    Default cooking and Si

    Obviously any type can cook and even be good at cooking, but how is this related to Si? Are people with weak and/or unvalued Si who enjoy or are good at cooking outliers? Or is it a reasonably common occurrence? This question is arising from this post:

Maybe this is less type related than I see to think it is, but it seems a pretty obvious Si-related activity to me. I'd be interested in hearing about this from LII's/EII's about this.

    I'm Si PoLR and I can cook and usually don't mind doing it. I can cook quite a lot of dishes pretty well.

    I think the Si food connection might mean that a person might be more inclined to cook as part of hosting/caretaking and so in much the same way as anyone else, they get better with practice. I learned for purposes of independence and sustenance, so the inclination to cook often over time in order to get better and more self-reliant was there instead of reasons of being a foodie or wanting to host parties oriented around food.

    Some of the best chefs I type EIE.

    PoLR can be a place of neurotic perfectionism, and can create a sort of insane obsession over the topic. It's unsuprising Aushra created socionics, as topics can be a area of neurotic perfectionism for polr.

    Also cooking/dining has many , and other functional associations as well.

    Si-polrs never eat. They live off of hatred and thanatonic energies of death and dispair.

    I have weak Si and I will only cook if it is necessary to impress somebody. Otherwise I find the whole procedure of cooking consuming way too much of energy and time. I would rather spend that time reading a book. I am also unwilling to experiment when cooking and don't find any pleasure in dining at all.

    I dislike cooking but I will do it to please people and to feed them.

    I don't think there's a relationship, I've seen all kinds of people being good or bad at cooking (I personally like cooking even though I recognize it's time-expensive).
