    I think this is right -- S knows how to organize and utilize the real world. They're the people who can give you not only directions but instructions, for stuff that you may not have any great interest in as an N but you need to get it done. S knows a method and they can show it to you so you don't have to reinvent the wheel. S is good for teaching N to follow instructions, I think.

    N can be extremely observant of details but it has to be something we're interested in.

    I think we can safely say that there are plenty of stupid intuitives too...

    I've personally known some extreamly smart and extreamly stupid people of both types.
    In the tests I have taken, many of the questions make me go WTF? at first and then I have to reread it once or twice to know what they're actually asking. I would think that N's would have an advantage as far as picking up on this type of thing faster, and since most are based on how fast you can complete them, they would probably score higher. I also would think that the S types, or at least SJ types, would be more thorough, I've personally always had extreamly high accuracy, but have gotten medium scores because I did it slower than most people.

    But hey, what do I know, I'm just a n00b.

    Oh and about how I figure out who's who, I usually just pick up on which one they extravert and then try to figure out where it is on their hirarchy.

    Lol, I'm going to use that at the end of everything.

    Sorry this post is referring to something from 80 yrs ago. Sensors and intuitives? Best way to find out is to talk to them.

    One big difference between an S and N is:

    The S is more practical, and cares more if something works or not rather than how. Less curious in general, and less creative and out-of-the-box thinking, but more down-to-earth.

    I know for a fact that I really don't care how something works and I'm not that curious, I care more about getting the job done because in the end, that's what counts. I'm definitely not that imaginative either, but I am practical.

    Is it true that an S will often need a context to something in order to grasp the idea? Or is that of an extroverted function?

    I'm so involved in these generalities

    But but what if you have a slightly different job? Knowing how it works could allow you to tweak the tool so it gets the job done better.

    I always like to be given examples when I'm being taught something. Unfortunately, not everyone's going to give you examples when telling you about something.

    Okay, it is true that both aspects count. Together, both qualities make up greatness.
