    Default If I was a stapler, where would I be?

    I know an IEE who looks for things like this. Is it related to Ne?

    Sounds like Ne+Fi. The IEE is relating to the stapler as if it's a person (Fi), and trying to think of the possibilities inherent in that person (Ne).

    Staplers are like little people that like to staple things and they have places that they choose to go.

    Sometimes they get bored of sitting on desks and decide to jump off the back of the desk and hie in the shadows.

    This isn't bcause they don't want to be with you, it's just because they want to know you care enough about them to come looking. (staplers can be quite manipulative, but it's ok)

    Sometimes a stapler may run off with one of your work collegues, it's usually with the shifty guy who won't make eye contact with you, because he's seeing all your stationary and office bits behind your back. (just because he can't keep a hold of his) - There are many ways to deal with a stationising scumbag like this, I usually find sleeping with his wife helps.

    There are many other places that staplers like to hide and you can ask the stapler's spirit for guidance on where to find it.

    Y'know... I think you could actually find staplers using this mindset. It involves abstracting all the behaviors of other things into the stapler, but it could work if the stapler is considered complex enough... and as people are complex, the stapler will probably not be underestimated.

    Weird thing is that this guy is actually pretty good at finding the stuff he's looking for. It seems that he imagines a day in the life of the stapler (or whatever it is he's looking for) and then gets ideas on where it may have ended up.

    Interesting. I'll have to try that next time I lose something. I usually try to imagine the possibilities of what *I* would have been doing with the stapler, but to imagine the possibilities of what staplers are generally used for could work better.

    Anyway, when you describe it like that, I have no doubt that it's a heavily Ne sort of thing to do. With, like I said, a bit of Fi thrown in for flavour.

    When I'm searching for something, I usually disregard what exactly I'm looking for (except some considerations for size) and search the general area for places where things could possibly become lost. I suppose I haven't often experienced things being lost through use - usually when I've noticed something being lost, it's been something that hadn't been used in a while and was just kicked around without regard for what it actually was.

    I always hate when people recommend "trying to remember where I last saw" the item I'm looking for. What makes them think I'd still be looking if it were that simple...?

    I bet y ou don't like that you lost the item even more than people saying that to you.

    The re-tracing my steps suggestion annoys me because if I'm actually complaining that something is lost, I've already more or less done that.

    The last thing I lost was my cell, and I ended up finding it under a bush near the path from the house to the garage. I had been focusing my efforts on calling it when I was in the car and house. If I had lost something that didn't make noise way under the bush like that, I'm not sure I ever would have found it.

    If I'm going to help, though, I usually want a central point to search outward from.
