    Yes, but can you tell fantasy from reality?

    Well I like to think I do, which is why I'm sensor dominant. I have no doubt I'm a sensor, I just enjoy jumping into the 'intuitive' world for a nice swim.

    Sorry. I didn't really mean to mess with your quote that much.
    Just had some fun. That's my take on it.

    I do believe that I am more or less well adapted nowadays. Not sure if I try to be or anything, it's just so much harder to talk to people... and share anything if I use my own language. That saddens me. if it hadn't been for this forum... I'd found something else to channel through. Heh.
    I'm happy being here though.

    OOT:
    How does S's react on the internet? Or web forums for that matter?
    How does it feel and how do you interpret the being? How do you see it? How do you live it?
    Heh, sorry. I don't mean to be odd.

    Eh, no worries
    You stated those 3 things into a better means of communication. [I think it was just 3 ]

    But by all means, I'm not assuming I'm an N. It might be kinda cool to N, but I'm pretty sure I'm an S. It may also have to do with the fact that I'm a 4w3 as well. Who knows.

    P+N is way to much.

    Would not trade my P for anything though . I dont really care about the other letters.

    Having a firm grip on what is going in is an advantage imo.

    I tend to use the preferring theory to experience, and look for a general pattern, because there are always moments of exception in everyone.

    I mistyped several ISFPs as INFPs when I got into MBTI because they are imaginative and creative and far less linear than most sensors in my life (and I relate to them because of Fi). However, the key difference still came down to theory over experience. They seem to trust in their own experience over theory, and I tend to trust theory over experience, even my own. If I get too conceptual for them, their eyes glaze over. If I use some illustrative example that relates directly to them and their personal experience, they grasp the concept readily. My ESFP sister won't even hear my hypothetical musings - it's not real, so it's not valid. I don't think all sensors are that extreme, but it's the tendency & a pattern I look for.

    I also look for how connected to the moment they are. Even ENxx types sometimes get this look in their eye like their mind is somewhere else. I notice it less with sensors - they are engaged in the present. I'm sure Sensors daydream, but it seems to be in moments where the present is not stimulating them. I can daydream to escape stimulation, or it starts a tangent of ideas that are more fascinating than the reality and I zone out.

    Also: my family is full of Sensors who are avid readers, of fiction and nonfiction. My mother and I actually share a preference for classic literature, but when it comes to nonfiction she prefer biographies and I prefer psychology (or is that fiction also? ). So that doesn't seem accurate in determining type to me. I also know Ns who are not readers, but that does seem rare.

    many Ns, like me, don't walk around discussing theories, and some people who seem like Ss do, so that doesn't really seem to work

    not enough evidence in daily life for me, how do you tell?

    Most definitely. I also enjoy psychology. Especially suicide case studies. Morbid..but, well, I do. Anyway. I can tell what is fantasy and not. Most Ns seems to have difficulties and mix things up. Another difference.

    Or rather, a different perspective. Everything begins as an idea
