The SP way is more like a new twist on an old way. I can see that now that I'm in my 30's, but for most of my life, I would have told you that all my ideas/methods were original. So it's not surprising I would choose the "N" answer to many questions.
    Couldn't agree more.

    From the ISFP description on best fit:

    Probably Im the happiest when things are just a little different everyday. I dont want to commit to any particular way to be. I want to be able to be a lot of ways.

    Maybe that's why I've changed my type at least six times now? And up to the last few days I was confident I was an 'N'. A lot of it, as well, has to do with the fact that I am intelligent, was awarded academic scholarships to high school and college, I -gasp- love to read, etc. You get the impression from reading these forums and the type descriptions that the SP types are numbskulls who spend all day fooling around. Oh wait, I do that... but I'm not an idiot. But yes, I would rather go to a concert where I can experience the music, not to mention get drunk (although every time afterwards I reprimand myself to stick to the three drink rule... but then a new situation arrives and I want it! And why not? It's fun!) than sit around and think up theories.

    Life is for living, not for analyzing, in my opinion. Although I can 'play' in that realm as well.

    I've got an ISFJ friend who thinks he's an INTJ saying "Yea, that's definitely me"
    Then I got my ISFP friend who thinks he's an INFP.
    It just makes me wonder how people who claim they are N are really an S.
    Is being a sensor really so bad that people can't accept it as part of their personality?

    EDIT:
    This thread is about natural sensors who think they are intuitives not about my friends. To cancel out further misunderstandings.
    I definitely know what you mean. Roughly, I think about 70% of the population are Sensors...and WAY too many people I know, statistically speaking, are claiming to be Intuitives. Those people also seem to be rather fond of S bashing. I suspect because Intuitves have the connotation of being more visionary/smarter/original etc... They are able to make connections and understand things on a large scale. Consequently I will venture to say the majority of great thinkers/visionaries were Intuitives. For me it is hard to tell whether some of the people I know are true Ns or not... Some aspects of their personalities would lead me to say they are definitely Ns...but when they can't keep up with my ideas/theories/correlations... I start thinking S...
    It is interesting to note the inferiority complex some people have about their Myers Briggs type... usually with N and S and to a slightly lesser extent T and F. Accusing an N, or a N who is an S in denial, of being an S is very touchy.

    I started out on this forum as ISTP and half the members agreed but the other half which also included you said I was INTP so I might be an N who mistyped myself as an S.

    taken from the linked thread below:
    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...-5w4-intp.html

    So you see if I really am an N I was one who claimed to be an S of course I should not judge you by this post as it is 3 years old but still you were proven wrong assuming I was an N mistyped as S!

    btw the OP said I could be called an INTP on the below link:
    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...25420&page=253

    And Speed I don't see why you think of yourself as an S anyway. For all I know you could be another N mistyped as S though only you could answer that for yourself, just a possibility.

    Dude, the most interesting part of this thread was finding out that you used to get annoyed.

    But now you can even tolerate Riva!

    i haven't read the whole thing but the descriptions can be confusing.

    i remember when i first joined and reading the difference between se and ne...it was sort of hard to distinguish.

    and i only sort of understand se now...just enough to get that i'm not very good at it.

    Oh, this is only a shallow bit of what I used to be Rasofy.

    This thread sure is a neat lil' bit of nostalgia.

    Apparently, the two things that have been relatively consistent for me are my preference for intuition/openness and my sardonic attitude toward forum quibbles.

    I can't believe I read this whole thread.

If he wanted to be accurate (and extroverted about being accurate), he could find a better way of describing what it is appeals and why.
    Yeah, I think some of it is the fault of folk typology and poor descriptions/explanations in the literature, as well as how utterly abysmal the tests for MBTI are. My hubby’s ESFP cousin took the test for school and came out ENFJ and now goes around calling herself ENFJ. DUDE… arrrgh. I’ve tried explaining the function-attitudes and giving her a more complete and sound tour of the framework, logically leading to why that might not be the best fit, but each time about 30 sec into it her eyes glaze over. Whatev.

    Then you have Ss that would never want to be “accused” of being an N, like my ESTJ, hehe. He would consider those fighting words.

    If one studies something intensely you get to where application is increasingly adept and precise. Like a doctor interpreting an EEG or other medical test. There is always room for error, but that’s the benefit that comes with intensely applying oneself to an art or subject.

They may think they are looking into the "deeper" parts of themselves, and that that must be their "true" selves because of it being deepest.
    This is a distinct possibility.

    Exactly. Just like Fs reason and Ts feel/emote/value. The preference is still there. But functions are subject to development.

    And to address the subject of S bashing – it’s stupid. Thank goodness for Ss… if the world were nothing but Ns… the horror man….

    .
    Me too…. omgosh Oaky…. We think exactly alike…. I’m definitely an INTJ too.

    I have fooled you all! I am @mooseantlers!
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
