    I think this thread could be considered a bit of an over reaction. My vote goes to the N's for internet surfers. The internet is a good way to get lost, and ignore the real world... that's what I would suspect an N to do once they found the internet. Let's ask everyone, one by one, why they use the internet, because obviously we can't settle on a sample size.

    we'd never get a proper sample size for analysis on this site alone! :horor: plus, it'd be a biased sample...

    I usually have several windows open... one for this site, one reading news on the Yahoo site and one on Wikipedia... because you can never know too much

    I can't tell if you're sarcastic so I'll assume you're not. The internet is hardly abstract at this point. It's extremely data-filled. It's only "abstract" as much as watching TV or reading or watching a ball game is "abstract", in that you're not actually physically doing something. But there are plenty of stereotypical S things online. ("how to fix a car!" "how to explode things in cool ways!" "the best places to travel and travel tips") and lots more things that can be enjoyed by Ss (and Ns) online. Obviously. There's like a kazillion sites online, there's gotta be something for everyone.


    Rather than partake in Internet forums, SPs prefer the following activities:
    • Gardening
    • Parasailing
    • Playing basketball
    • Shopping for bright-colored clothing
    Parasailing, ok, and gardening in theory (but it's a lot of effort).

    I know we're ADD and all that, but we really don't need to be running around 24/7. I'm way too lazy for that (and it's hot out). Still plenty of "inside time" to waste on the internet.

    Consider how many posters are here, arguably one of the more intuitive-positive sites out there, and think about the sites that would be more S-popular.

    Which in turn means that at a time it was, so all we have to do is pick a time (turning point) where the internet became more concrete.

    I feel left out now. What is this "life" and where can I get one?

    It'll get extreme sometimes and I'll have something like 15 windows open, but I just restarted the computer earlier and haven't worked my way up to that again yet
