    What's with the intuitives and X-men mutants analogy? If we're going that route, then I must say, the only member of the team that even remotely resembles an INFP would be... Wolverine! The sideburns are a dead give away. If you disagree then...

    The descriptions act like intuitives are the superior beings that have super powers that the sensors don't. lol

    Does this really still happen? I can't remember the last time I saw this on TypoC. Maybe on PersonalityCafe.

    But yeah, my best friend is probably an ESFJ and SP's are some of the coolest people around. Se über alles.

    Like I said, I haven't seen it happen here in a long time. That attitude isn't part of the "forum culture" anymore at least.

    Your OP is also full of trite stereotypes about intuitives, ironically. People who live completely in their fantasy world are schizophrenics, not intuitives. I know how to tie my own shoes and do what I need to get where I want.

    I don't agree that N is so bad. I would say my gut feelings are really good and the fact that I like fantasy may be hard on me, but at least my life isn't boring. Thinking in advance is also very good trait. I am not saying that there aren't bad sides, there are always good and bad sides, in N and S too.

    I would agree that S may be more underrated. I personally love many S people as they are more 'alive' as living more in the moment. But I have really healthy S traits. I am able to let myself go and enjoy in a moment when with others, I just never loose focus on my plans. S people might not be worried about the future so much, but they could also have a healthy side of maybe having in mind what matters to them.

    I think that S and N may be considered here too extremely. People are just complex, in a way we all have S and N, just depends which dominates and none of it has to be better than other. What makes a person better than another are that person's level of 'mastery'. I don't know if you get me. But there are smart people, some kill people and some are like Martin Luther King. The fact that someone is smart therefore doesn't make them necessarily 'better'.

    Each type has their strengths and weaknesses. Someones idea of which strength is the best overall or which weakness matters least is a personal opinion and thus is entirely subjective. Naturally some strengths are more important on some specific tasks, but everyone can develop those in themselves, and there is the perfect task for the natural strengths of each type.

    Online, intuitives are probably overrated - due to type descriptions glorifying them.

    In real life, I don't think that's the case.

    I think with regards to N descriptions, they're going to attract mistypes from S's who don't fit in / relate to their peers (as N descriptions emphasize the 'differentness'), as it's an illusion that all S's just totally fit in and such due to S-dominated (supposedly) world -- as well as smart S's who can see the big picture. There's definitely an N=uber-intelligent leaning that isn't usually emphasized in most S descriptions. [I still wonder how many people type stupid N's as S's, just because they're stupid N's, and N descriptions make it sound as if all N's are blessed with miraculous insight and intelligence, lol] The stereotypes continue online, though it's subtle. I do think it's becoming less of a problem though.

    But yeah, as @Agnes noted, the other element is that I think many people are more balanced, have learned to go beyond their preferences, so don't mirror the archetypes to a T. So the descriptions become less relevant to those people I think.

    There has never been an S-dominant society, bar enclaves of monks and schools of physicists.
