    Default SLEs/ESTps and OCD

    Does anyone know any SLEs (Se subtype, in particular) who are OCD (or borderline) regarding Si things? (textures of fabric, the way things fit and feel, weird about being touched while sleeping)

    Not really. The one I know is more OCD about getting things done. He's a diva though and is pretty particular more so with his appearance then comfort (what he's wearing & how his hair looks). He once got really upset with me because I didn't let him know that his hair looked like crap when we left the house to go to target lol; I thought it looked fine. I'm kind of the same way regarding that stuff, but not as keen on the minute details.

    I've been wondering if my mom is SLE (maybe ESE.. she's one of those types that could get confused.. like Rachael Ray or something). I don't even have test results to start with, because she's ESL, and the test language is a little more nuanced for her skill level.. and she's not all that interested anyways. That said, she's pretty OCD (then again, I think many Asian moms are OCD somehow). She always has to be busy, even in her older age. Even if it's just gardening, the projects are kind of big. Growing up was maddening, because she'd get on these streaks where some new home project or cleaning had to be done, and she always went about it by upheaving the place and my life..and then rebuilding.

    Not the best, but not terrible either. I respect her a lot, but we don't talk much. She's more stoic. And when I was young, the respect was more like fear. She was pretty disciplinarian. It doesn't make a good case for her being my dual, does it? I guess I just keep it open because there's a side of her that's SLE-like.

    Guys, don't forget that the normal dynamics of the intertype relationship is strained and inaccurate due to the parent-child relationship. They're not on an even level.

    Of course an SLE *could* be OCD, not all SLEs are the same. But I find that ISTjs, ISFjs, ISFps, and ISTps are more particular about physical sensations/order, like the "fabrics" example you mentioned. Has to do I think with either Si leading, or Ti leading for order combined with strong (although unvalued) Si.

    My SLE bf is concerned about "quality", which kind of encompasses that. If it looks/feels cheap, he'll go for the more expensive option, even if it's stupidly expensive. Unless it's flamboyant, in which case he'll go for impact over anything else I guess it's the same thing though - he's (overly?) concerned about how he appears to other people, through what he owns/wears/uses.

    With other Si-related things: he has very particular taste in food, we have arguments all the time about whether or not something needs more salt/sugar/soysauce/MSG etc. He pays extra for premium food (good marinated fetta, prosciutto, foie gras). He bought an expensive and very comfortable mattress when he was a close-to-penniless student, and whines about my bed being too hard. He spends forever picking out clothes.

    I think his attitude towards these things is that, if he notices it enough, and he wants it enough, he has no problem spending extra time/money getting it.

    lol your boyfriend sounds exactly like my boyfriend. They should meet or something.

    He's not so particular with food but he is with alcohol. He only drinks Gray Goose, Belvedere, or black/gold/blue label. Really particular about wines, too.

    He also has really good taste when it comes to clothing. He only wears designer name brands when he goes out. Armani Exchange is his fave. He also loves to go shopping with me so he can pick out things for me to wear... he has a good eye; everything he picks out always looks good. He kind of get's a lil' too excited about it though... it's hilarious.

    Lol. My boyfriend is also exactly like Ezra. They should all meet up... but then again they shouldn't, because it'll probably end with some sort of fire and general mess

    Lol yeah same here - not the shopping with me (he won't stop pestering me about using the dressing rooms for, um, alterantive purposes so he's banned), but he's the one wearing the Versace shirt and Ben Sherman suit, drinking his Mount Gay rum - which he'll promptly soak said clothing in while gesticulating wildly across the room at someone.

    The one I know has very sensitive taste in food. He actually doesn't drink--has never in his life gotten drunk because he doesn't like to feel out of control. But he says he should have been a taste tester cause he can taste very minor differences in things.

    He'd spend $50 on a pair of underwear, if it was perfectly soft and if he had the money. lol

    dressing rooms... funny, it's been probably over a decade since I've been shopping with a man.

    Yes.

    My good college friend is SLE and heavy sensory stuff (Si isn't textures, but what texture appeals to the person's internal state). Se is very sensory, touching, feelings, etc... It might seem like Si, but unlike Si, Se needs to do it (take physical action) to experience the sensory information. Se looks like Si, but Si is experiencing it once and internalizing the sensory data into a dream where they can experience and relive the pleasure in their fantasy, internal (hence introvert) mind.

    This is perfectly normal for SLE.

    Never known any SLEs who were OCD about such things but I have known a few ILEs who periodically would become extremely sensitive when it came to sensory stuff, textures, smells, tastes, not wanting to be disturbed abruptly which sometimes included being touched, etc.
