    Smile Sensors Appreciation&Envy Thread

    On this, here, forum Sensors seem to be under appreciated. The reason probably being: there's more of us, Intuitive types.

    So we boast about our creativity, vision, etc, etc.

    Let's share what we love Sensors for! (At least I love them, immensely. )

    1. They really live in the World - we spend so much time in our own heads, that we miss half of the beauty of the World. It's always some Sensor that points you out: look at this beautiful sunset! (tree/bird/sky) And you slowly move your focus and finally SEE.

    2. They really now how to enjoy simple stuff in life, the stuff that matters - how many times we, Intuitives eat without eating? Chicken salad miraculously turns into plan for tomorrow. I love to look at people really enjoying their food. My Sensor mother always brings me back from imaginative voyage with the question: 'Is it tasty?' THAN, I finally start eating.

    3. PERCEPTIVENESS. Yes. I barely notice the difference between 'more or less clean' and 'clean', when it comes to an apartment. Or clothing sometimes 'Huh? Where did this stain come from??'

    4. Love for the manual - Have you ever seen an ISTP driving a car? Mmm... I consider myself a good driver, but these guys really become one with the machine! Or Sensors painting, gardening, DOING something. Looks great. We seem to always be SOMEWHERE THERE in the land of ideas.

    And now... LET'S SHARE!

    I think that it's people not feeling like they fit in so the reaction on the forum. It comes across as

    N's are better than S's
    I's are better than E's
    T's are better than F's (You can't forget the "hey, F guys don't fit in either!?!?" on this one)
    P's are better than J's.

    The part of the personality that doesn't "fit" is what people are going to be rabid about.

    Sensors are great, fine, wonderful, boring, stupid, creative, brilliant just like the N's. But they fit in better so they get a bum rap in the "we don't fit in" mantra that plays so well.

    Damn, I failed at 3 out of 4... No, wait - 'F-guy'. 2 out of 4.
    Yeah, sounds reasonable. Still it stupid to vent here about people who 'don't understand you', especially that it usually means that you don't fully understand them.

    Yup. Still we can write what we like them for! Are we capable of this?

    I think its all a plot by the INTPs to push how better they are then everyone else.

    No, I'm just capable of analyzing things. I don't actually do what I'm supposed to.

    No, no, no! We're not turning this one into INTP-bashing thread!

    I do appreciate SJs' attention to detail. It's very helpful.

    I like the SJs' practicality and the SPs' simple approach to life. Not "simple" as in stupid but as in not reading into everything and causing trivial self-inflicted problems.
