Sensory Introtims and laziness
Si base is a white function, so it's inherently subjective, and also inherently directed at the self. (Seen with EXIs self-directed usage of the creative, compared to their mirrors, who hop from invitation to invitation, mirite )
SEIs are Negativists. They see their and others' situations as being inherently content, and thus only register negative deviations from that state.
SLIs are Positivists. It follows logically that they see their and others' current state as being discontent, and thus seek to improve upon that. Feel free to adjust this to reality, btw. (But I think it neatly explains the SLI pessimism. "Look at how horrible everything is, won't you help me figure out how to make it better? ")
So, SEIs are displeasure-avoiding, and distraction-seeking (since distractions don't cause deviations in the present state of contentment). SLIs are _____? (Need input!)
Why this post? Very selfish reasons...
I'm seriously struggling at school. Schoolwork is a source of displeasure, so I'm avoiding it, through distractions. Then, an assessment comes up, and all my avoidance comes back and beats me to death with a +9 Hammer that, really, leaves me needing stitches. Recognising this pattern leaves me anxious, but not enough to actually go out and study.
Needless to say, this sucks. Halp.
School is fine, actually. The only days I don't go are when I simply lack energy to even get as far out of my room as the bathroom.

Best of luck with the therapy.

I also wonder about depression, but I doubt I suffer from it. When I made that post, I was particularly anxious... I think the enneagram basically covers that. "In case of emergency, break down."
Now? Still not doing anything, but no longer fretting about it.
Your DNA is mine.
I'm a sensory introtim and I am not lazy at all.

Hopefully Archon will make some amusing comment about milk and cookies.
Wouldn't you technically be a sensing introtim?
