    Default Type question

    When you are asked what you were doing on the day before today, does...

    1. a mental picture of what happened form almost automatically in your mind, not causing you strain in any way...?

    or does...

    2. very little happen 'just like that' and you find yourself needing to make a mental 'map' by which to navigate (eg. 'yesterday was a saturday, I do such and so on saturdays, and indeed that is what I also did yesterday') before anything comes up...?

    Also please tell us your type if it isn't publicly known already.

    numero dos

    The days blend together for me. Like I've said before, I don't think of specific times/dates as being points on a linear time line.

    easily the second option. in order to answer the question, it would be necessary for me to spend some time chronologically proceeding through the day's events.


    i doubt this is type related.

    It *could* be a static/dynamic thing. Or something.

    that occurred to me. if it were type related, it would most likely be static/dynamic.

    nonetheless, i think that the ability to recall details about one's day reflects memory capacity more than type traits. the reaction to a question posed about one's day may differ based on type, but i think there's more to this question than that. perhaps there would be a case if the focus was on how day-to-day information were disseminated (for example, an ESFj is a lot more likely to ramble on about the mundane events of their day than an INTp).

    If I did something fun, I will remember right away. If I did boring things, I'll have to think about it to recount everything I did. And then the problem isn't so much about *what* I did as it is specifically *when* I did it. I might think I did it the day before yesterday instead of yesterday.

    #1, but if you want to know what I did more than a day or two ago your out of luck... no amount of #2 is going to work and #1 doesn't go back that far. So I'd probably just make a thinking face for a few seconds then make some shit up.

    ( @ talking about #1 and #2s)

    agreed
    the stronger the emotion (including confusion, excitement at learning something new, etc), the more likely I'll remember "immediately", though I'm also just as likely to mix up yesterday with up to two days ago

    if nothing about the past three days stands out, then i have to do a reconstruction based on what I intended to do on such and such day, along with how many relatively extreme variances in mood (and cause of mood changes) there were over the past three days.
