This is how I often describe my memory... some people they can remember everything about their experiences...and I really can't. It's like random flashes here and there. And it's not in a chronological order.. I don't remember literal details very well at all. Facts I can remember...but real life things, I just can't.
So I've always likened my memory to RAM.
this sounds very Si-Ne to me. In general, i'd expect Se-Ni users to have better memory for literal physical details (as they're taking these in more thoroughly in the first place via Se). storing concrete data (Se) in an abstract format (Ni).
Si-Ne users i would expect to have a better memory for abstract data (facts/concepts), storing already-abstracted data (Ne) in a concrete format (Si).
So before it even reaches Si, Ne's data is already boiled down to its abstracted properties.
It's amazing how much tangential information some Si users can hold and concisely reference.

sitbone maybe you just answered a question I had for a long time why the way I stored memories seemed more Ni instead of Si....
If it's almost immediately abstracted as it's perceived, of COURSE it's going to be a bit blurry!
That makes so much sense...
Because I've explained it before that I tend to just store layers of life experiences, removed from what really happened, so that just the general idea is there. That fits right in line with what you said.
So I guess I'm having a hard time seeing what Si would be like without the Ne abstraction then... I mean, I think I've seen it in the real world, but it would be nice to understand it better.
My step-dad I think is an Si user...and a song triggers an experience and he can relive it..hear the music, see who was around him, remember the feelings he had emotionally..
That same song triggered in me the emotions I have (in present context) about how sad I am that I lost my grandma at an early age, how much she must have loved me to cling to life as long as she did, and I haven't had her in my life since I was 6.
Yet even though I didn't attend the funeral, that song represented the death of my grandma because my mom told me they played it at her funeral.
I wonder what kind of picture my dad would pick to represent his inner world. I imagine it's very vivid and full of life.
