    Question VI: Moments of Si

    Introverted Sensing:



    IMO, this already connects well with the Caregiver[1] role and -Egos.

    What do you think though?

    There's an "artistic bias" in the manner that the pictures were taken. These pictures should be for the depictions, initially, and I think the styles should be explicitly subservient(at least point it out).

    That said, I think these are great.

    In a lot of these, though, you really can't tell if the people involved are processing the experiences through Si. I mean, just about everybody eats strawberries, or relaxes, or listens to music. And people of lots of different types may play the guitar. That doesn't necessarily mean that they're in an Si quadra or even in an Si "mode" during that time.

    I'm not saying that these images are incompatible with Si. On the contrary, taken together, one might say that in aggregate they create an impression of what's commonly understood as Si by many Socionists. However, the activities represented aren't limited to an Si interpretation.

    I would disagree that the images are hard to discern as Si. What is obviously being practiced is caring for or a sense of balance with the body. The poses and facial expressions are specifically meant to show this state. These people are "stopping to smell the roses". You can tell they are turned off mentally and just sensing what is and relaxing for the sake of such. Yes perhaps they are actors but they can still convey the state, just as smiling can make you happy and working out can make you toned and pumped up.

    What is "introverted sensing"? Are these pictures a good indication of it?

    It is still far too subjective.

    How can you not understand the state they are conveying. The signals are universal and thus objective, just like we know not what makes a real smile.

    Your looking for empirical evidence and your not going to find it from looking at images

    The problem is not what the images are conveying, the problem is one's interpretation of what the images are conveying.

    I find these pictures have a very calming effect on me.

    Also, I would postulate meditation, to be a very motivated activity.

    It depends on the type of meditation. Yes, one perspective would be nice, but the fact is - meditation is both "spiritual" and physical. Some do it for the tangible bodily effects, others do it for mental / metaphysical purposes.

    Are these two ideas, necessarily mutually exclusive?

    I have been experimenting with it recently, I have gotten into some pretty nice states with it. I get your point though, don't mistake me for trying to argue that point.
