Whether we are S or N, we must live in a world filled with objects with which we interact using our five senses. <--- This seems like an unavoidable part of the human experience. So would it not stand to reason that iNtuitives must become at least somewhat proficient in the purview of Sensing because they must use their eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and hands? In other words, regardless of preference, the Sensing world is unavoidable.
Whereas, it is possible for those with a Sensing preference to operate relatively oblivious to the world of abstraction. In other words, a non-well-rounded S can conceivably focus on the concrete world around them and give little thought to concepts or theory or abstract ideas.
Thus, my theory is that it usually falls upon the N to communicate in his non-native S language with Ss. By the same token, Ss very rarely try to communicate with Ns in the language of abstraction. In fact, they are usually unaware that there is a level of abstraction going on in their dealings with Ns.
BTW, let's not lets this thread deteriorate into another, "It sucks to be an N living in an S world" thread. N is not superior to S, nor S to N. The purpose of this thread to discuss the theory I'm proffering, which is:
- Ns learn to communicate in an S style even though it's not their native language more often than Ss learn to communicate in an N style.
- The reason for this disparity is that even if one is born with an N preference, one cannot escape operating in the concrete world we are all born into. Thus, Ns have more practice with thinking in Sensing ways than vice versa.
- Points 1 and 2 explain why Ns feel like they are always the ones having to accommodate Ss, whereas Ss do little to accommodate Ns. It's not that Ss are inconsiderate per se. It's just that Ns must learn to speak in S whereas, Ss do not have to learn to speak in N.
