    ill just give one example on where you are going wrong: sensing is not about details, its about having preference to trust the sensory information(or what it directly releases within) over possibilities hidden beyond sensory information. it is true that sensing types are more in tune with details in sensory information, but thats simply because they are consciously reviewing the sensory information more carefully -> sensing does not mean "to be detail oriented", it means being more conscious what comes through eyes and ears and because consciousness is more filled with sensory information it is trusted more and paid more attention to.

    could write similar correction so pretty much everything else you said, but i cant be arsed to do that because it would be too much work

    I've had similar thoughts and ideas about sensing, independently developed. Not everyone is as into playing follow the leader as others do.

    Although when it comes to this theory and the people who engage in it, that sounds about right. And since the people ARE the theory in this case....it seems quite accurate that anything coming out of it should be a series of cobbled together biases and generalities.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    If that is the view you want to take, then the goal should be that the biases you cobble together are more than just semi-related.

    They should be highly germane, insightful, accurate, on-point, lean, and robust.

    The point was that his observations do not hit these marks very well.
