    I don't see why the notion would be that complicated for one to grasp.

    And reading is widely considered to have more Introvert appeal than anything.

    Extroverts are typically better at talking and listening than reading and writing.

    I personally suck at listening. I just regard other people as too slow on information transmission. So I'll either multi-task or start daydreaming.

    For me it is much simpler.

    Internet: I like it because it is full of everything I am curious about. It's also a frequently changing technology -- two things I like.

    When I first came to this forum it was like being in a room full of people with interests and temperament similar to mine. As an NT, this was unusual and fulfilling.

    Plus everything Aimahn said.

    Uh huh.

    People always favor like-minded others. It's a natural tendency to flock together. We're social creatures after all.

    There's a disproportional number of Ns... in particular introverted Ns gathering on internet forums like here and INTPc because Ns started them. As you said, discussing theories and philosophy is our natural style. Clearer it'll be easier for us Ns to integrate than Ss.

    As to superiority... that's silly. How do you define it? Different types have their own natural abilities. It's senseless saying one type is superior to another because we'll never agree upon what traits are the most important.

    What people don't usually voice is the importance of having other types involved in discussions. As nice as it is hear here our ideas validated by like-minded others, other types bring in different perspectives that helps us see the larger picture. (This is my Ni talking ) I'm glad we have our small population of active sensors around.

    Life, "real life", in general is like this. This is how cliques in school gets started, and clubs. Essentially any group formed on a voluntary basis would have that.

    considering im bringing this up in the very environment it refers to, i know it might be difficult for people to consider it objectively, im just hoping we can favor the scientists and theorists in us for once and not make it personal.
    As oppose to shouting matches insisting the superiority of one type against another? It's been a long long while since we had one of those around here.

    there is a big difference between INFPs and INFJs. also, i hold no opinion on tolkiens type lol i could care less, he writes good books and thats the point. but i notice INFJs or really XNFJs in general seem to use a lot of adjective in their writing. not sure how XNFPs would go about writing. i know the stuff i write has an "emotional" structure to it with "intellectual" hooks. i have a whole theory about types and music with that. u could be completely right with whatever you said before.

    The INternet is like a whole other world. I'm waiting for the self-excommunication of the INternet from the real world and the establishment of the INternet as it's own sovereign state. It shall be called "The United INternet of Libertarians" and have it's own government, army of deadly computer hackers, complex INternet social structure and continually be at war with the real world.
