    Default Discussion of Si PoLR in LIEs-ENTjs

    I thought of a way to describe it .

    For instance, my car. Its inside is a mess. It's not that I don't see it or notice it, or even that I'm not bothered by it.

    It's more that I think, "if I clean it now, I will have to go on cleaning it very often. And again. And again. And again. What a waste of time and energy. On the other hand, I know that if I really have to once, I can clean it quickly".

    That is the Ni > Si perspective (not just a justification for laziness ) -- I am looking at the longer-term implications of having to clean it again and again.

    The same goes for a hair cut. A good way for spotting LIE men: none will be wearing (consistenly) a crew cut. To keep it short, it has to be trimmed very very often, and LIEs would hate to waste time with something that, in the longer run, is of lesser importance. So they go for haircuts that need to be kept less often.

    I think this thought "overflows" into the unconscious so that a few things are not really noticed anymore, but that is the basic explanation.

    I think a lot of types could do this.

    Sure, but I am mentioning the specific reason why ENTjs would do it.

    Of course there will be exceptions, I have typed Pim Fortuyn as ENTj and he shaved his hair (presumably very often).

    My method of cleaning is to not be a pussy and just do it.

    I can relate to that. And lol @ your car being messy. Books and maps everywhere. If your car had some nice desk drawers, everything would have been ok.

    I can actually maintain a daily makeup for some time, but it doesn't take long for me to start finding shortcuts. Like when I have to remove my make-up, I just wipe my eye lids with some soft paper and the next day I can use mascara only on the tips of the eyelashes and some eye makeup and it looks great! I don't like rubbing my eyes with mascara-removing chemicals every single day!... (*excuses, excuses!*).

    Also, I keep thinking of the long-term result. I often walk on the town with wet messed up hair. That's because I go to the gym and I wash my hair after that. There's no point in not washing it, because I'd have to do it at home then. And I can't brush it, because brushing wet hair is extremely dangerous for the hair. I can just feel them breaking! And they actually have a very good hair dryer there, but I rarely use it. Why? Because using the hair dryer 3 times per week is both time-consuming and awful to the hair! Once or twice per month would be ok, which is why I do use it if I'm going somewhere after gym. But if I just have to stop by a shop and then go home, then what's the point? Any person would say, "Fuck it! I'm not letting anyone see me with wet messy hair!". I just keep telling myself that no one cares if a stranger with a gym bag has wet hair, but I care if I mess up my pretty hair for no good reason!

    I've had lots of trouble with my skin. I'll forget to take care of it, then I panic and take extra good care, which destroys the natural balance and my skin gets worse! It was a nasty cycle of bad skin. I The problem is that when I do something, I do it too much! All or nothing. Like when I bought a natural oil that helped, and I started using it 4 times per day!!! Then the skin was too oily and things got worse. think I have it all under control now. I'm using skincare tips that I heard from a really sweet ISFj.

    I let my hair grow quite long, down to around my nose, and then get it cut really short. This is so that I don't have to remember to get it cut too often. Only about 5 times a year at most.

    this is interesting; i haven't cut my hair in at least five years for a similar sort of reason. previously, my parents forced me to cut my hair every so often, which i perceived as pointless and a waste of time. i simply let it grow, and never stopped doing so, although i take absolutely atrocious care of it at present.

    you polr people often make me think i have a polr. i do just about the same thing regarding my car and such things - and i get really surprised (sometimes slightly impressed) when i meet people who keep their surroundings devastatingly clean.

    there's a good reason i have long hair like i do -- well, one, i've heard it's attractive on me, but there's the other reason that it's easier to fool with. i used to have my hair cut in one of those wedge styles where it would need to be kept slightly short/almost shaved in the back. eventually i got so sick of spending so much damned time at the beauty shop i just let it grow out long.

    i'd do about the same thing as kriistina regarding the gym, as well.

    Default Si PoLR in ENTjs

    In part of the ENTj profile by Stratiyevskaya, she describes Si in ENTjs as follows:

    He badly feels the measure for its sensations. Therefore to himit is necessary the partner, who would feel this for him, which would know his tastes, his habits; which previously troubled about what sensations ENTj experiences in following second.

    About himself the ENTj cannot care, and for this very reason concern from the side of partner must be maximally farsighted. It is important so that to the ENTj would be created all conditions for valuable leisure. It does not have value, it was occupied today by work or the whole day nothing made, but even if he recently awoke and immediately he went to watch TV, one ought not to grumble: it means, for it is now necessary "recharging" by some new impressions and by new information. Furthermore, precisely, in the period of the "forced hibernation" the ENTj experiences the strong uneasiness and stress.
    When in his normal, "business regime", he generally very rarely makes possible for himself to rest and to be relaxed. Therefore, if ENTj is already prepared to leisure, it is not necessary to strain him: this greatly irritates him. It is not possible to move him from the place to the place, when he already rests (?), it is not possible to distract him at this moment by conversations or to call to the telephone. (although at the work site he can eat and work simultaneously.)
    Stratiyevskaya's descriptions tend to be rather long because they are descriptions of her observations and consist of a lot of raw data as a result. I believe I have an explanation for some of what's written there, but I'm not sure if including it in a further translation would be taking too many liberties. Here is my "further translation" with a theory about why ENTjs behave the way she describes.

    They are not good at measuring and judging sensations. This is why it is helpful for them to have a partner who knows their tastes and habits better than they do, and who will remember which things have caused them discomfort in the past. Their ideal partner will also be farsighted enough to help them prevent burn out. They're not good at taking time out of their schedule for rest and leisure. They generally don't take the time to rest until they have to because they've worn themselves out. During these periods of down time, they usually watch TV or spend time online. Even then, they may be resting, but they are not relaxing. During these periods of "forced hibernation" they feel a strong sense of uneasiness and stress. They tend to spend their down time watching TV, online, or playing games because if they don't have something to keep their mind occupied, they are overcome by restlessness and are unable to remain still. Because it is important for them to receive the proper amount and type of stimulation while they are recharging, they may avoid doing things which require more mental effort than they desire to expend.

    It's important to understand that they dislike taking time away from accomplishing things, so if they're at the point where they are willing to actually take time out and rest, it's because they have to, and it's not a good idea to pressure them to do things or to be more active. When they're resting, it greatly irritates them if they're asked to run errands or do chores. It may also be difficult to get or hold their attention because being engaged in conversation can disrupt their ability to maintain a favorable level of mental stimulation. They're likely to put off making phone calls and even stop answering the phone to avoid conversations which they feel would be mentally exhausting.

    You have ADD.
    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...

    Default Can someone explain what is Si for ENTjs

    I have a friend who I believe is ENTj. She fits the profile perfectly except for where it says she doesn't give enough attention to her appearance.


    ENTj [+] and [-]

    If your type is Logical-Intuitive Extratim - ENTj (The Pioneer):

    Your strongest virtue is excellent enterprise where new business ventures and projects are involved. You have a very business-like mind and know well how to adapt any theory or idea for practical use. You do not have time for unimportant and trivial matters; instead you are always attracted to valuable and worthwhile aims and projects. You could be called a person of action as you do not let your plans and goals go unrealised. You quickly and easily take onboard new business proposals trying always to bring it to a satisfactory conclusion. You are an optimistic person and believe strongly in the success of every project you undertake. It is important for you to gain experience from many different fields of activity. Elements of risk do not discourage you that easily.

    You can be tactless when talking about intimate subjects and insensitive to others feelings. Your humour often has double meaning. When you are in action you can be rude and show bad manners. You like excessive attention. Organising everyday matters can cause you considerable difficulty. You often have no time for rest. Although you always try to maintain a healthy style of life, you don't take as much care of yourself as you should. You often do not show enough attention to your appearance and ignore advice on this subject. You are not so sure about your aesthetic understanding either.





    She pays very close attention to her appearance, always has her nails done perfectly, obsesses about her hair and takes pride in her ability to co-ordinate her clothes.

    She has worked in various management roles and this type of work suits her very well. She is quite organised in running her house. She is not the best at considering other peoples feelings although she can be blind to this aspect of herself at times.


    I sat next to her in school and she was often 2 steps ahead of our teachers, especially in maths class, often correcting the teachers mistakes.

    I see her as an extrovert, she never had a problem speaking in front of a group of people, in fact she was quite notorious around school for having a big mouth. The teachers secretly admired her for being cheeky.

    I showed her the documentary "The Zeitgeist Movie" and she was able to put holes in their arguments immediately. She can be very matter of fact. I see this as very ENTj.

    We can talk for hours on any given subject, we can go quite deep with things, so I don't really see her as a sensor. She can also be very funny and her wit often has double meanings.

    I'm wondering if I may have typed her wrong, but I can't see her fitting any other type.

    I'd appreciate your help here, this is puzzling me. I feel like I'm missing something.

    shrug, what can I say, except that most of the PoLR descriptions are stupid and terribly off. I've yet to encounter a single ENXj who looked like an unkempt slob.

    I don't obsess over my appearance, but I do pay attention to it, since I recognize its importance in life. People judge a lot by it.

    I tend to dislike the way people dress.

    Overly done, usually. Caking themselves in too much makeup and heavy perfumes that make you fucking gag, etc. I'm thinking mostly ESEs here.

    Generally, I think -val aesthetics are directed more towards personal comfort (how will this feel for me) while -val aesthetics are directed more towards impact (what sort of impression will this make).

    I dunno anyone who eats tofu. Sounds disgusting and horribly artificial. Plus I'd be paranoid about the phytoestrogens in it.

    I mostly just eat meat, raw fruits and vegetables. I don't like a lot of preparation or processing done to my food.

    I think thats aiming a bit high for polr; I just see what food looks like, then what it tastes like. That is all.

    Thanks. That was helpful. So what does it mean to be Si deficient then?

    No, really. -valuers live in a demented alternate universe of aesthetics where stuff like that is actually enjoyable and 'relaxation' is considered a desirable luxury.

    Good advise never trust somebodies description of their own PoLR function. They'll just tell you how little they need it and how useless it is

    You can be tactless when talking about intimate subjects and insensitive to others feelings. Your humour often has double meaning. When you are in action you can be rude and show bad manners. You like excessive attention. Organising everyday matters can cause you considerable difficulty. You often have no time for rest. Although you always try to maintain a healthy style of life, you don't take as much care of yourself as you should.
    ^ That's the worst of what it means to be Si polr though there may be better descriptions out there, the appearance stuff is all relative plus there are magazines, shop assistants and friends for all that it's not like everybody is out designing their outfits from scratch.
    Also Si and Se will approach their appearance in different ways and for different reasons, Si doesn't have a monopoly on consumerism and looking good .

    Yep, pretty much (sounds more Gamma than Beta to me too)

    I cooked a perfectly healthy batch of cookies for a Fe-SEI and she kept going on about how it "wasn't a cookie" and called them sponges. I'm not gonna drown the things in sugar, and the black bean puree I used in there had loads of protein in it, the Te-LIE I know knows what's up

    Flavors, smells, etc., all of those are auxiliary concerns for me; food fuels me on first and foremost, and if making something taste good is a way to effectively get people to eat better, then I'll try to pay attention to it; if I'm just cooking for me, then I'm fine with eating raw oats... sometimes, I'll pound an inch-high mountain of cayenne pepper on my food to get me going if I'm running low on mojo, this really fires up the mornings...

    Clothes too; I make sure I have a sense of presence, and I make sure my clothes are sturdy and functional for what I need them to be. These pants have done me incredibly well as far as durability is concerned; if I go flying off my bike, my pants should be fine and I won't have to buy new pants...

    I'm still blown away that an EII thought that a fuzzy sweater was something I'd ever want to wear

    I would be furious if I got fat; it almost happened, and I've got ab workouts to do now so I can win the war... may my six-pack never expand into a keg...

    Lol I love it when stereotypes exist for a reason.

    Relative to type though, PoLR is useless. For me, will never have any real relevance to my life—and that's okay. Just like I'd never expect to have any relevance for you. People get along fine in life capitalizing on their strengths (IMO PoLRs are more about differences of perspective, not inherent weaknesses per se—though they can become such depending on the context of quadras/types present…).

    You can be tactless when talking about intimate subjects and insensitive to others feelings. Your humour often has double meaning. When you are in action you can be rude and show bad manners.

    Lol, that's not bad actually. Except I'd tend to disagree on having much bearing on pursuit of health (or at least, having very different ideas on what 'health' constitutes)—only because I see way too many morbidly unhealthy types who prefer to eat, drink, and smoke themselves into oblivion for sake of sensory comfort, even when they know it's self-destructive.

    the appearance stuff is all relative plus there are magazines, shop assistants and friends for all that it's not like everybody is out designing their outfits from scratch.
    Yep.

    Also Si and Se will approach their appearance in different ways and for different reasons, Si doesn't have a monopoly on consumerism and looking good .

    To an Si-valuer, comfort, relaxation, and pleasurable sensations are an ends in itself. To a non-Si-Valuer, those things are a means to an end. It helps to maintain your body and health to achieve greater results. While Si-types may comfortably indulge in it, Ni-types tend to see it as over-indulgence, just like how Si-types will see daydreaming and imagination as over-indulgence instead of a place of comfort.

    ENTj's will try to use Si when necessary to maintain their image/health but they will feel very uncomfortable when it becomes the focus of attention, or the predominant activity. This is much like how I feel when everyone in the group is just out there to do crazy stuff, make lots of noise, and mess around in a loud and highly charged manner. I don't mind it, sometimes I do, but I am not inclined to contribute. Fe-Polr here. I develop my Fe enough to use it when necessary though, but I always don't know how it's being received, although I intuitively feel that I tend to make more mistakes than ethical types.

    I agree here.

    Thanks everyone for all the replies. I feel like I have a better grasp of it now.

    Any time my ENTj friend has cooked for me, she would comment on how good it tasted but I thought it was pretty bland to be honest. I didn't say so though. It would be a bit ungrateful after she went to the bother of feeding me.

    There's not much to go on but I might consider SLE as well. Even female LIEs usually aren't fastidious about their appearance.
