I think when we compare ourselves to the other temperaments, we mostly see the crust, so our intrepretation of what it means to be that type is warped and more extreme than it probably should be.


    Mmmmm pie.
    Your pie analogy makes my mouth water. Steak and Cheese please.

    The problem is people have more balance, like you said. Then in order to make a system you need clearly defined edges, otherwise you have nothing.
    So you make the categories and in order to describe and differentiate you go out to the edges. But the truth is more complicated, as you are well aware.

    The question is, which quarter would you eat?

    the, uhh, apple-y one?

    I don't think I should eat a whole quarter of a pie. I'll get fat.

    Or perhaps a Sensor here has been through experiences that made an appreciation for intuition part of their own reality.

    this is a good point, and i'm beginning to understand why. it would seem that S's aren't aware that there may be any greater reality (for lack of better wording) than their own. once exposed to the notion that there is something greater in a familiar fashion, they suddenly may accept the differences.

    i made a graph about this at one point, and what you said above fits it perfectly.

    I don't think anyone on this forum is typical of people I meet in real life, simply because no one I know in real life seems interested in a forum like this.

    I'd assume it's easier for IS's to grasp, but harder for ES's. A lot of ES types apparently don't like getting into discussions about something not tangible or right in front of them.
