    Default Sensors Growing up in an all Intuitive Enviroment

    Ok so we've heard plenty from N's growing up in an S enviroment, but what about S's that grew up in an N enviroment? Do you think they had it just as tough? I'm going to say yes, for the fact that my brother, is an ESTP but both of my parents are Ns and he was the "problem" child. He got out of there as soon as he could, and always had a hard time communicating with my family to an extent, we always butt heads with him. On the other hand I'm the child, that my parents want home for the holidays, while they enjoy seeing him, he needs to be gone in days or else everything will be tense, me on the other hand can usually stay as long as I want and there's very little tension. He's not a bad a person, he's one of the smartest people I know but I think the fact that he's a Sensor and my mom, my dad, and I are all intuitives cause some communication problems.

    Perhaps worse.
    I think N's handle S's much better than the S's handle N's, because S's language is usually concret, and, altough it is not as stimulant for us, it makes easy for us to understand their views and motivations. We may feel the S's don't understand us, and possibly feel wierd in comparison, but we'd still understand then, which may not be the S's case.

    My house seems to have one person of each SJ variation, dad is ESTJ, mom is ISFJ, and I'm almost sure my 2 brothers are ESFJ and ISTJ. How cool is that?
    They are often boring, I can't question their actions, much less their mainstream views. Anyway, it is not too annoying once you accept they won't change.
    I wasn't a ''problem'' child, by the way, my grades were fine and my parents probably just viewed me as spacey. I' ve never been their favourite son tough.

    parents are INFP and ENTx. we aren't close.

    I don't think S-N (or type at all) was a particularly important factor in our many differences, though. (and having a pissing contest with Ns as to who has life the worst would be a bit silly anyway)

    it wasn't aimed at you, just in general.

    I guess I am the lucky one being that in my immediate family it was just me and my NF mom and NT dad .

    I think that's part of why I am super N. ^_^

    The fairer comparison is: Ss that grew up in a world that is about 20-25% S and 75-80% N. That world doesn't exist.

    Edit: I'm only saying that because an S that had two N parents still has a majority S world outside.

    the world might be mostly s as a whole, but there's enough n's in the world that is possible to grow up in a mostly n enviroment.

    Eh hem... post 2...

    I grew up in a household with an interesting bunch. (All in different sections of the house, we weren't all mixed together.)

    ESFJ mom
    ISTJ grandfather
    ESFP uncle
    INFP aunt
    ENFP grandmother..

    I had more conflict with the 2 J's than I ever had with the 2 N's. It wasn't any major problem, but I think that any personality related conflict in my house had more to do with J/P than S/N.

    This J conflict continued into people I lived with in my adult years. I'm a pretty extreme P at times, so I imagine that's where the issues came from. (Me, not them.)

    I have an INTP friend, with an INTP father, an INFJ mother and an INFP sister. People in my town generally dislike the family, and always say there's something odd about them. Anyway, the middle child (of course he's the middle child) is ESTP. His older Brother, my INTP friend, was valedictorian and is now doing research in theoretical physics, and the ESTP is always being unfavourably compared to his academic brother, because he is impulsive, lets his grades slide, not because he isn't smart, but because he spends more time playing sports, and dabbles in drugs and likes to party. This guy is a very normal male teenager, but is made to feel like a huge screw-up oddball.

    I don't think it's easier to grow up in an N environment and being the only S, I think it's just less likely to happen than the other way around.
