    What S people do/think in cases when this happens?
    Ask specific questions about specific details, and try to break it down step-by-step.

    I ask what the problem is. How do I know what to focus on if I dont initially know the problem. Detailed explanation of what happened is a result of the problem, whats the problem?

    It depends on how important to me the "things" that went wrong are. If they're just telling me a story about something that happened to them that doesn't directly relate to me, then I would probably ask questions to try to understand better, but if I still didn't get it, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    If, on the other hand, these things going wrong actually involve me having to take action in some way, then I would be much more insistent on getting direct answers to specific questions.

    I have a question for sensors.

    How would you rate/describe your inner thought process?
    I can somewaht suppress my abstract myind and swich into a sensing mode for a short amounts of time and I need to invest energy to stay this way.

    But when I do that everything around me becomes simple. Since the entire analysing and planning process is suppressed.




    Question for Ns: Do you feel lost or dumber whan you suppress your N ?

    What S people do/think in cases when this happens?
    Well, if someone gives me a "detailed explanation" of what happened, I will normally understand.

    But if it is not detailed enough, and I want to understand, I would say,
    "Wait, back up. - How does this relate to what just happened?" or "What do you mean?"

    I actually don't remember a time where an N said something and I didn't understand where they were coming from. Usually they make it clear enough. Skipping around sequence or stating more meaning rather than solid facts about something usually still gets the point across. Someone would have to be pretty unarticulate to try to give me a detailed explanation about something and then for me to say "I don't get it."

    usually I make people repeat themselves if i'm not paying attention rather than I don't understand.

    This is from my experience, so it may not fit 100% into S and N tendencies. Also, I am sure there are more, but I'm just thinking of these off the top of my head.

    S:
    - Linear thinking [A+B=AB]
    - Pays attention to tangible things [details]
    - Observant of their environment [in most cases ]
    - Good at keeping schedules when they are written down [follows protocol?]
    - Usually at least "somewhat" organized

    N:
    - Non-linear? [A+B=C?]
    - Most likely the one staring off into space wondering "what's the meaning of life?"...
    - Usually not aware of their environment? [tend to miss details]
    - Are not good at keeping a schedule? [doesn't like protocol]
    - Usually at least try to be organized

    yea-
    plus not keeping a schedule and not liking protocol, and being disorganized is more of a P vs. J thing rather than an N vs. S thing
