    It's really... not. Unless the definition of Ne isn't what Ne actually is.

    edit: ENTPs and ENFPs can be pretty damn shallow though.

    For example, an SP friend and I both want to be novelists. She writes occasionally--"when inspired"--and can never seem to finish a book. She doesn't stay on the same project for long enough to do so. Her writing is pretty, as she focuses on finding the perfect words to describe the surroundings of her characters, but she told me she has trouble finding the big picture of her story.

    I set a goal to write a book with the specific idea of what I wanted it to be, set an amount I had to write a day, and started on my goal. In less than a year I had an edited book and a credible literary agent. (I'm still waiting to hear back from publishers!)

    But anyway, the point. NJ's are more likely to focus on that end goal of publication and learning everything they can do to achieve it, whereas SP's are more interested in the process of getting there. Of course this isn't a given with everyone -- there are successful SP writers -- but it could be a starting point.

    And I'm still sticking with my theory that because there are more N writers, they are more likely to create N characters
    Good points.

    I definitely think Ns are more likely to be writers. And Innies.

    I think this over-assigning N phenomenon occurs most with IxxJs. It's so much more "enigmatic" and "mystical" and "deep" to be an Ni dom than a "boring" "conservative" "shallow-minded" Si dom. The contrast that people stigmatize between Si and Ni is like the contrast between Sloppy Joe's and filet mignon.

    Over-assignment of N doesn't occur so much with ESPs, because Se is still highly-prized (just in a different way than Ne), and Se-doms are very proud of their "bad-ass" Se. Also, those with auxiliary S functions (ESJs or ISPs) still have their tert N-function to make up for the "lame S" stigma.

    Depends on how you look at it. Your edit and original post is mixing contexts of the word shallow without really checking what I am talking about, sounds kinda shallow

    Yup, if Si was a genre of music it would be gentle elevator music.

    Mixing contexts is Ne.

    Yeah, errr...

    That's supposed to be Ni as the filet mignon and Si as the sloppy joe. I fucked that order up.
