    Some of the most brilliant people I know are Ss. Esses aren't really that bad if you appreciate their abilities and complement them with yours.

    Openness is the key. And if they are asking a lot of questions, it's probably because they are interested and 'want to do it right.' So that is probably a good sign.
    If you are interested in language, words, linguistics, or foreign languages, check out my blog and read, post, and/or share.

    I'd say the most important thing is to remember that the types indicate trends and cognitive processes, and that not only is there variation among the types, there are also a lifetime's worth of experiential effects on cognitive processes, not to mention the various complexes people build up about themselves.

    Just because you see someone writing with their right hand, it doesn't mean they're not left-handed. They could very well have had a long progression of strict teachers.

    Many people fall closer to the center of S and N.
    I value both S and N, greatly.

    Furthermore, by claiming N as a conscious preference, doesn't mean one is intuitive.
    That's right, it really doesn't.

    What one prefers, is not necessarily what one actually is.
    There are probably "sensors" who are infinitely more intuitive,
    than many who claim intuition as their MBTI preference.
    To not know why that's true,
    would mean someone knows nothing of their fellow man:
    the conscious and unconscious aspects of SELF.

    The word "prefer" is kind of confusing here. I think it means "what functions do your mind default to", as opposed to "what functions do you like best". However, when people take a test, they might choose based on the latter. I read somewhere that people can test the type they would be attracted to or admire most, as opposed to who they really are.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I assume many do that.
    I don't give much weight to the types people claim to be.

    True story: I finished my MBTI first, then an INFJ chick, then some of the ESTP guys ran overtime, and they had to talk to figure out what their answers would be. Most people took 45 min on the test.

    Maybe you're just a completely unbalanced and immature INTP who didn't really have to think about any of the questions because you've never run into situations where you had to exercise your opposite traits, and these people you criticize have much, much more depth than you do?

    I dunno. Just a possibility.
