    But what would stop a sensor from choosing an ambiguous painting? It probably won't work.

    It does not always mean such.

    I would asssume Intuitives generally like more artwork that encourages ideas and perspectives. Not necessarily the abstract form of what art displays.
    For example:

    A detailed picture provoking our imaginational thoughts. Perhaps abstract demonstrations of reality.

    Whereas something more 'down to earth' would provoke our thoughts on reality:

    Thank you, this is the reasoning I was asking for. I disagree, but at least you have a rationale. (I disagree that information gathering is the most significant difference between people, partially because I think a more important thing is where you go with the information you have. You can reach the same destination from different origins. ) I understand you're exaggerating to make a point, but Ss also ask how and why. We just rely a little more on the facts to answer how and why.

    3rd bold: it's not automatically clear, but it can happen EXTREMELY fast. older people frequently tell me I understand things about the world that took them 50 years to find out (I'm 19). it can also happen automatically, especially in N dominant people (ENPs and INJs)
    Congratulations, you're clever (at least, at some things; or at least, people think you are, at some things; or at least, they want you to think that they think you are clever at some things). What makes you think Ss are immune to this phenomenon? It happens when you're reasonably intelligent.

    As an S, I can tell you that I'm not below-average in my speed of grasping concepts.

    I agree that for the most part, when it comes to art you can note differences in N vs. S... but not always. The two images you posted could easily be N or S, though I lean more towards S for both. Your first image is rich in textures and colors, and is a bit impressionistic and therefore, I would think an extroverted sensor produced it.

    For S paintings--I would lean towards realism and impressionism...
    For N paintings--fantasy and surrealism...

    But this was something I noted in what I painted or drew versus my INFP ex that was also an artist.

    I would disagree with this notion as well. A high degree of detail or lack there of isn't really an indicator of S or N. However, on the point of an S creating a more ambiguous image, it could be a play on colors, textures, etc. I've created some ambiguous works of my own... sometimes to be light and impressionist, but to just sort of play around with my tools of the trade. I enjoy the focus, not only on the subject matter, but the focus on lines and fluidity, etc. These types of things will really catch my eye in paintings as well.

    Showing off with speed is really not nice in the company of a blind man like me .

    I agree with you, I think if you'ld boil down the whole N and S think it's very basically only a lot about perception, which is completly detached from reasonably intelligence. I once saw this diagram where dots were connected with each other and they said the S looks at the dots and the N looks at the connections. And that is reflected in my speaking best, I tend to talk about things leaving keypoints out. When I talk to my istp or isfj workmates they always will interrupt me and either ask me how I derived point A from point C or they will ask me, where the heck point B is. I tend to recognize intuitive types immdeinatly just via the way of communicating. It has all pros and cons, the s-way of communicating is very precise but slow and the N-way is fast and holistic but very imprecise and prone to mistakes or miscommunication.

    People who make tho some mysterious jedi force out of N-types and even relate their way of perception to a superior intelligence will fail I am convinced

    Here's a painting from a friend.. he's very detailed, but not like the above. I'm not sure what type he is sometimes..tbh. Just take the painting as is though. My point is that it's detailed, yet abstract. And if someone casually told me "Yeah, that's cool" and walked away, my own capacity for details would grab them by the neck and say "GRRR.. Look more."

    Now that's a very N image.

    I definitely like this one better, but mostly because the other one is incredibly boring.

    I really had to learn to talk precisely, an engineering education helped with that.

    Where I come from it's "precisly central", they all can go eff off with their constant need of correcting me. One day I'll plant a crap bomb here and rot this ugly country out from the face of the world

    makes me want to toss a pebble into the picture and watch the mixture of circular water effects with the one shown. Followed by as big ass a boulder i can find and see how far I can throw it.

    My Mom was an artist, and she always painted realistic reflections of objects. (Se)
    She was sensational at painting fruit and flowers. They were so realistic, it was stunning. She captured lighting and shadows to such a degree, you didn't think you were looking at a painting.

    There's an old story behind that link.

    Sim had insulted an ISTP who claimed to be "looking at the big picture." Sim thought it was funny, as if to suggest SPs couldn't possibly be "big picture" people. That's when I got annoyed with him, since I knew darn well what Linda Berens had written about SPs. That was the link I posted.

    This is important:

    Those with ISTP have introverted iNtuiting as tertiary (following Grant's model) and as adults, probably have had much opportunity to develop and use it. The functions do not operate in isolation, but in dynamic interaction. Could it be what looks like extraverted iNtuiting is really extraverted Sensing, with an introverted iNtuiting perception of the near future? Could this be the attraction to "big picture," "pattern" and "possibilities"?
    Last year I was reading poki's posts and I kept picking up an Ni vibe from them. I think I even asked him, "Are you sure you're ISTP?" Well, shouldn't we be asking ourselves why people are making such a big deal in this forum about S and N when according to data I have seen, SPs are the most likely to think they're N? And why should that come as a shock, knowing full well we do not just develop the first two processes? It is very sloppy thinking, indeed, if people don't realize that everyone develops their processes at different rates of speed, and by claiming to prefer S doesn't mean you don't use intuition.

    In addition, the biggest problem I see in this forum are people who are still attributing natural skill to the Dom function. Just because someone claims their Dom function is Ni or Ne, doesn't mean they are in any way gifted at "using" it. Frankly, they could be completely inept. So inept, they could actually use that as an excuse to think they're another type. I recall a member using that very line of reasoning for choosing ENFP over ENTP. I sat here thinking, "Did it ever occur to you you're really not an ENFP but an ENTP with poor Ti?"

    All food for thought . . .
