Some say base is a "hero" function, the function you'd turn to first to help someone in need. The base & ignoring are somewhat inverses of one another, maybe even oppositional. In your view, why do you prefer your base over your ignoring? What makes your base so awesome for you?
For me, Se is my way of quickly making things happen or simply just to get things moving faster. Si is a beast for the internal state, but too slow & careful for me. I wouldn't be much help focusing on anybody's intern state.
