    As for Neo being a sensor... come on, would a sensor really be keeping a hollowed-out copy of Simulacra and Simulation to store software in?

    * ETA: I'm not talking about living in the Matrix - rather that Neo, for instance, seems to be detached from the "real world" (and by that I mean the Matrix world people think is real!) when we meet him at the beginning of the first movie.
    This is the single most idiotic post I've read in a long time. Congratulations.

    Ehrm... So the only thing I could gather from what you said, was...

    Neo is an iNtuitive because he seems "detached". This is insufficient evidence.

    The "detached" vibe can be attributed to multiple functions, or function orders... It really doesn't suggest anything by itself. Anyways, I would describe Neo as more "apathetic" than "detached". This, to me, says more about F vs T. So really... The only thing to be gleaned is that Neo could possibly be a T user of some sort. There's nothing, at least in your analysis, to suggest N or S.

    Other than that one flimsy argument, I have yet to even understand why you "have a hard time buying any of the three main characters as sensors".

    That is, if I knew which characters you were talking about.

    Morpheus seems to be an NFJ of some sort, (I'm leaning towards INFJ, because he strikes me as an NI dom).

    Neo could be ISTJ;
    He was rather cautious, and even refused multiple times to enter the matrix, before finally being convinced.

    Trinity... she seemed like an archetypal ISTP to me, and Ti being the dominant function would be consistent with her "hacking" talent. Although I could be wrong about this one, ISTJ seems like a contender. After all, she seemed to put a lot of trust into Morpheus, and the Zion Prophecies, (in contrast to Cipher).

    Or maybe she was just a dedicated ISTP.
