    I am really enjoying these interviews. It would be a great addition to interview the opposite gender for some of these.

    That last post was supposed to show up as a response to Taylor’s comment. Not sure what I missed to get it to appear as a reply.

    Si is a super tough function for me. It is sixth function for me so that makes sense and I can definitely see the crone/witch/grumpy old person ‘you kids get off my lawn’ architypal energy with it that Antonia and Joel have talked about in a past episode about the shadow functions.

    It does make it tough to do many of the reflect on the past to make sense of things or see how far you have come exercises…especially if the goal is to get a positive take on something. If there is a way to circumvent it using Se/Ni that would be awesome though I haven’t really found a good equivalent probably due to what you are explaining. I have also found that I have huge resistance to Si specific tools like journaling. It is really frustrating how many personal growth/self help things seem to think people like and benefit from journaling. Probably many do but for me it is always the point I drop that thing or skip that part of the exercise. Any ideas for other activities that might fill that niche or other ways to ease into making peace with Si?

    Super excited to hear about your intent to provide more sensor content in the future. I do find the intuitive stuff interesting and very useful understanding the workings of my Ni ten year old better and perhaps it really has been a better learning experience to have to pull the sensor tidbits out more indirectly, but I have long hoped you might do an ISTP workshop and/or mentor group.

    Interestingly, while the ISTP interview was a good one, I actually identified with it less than a lot of the others where I was trying to mine individual function, polarities or shadow function info out of to understand them better. The ISTP interview was still very interesting to see the scope of ways the same type could present in different ways than my experiences though so still quite useful, but would love to see a group/venue to discuss it more.

    Thank you, Bridgette! I will get that audiobook and start listening to it right away. I also hope we have the chance to connect in person someday ?
