    I think it's safe to say that if N/S were from a single gene, N would not be on a dominant allele. Natural selection would have made the gene extinct by now.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Here's how I know I'm N. When I go out with my artist sister to eat at a new restaurant the ride home will be filled with comments about the environment, such as,
    S "Did you notice the pretty blue cornflowers on the plate?"
    N "What? No, I thought the plates were white.
    S "Yes, they perfectly complemented the sage green and brown pin striping on the wall paper.
    N "What? No really? I thought the walls were white!"
    LOL! I can't tell you how many times I've had variations on that theme!

    2) how they frame their ideas

    Please explain further.

    I would if i could. When typing people i just don't anchor anything they do or say in particular, nor do i try to explain what I see via cognitive functions since multiple functions/combinations of functions can be used to explain any behavior. I just watch them and LISTEN to them intensely, and my intuition does it for me. Its pretty neat. I could be off greatly at times though and would never know....

    But even if I am wrong much of the time, I'm supremely confident that most people basically "Wear" their type on their body, on their face and especially in their voice. The trick is to find someone you know that is, say INFP, and study their mannerisms until you can spot them in a stranger.

    Makes sense. I don't understand the "covet" part though. What impression are you forming there?

    Different forms of media have different advantages and disadvantages. While supplementing materials from many forms of media is preferred, I've presently declined avid bookreading for its disadvantages.

    I just mean try to get a feel for where their mind is coming from and where they are going with what they say and what they believe, as its a good sign of what they are after.... NFs a more principled/harmonious world, NTs the elusive/novel forms of knowledge, SJs the next rung on the ladder, etc

    So Ss are more dominant then Ns, since she decides what the conversation will be about. And Ns the passive one. That makes sense.

    I often wonder if there is not an hidden correlation between N/S and F/T, sometimes they seem to come out as the same thing, F being N, and S being T. Governed by the P/J and E/J for direction and conclusion vs perception. Anyone else notice this? I know, not very well explained, but system analyse isn't exactly my strong point. I just found it peculiar, and wonder if it is true?

    No, she just dominated the conversation about the environment about which I was utterly lost, because I had dominated the conversation over dinner about ideas and was focused more in a world of possibilities and ideas than wall paper and fine china.
