For example:

Listening to a dog bark. When our brain focuses on recalling the sound of the dog barking, you heard last week.


Si (introverted Sensing) can be best explained by comparing it to Se (Extraverted Sensing).

In Se, the individual experiences the environment the way all of the senses report, immediately and in real-time. With Si, the individual functions in mostly stored memories of previous sensory experiences.
