    Default Leaving things behind unintentionally- socionics implications?

    What socionics types are most prone to leaving things behind unintentionally? I am notorious for doing this. Yesterday, I left behind my case with flash drives at work. Because I Ďfloatí between work locations it can sometimes be several weeks before I work again in that same location. Yesterday I happened to work somewhere that is a 45 minute drive from where I live. I needed the flash drive though, so I made the 1.5 hour round trip on my day off to retrieve it.

    I also find I frequently leave behind water bottles and forget where I put them. Jackets, sweaters, etc. Same thing. Also, I got Ďchewed outí by the manager for doing just that. Worse yet, Iíll put food in the workplace fridge and then decide Iím not going to eat it for lunch, but I might eat it for dinner that night. Of course, I forget to take it back home with me. The food ends up sitting there because once again itís several weeks since I work again at that same location. Iíve also done the same with files Iím working on, I temporarily save a file to the desktop before uploading it but then forget to remove the file from the desktop once itís no longer needed there. Then my coworkers wonder what that extraneous file is doing there.

    In public places, Iím so afraid that Iíll leave my purse or keys behind. I get kind of paranoid, and hold onto it at all times because in the past Iíve lost them so much that I no longer trust myself to remember if I temporarily set it down. Iíve also been known to order something through the drive through and then forget to grab my change, or the food!

    The thing is that aside from this incredible absent-mindedness, Iím actually a very neat, organized, methodical person overall. I have all of my books neatly arranged by topic. I like to put my files in folders by category. Itís just that when I get interrupted or distracted by something, I can get rather disoriented, and thatís where the forgetfulness comes in, I think. Thatís whatís so funny about this. I mean everyone is absent minded from time to time but some seem to be more prone to these moments than others. I seem to do it more than average and itís embarrasing because otherwie I am normally intelligent and organized person.

    Do you think it might be my Si HA? Te ignoring maybe? Se PoLR? Whatís going on socionically here? Or should I just get more sleep, because when Iím sleep deprived Iím more prone towards making these errors.

    all things even i'd probably say Ne Base. Most likely to space out outwards.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    Weak / subdued . For example with EIE, they are seemingly at constant war with themselves over leaving things / misplacing things and losing them, which disrupts their homeostasis. Might be related to weak as well - anecdotally I know one particularly forgetful ESI.

    I personally prefer behavioralist theories for this kinda stuffs. I keep finding great things I like about socionics' model, but mostly they're nice theoretical properties that apply to only a very specific class of things.

    I'm curious. What would be an example of a behavioral theory that could describe this (or something like this)?

    Well let's just say trait theories, like the FFM/Big Five might describe this stuff as one aspect of their broad Conscientiousness factor.
    I find those kinds of theories more or less organize most of the very observable traits out there in a way that makes sense, even if it's not earth-shattering. There's no need to shatter the earth where there's a down to earth version of things, so to speak.
