    This is my experience, too. I have to consciously remember to include details, and when I do include details or try to explain my process, I feel like I'm being either condescending or boring. When others are talking to me, I'm frequently trying to get the gist of the story. Too many details obscure the point.

    That must be it... I get those blank stares or screwed up looks so its becomes automatic to fill in. Thanks for clearing that up.

    How true!

    The Si thread not long ago helped me understand both Ni and Si better.

    Mistyping one of my favourite characters as an NP, and having to go through all the NP types, and then having to expand to all other types, to finally get the revelation that he's an SP, helped me understand both Se and Ne better.

    You made it sound as though your life is heavily populated by stupid people. I can't say I know ANY actual stupid people.

    Wow, I don't even know what's going on with this thread anymore but this is the quote of the day! :

    I think you hit the nail on the head.

    I noticed on the boards when someone vents/criticize/complain about a certain type or 'quadrants' like NF or SJ or ENFX etc., they much of the time they're really just venting about a particular person IRL. Some thorn in their side, a dysfunctional/family member, annoying classmate, bastard of a co-worker, etc.

    I think like any true bias, personal grudge gets extrapolated to a whole type, and it's easy to say, "I don't want to deal with this type anymore, because my roommate was a XXXX and I'm angry as hell, and I'm not gonna put up with it anymore!" Or else you take the bad personal experiences from a few people and life events and voila! -- you've synthesized volumes of MBTI theory.

    So, yeah, 10 points for you Pure_Mercury! BTW, I don't get from you posts that your ENFP, but then, I have no idea how to type people based on posts.

    And ---

    I'm sure someone else may have echoed all these sentiments though, somewhere in this 17 and growing pages...

    Yup and not only that but last night (I'm usually on late) there were 5 active threads compared to a usual minimum of 20 or so. Just isn't the same experience coming here.

    Don't hate me...I'm sure people hoped this thread would just fade into the background.....

    In real life, where there are more Ss than Ns, Ns are the ones who are made to feel stupid. The only people who ever insult my intelligence in real life are S types. They accuse me of not having common sense, or my ideas not being practical, or just plain stupid. Maybe the pendulum swings both ways, but it just doesn't look like it - it's an optical illusion.
    I can't say it's the same for myself, and I'm kind of puzzled by this because it just doesn't reflect my own experience or the experience of the N's I know, or how I see people interact around me. I just don't see people insulting each other all that much, and based on this thread, N's insult S's just as much, if not a lot more, when it comes to a lot of this stuff.

    Now I've never really felt like I fit in anywhere - so maybe I've always felt rather out of place, and have never felt I jive with our 'culture' at large (this is an ongoing theme) - but I think some of it is self-imposed. N's might communicate differently, or see and process things differently, but I think the act of communication falls on everyone's shoulders equally - and there isn't a 'right way' of communicating or processing events. Just lots of different ways.

    While we're talking about S stereotypes, I think it's an equal fallacy to say that by being N one is therefore automatically impractical, completely clueless about one's surroundings, or ignorant of how the world works and what's realistic. Maybe many N's are this way, but I don't think it has to go hand in hand.

    Or maybe since I think I'm pretty practical and realistic, even though I am in introspective-musing-Ni-Ti-land half the time, that means I'm an S?

    I guess I just wanted to post this because I get equally aggravated with some of the N biases out there - that simply aren't true for all N's.

    Like others have said, N's don't monopolize the Ni/Ne functions, just as S's aren't the only ones using Si/Se. We all use bits and pieces. It's how we function as human beings, and adapt to things. (And yeah, some will neglect or discard some of the functions for one reason or another.)

    I wouldn't want to be a sensor. Just like I wouldn't want to be a woman, a baseball fan, or a Christian. I think that says more about me than it does about the judgements I'm making about other people. For all I know, you're all liars, but I don't care. Nice trick. I'm not sure if it worked out how you imagined it would, but you had an idea, and you tried it. I could say something like "That's what ENTPs are good for, experiments!", but for all I know, you're not an ENTP, either. You're just you. People have questioned every single one of my letters and offered contradicitory explanations for each.

    It's possible to rationalize anything in the direction you want to go. If you claimed you were an ISFJ, I'm sure people would start finding any reason they could to make it seem right. Even if I was ugly and stupid, if I wanted to, I'm sure I could come up with lots of reasons why I'm still better than other people. I think people look into this stuff waaayyyy too much. How often are we actually learning something compared to how often we are just filling in the gaps to make sense of things?

    I have to agree with that.

    I dislike very much all kinds of prejudice. As much as N people claim they face prejudice in the real world as much they take their revenge in the online world. I'm N anyway and don't see why we even need the debate who is the smartest. Who cares? What does it matter? It's just bringing yourself up and looking everybody else down. It's the same as who is the prettiest, who has the longest eyelashes, who is tallest and who the shortest? So what?
    Blah blah blah. I'm so tired of it.

    I think very funny example of all this was the thread where a man had made a video and put it into YouTube claiming he is the most intelligent man in the world (IQ 210 or something). Straight away people here started to say that the most intelligent person on planet must be (of course) the same temperament as I am. Hello! So what? Who cares? Does it make me any better person if that most intelligent person would be NF? No, it wouldn't make any difference in my life.
    Blah once more.

    S & N people (if such a difference really exists) are just people with DIFFERENT INTERESTS. That is all. S & N people are both living, breathing, thinking, loving, hating... people. They are all people. S people are not from Mars and N people are not from Venus.
