    You did not just badmouth impressionism.

    The next blow would be that you totally dig abstract abstract expressionism.

    I generally love expressionism, with the notable exception of Schiele, whose art I seem to detest.

    Abstract expressionism is definitely something I love love love. It strikes a chord in me.

    Here are two of my favourites (a big hats off to the Austrian influence in my taste in art, lol)

    Thank you Dear Si's for being cozy, warm, and kind.

    For providing the right balance of relaxation and "stimulation"; for the pleasure you take with me in enjoying good food, for feeding me when I'm hungary, for helping me correctly stay in tune with my inner sensations, both physically and with experiences with my outside environment. For helping me rest.

    I love you.

    I agree. Duals should concentrate on being together in everyday life and stay away from art, science etc. You don't need impressionism to get SiFe and I don't need quantum physics to get NeTi.

    That's okay, you can "feel" the picture if you want. I'll look at something more structural.

    It's not so much feeling the picture, but the accuracy with what light does, the focus on aesthetics, and the nice, soothing scenes.

    I always thought quantum physics was NiTe. Didn't Einstein fiercely resist it because of the whole uncertainty bizzo, or something?

    Anyway, @Vero, this raises an interesting question. What does "art" mean to you? I mean, for me, I like impressionism but dislike abstract expressionism because one embodies what I think art is/should be, and the other violates that in every conceivable way (and subsequently makes me think it's base, crass, and stupid). I was wondering if it's a similar sort of deal for you, only in reverse; hence your strong negative opinion of impressionism.

    To me art is a form of expression. Anything can be art so long as it communicates to someone in a way that they like it. It can be on the grounds of memory, aesthetic, emotional expression, intellectual expression or probably any number of other things.

    The reason I hate impressionism is because it bothers me when I look at it. I dislike the kind of shaking, movement feeling of it. It makes me irritated and it makes me want to take a black permanent marker to it and just scribble on it. It's contained bordering on the edge of exploding for me and makes me feel the same way. I hate the frequently pastel palette used in impressionism. It's not aesthetically pleasing to me at all.

    Basically I hate impressionism for the reasons you like it. It's sense of aesthetic is not mine. It's calm and soothing, which makes me feel irritated, restricted and confined.

    People like what they like. For me, I kind of go for geometric abstract art. I think it's because it makes me nod to myself like, "Yeah, I could do that!"

    interesting... I hate it too. but it's almost the opposite of what you said. I don't find it calm and soothing at all. it's jittery and irratating... also, it's like it any content is washed out and fuzzy to the point of just being noise. I just go "bleh" at impressionistic stuff, there's nothing there for me. (actually, the more that I pay attention to what you said, the more that I realize that we're getting the same feelings off of it and I'm just restating what you said. )

    these pictures have the same effect on me!

    impressionist art leaves me flat, too. it doesn't make me jittery though...just bored. it lacks drama.

    I don't mind Impressionism. It feels like someone tried to paint a real picture, and almost got there.

    About this picture. I've been thinking about it since I am working in gardening at the moment. Gardening seems to attract a lot of Si creatives (especially ESTj) but perhaps even more Se egos. Not so much Si leading types.

    I sometimes think that gardening is pointless, "unnatural" and too heavy work, and wild nature attracts me more, so why bother.

    You make a good point. Unless it's a hobby, I'd doubt an Si dominant would want to waste their energy on that kind of manual labor

    i know an ESE who has a garden, she lets the deer in our area eat some of it, and she uses the vegetables for her homemade food

    and my SEI grandma used to bird watch, does that count as an Si leading activity?



    and bower birds remind me of Si

    I would say getting physically involved with a task is a very Si thing to do. But then again she might be right about her basic association as Si dominates seem to me more about 'things developing naturally' and her as non-Te valuer would see work-ethic as a negative attribute.
