information quickly to Ti, which would then quickly make a logical decision to combat the other person's strike based on what makes sense to counter the person.

    I don't call that just "analysis". I call that "thinking on the move" and I do that just fine. It doesn't feel like detached analysis because it isn't really detached Maybe I dive into my mind for a sec or two but that's it at most

    Maybe the sort of unconscious process that I talked about and which results in me figuring out how to manage an object after playing around with it, is also this?

    Also... what about the question here?
