    Default Si types - what does Si "seeking" (suggestive/HA) look like to you?

    Any ways we unconsciously 'give signals' we need Si help? Or any other we might trigger Si types to step in, haha? Do you like 'taking care of' people? In what way?

    Just anything you can think of on this topic; examples and stories are welcome too.

    Dis-ease surrounding Si or just dis-ease in general that begs for soothing from a strong Si presence (for suggestive)

    ok i feel like this could apply to Ni for Se bases. not sure. anyway that's how it looks to me.

    Hesitating before doing something seems to be a trigger for them. Doing something "wrong" or "incompetently" while at the same time not coming across as threatening is another, especially for Delta STs. Being wobbly at all, which I guess is sort of like hesitancy.

    Different for different people. Seems to be about stabilizing the internal state by way of sensory stimulation. When an Si-ego gets "used" to something it can become blueprinted within their internal state & this compels them to maybe re-experience that state.

    With Si seeking, they have mixed success or, at the very least, have stress attempting to re-experience that state. Si-ego, though, can easily find ways to re-create the experience.

    What relates to Si. Pleasant sensations as to be estethically good, healthy/clean, comfortable, natural beauty. It exists in common typology texts.

    It's opposite to your attraction to physical decadence and physical suffering. Your attraction to such is rejection of Si. Such happens with worse psyche state and when people are tired to pay lesser attention to what is hard and also not interesting for them - on their weak nonvalued functions, as at your possible IEI.

    If your experience does not match to the theory, - good possibly types are other.
    And what may say people about own perception when having often mistakes in own types matters not much.

    Doing things the wrong way, wasting resources, taking more time that what's needed, hesitation. I like to assist ppl who really needs it, I dislike helping ppl who happens to have a bad attitude (rude or spoiled ppl, also overly pessimistic or angry etc).

    Well, Si types tend to be bit wound up internally, apparently. This state helps them to keep up the homeostasis between them and the environment.

    They get sucked into the flow. The flow they experience is usually not passively observed and actively transformed to objective possibilities (Ne types).

    I see this as Te base + Ni polr. LSEs do it all the time. They interrupt you if they just feel for a second that you are doing something "wrong". I find it extremely irritating. ESE has the same tendency, but less focus on method. Although it depends on how developed/ educated the LSE is. Some LSEs are very patient, they have somehow been able to cope with their polr.
    A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.

    I dated an IEE for several years long before I got into socionics. Cant remember any active "Si help" to her at any time. It doesnt work that way. It's more like chilling, being in the moment and letting the finer nuances of sensations come to the surface. It's more like a way of being.
