    Default Always needing more solid information?

    Is there a correlation between MBTI types and always needing more solid information?

    Off the top of my head I would say the most obvious ones are S types in general because nearly all of the information I have read points towards sensing types always asking for more information to confirm that they are correct in what they know or understand.

    This is especially noteworthy in areas of education.

    However I find that with this theory most people will be asking for more information since there is no solid ground to stand on besides group agreement on what a type constitutes. From this angle any type could be a seeker of more information in a situation of little confirmation.

    Despite this S appears to be the fact-checker of the situation whereas N is the certain-speculator. I'm generalising of course and I could go into more detail with the functions but I didn't want to wall of text people too much.

    Besides that could make up an interesting discussion later on.

    Thoughts?

    Definitely a correlation with S.

    Btw, I thought you were ISFJ.

    Sounds a little Te to me, also.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Is that a question or a statement?

    Yes I think that is one of the functions I would say as well.

    Needing solid foundations upon which to build a model is more related to extraverted thinking than past-reference points of introverted sensing, or present experiences of extraverted sensing, at least I think that's how it works...

    I hear you! I can be like this too. It was meant to be a question although I ended it with the wrong punctuation mark. lol, you definitely come off as very ISFJ in my opinion

    A type description without examples or at least specifics is a cruel one, but like you say, potentially impossible. That could be why I've had such a hard time typing by them.

    This was embarrassing in school for me, and it went on to become embarrassing at work. People with this trait risk losing out in school if they are afraid to ask all of the fact questions they need, fearing they have too many and will look incompetent, suck up too much of the teacher's time, etc. In primary and secondary, I sucked it up and did what I had to do to maintain my points, but burnt out in college.
