I am personally a fan of the Sensors are more intelligent theory aswell. The thing is, it's ultimatively hard for me sometimes to express a thing I have understood my way, in a way understandable for a general audience. I even have problems to understand certain concepts, for example modells in 3D-Geometry, I sometimes need like years to teach myself that a thing is like it is, without me really being able to abstract it. This for example a topic with equations about mechanical stability, for example bar theory. Rigid Frame Statics was one of the most difficult things for me to visualize and I often experience this issue with sometimes rather simple physical or mathematical modells, I just cant grasp because I dont think straight.
I read on another forum once, where an INTJ and an ENTP had to solve an equation. The entp bended and twisted the equation so he can solve everything for one variable. He caluclated billions of mistakes in it while twisting and turning it for the variables and in the end his solution was wrong. The INTJ just put in the values he already knew, then made the equation more easy and solved it for the wanted variable. I can understand why the entp did that, cause he wanted a big picture equation. One you can use later with other variables aswell to solve them quickly. But what he did forget is that sometimes an equation of this kind is not possible or even not needed and his demand for "doing it with style" just will get into his way. I experience "doing it with style" issues regulary with mathematical problems, I need to solve.
I doubt a prim Ne is prone to scoring high on IQ. I tend to score around 125 on those online-based ones in english, for what they are worth. But I doubt I have a very high IQ or am uncommonly bright. I am rather uncommonly retarded in many aspects. The only thing I am quite good at, is a good imagination. That goes like a redline thru all my life and has helped me in many different ways and stages of life.
