    Default Si PoLR, fussiness, and hypochodria

    It makes sense to me that the PoLR would be something that you have a difficult time controlling... it's always either too much or not enough. It's something that we are not naturally inclined to be reasonable about, one way or another.

    People typically talk about a Si PoLR in terms of not taking care of one's physical health, not taking off work or visiting a doctor when they should, not giving consideration to asthetic qualities, etc. That would be the "not enough" end of it. What about the "too much" end of it? I could see someone who doesn't know how to properly moderate Si become overly concerned with possible health problems and discomfort.

    I wonder if some people with eating disorders have Si PoLR.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    They imbalanced brain chemistry, often too much seratonin. But Si PoLR? Hmmmmmmmm I've never considered that, but it sort of makes sense in some cases.

    Makes LOTS of sense.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Simply, they do not think it is important. But then they see the consequences of not taking into consideration and compensate by .

    Wait, is that common knowledge here?

    For ENFj's it seems to be trying too hard to live up to some ideal, sometimes unrealistic.

    Yeah... not having a sense of what is or is not good for you at present is definitely a Si PoLR thing. They'll look to books about nutrition and medication and supplements in place of "simply" eating (what Si types would call) reasonably. (What's so simple about that, anyways???)


    Also, for women it could be never ever deviating from set colours/styles
    yes... they'd want to stick with what's tried and true and feel uncomfortable taking "fashion risks" or wearing really trendy thing. It's business clothes (preferably) or athletic clothes (a comfortable second) or jeans and a T-shirt (if they're certain that they're supposed to be dressed casually).

    A PoLR is supposed to be a phobia, so someone with an PoLR would be unwilling to use it consciously. However you may be onto something: because a person does not wish to consciously use their PoLR, they might do stuff that makes it seem like they are using their PoLR function, when in reality aren't thinking of it, just trying to imitate a functions results. Basically faking the function. This is in addition to HA.

    Is there any evidence to suggest people acting like this? Is there any evidence to suggest ENxj's acting as the way Joy described?

    This reminds me when people sometimes think I'm dressed up for some meeting or special occasion, and then I surprise them when I tell them that I am dressing just as I normally do. Then I will have some people saying that my hair looks like I have just got out of bed when I feel like it's just how it looks like daily. Or how my Delta Te+Si friends will tell me how I need to change my clothes or that I look uncomfortable in a certain outfit. My friend who I speculate is ESTj even once said I was dressed for the wrong century . Even though I am rather sure I don't have an PoLR, I can relate to some of the LIE's fashion problems.

    Just because I'm a thinking type doesn't mean I'm not an idiot.

    The PoLR is a conscious function. It's just not one that's valued. It's one that you resent being expected to comply with, seeing it as unimportant.
