    Lets hope that we have the Blood Bowl by then (and that we discovered a race of Orcs to play against).



    If you're talking about football, as in "soccer", then my apologies.

    Do you find this is true?
    No. I'm definitely an S and I talk more about what you identify as an N. My husband who is a strong N talks more about football than anything.

    I think the easiest way to figure out an N is just focus on what they are saying. N's tend to jump from subject to subject quickly. S's like talking about something in particular. Also lots of N's have zero patience with explaining something if it goes over your head. An S is more likely to explain the situation. Also N's understand generalities better. I can say something like "People who buy Hondas have mother issues." An S will make sure I know that this isn't the case for every Honda buyer. He'll point out exceptions. An N will understand that I don't mean all people who buy Hondas have mother issues, rather I've just noticed a correlation.

    N's also have the ability to assume (or are lot more willing to do so). A lot of my conversations with S's go something like..

    Me: Assume xyz, would that mean abc?
    S: Maybe, but we don't know xyz.
    Me: I know, I'm just saying, if xyz, then abc. And abc leads jkl.
    S: Perhaps, but xyz isn't known yet.
    Me: You suck.

    Going by that I'd be an S.

    I'm always seeing the exceptions and hate it when people make sweeping generalizations even when I know they don't necessarily mean it in the literal sense.

    Why would a strong N talk about football more than anything? That doesn't even make sense, I'm sorry. I can see an N liking football...I know a couple of INxx who like soccer, for example, but they talk about things like politics and culture and philosophy more than anything.

    I'd chalk it up to Ti.

    Because MBTI doesn't measure passion. I have an INTP friend who is the dictionary definition of the type, and he's a basketball coach who loves football. In fact, that is how we met, through other friends in New Zealand who like football. He is passionate about sports, so he'll talk about sports more than anything. He just talks about them in an N kind of way (history of strategies, trends in formations etc.).

    Is history of strategies or trends in formations of sports really an N thing, or just an intelligent, educated SJ thing?

    Lots of SJs play fantasy football. Ss do have fantasies, and can appreciate subjects that have a more academic bent (lots of doctors, lawyers, history professors = SJ, especially STJ) ...it's just that they fantasize about more tangible things, and collect facts.

    ISTP makes sense too. Lots of sense. Ti theorizing about athletics.
