    I'm getting a little bit better at reading N vs. S.

    One thing I noticed about N's is that they are very curious. They like to say things like "I wonder if", "imagine if", "what if".

    Sensors tend to go more past or present oriented, talk about things that have already been done or are currently be done. (They are easy for me to tell, too.) I'm still not an expert at reading this but that little trick is making me better.

    Yeah, honestly the first thing I thought of when I saw this topic title was "Ns love hypotheticals." Now, obviously, Sensors ask "what if" questions too, but they tend to be more along the lines of stuff like "what if it rains later?" or "what would it taste like if I mixed these two sauces together?" whereas intuitives tend to ask questions like "what if you were reincarnated as fruit?

It does not mean we only use one hemisphere for something. Also the wiring for each person is highly variable. The hemisphere of the brain corresponds to the "correct" activity only in "majority" that is like 60-70% of the ppl. It's true that for certain tasks, like talking... some areas are more important than others and can be affected by brain lesions. (e.g. Broca's aphasia). But those tend to be very specific disorders. When you talk about something like intelligence which is a combination of many processes, your whole brain is involved. Not just the right hemisphere. This is my main objection.

    The idea that creativity originates from some pattern of activation I agree to... it's just people generalize too much when it comes to using buzz words like "right-brain thinking" when what they mean is lateral thinking.

    I need to bring in the point that IQ tests are changing in that they're focusing more and more on fluid intelligence. As in testing for something that's completely abstract (what's next in the pattern of shapes etc) and bears no resemblance to practical use for real life. If that's your definition of intelligence, then fine by default Ns win.

    That's not what intelligence means to me though. To me, how effective and efficient somebody is at solving a problem... and consistently being good over numerous scenarios is a better indicator. I've seen many a times SPs out performing NTs...

    My guidline for guessing the Esses from the Ens is what subjects the conversation tends to.

    Esses seem to talk more about people, places and things and Ens about ideas.

    The correct appellaton is INTELLIGENCE Quotient, Eck. Which makes this statement absurd.

    Are you one of those more mature people who didn't make any sense all their lives and think that extra years are not only an excuse but also a free pass into bullshitting their way through life?
