Sounds interesting highlander and good value.
A good example of Si would be when an individual can recall fact based detail with incredible accuracy which appears to be photographic memory. I worked with an attorney once who could recall an entire file he worked on to the extent that he could tell you exactly which book and page specific relevant information was located. And I am talking about the kind of information which most people would have had to take multiple notes to keep track of, it was almost as if his mind was organized like a filing cabinet and you requested a random piece of information from one of a hundred files in the cabinet and his mind flipped through the cabinets found the file flipped halfway through it and found the exact reference in a matter of seconds. It was really quite amazing (at least to me).
Eh...that might be one example, I suppose, but I don't really think it's that great of one. The population of Si users in the world is enormous, and they don't all have photographic memories. It's usually not quite as impressive.
I'd almost wonder if it's better to describe Si as like Ne, but with things that have already happened or with stored knowledge. (In fact, Si and Ne are paired functions just as Se and Ni are.) You aren't going to be able to observe the introverted functions that well. They're directed inward after all. I would say that Si is used in relating stored information to other things, but then everyone does that...
I didn't mean to imply that all Si users have photographic memory. I'm not even sure the person I originally referenced actually has a photographic memory. The point was to make a comparison between and illustrate Si stored memory recall and what would appear to be photographic memory. And from what I have read about sensing introverted as a cognitive process those who use the function as a dominant process give the appearance of being more intelligent than they actually are because of their ability to retrieve information based in past experience quickly and with high levels of accuracy. I'm not writing a book on cognitive process so whether or not you thought it was a good example or not, is actually irrelevant to me.
Si seems to me to about identification, what is taking place what is happening within the self and within the experience of the out side would.
A subjective experiential phenomenon cognitive identification cognitive recollection pertaining to gathering information and identifying information.
The gut the hart the head may-all have expertise actions that may be developed via Si as with, all eight cognitive processes. If that makes sense.
But don't listen to me read a book on the subject, I am working on understanding it my self and can only shear that I think is taking place.
I've always seen Si as a cross-comparison machine, constantly checking that things are matching up to a subjective impression of experiences of 'what should be'.
The process is often recognisable but where it manifests isn't.
Interesting question,. i have been thinking after today being challenged by a frustrated mind set intj, questions and statements challenged me to manifest innate understandings.
The process where it manifests from? there are some basics understandings codified in the structures we both meditated upon. it seems to me to be well explained via am impression abstract structure that is reasonable within its metaphorical like ness to the actual of our sheared experiences.
the circle of the enneagram reminds me of a field as like a continues string, i can think of it as a frame work scaffold system a flexion of wave energy activities. And within that nano vibrating flux is the oscillations of selfs phenomenological experience.
So we have codes and patterns that we have codified in the endeavour to manifest a full science a map Human-Psychometrics. And our very own bodily structures or knowledge of the medical and anatomy of our physiology.
There are structures and pathways between the codes within the modes we utilise in understanding the MBTI Enneagram Hole Brain Model and Number Patterns.
i would not suggest that a full framework understanding of psychometrics needed for transformational work at the individual group and social activity level is out of reach. My interest in the enneagram and mbti and other structures has always infused by the knowing that authentic synergy development is posable, by authentic i pitch the level at levels 1, 2, 3 of the levels of development. Basically Level Three Of The Levels Of Health/ Development (Riso,Hudson) LEVEL THREE - The Level Of Social Value.
But anyway Si and where it manifests from Body/Mind/ physics chemistry electromagnetic source. Yes you are correct where it is manifested isn't recognisable and if so it is not discussed locally smug laypersons on these discussion boards.
what i do know is that the I , E , P , J ,, S - N - T - F , S&N - T&F , Point-Eergy , Subtype , tritype , Hole Brain Type , Tri-Fix , a couple of my models , work together in patterns as like a structured framework mechanical mechanism. My gut feeling says that chemistry genetics and a science of electromagnetic energy and other fields collaborating will yield a testable out come a synthesised model of mind within a machine. Some time of but not impossible for the curiosity of the Human Mind.
