    I don't know. Feeling is usually a "core-brained" (the limbic system) thing, and thinking is usually a "front-brained" (frontal lobe) thing. As for N and S, I know the motor cortex is located in the lateral middle of the cerebral cortex across both hemispheres and the occipital lobe is located at the back of the cerebral cortex across both hemispheres as well, and S's probably have more connection to those. And I'm not exactly sure where iNtuition comes from, but I'm pretty sure it is more developed process, so it probably originates somewhere in the cerebral cortex.

    I generally know that I am dreaming. However, being able to control a dream is a different matter. If anything, I'm just following a story my subconscious makes up.

    I think I do this sometimes. However, whenever I start trying to control it, I wake up. :/

    It irks me when people act like there's some locus for one kind of super-general brain activity or another.

    Is it scientifically wrong? To be honest, this is only what I have been taught with no self-research.

    In the case of some of these general cognitive activities, it is.

    Yes, I do consider this a general "phenomena" where it either happens, or it just doesn't no matter what the person.

    I can't do very much in my dreams. To get anything, I have to picture them in drawers, and to get anywhere I have to use elevators, and to get anyone I have to call them on a phone. If I want anything badly enough I usually can't have it because my fear of not getting it results in various dream-forces stopping me from getting it. I'm wondering if views on the "controllability" of the dream world have to do with type. I'm also guessing it has to do with loci of control (possibly somewhat related to type). Also optimism/pessimism--the latter definitely is a large factor in my dreams.
