So I wanted to start talking about our IE placements one-by-one lately, and I wanted to make a video, but I've been too busy and look like I've been through a hurricane whenever I come home and have time to record something. So we'll just have to do this the old-fashioned way
I'm posting this today because I've started to notice something reoccurring that SiTe do with me, and I'm guessing its a manifestation of their . I also wonder if anyone else has noticed this, or if any SiTe can relate as well, maybe I'm just reaching for a connection that isn't there.
For one reason or another, all the SiTe I know love to show me things. Like, something that has caught their attention recently, or a new toy of sorts, and they want to explore it and explain it, and they get excited about it in their own SiTe way. I find this rather charming, as I usually don't know much about whatever it is they want to explain to me, or I have a topical knowledge enough for me to ask question and have them go into more depth.
One example of this was the SiTe friend I'm close with wanted me to see a collection of different wood he has for wood working. He wanted to explain to me each one's weight, density, and smell, and what it's used for. While I can't say types of wood has been on the top of my list in things to explore, I do like having the knowledge now that I can randomly be like "Oh, that's such and such and it's good for this." He'll also explain to me the different types of companies that make certain tools and which are reputable or not, and I could easily find how other people would find this boring or irrelevant, but for me it's like I don't mind having random information tucked away somewhere, even though I don't find it completely interesting. It's just fun to see him into something.
Just now, the SiTe husband of a TeSi friend has been all about his new TV and the crazy settings it has. He's more technophobic (strangely enough, a lot of my closer TeSi and SiTe friends aren't into technology so much...) and I, on the other hand, am not, so when I offhandedly mentioned he could connect his external hard drive to his TV and watch the movies from there, he started to flip out with excitement (well, as much as a SiTe could lol) and go through every single setting he possibly could, and kept calling me over to look at how the movie picture setting was different from the natural, etc.
Either way, I've been more keen on looking for particular usages of IEs in certain functions rather than the two apart (So in the creative function rather than just looking for just ), and maybe I'll get to the point where I can see something in particular that is an action from the perspective of an entire block. Understanding how different is in leading vs creative will make it easier to type overall, as we'll be able to apply this sort of perspective to all types.
