    It shouldn't be controversial to say Ss tend to be less imaginative. Also, imagination can be related to I/E, it's kind of an introverted activity.

    So an ISFP could very well be more imaginative than an ENTJ.

    I was thinking that as well, that introverts are more withdrawn and in their heads, so they may be more imaginative in ways.

    Also I'm not ashamed to say that I'm not as imaginative as a lot of the Ns I've met. It comes in spurts. I get more imaginative around my N friends though.

    T is also data btw, not just S. S and T are data, N and F are "imagination".

    Ss have imagination, too, of course!

    In terms of mystery novels think Agatha Christie vs. Raymond Chandler (I like both!) but one totally has an N style and the other an S style...and both are totally imaginary.

    Actually, S people can come up with some of the most vivid imagery in writing and film, relying upon the five senses to build a sense of atmosphere.

    In my experience I definitely think this is true.

    Not really, S and N are data, F and T are evaluations of the data.

    I go into my head and live my ideal life when life is incredibly stressful.
    Thankfully reality is just awesome at the moment so these days my imagination is looking towards the short term future and everything I'd like to accomplish

    I think that he means it's more of a realism vs non realism thing. S and T are realistic, N and F are non realistic.

    No I don't agree, N deals with not-well-defined information, it can't be data; the opposite is valid for T. At least...in the model I use.
