    I think ADD(or at least some mild version of it) is more common in INTJs also than people might think, also seems to be pretty common in ESFPs, but yea probably most common with ENFPs.

    Dunno, it seems to be the most common with ENFPs, but i have heard of many INFPs also. But my ESFP(or maybe, just maybe ENFP) cousin has bipolar type 1

    I very much agree with you...INTJs and INFJs as well. All of the INFJs (3), all of the ENFPs (3) and 1 of 2 INTJs I have known have received an official diagnosis of the Inattentive form of ADD (w/o Hyperactivity).

    I mean, when I think of what it is to be an N dom and then consider the symptoms of Inattentive ADD... it's like ???

    well, one of my biggest questions that I didn't really address in the OP is:

    how can S/N preference be discerned in individuals with severe cognitive delay?

    Bipolar most common in ENFP? Like e2 or e4s? I'm not disagreeing with you necessarily but it is difficult to imagine merely due to my own experience with them. I've noticed a correlation with ENFJs but I would be interested in hearing what you have to say.

The best way I can explain the various texts would be to say we are all born iNtuitives and as time goes on our brains become more and more specialized...but for whatever reason that process is halted in the iNtuitive. Basically, an iNtuitive is an adult making use of a brain that was only meant to take them through the first few years of life.

    I can't say one way or the other...but if I was forced to choose I would say that 'disorders' would be correlated with N.
    so how do you identify a preference for intuition in an individual who appears to be incapable of understanding or expressing abstract thought?

    and in response to the bolded: what about people who never had the normal childhood brain, who were born without that intuitive foundation?

    Does that imply children with aspergers or autism?

    I was thinking of children with mental retardation. I've seen plenty of obvious intuitives with aspergers and autism.

    (was asking about this bc my brother has a disorder that caused severe retardation and I'm trying to figure out whether he could be intuitive...but what Starry said suggested otherwise)
