    Default IEEs-ENFps, trying out new sensory things and Si

He will stubbornly refuse to eat anything that he knows he does not like, refusing to try a "new recipe" of anything that he did not like before.
    Is this the case for IEEs here and/or IEEs people here know irl?

    No idea, but I prefer to eat something I know is tasty rather than trying something new. I have a few restaurants where there are a few dishes I love a lot, but I hardly tried 20% of the menu. This is very different to my normal "lets try something new" approach. I do not know if it is the same for "Si things" in general, just food.

    No, this is pretty ridiculous. Something like that description is not completely type related. I love trying new food and new cuisines. I was a rather picky eater when I was a child, and now I have a clear sense of what I do or do not like, but I don't go out of my way to have similar things. Likewise, my NeTi best friend isn't picky about food at all and eats everything, and doesn't really go out of her way either. I would on'y say that generally I have moods of what I do or do not want to eat, but I'm flexible as long as the option is something I like or am interested in trying.

    I'm always up for a deep tissue massage!

    Love those chinese massages at the mall

    As far as trying new things at restaurants--I identify with both Ssmall and look.to.the.sky in that respect. I love trying new cuisines, etc, but more often than not, the new dish is really not all that (probably because most dishes out there aren't). The Si-DS comes in I think, when I'm extremely disappointed by it and very regretful. So, through experience, I've come to a point where I will hesitate going for a random dish in favor of a tried and true one when the choice exists. That said, I will sometimes risk trying something new.

    I tried fish for the first time in my life the other day. Never happening again. Trying new foods is not something I like. I'm not iee, but I'm bored...so...yeah.

    I think fish is an acquired taste. It's also a spurious category--there are a wide variety of fish flavours, some distinctly more overpowering than others.

    Which fish did you eat?

    (Sorry, fish addict here, felt the need to butt in.)

    No idea. It was something in sushi. And while we're on the subject, why in gods name was sushi ever invented? You're taking the grossest tasting food on the planet and wrapping it in frigging seaweed...I mean WTF. It's the nastiest thing I've ever put in my mouth. Crab too. Seafood is the devil, gimme pigs and chickens and cows, thanks.

    I'm going to blame this disagreement on genetics and say that my love of seafood is because I'm part-Fijian.

    sometimes IEEs are playfully curious, but there is always an element of weak Se about it, and a sort of Ne-Fi ego reservedness about it.

    For example, an IEE acrobatically poked me with her foot by bending her leg almost around her back to hit my side hip - it was rather unusual, and it was lighthearted and jokey. But it was totally different from an Se dominant crashing or pulling physically. This was much more 'innocent' or infantile, etc.

    I can see both sides in myself. I love to go out to new restaurants and that kind of thing, but I do usually get the same thing at any particular restaurant. Sometimes I'll try something new but that's more the exception. I am really wishy-washy as far as deciding what to get from a menu, and it might be more about indecisiveness than anything else.

    I agree. What I hate about it is it's supposedly really healthy. At first sushi was okay when I tried it, but after a short while it became vomit inducing. It turned out to be one of those traitor foods (the ones that seem to not be sickening, until I try them again weeks later). Anyway I'm often skeptical of trying certain new foods because I'm afraid they will become traitor foods.

    I identify w/ this because the worst thing to me is to be starving and hate my meal and leave hungry! So yeah, I almost always go for what I know I'll like -- however, if I wasn't starving or had other food options, then yes, I'll try some new dishes in addition. I'm adventurous in trying new things usually w/ food, but not if it means possibly sacrificing leaving the restaurant full!

    I am all out and about trying new things, ESPECIALLY food (and the alike). Sometimes it takes me hours to go over the menu and decide what to take. My friends hate that.

    PS. Fwiw, my mom's like this, too. Si PoLR? Maybe not.

    I get rather sentimental about my food, but I will occasionally try new things. I generally stick to what I like

    The texture of raw fish doesn't bother you? Or the fact it's basically alive on your plate? The squishy feeling between your teeth? The horrendous smell? Couple it with onions and omfg

    most fish I find absolutely disgusting and won't even eat cooked, but I like salmon in sushi, and occasionally will eat sashimi. If you cook salmon I will baulk at it though. Fish bothers me.

    Me too, though in time I have gradually become more open to eating fish. What I never eat is oysters and seafood like that.

    Sushi and Seafood is one of my favourite foods. I mean I cant live without meet on a regular basis. But thank god I am in a country where I can enjoy Oysters, Prawns, Tuna, Lobsters and whatnot on a regular daily basis. And sushi...oh boy the amount of money I spent on that thing and I never regreted it ;D. Obviously making it yourself costs a milion times less but Im not that good on making them so I just go to the restaurants to eat them.

    Also I dont see whats wrong with the picture of fish with onions? Must be because I was eating things like that from when I was a kid. I find it tasty .

    And burgers I could live without and I would not think I ever missed anything. Must be a USA thing.

    I'm horrible about this... I have a very limited selection of items that I order from fast food places and restaurants. I get embarrassed going to the same places after work, ordering the exact same food so I'll intentionally go to a different Taco Bell, Steak 'n Shake, whatever occasionally so I won't get the "MAN....don't you ever get sick of eating the same thing every day?! " too much, lol...thinking back though, I've always been that way. I remember growing up...in grade school my mom fixed me a pb&j sandwich for lunch daily for like a couple years straight....then I changed it to a turkey sandwich It really doesn't bother me in the slightest to eat the same thing I'll occasionally change things up a tad, but for the most part it's just a means to an end for me--eating to get full so I can go on about my business, lol (granted I appreciate having the time/patience to savor a good tasting meal)...but, if I know that I like the food, then I'm pretty reluctant to try anything new. Give me a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter, and a gallon of milk and I'll be good for a week, lol I venture out of my comfort zone occasionally when it comes to food, but most of the time I'm the epitome of regimented monotony With that said, I do appreciate it when someone gently nudges me to try a new cuisine and I end up liking it...but then I tend to get stuck in a rut on this new food and the cycle repeats itself, lol...come to think of it, this tendency applies to many other Si-related areas for me as well It would seem that I'm in dire need of someone adept in Si to "gently nudge" me towards new, pleasurable experiences in general....otherwise I tend to get stuck in a rut with my old ways As they say, old habits die hard...:wink:

    Quite interesting responses overall. Isn't it ISTp's who are getting stuck in a rut and keep their old habits? Isnt it ENFp's who pull them out of their old habits?

    Maybe not. Just the stereotype floating around is like it is.
