    I feel like we're speaking two different languages.

    And I'm neither theoretical nor practical.

    Though Si leads Ne for me by a hair, this is mostly due to the fact that I am very introverted, live in the past and have an aversion to change. My actual memories are fuzzy and I have a very limited ability to catalog details without some effort. I am not a sensor, even if I entertain the idea sometimes, because I still orient more to vaguely defined, flexible ideas than to concrete, practical details.

    I wonder if practicality might also be a divide between P and J. The extroverted judging being more practical than introverted.

    you're all missing the point. This is the main difference between S and N:

    S = truck drivers
    N = astronauts

    one drives a truck on roads, the other flies a spaceship through...space.

    No, no, no.

    STPs = truck drivers and cowboys
    SFPs = artists and insufferable divas
    SFJs = school teachers and homemakers
    STJs = accountants and uptight bureaucrats
    NTs = astronauts and brilliant neurosurgeons

    Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of astronauts were S's.

    and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of truck drivers were sexually frustrated.

While exhibiting many S traits, the last thing you would call him is "practical".

    While I think it's harder to tell S/N apart than the other 3, whether someone is "practical" tells you nothing. No idea is practical if it can't be used. The iPhone, bifocals, and light bulb were all invented by strong N's, and are very practical. Difference is they required looking ahead, and this to me is the biggest distinction between S and N - S lives in the moment, N lives in the future, but you can't say one is more practical than the other.

    One of the common traits of ADHD, mostly an N diagnosis, is impending doom. As an N, I can understand this, because I naturally think about how what I'm doing now will impact the future. Many NPs I know are best motivated by work that alters how people will do things in the future, even if it relates to something small - like changing how an industry orders parts from suppliers. Everything can be improved upon. Also noticed many NPs sometimes care a lot less about money if they feel their work will impact the future. Ss on the other hand will be happy making an impact immediately.

    I think this time distinction tells you a lot more about S/N then whether someone discusses theories. Some of that is the result of individual experience, not innate type.

    You're absolutely correct. Most of MBTI's ideas are training wheels oversimplifications of much more complex Jungian concepts.

    So we get all this crap about "Js are hard workers and Ps are lazy!" and "Ss only like real stuff and Ns only like theory!" and it's just ridiculous.

    MBTI works as a very, VERY simple overview of generalized behavioral trends, but if you use MBTI without any background in Jung's much more nuanced ideas, you're still just banging a 1/4" nail with a 12-foot hammer. You'll get certain general things somewhere in the ballpark of being right, but you're missing so much nuance!
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
