    Default INFj Si hidden agenda description?

    I was wondering if the following is a description of the Si Hidden Agenda for INFjs, at least, this is based on myself:

    Sensations are something that really get a rise out of me. I like playing and listening to music, it's definitely a passion, and I was even going to be a performance major in college. It's not rare for me to get really involved into something I'm listening to, and having it affect me mood. I get excited when being exposed to things that feel good in general though, and with time it has gotten more intense.

    In time I've become increasingly picky with food, which is something I never had when I was younger. Another thing, for example, is that I caught myself one time actually trying to distinguish herbs based on the smell and taste in the food I'm eating, and getting frustrated when I can't tell what it is...

    To me quite possibly the best activity that I enjoy doing is relaxing. I like thinking about laying on a coach, while listening to some really good relaxing music and drinking some iced tea. It sounds dumb probably, but I love to think about relaxation at any time of the day.

    When I hang out with ISTps, I always end up doing some sort of chilling/hanging out activity that hits the spot nicely. No agitation, just chillin'. Though I also like playing sports, and I always end up doing that with ISTps as well.

    Also, I tend to gravitate towards people who are touchy-feely, but not in excess. I don't know if this would fall under Si wanting though. I actually remember for some reason when somebody in general touches me, even if it's a bump sometimes. For example, I actually might think about how the difference in height might play out in me hugging someone specific, and how will it feel. What I would need to do in order to make the hug "work", lol. This might all be just pretty dumb though.

    Anyway, I would like to know if this is more or less some aspects of what the Si HA represents.

    I don't know if this qualifies as Si, but the bolded bits I do all the time (maybe a little Ne in the part on hugging?). I'm incredibly non-picky in what I eat though I do tend to develop favorite types of food that I like to eat all the time. I think this is actually the reason that I'm such a Mongo BBQ fanatic. You get to add in all the things you want, mix the sauces yourself, and top it all with a myriad of spices. Then (oh, my favorite part!) you get to savor it. It's amazing how adding or subtracting one thing can make such a huge difference, or how you can get the exact same thing and it will come out different based on how the BBQer is feeling that day. lol, sorry for the outburst, but that's like my favorite food of all time.

    An EII I know like to spend insane amounts of money in bars with girls. I sincerely think it's pathetic, but heck, he divorced some time ago and I suppose he needs a bit of warm up.

    He likes everything related to Si. Traveling, eating and the like.

    I like snow and blue sun and also yellow skies. I don't know if I like rum, but I like pirate ships. I think elephants are good animals in cartoons, but there a bit big IRL, I mean, they can sometimes smell too, no? But they're still cool tho.

    I think it's related to EII's Si HA, yes.

    Haha, I also have some favorite foods, but I've never really tried Mongolian sauce, at least I don't remember how it tastes. Based on what you said, if you're having a bad day, will the sauce taste like shit? I'm guessing it wouldn't be a good day to have some guests over for dinner...

    Yeah, they smell really bad, but I like them a lot. To me someone riding an elephant is a sign of power too, since they are so big. Though lions can bring an elephant down, believe or not.

    I've read somewhere in the forum where Si is related to knowing when to eat, or something like that, which I don't really think is the case. The impression I've gotten of Si is more towards the effect that sensations have on you, or something like that.

    This song really gets to me for example:

    The choral sections to me are so good, I couldn't describe it.

    A lot of it sounds like my best friend - not sure of her thoughts on music, though. She loves to cook. Sometimes she can have a very sensitive stomach, for instance if she's been sick recently she won't eat foreign foods or strong foods in general. She also loves to relax and do whatever comes to mind...

    I feel very similarly with choral or a capella music.





    I can't really explain it either, but it really gets to me too.

    I know essentially what my body wants in order to feel good, whether it more vegetables, more grains, more meats, etc. And I am also very wary about how much sleep I get, and how it affects me. A well timed nap or rest can thwart a growing illness.



    PS:

    Yes, that is very nice.

    No, I like it a lot, to be honest. I think it is relevant. IMO it is sort of Si receptivity. That's why you will probably have good sex with someone who is strong in Si.



    I am considering going into more detail about Ne,Si,Se,Ni interactions, but it is not coming out as clearly as I'd like it to.

    You must understand. I have traveled the land in search of the greatest food, dined in every MBBQery within 50 miles, judiciously tasting only the freshest vegetables and succulent meats finely prepared in a luxuriant bath of sauces sweet, spicy-hot, and sour. The result of fervent researches was the Genghis Khan Mongolian Barbecue, modern day Kansas City Xanadu of culinary delight where your destiny is yours to choose!

    (btw dolphin there are three keys to good MBBQ: a contrast of texture, the right proportion of things to one another, an unceasing daring to try something new and novel, and the tenacity to overcome the occasional misstep or failed experiment [ok, make it four keys then]. Only then will you obtain that sacred wisdom of the sauce!)

    I am really really bad at these things. My Si is really bad. I enjoy being around others with good Si because I do not trust mine at all, and so I can kind-of follow their lead.

    My sleeping and eating habits are really bad. (I don't do enough of either one.) Also I would not say that I spend much time savoring anything, or "relaxing" at all, because I don't trust that it is actually a worthwhile way to spend time. (To go along with this hammocks in general really annoy me.) I do however like driving and will spend hours just driving around by myself with no destination. It helps me to think. This must be related to Si.

    Don't worry, Dolphin, you're not alone! There's a stir fry place here in ATL where you can mix and match just about everything under the sun. If you don't like it, you can go back and have it redone. My friend did it 3 times and couldn't come up with anything he liked! So he had his girlfriend make his instead haha

    Actually, I do have good sleeping habits, eating habits more or less.

    I can see you having a program in the Food Network already.

    It makes sense, though I have been thinking about something else lately about the caregiver/infantile and agressor/victim relationships. It's hard to really explain what I mean, but I do see that caregivers and infantiles can have a certain degree of either victim or agressor behavior. I find the agressor/victim thing to be something gross actually by itself, but I do realize that some of it does happen in my interactions with caregivers.

    I do see that either infantiles of caregivers can lean more either towards agressor or victim, and that also affect the relationship (in the general sense) compability. For one, I don't get along nearly as well with caregivers who are agressors than those who are more victim-like. I don't know if this is making sense...

    I find those male singers a little weird though . The second one is really good, but why do they make those weird faces?
