I wouldn't say that someone who really fit in all that well in real life would probably spend as much time online talking about theories and shit like a lot of us here do
I'd say that someone who doesn't necissarily fit in with most people they know (or get really f***ing bored with them) will probably both be more likely to research personality theory (why don't I fit in?) and more likely to kill a lot of time fooling around online and such... and let's face it- a lot of Ns are kind of weird

I identified more with the 4w5 description, but together they cover it pretty well.

I never felt rejected by others or hindered by society; I thought that the kids my age were somehow lacking and that others seemed to think me different than I was. I rather rejected the external world at that time in favor of my own, more fascinating mind.
When you find a description that fits you so well it really is validating, but I agree that it can cause arrogance and bias. I see it more as a scale; my parents are both ISFJs, but my father is much more interesting to talk to than my mom.
