    That is interesting, thank you for pointing that out. I hadn't thought of it quite that way.

    I think it's just hard (in some circumstances/contexts) when you realise that some interaction you had with another person meant something entirely different to them. I suppose that could be somewhat more likely across the S-N divide. But I don't think it's confined to the S-N divide or that it always happens in those interactions.

    lol, so true. especially across T/F boundaries. and even Ne/Ni. and between individuals.

    the gaps between people are interesting places... sometimes frightening and disheartening, and other times electrifying.

    ah, good point. sometimes the important linking occurs afterwards, instead of before.

    Interesting conversation with my brother slapped me from left-field when his only comment to my 15minute ramble on theoretical physics was "Well, that just took all the fun out of that."

    I'd covered every possible reply he could think of so....

    Recognising which conversational expectations are unrealistic is essential to enjoy the various interaction styles.

    I agree with your first sentence sooo much.

    I have found this to be true to me, especially with SF's, of whom I have many in my life. I appreciate them but feel at a loss sometimes because it feels as if nothing I said actually made an impact at the conclusion of the conversation. Perhaps they feel the same way. More often with N's, I feel fairly understood. As though they hear the intent behind the words, as I often hear between the lines myself. I have a bad habit of listening to the background vibes and addressing them instead of what was said. I find it throws S's off when I do that.

    I would have to say that I communicate more easily with N's than S's but I have very few around me and so I have adapted to a degree. I have grown lazy about trying, sigh.

    What an interesting comment. Could you clarify the difference you see between meaningful and interesting in this context? I'm having a hard time imagining them separately since talking about a meaningful topic would be interesting, and having an interesting conversation would be meaningful (to the relationship, I guess).

    Do you just mean like playful bantering/small talk vs Serious Business?

    LOL my INTP brother does the same thing, but a skilled Ne would be able to draw a loophole or create something completely outlandish - even "Sensory", to augment the Ni's material. Sometimes that means pointing out an INTP's self destructive characteristic to bring them back to the real world.
