    S vs N distinction?

    I'm trying to type my friend and I have no idea if he is an S or an N so I was wondering if people could explain the S vs N distinction.

    Does he tend to talk in hypotheticals and "What if"s? This is more Ne than Ni but it is still a pretty good indicator.

    Is he more focused on/interested in what is (S) or what could be (N)?

    I'm a borderline case myself and tend to zone out to my own little world on occasion, but I'm much more present focused than future focused, and I tend to appreciate what is more than what could be

    also Ss are usually more detail-oriented and Ns are usually more big-picture people. S is generally more practical and N is generally more theoretical. N will usually take longer to explain to you how they figured something out, and sometimes will have no clue.

    on the big picture thing, I tend to see the big picture... of what's going on NOW!

    and I'm not detail oriented in particular there's a definite difference between Si and Se that people fail to discuss when talking about the differences between S and N
