    Default Define Se and how it looks like in Egoblock

    Now that I consider ISTJ as a serious possibility for me Iīd like to learn more about Se.

    How would you define it, and how would someone with Se in the egoblock behave or think that would be similar to them all?

    Practical examples also, please. Iīm tired of "external dynamics of objects in static movements of psychic masturbation inside my head" explanations.

    I feel the exact same way. I don't even know what that stuff means! (well, I know what masturbation means, but that's all, lol)

    yes. They see what IS. How things are right now. they have the urge to manipulate things manually. they move toward you, toward a goal. they scan the environment looking for movement. they are able to get things done. they're competent, confident, they make decisions swiftly. ahhhhh.....

    -Living in the moment
    -accepting reality for whats apparent or seeing what is
    -reacting based on what is
    -seeing the tree rather than the forest

    For ISTjs, they use Se as a creative function to produce the understandings of their Ti function. So in order to learn or understand, they must live in the moment and experience it.

    So like...Learning how to drive. Experiencing getting yourself in the car, turning it on, driving on the road, etc., will build Ti understanding of how to drive a car.

    Se - External Object Statics:
    This means that Se is your function for gathering data on the external world. I'm gonna contrast with Ne (Internal Object Statics) to clarify (or maybe not.)

    Se is the function for giving direct experiential data in the outside world. Colour, sound, shape, size, appearance, these are some of the things that Se characterizes by, and this is how Se types often tend to think, the "objects" and associations are what is experienced. My mom is Se-ESTp and I have noticed that she and other Se leads have a tendency to describe things more directly in terms of how they are perceived, ie a glass of coke becomes "drink" because that's what the sensory input is. It is liquid that is being drunk, hence drink, not coke, because there is nothing about perceiving it that says coke. Se, because it is external, is also I believe, constantly updating objects. So if the properties change, the perception of the object changes immediately with it, and for this reason Se tends to be aware of changes in the environment. Also I believe this means that when an object stops being experienced, it starts to fade from memory, because that is the updated information on it. The object is the current experience, it's external, it's not something that is "owned" the way an internal static object is.

    For a quick contrast, Ne sucks objects in from the external world, but they are more assimilated as a concept, which may or may not have a great deal of connection to the actual object and the experience had with it. The connections Ne makes are not to the sensory experience of an object but to the internal connections with become associated and bound. For this reason also, when something goes away, Ne will not update with the new information that something doesn't exist, because Ne sucked it in once, and then maintains the internal object, which has no connection to reality. This is where the Ne is spacey idea comes from, and also why Ne types tend to have, in my experience, better memories than Se leads (though vastly more limited experiential data about things and less alertness.) An Ne type will call the coke coke because the word coke is forever bound to that sparkly black goo in the Ne type's mind, even though it doesn't relate to the experience.

    Now for an analogy. Se is direct feed HD video monitor with surround sound of the world, and Ne is a series of shitty sketches taken periodically with a bunch of notes around it and knights, ferries, and spaceships drawn around the borders for no apparent reason.


    IMO IMO IMO IMO

    This info mainly pertains to Ne and Se leads, I don't have much experience with Pe functions in the creative slot. Some of this should certainly apply though.

    Yeah, I guess those were bad examples. lol

    How about...Se people seem to be better at observing their surroundings?

    I dunno, I've noticed that I'm a lot more observant to little details going on around me than a lot of my friends who aren't ISTj, ESTp, etc., Like I'm always like "hey did you see what X was doing, such and such," and they'd be like "huh" - its almost like they're somewhat detached or that I just have a careful eye on things.

    And about the part about you can't learn something by just theorizing it... I feel like some people can pick up things the first time after discussing/reading/seeing it versus me having to go through it over and over (experiencing it for myself) to finally get it...would this be Se related, Ashton? Or more of me being a dumbass?

    Thanks

    Oh also, I think one shouldn't view the Pe functions as really doing any manipulation. The pairs Fi or Ti do most of that, connections and stuff. But the way in which connections are made is very related to the way in which objects are perceived, so in terms of thought process, you see the effects of the Pe functions, but they themselves are not so much directly responsible for associations and ideas.

    These things again, are probably more applicable to Ep than Ij types.

    P.S. @ Ashton

    Or how about in terms of decision making...Lets say an ISTj-ENFp couple is considering to buy a house. However, they're in debt, low on the cash.

    An ISTj would say: Yo, we can't buy the new house, we gots no money. (basing the decision on whats apparent, Se. this decision would also be a no brainer for them, reacting immediately)

    An ENFp would say: Nah man, we're gonna make money in the near future! Let's buy the house! (basing the decision on future possibilities, Ne. and compared to the ISTj, they wouldn't be as decisive and would probably consider the possibility longer)

    Though I'm sure you already know, in case anyone doesn't Wikisocion's vocab page is great for synonyms and the Se page is less informative but more specific.

     
    I've always seen Se as a 'general' concept as a kind of desire to materialize (emphasis on material) one's will; to see physical, tangible results when one wants something done. For example, if an Se lead desires something, he will go about it in a very direct way that produces the most physical results as fast as possible; they will have a grasp of what kind of/how much force is necessary to achieve something.

    To do this the Se lead has a very firm grasp of what is real, what is physical and tangible, and it follows that they are physically capable and know what they are physically attracted to, i.e. sense, smell (food goes here), even people. They serve to lessen the perpetual physical doubt of the Ni ego with its physical confidence and forthrightness.

    Further, the Se ego is adept at assigning objective, physical descriptions of objects (this is where things like colors/shapes play a role; it is black, round etc) as well as to senses and desires. This is a big difference from the Si ego, as the Si ego will assign personal preferential value to objects rather than objective ones; it doesn't matter that the object is black or round, but rather that it makes the Si ego feel a certain way physically. The Se ego is aware of it surroundings in a number of ways; having easily assigned/recognized the physical characteristics of its environment, it will also recognize the presence of other individuals and their territorial holds/authority.

    However, the Se ego is characterized also by its anxiety of the future; it does not know what tommorow will bring and seeks reassurance that it is not ill prepared for it.

    At least, that's the general way I've looked at it. It seems to be a more comprehensible/fleshed out description than the Wiki's Se page and coincides with the descriptions therein, though admittedly the Wiki places more emphasis on conflict seeking and territorial behavior. Why this is I'm not totally sure; perhaps it is because the emphasis Se places on physical and tangible results it naturally follows that it also is aware of the physical presence of others and how they may affect the Se's goals.

    Keep in mind also that Se is different in each type, though in all cases it seems to serve to actualize and push the user's agenda.

     









    No really, I'm serious, courage wolf is a comical representation of pure . Search for it on google images to get good descriptions .

    I have to agree with Ashton, most of the suggestions are stereotypes and don't actually apply to .

    To be fairly honest, but not wanting to be rude, what you're mocking here is how you actually understand concepts such as ... So it's like you want someone to do the thinking for you and point you a direction. If you click through some of the links on Wikisocion, and the threads called Information Aspects, you can read up and become familiar. It might help out seeing that you're asking this question.

    the Information Aspect (the Information Metabolism Element not in any function placement) has to do with understanding the capacity and capabilities of things, people, ideas, etc, discerning what they are by the qualities of their's that can be observed. As -creative, which is what I guess you're interested in, takes on an active role where the type (TiSe or FiSe) directly assess the Object with a criteria ( or ) already in mind. TiSe will do whatever they need to get an understanding, so they manipulate (more in the handling sense than the using, though it is applicable) the Object directly to understand its capabilities, remembering the observable data they gain from interacting with the Object.

    I don't think I said it was bad to ask questions, but to say you don't even want to understand something there's resources for... Well, how does one take that seriously? I gave an answer that comes from my understanding that tries to keep integrity to what (I have found) is while not using overly technical language. I understand that trying to throw around technical concepts to new people is going to confuse them more than help, but I don't exactly consider redbaron new... And, again, I tried to put forth what I honestly felt while trying to keep respect, I think it's also unfair of you to call me out after I tried to be easy about it, there were other ways to say what I said that wouldn't have been nice and conducive to a learning environment.

    I would say length of time doesn't signify much by looking around at other posters here, and this kinda goes against what you've said with taking everything read here with a grain of salt, especially with "seasoned" Socionists.

    from the info I gathered so far I must be LSI really...

    anyone got a suggestion of a painless, peaceful death suicide method?

    I just canīt live this ridiculous burgeous life. I was made for something greater, a cause, a war, something big, very big, in which the whole world could be changed, something like Nazism. I canīt see any point in living this ridiculous life, getting enough money to buy a nicer car after years of working in a boring job, then get old and fat and talk about eating out at night with old and fat friends. And think all this is life. It just isnīt. Life must have something grand to it, something crazy, it must be intense and I cannot feel any intensity within myself. In fact I feel a big gap within myself. This is why I think Iīm LSI, this total 'lack of passion'. Itīs like everyone is living with some adrenaline level that I just donīt have. I need something big like a war or racing cars or flying planes to get to this point of adrenaline which people normally get just by being alive.

    What have you changed so far? What have you experienced so far? You've got nothing to lose in trying to get what you want. Seek out passionate experiences and people and stick with them.

    Well if there's anyone passionate and crazy about life it's the EIE, I'm not sure how much of that you will achieve in the EII.

    My brother (EIE fo sho) always has some crazy revolutionary idea he keeps pushing, always enthusiastic and upbeat about it. He talks about things in life like they're some kind of magnificent drama that we all play grand roles in.

    However, I will keep myself from projecting too much until you're sure of your type.

    Someone who sees things and tells them as they are without using Si to evaluate how they feel about the things they see or what sensations and feelings these things that they are observing making an effect on them and others because they don't care about how other's feelings are effected by such sensations unless they are Fe type of feelings.

    Sexually Se might feel a person's hand touching them and experience the sensation for what it is and nothing more; while Si valuers, like myself, have many sensations all over our body activated due to a remote touch, thought of that feeling or sensation, hence I can be aroused by the thought of sexual contact and actually experience an orgasm while an Se valuer may have to actually engage in an act to do so. As an example.

    no. The trait that you described for Si valuers is true mostly for women in general.

    Also for men; how many times have you heard an LSE say "that was pleasant"; "I like how that feeling made me feel"?

    I have many time; men and women are alike.

    Well er, no type has any monopoly on any behavior really.

    Anyway, I may have been oversimplifying. To add context, I mean was that he takes things I overlooked and found insignificant and blows them to epic proportions. He has a knack for being able to weave these things into a grand scheme of things. I think EIEs have a passionate theme to them, though it may not be about 'life' in general and they certainly aren't the only ones.

    Did you just say you can experience an orgasm through 'thought of sexual contact'? That's an.. um.. pretty interesting skill to have I guess..

    Thatīs very interesting Maritsa.

    I love hugging and things like that, but I certainly canīt have an orgasm without some sort of sexual intercourse... I really donīt know whether Iīm Si or Se valuing. Itīs hard to tell, really, because I have depression. But many of the ISTJ features as in wikisocion.org strike me as being very much myself.

    Although I do not and cannot know for sure my type probably in this thing without actually meeting face to face someone who knows a lot about this, and being with this person for some time. Then the person may be able to dispell my doubts.

    What makes sense in me being LSI:

    Special attraction to EIE women,
    Stiff, rigid, not very much relaxed in everyday life - only weekends or holidays, then itīs like my 9 wing comes and takes me to a deep peace.
    I walk like Iīm marching.
    Iīve been told Iīm arrogant, people have the impression that I have a big ego and think Iīm better than everyone (I relate this to beta quadra).
    Can be forceful in a physical and psychological manner for extended periods of time.

    Although, thereīs probably an Si issue. Either I use a lot my demonstrative Si or Iīm a delta ST.

    this isn't intrinsic to Si at all. I always get a distinct feeling and image of a person's energy from momentary physical contact. it reveals something about them, and how I relate to them.

    again, this just does not hold true. I replay memories of all sorts, often more vividly than what I experience in the present moment. actually, this helps clarify a lot of subtleties that I wouldn't have known registered before.

    fwiw I relate to all of this, with the last one being less consistent.

    It isn't. Some people can't read and that's why they create a thread after thread, asking about something, they could read in silence.

    Most are actually rather very cautious because acknowledging the laws of the strong, they're not necessarily strong themselves, neither aggressive nor necessarily wishing to dominate. This is a grave fallacy, the more we use it, the more biased views and descriptions we will have, sliding far away from reality.
    I agree with this 110%. This relates to my SLE husband very well.

    As much as I'm trying to understand activiation as Maritsa describes it, I'm thinking what is being described is may be more a function of rather. This goes beyond

    Maritsa won't be very content when she sees this. Oh no, she won't. Hope you're wearing a protective vest.

    If you will refrain from shooting me for a brief second, I would like to suggest an example of how plays out in the ego block: (especially when blocked with )

    Ayn Rand.

    Also, I'm in favor of the general notion in this thread of disassociating from "strength."

    If Se doesn't imply strength, there are some very misleading descriptions on wikisocion.

    Se 1st
    He is keenly aware of territorial conflicts and confrontational behavior occurring around him. He very quickly becomes confrontational when others try to make him move or get him to do something in an aggressive or confrontational way. He quickly recognizes when people are trying to get each other to do something or are trying to organize him for some purpose. He also spontaneously uses aggression to achieve his own goals.
    He enjoys testing his will in challenging situations and views life as a sort of obstacle course, full of adversity and challenges, that must be weathered and conquered.
    Se 2nd
    The individual takes direct action to accomplish his goals and desires in the face of external obstacles
    He takes his responsibilities seriously and tends to perform them diligently and with care. He expects the same of others.
    And plenty more. Honestly, Wikisocion really pushes that Se is this power, force, aggression and attack; how you are going to dissociate that from strength in general is not clear to me.

    The way we ultimately describe the types is through stereotypes in the first place; if you physically extracted all the stereotypes from a type, there would be nothing left to describe it with.

    I think the difference is that these descriptions focus on sensing forces at work in the environment - hence increased awareness of conflicts, among other things - rather than on being forceful, which is off the mark.

    @Ashton: I don't think Te has anything to do with situational awareness of the kind described in this thread, really.

    Yes, and everyone (at least most everyone) can drive cars. Everyone uses all of the functions but to a greater or lesser extent - degrees of preference and skill. Below are a couple of my examples of preferences and degrees of skill for intuition vs sensing:

    Example - driving:
    I can drive a car, and I've never been in an accident. Compared to my SLE husband the quality of the drive is quite different. He prefers to be in the immediate context, very observant and you can tell in his movements the level of concrete, dextrous skill - focused, engaged. He is so comfortable in fact, he will take risks to engage immediate stimulation. When I drive, I'm observant, but, it takes effort to stay focused in the immediate context. You can tell by my movements that my focus is not completely with the here and now. In an emergency situation while driving, I would trust him implicitly to make the right decision.

    Example - trading the markets:
    While in Europe, we traded currencies to optimize transfers of money back home. One of my past times is charting stocks/technical analysis. I read the stock market. It requires understanding theory, visualization, imagination and forecasting trends. My SLE husband has absolutely no patience for this. He wants action now. So, when the timing is right, I would let him know. He doesn't want to hear about the rationalizations. He executes the trade and follows it as it goes up. I'll tell him when it's close to closing the trade. He'll go by gut feel as to when he wants to close. For myself, executing the trade brings me to close to the action. I've actually made silly mistakes just from the execution. I prefer some distance, acting as advisor.

    Different levels of imagination. Some people take imagination much more seriously, like in the MBTI this is one trait for intuitive types. Where as sensing types will live more in the world of facts and in the moment, even often much more in reality.

    I for one take imagination combined with spirituality more seriously than a lot of people.

    things Iīd like to comment from these interesting inputs which are being discussed.

    first, definitions of Se from wikisocion:

    He is keenly aware of territorial conflicts and confrontational behavior occurring around him.[totally me].

    He very quickly becomes confrontational when others try to make him move or get him to do something in an aggressive or confrontational way.[if the way is REALLY aggressive or confrontational, totally me again, Iīll respond with an immediate confrontation].

    He quickly recognizes when people are trying to get each other to do something or are trying to organize him for some purpose. [LOL because I can recognize ppl trying to manipulate me from 100 thousand fucking kilometers away, and I can also see when someone is manipulating another person, oft the person being manipulated is not aware, and I do not usually interfere with this. Only times I interfered it was to help either my mother, my father or some girlfriend, and most of the times they say 'youīre paranoid' or 'this is my life, I know if someone tries to manipulate me, I donīt need your controlling me'.]

    He also spontaneously uses aggression to achieve his own goals. [I donīt, I think itīs savage-like to use aggression if you can achieve your goals through more mental ways.]

    He enjoys testing his will in challenging situations[yes I do but doesnīt everyone?] and views life as a sort of obstacle course, full of adversity and challenges, that must be weathered and conquered. [sure life is full of adversity and challenges, also, another thing which I think everyone with a brain knows.]

    from these definitions, I do have strong Se, but then... arenīt most male homo sapienses like this? at least heterosexual ones? and Iīm really not a guy whoīs into a macho power-trip or a strength trip. Iīm not even into working out at gym anymore, I think lifting weights is an exercise of patience, itīs boring.

    ESTj's can also behave a bit like this. Their ordering around can be seen as agressive behaviour. They have no problem telling you what to do. This they share with Se types.

    I just made up some things, maybe it helps you to differentiate better between estj/istj:

    ESTj: their talk is very business like, they talk usually faster then the average person, and also louder. They want everyone to work really hard. They are also hard workers themselves.

    ISTj: they talk calm and slowly. They can be extremely stubborn, and want others to do everything according to the procedures/book, which they also follow loyally themselves. They are slow and somewhat private workers, but you can completely trust them to do their duty.

    Which one is you?
