    Fi? Si? Ni?

    what functions do you think you use when you get nostalgic?

    For me, it's more of a thing. I never use when I get nostalgic (for obvious reasons )

    My ENFj dad is huge into nostalgia. He hangs onto old stuff like nobody's business.

    I do like it too, but not like my dad.

    I wonder if both Fi and Ni can get hooked into the nostalgia thing, but in different ways. Like for me, nostalgia is about trying to relive the feelings I had at that point. But maybe it's different for my dad.

    ewww don't confuse sentiment for nostalgia

    I'm not sentimental, but I am nostaglic. Peter asks me why I bring up stuff from the past, like, "Do you remember that one time before we were together that you said blahblahblahetc?"

    I think for me it's how I find my way to Fi.

    I have a bad habit of getting people into nostaligic conversations. I dont do it on purpose. My ENFp friend can, too, but not as frequently. She also recalls instances much more vividly than I do.

    is nostalgia connected to Ni?

    I could see easily see an arguement either way

    kelly, I'm the same way, but it's not always a bad thing. it's a bad thing if I'm in recovery from being badly hurt. otherwise it's a neutral or happy thing, except for the occasional times when I recall horrible things and come to some new form of understanding about it... I call that growth...

    Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    If its a happy memory, but I can't ... duplicate it again, it makes me sad. So even happy nostalgic moments are unpleasant for me.

    I think I used to do this to Peter and it made him really uncomfortable. Well I probably still do. =/

    Nostalgia seems more of a Fi thing, to me. Ni, to some extent, but it's a more vague sort of nostalgia.
    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    This topic is about socionics, about me, and about the people who post here. What you said merely got me thinking about how I've always been quite nostalgic.

    I have some streets and a coastal road often appear in my dream, where I think I know originally they are. Perhaps this is caused by and/or things.

    I guess functions matter how nostalgia emerges and appears to others.

    I'm not a very nostalgic person. I rarely voluntarily visit my past. I prefer to think about the future, because I'd rather keep in mind that everything gets better and better. True so far. I tend to be pessimistic about the past (thinking more about the bad things), but fairly optimistic about the future.

    Of course, I sometimes remind myself and a few people of fun stuff in the past - "it's like the time we went camping and it rained all night...". That's not type-related.

    Mhh... I'm not nostalgic, but I am sentimental. I like the songs that relate to certain moods, I like old places that have the "feeling" (churches, ruins), things with the "feeling" (antiquities, cute things I put in my "treasure box" when I was 10). I don't know if it's .

    a) It can affect any type. So if b) It is function related, it would be interesting to know in what ways the function's position influences the outcome. The (relative) position of other functions would probably also influence nostalgia too (I mean more than the obvious focus on the function's "area of consciousness").

    Fi and Si mostly.
    Ditto ( I think ) Its hard for me to remember the order of things that have happened sometimes. I have to relate my past experiences with people and my feelings about them or something that struck me in some way, otherwise its all a blur of images and scenes. I also am afraid I can embelish my memories with imagination that makes it difficult to stay factual. For example we have gone camping at this one spot three years in a row. Now when I try to remember a specif time my mind will gather experiences from the other times and blend them in so it all becomes one big camping misch mash. I have to really concentrate to separate what happened. Usually I just ask my brother who has a much better sequential memory. :wink:
