    I've never heard someone say they don't like a sensor because of a non-sensor quality. It always has something relatable to S/N, or SJ/NP, because it's usually SJs getting bashed.

    I typed myself as ENTP because when I discovered MBTI I read several descriptions for each type and found that the ENTP one consistently described me very well, in many ways. No, I would not type myself as a Sensor if the supposed type bias in the literature were more S-favorable. What a nonsensical implication. If you're "very very sure" about something that you so obviously can't know anything about (my personal feelings and motivations), maybe next time you should double check your own poorly functioning iNtuition before you mouth off a bunch of bullshit.
    Heh, that's not exactly discouraging. I've made my point anyway.
    Not really.

    That's what I already directed at him, Mr. Outcast of the Blue Man group (cuz of the 'tache). He has yet to reply.

    I really want a reply, actually, because it has popped up a few times on this thread, this reasoning: but, they have done it to us IRL!!!

    "Stupid" people are called sensors.

It's astonishing that your reading comprehension could be poor enough for you to think I meant that. I just think it's an awfully big coincidence that (and I have gotten nearly all of my friends and family to take the MBTI at some point) such a high majority of the people I've been close to throughout life have all scored xNxx on the test.
    Of course not... They'll only say that so-and-so are different than me... it's so awkward dealing with him... I'd rather not. But unconsciously the thought runs across their mind that they don't like non-group members because they're different.

    However what Nadir was referring to is clique mentality... which can run quite strongly on forums. Actually it was one of the reasons why I left INTPc... I couldn't take the drama against "non INTPs". I've been told things are better now but I like it fine here.

    No, I would not type myself as a Sensor if the supposed type bias in the literature were more S-favorable. What a nonsensical implication.
    Question for you...

    If being N will get you tarred and feathered, would you pronounce your N-ness? Or keep quiet about it? Surprisingly many people will go along with the trend...

    Well the S/N divide does have the greatest disparity in IQ of the preferences from the studies I've seen.

    I'd have to see the occurrences you're referring to. But most of what I see is harmless jesting.

    Surely you don't expect to hear inconsistent complains on an MBTI forum.

    Think about a rant about an ISFJ that's a total space cadet. First thing you'll do is question whether the person has been typed correctly.

    As I said previously, we understand the world based on our learned framework of how stuff is suppose to work. Throw something contrary to it and our minds will try to redirect it to something that does fit the system. Or else we completely ignore it and it's not important.
