    I'm waiting for the argument where someone comes in and says that a lot of people who are S's are mistyped (as N's) and really there are not so many N's.

    I think there are a lot of S's here actually.. but they are all correctly typed SPs and SJs. There are a few borderlines ones that may be N (or have already switched to N), like myself.

    It's a myth.
    Just like any celebrity who has an ounce of depth, must also be an N.

    Somewhere along the way someone started a rumour that S's lack depth and it snowballed from there..

    It is of course, nonsense.

    The raw statistics alone suggest that S's dominate in numbers EVERYWHERE, I don't see why here would be any different.
    Especially because I know quite a few deep, sensitive, artistic, emotionally intelligent and philosophical S's who just love the internet.

    What makes sense would be the internet is dominated by Introverts.

    I agree with this.

    The internet perhaps "serves" possibilities and abstract exploration for N's, but for S's it's the real world that must be explored. Although there's also practicality involved, If I had to estimate the population of the internet, I'd say the average users at a significant period of time is 60% N and 40% S, which is in clever contrast to unverified estimation that there is 60% S and 40% IRL.

    Then again, the Internet is a storage of concrete data---particularly media.

    Ok, I'll bite. Source? Or have you just personally read AND accurately personality typed everyone on the internet without meeting them in person?

    *cough* It's an estimation, a guess---a speculation to serve as substitute for vague data. The origin of the idea is "more N than S but S will still be significant".

    There are tons of Ss on the internet; on Facebook and Twitter.

    And then the deeper you go, they start to disappear, like sunlight while walking into a cave.

    Do they happen to only be Ns on the internet? To be honest I wouldn't think so.
    Ns like to go to areas on the internet to stimulate their intuition whereas S's go to areas on the internet to stimulate there senses.
    So it's not surprising for a N not to see as many S's in the places they often go to on the net.

    Nonsense.

    For one.. I know many self professed N's who use both twitter and FB regularly.

    Once again someone is suggesting that S's lack depth, when Introversion would likely be the daddy of depth much more than N or S and even then.. I know some very deep E's as well.

    I would like for the S haters to just once back up their claims with something beyond a misdirected sense of self importance and a tendency to perform self fellatio at every opportunity.

    N elitists are some seriously ugly people I am ascertaining. Get over yourself.

    It's not really a S hater / N elitist thing. It's that the more abstract and removed from reality the subject matter is, the less Ss tend to have an interest in it. It's a preference.
