    Default Sensors in MBTI

    I'm surprised by how many sensors are in this forum! I didn't expect to see this. Most of the sensors I know seem to roll their eyes at the thought of Myers-Briggs. So, it's actually kind of cool to see so many sensors!

    So, I'm interested, how did you guys get into Myers-Briggs? (intuitives can tell their stories too)

    I just took the test and thought it was interesting. Learned more about it. Somehow ended up here.

    My ISFJ dad was into it, so I took the test at a really young age, probably too young (10) and got ESFP. Forgot about it for a few more years, got INFP a few times, then it just popped into my mind sometime my sophomore year. I really wanted to figure out where I fit on the scale. I dunno, I like finding stuff out about myself and I really like categories (that inferior Ti, lol). Eventually I just got hooked.

    At first i thought i was an intuitive, like i thought my dom function is Ne.. But i figured it's actually Se. [emoji14]
    When i tried to check the difference between esfp and enfp, i get esfp. [emoji14]
    Sometimes I'm an estp too.. I dunno, but i really feel i am very intuitive as well. Compared to people who we're tagged as an Ne, i feel like I'm more of an intuitive than them. [emoji14] well, compared with Ne peeps, i feel more like a sensor. So i am actually in the middle. [emoji14]

    Yes. Sensors are less problems, more happier than intuitives.. Thats why im trying to be more inclined on my sensor side

    I actually know quite a few sensors who like MBTI. SFs in particular like tools to understand themselves on a deeper level. Plus, the majority of the population are actually S types. If none of use were interested, I don't think MBTI would have really taken off the way it did.

    I also feel compelled to add that all the people I know who think personality types are hogwash are actually N types. They "don't want to be put in a box."

    Yeah I definitely heard the "don't want to be put in a box" argument before. Or "you can't put people in boxes". By an INTJ for instance.
    I try to argue that the way our brain is wired, or the way our brain patterns work, can be categorized to some extent just like the color of our hair can be, but usually to no avail. Then I stop insisting.

    It's quite surprising too actually how many people just don't want to know anything about it. I think a lot of people don't like delving into their own mind. Which makes me somewhat suspicious of them

    I was typed as N type for the longest time coz the S description was rubbish
