    Then there's the people you grew up with and associated with -- I'm a "N" but I live a very SP life, thanks to the influence of my SP mom. My sister is an SJ, but we were very, very close growing up and I like to think my NF influences rubbed off on her! I can talk to her more easily than many SJ's I know -- in fact, I usually have a very hard time talking to SJ's. Type is way too complicated to reduce it to the direct infuences of four simple letters!

    that's exactly it.
    kiersey had it all wrong. type has very little to do with communication style or behavior. kiersey insists that you can predict behavior based on type.

    in one light, you actually can, but there are so many potential manifestations of those behaviors which can be predicted that you would just as well be able to predict it simply by watching individuals, and ignoring type.

    the only of the four letters which really has any sure observable tendency is E/I.

    introverts prefer not to overextend themselves, where extroverts fear not experiencing it all, but that actually nothing about how they do their thing, whatever it may be.

    excusing that, there is no one thing that any of the four letters or the four/eight function models can truly grasp onto.

    S and N aren't polar. They are still major dividing factors. If you want polarization, read about autism.

    i was simply explaining why it's easier and more likely for an iNtuitive to gain the upper hand in using their Judgement functions.

    this is to say, iNtuition figuratively flourishes Judgement.

    i can't understand why you people think i'm talking about guarantees and sure-things.
    i don't even think i used the word "all" in my OP. i don't think i used "every" either, and if i did, i'm certain i didn't use it in modification of a description a typological tendency.
    Sorry OP, most people aren't like NTP's; they won't notice the nuances in your language.

    we reference them differently because they are different.

    i'd actually prefer to distinguish between P and J [in my opinion, the only division that ever really mattered, and ironically, the most outrageously misunderstood] but the last time i tried that, no one even bothered to read what i had to say.
    Agreed x1000

    I'd like to read whatever it was btw

    Also its not about who's messy and who isn't, much deeper than that...

    Do you leave doors open? or closed? Metaphorically speaking of course

    That simple fact alone says a lot about a person

    the truth is* a preference for iNtuition isn't what helps Judgement. it's not as if Intuitive information is easier to work with, or better information or any of that.
    Intuitive information is easier to work with for intuitors. Sensors perceive and experience reality directly; intuitors tend to put the variables together to infer based on long term data what probably *should* be happening. They'd have you believe that it's because they choose not to use the S approach, that they're "above" it or something, but in reality they simply cannot directly experience their surroundings with the level of clarity that (proportionally intelligent) Ss can.

    well that's nonsense.
    You mean that's been your assumption, right?

    iNtuition is a function which depends in part on the immediate sense impressions and with other sense impressions.
    stop right there -- no i'm not describing Si. that's not the end of it.
    I think you're overstating the importance of the whole physical environment vs. inner ideas thing. That's not really the crux of S vs. N...S/N is really fundamentally just a difference in scope:

    In a long line of chalk boards, S is standing directly in front of one and reads it with total clarity, but is not so good at thinking about how far his chalk board might be from others.

    N can tell you which chalk boards are closer or farther than others, but has a blurry, generalized view and, most importantly, cannot actually read the chalk boards!

    S prefers to get an in depth, detail-oriented understanding of the real things themselves, the essence of the thing (it doesn't have to be a physical object!)

    N prefers to think of things in terms of their relationships to each other. It doesn't experience the essence of the thing like S does.

    I know an ISFJ guitarist who has near perfect pitch. He immediately knows whenever anything is off key because he hears a combination of notes and just gets in touch with the immediate essence of what C# is.

    I can't do this; when I make a mistake all my notes go off key by the same amount. They maintain the same relationships to each other because that's how I conceptualize them--S hears C and E and G; N hears a major chord. They could move around, and as long as they've all moved the same amount, N wouldn't know the difference.

    ESFP pointed out some things about shading and coloring on a poster in my room the other day; I never noticed them because I had already generalized the whole group of colors and shapes as "a poster" and moved on to thinking about how it compares to other groups I've called posters.

    this is the truth: iNtuitives, you do notice concrete details.
    you just don't make yourself consciously aware of them until they become relevant.
    This is a good point, but we disagree with the Sensors on the definition of "relevant."

    therein lies the distinction between the Ss and the Ns. this is something to look for.
    Yes, agreed.

    Yes, but I don't see that this gives Ns an overall advantage--unless you're biased toward thinking that the N perspective is inherently more valuable, which means, not surprisingly, that you're probably an N.

    Typology is all about recognizing the ultimate subjectivity of your own value system and understanding the value in others.

    Sensors, after having taken in everything they can about the wrench itself can't really learn anything more about it without access to something it can be used on.
    True, but they're so much better at actually using it that it balances out. It takes many intuitors a while to accept that they aren't inherently better than sensors.

    the iNtuitive on the other hand does not necessarily require environmental stimulation.
    as a matter of fact, they can continue to form abstractions which can themselves be used to birth newer ideas/hunches.

    in case you can't yet see, the Sensor is limited by his environment.
    the iNtuitor is limited only by his mind.

    if the iNtuitor isn't born stupid, their judgement faculty will surely have much more information to work with, and will likely be more finely tuned.
    No, only more fine tuned toward working with abstractions. N is so comparatively weak at actual tactics for implementation of its grand vision that it really needs a strong S perspective to get much done.

    I can see why you'd say that being limited by the environment puts S at a disadvantage, but that's based on N bias--you undervalue direct, experiential command of the real environment.

    i just didn't go into detail 'cause i don't really know what Feelers think about.
    i sometimes think i do, but then i get shown up by an astute F, and it's happened enough times that i have to admit that i just don't know what you guys think about. i can't keep track.
    Ahh, there you go. Recognizing your own probable weaknesses and mistakes...plugging leaks. Good boy.

    I'd like to discuss more about P/J as well; where have you written about this?

    I recall Geoff saying it was the most fundamental axis, and I think now that that may be actually true, though I disagreed at the time.

    It seems what drives most people's general attitude is whether the Judging function is directed inwardly or outwardly (which is what makes one a P or J, respectively.)

    Most people seem to be either outwardly organized and more negotiable on the inside, or vice versa. This has a ton of implications, which I'm sure we'll get to later.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I don't necessarily believe that Ns or Ss have an advantage. I've met more than one S who can think and theorize circles around me. The crux of my issue however, is this ...

    Intuitives are forced to live in the Sensor world simply by the virtue of having to work, eat, pay bills, use tools, etc. It is virtually impossible to live entirely in the Intuitive world. Therefore, Intuitives have some sensory experience by virtue of being exposed to it every day. My question is, how do you expose a Sensor to the Intuitive world? I do know some Sensors who live quite happily exclusively in their S world. There is no need for them to visit the N side as they are surviving just fine without it. How do you pull somebody into the N world? Is it even possible?
