    Default SEI vs. IEI reaction to the injuries of those around them

    And I'm not talking about immediate situations. I'm talking about stuff that happened recently that the person is still healing from.

    Which of those types is most likely to think it's funny and tell their own "funny" stories about times when they'd been injured?

    Do you mean like I see someone with a leg in a cast and then I start telling them about how I lost my penis in an unfortunate smelting accident?

    When an empathetic person gets hurt, it's not funny. It's sad. When a troublemaker gets hurt it's comical, cause they had it coming. But who decides what these are? The geniuses at Hollywood and the pure creators that create everything we love. The most powerful people on the planet.

    A rule of art. Since Dolphin and Mune and Vero are so empathetic and human relateable, when something bad happens to them in the story, you care- but if a villain gets injured, somebody who is out just to fuck up the entire world and send it down a depressing black hole then you're like 'Yay' when they get punched in the face.

    Tragedy makes the best art. Good people getting fucked over is like candy you can't stop looking at. Because it's true. There is no righteousness. Evil is always waiting to strike, and the way to fight this is to realize that it's everywhere.

    Thinking it's exciting and interesting.. SEI. Thinking it's mildly entertaining but not caring that much.. IEI.

    I think I agree with this. I know an SEI who would be really interested in hearing the story behind it and then launch into their own stories. I have a much much shorter attention span for that sort of thing and would tend to not care. (no offense to your injured ankle, lol)

    It's not long stories (who would want to hear a long story about getting hurt?). It's the cliff's notes about what happened, and it's usually focusing on the more entertaining aspects of it.

    My sprained ankle, for example. The story goes: So I'm at this bonfire and I decide I feel like running. I do that sometimes. Sometimes you've just got to run, you know? And it's dark out and I'm running full speed and catch my foot in a hole. I didn't just stumble, either. I slid or rolled a few feet. I mean, I even ended up with a scratch on my forehead. It'll be interesting to discover all of the other bruises I don't even know about yet. *laugh* Guess I learned my lesson about running through dark fields!

    (Does that answer your question, BulletsAndDoves? I wasn't a villain but I did deserve it. It wasn't like some serious and unfortunate thing that happened to someone who was just going about their business. I totally did it to myself by running around in a dark field like an idiot. I guess you could say I was being reckless.)

    This person suggested I wrap it in an ace bandage, but other than pretty much just thought the whole thing was as amusing I as did and told me a story of a way worse injury and we laughed just as much about that.

    I said that my overall sentiment about the whole thing was that I felt ashamed of myself, and I asked if that was an appropriate response. He pretty much said suggested just laughing about it.

    You can tell me as many times as you want.

    I guess the stories about how it happened are more of the focus than the injury itself. Like... we're telling each other about our adventures. We tell each other stories about other things that have nothing to do with injuries, too.

    sounds like a conversation I'd have with my SEI friend.

    He showed no interest in the injury itself though?

    SEIs aren't very empathetic to non-threatening injuries. They'd probably just tell that person to grow a backbone or something if he was being a wimp about it. I haven't met many sensors who are, really.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    "Grow a backbone!" is a bit harsh. I think I'd more laugh about it being no big deal.

    I get coddly when it's emotional or relational damage, though
