    Default Prejudice against Sensors?

    On the forum, Intuition is held in high regard, and there's many instances of looking down on Sensors. I understand that the forum has way more intuits than sensors, but, why this prejudice? What about sensing (and its typological defintion) that makes it seem 'less superior' to intuition (as per the commentaries on this board)?

    Often times people with an inferiority complex feel better about themselves if they talk trash about those not like them.

    How's that for a theory?

    Nice (and obvious - I assumed this primary reasoning in my OP when pointing out there's more Ns than Ss, hence, easier to trash talk with one's ilk, about those that are different).

    I think there's some inherent misconception about sensation (and its definition) that fuels this fire.

    hat about sensing (and its typological defintion) that makes it seem 'less superior' to intuition (as per the commentaries on this board)?
    yes, what about it? why cant sensors figure that out? most function definitions are shallow anyway, but they come from intuitives who at least know one of the intuitive directions from their own inner life. they have to come up with a superficial analysis of sensing, based on observation. i would have more fantasy about it, but i guess they dont like to speculate too much.

    and you are not helping.

    Sensor: [angry at the suggestion] What do you mean, I'm not helping?
    Typeguru: I mean you're not helping! Why is that, Sensor?
    [Sensor has become visibly shaken]
    Typeguru: They're just questions, Sensor. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response... Shall we continue? ... Describe in single words only the good things that come into your mind about... your Sensing Function.
    Sensor: My Sensing Function?
    TypeGuru: Yeah.
    Sensor: Let me tell you about my Sensing Function ....

    IRL there is a prejudice against Intuition. The minority always gets singled out and put down.

    I would like to add it's not so much of an inferiority complex as seeing the totally different style of thinking. People are afraid of what they don't understand. A common fear leads to hate to soften the fear.

    I personally like sensors, I am not biased against them. I consider them good people who I can learn from, since I mostly understand things on an intuitive level.

    EDIT-

    So true. I get called weird for my intuition all the time. Pretty much everything about it seems weird to some people, how I communicate, the intuition itself, etc.

    With sensors being about 75% of the population, many of us have been clashing with them throughout our lives. And now we're on a forum where we are the majority. So it makes perfect sense that some would vent about sensors, especially SJs. It's the least I would expect.

    Also, we have to admit, intuition is pretty effin cool.
