In this episode, Joel and Antonia talk about why the world needs Introverted Sensing (nicknamed “Memory”).
In this podcast you’ll find:
- Joel’s concern about the sound quality of the podcasts may be his Introverted Sensing (Si) wanting to make sure things are captured well for posterity
- Joel’s grandfather collected important pieces of his and his family’s past and preserved them beautifully.
- Once he died though, all the treasures were divided up and sold.
- We can’t guarantee that future generations will value the things we value.
- Antonia worries that she doesn’t have the required documentation to prove she is an expert in the field she teaches. This may also be how her Si shows up
- Joel likes tracking information so he can see the timeline of his growth and development.
- Si sees paperwork as binding and authoritative
- Systems breaking down can be upsetting to Si.
- It’s interesting to come face to face with your inferior function and recognize all the ways we are influenced by it and repelled by it.
- Si inferior can come up as an encouragement to pause and consider safety.
- Is it okay to do this?
- “If you’re disciplined and diligent, it should be okay.”
- “Be responsible.”
- Those thoughts are more familiar with Si higher in the stack.
- Si brings beautiful things.
- The world desperately needs good quality Introverted Sensing.
- Pacing is essential for Si users.
- Si is an amazing steward of the past.
- We have an unhealthy addiction to novelty today.
- Young people are untethered from history.
- “Every recall is a reframe.”
- There is no such thing as an unbiased account of history, but that doesn’t mean we throw the baby out with the bathwater.
- Burning of Alexandria – how much further along would we be if that library hadn’t been burned?
- It is hard to understate the importance of time binding and passing info on to future generations.
- We think we don’t need to bind info anymore because the internet stores it for us.
- But there is a difference between passing info and accessing info.
- Passing info brings reverence with it.
- Most of what we have given to us we don’t know what to do with because we don’t have the proper context.
- Si is how we don’t repeat our past failures.
- If we didn’t have memories, we wouldn’t be human.
- Some people think that If we buy into the history, we have to buy into the narrative.
- “Those who forget the past are destined to repeat it.”
- It feels like Si is under attack in our world now.
- It’s not going to go well for us if we choose to ignore the lessons we have learned, like vaccination.
- Rites of passage are necessary to teach future generations the lessons learned by previous generations.
- Si is trying to acclimate to a culture that is requiring more extraverted intuition than ever before.
