    Default Are we over-assigning N to people here?

    About 25% of people are Ns, but in these threads, N gets assigned to about 75% of people, it seems. Introversion too, a lot. Is it because since we're a bunch of Ns, that we just like typing other Ns, or is it a bias that makes us want to type people we like as Ns like us?

    Are artists putting out false N vibes of appearing "deep" and introspective, but are not?

    I think there is a tendency toward N bias, for those reason you mentioned.

    However, another possibility is that N's are drawn to other N's work or art so to speak, so the enjoyment of the art, or what have you, is "pulling" to certain people. Or it could be something else all together.

    "Oh, yeah, you can put an S in your type .. .. if you're completely shallow, unable to grasp theoretical concepts, stubborn and set in your ways, and subservient to your instincts.

    But, wait. That's impossible. You actually understood my post, so you must be one of us. Congratulations! You're part of a special and elite minority. Club N.

    Will you help us rage against the S establishment? Please? We.. we need all the help we can get. The whole world is against us, you know."


    This is the message that's sent all the time. It's like everyone's playing out a damn caricature.

    Are artists putting out false N vibes of appearing "deep" and introspective, but really it's just shallow art?

    Some of the most shallow people in this forum are allegedly N.

    most of the people who post here aren't Ns.
    it's possible that this place is more attractive to IN__ types, but i really doubt it.

    anyway, iNtuition is given more glory by any popular typological writer. it starts with the inclusion rate: fewer people in the world are Ns.
    as a natural reaction, humans [the reader included] are prone to grabbing up limited resources -- exclusion is unbearable for most people, even if and especially if they don't know what they're being excluded from.

    and people around here definitely do not know what it means to be an iNtuitor.
    so we all mark ourselves with the N because it makes us feel like we're in the in crowd too.

    as for the OP - people like the characters they type in movies etc.
    they want the characters to be part of the in crowd with them.
    it's all about creating a cush living space with a nice recliner for the psyche in these threads.

    no one is here for learning or professing - it's all about pleasuring the psyche, and that's why we have a disproportionate number of N typed people on the forum, and in this sub-forum.

    You're right.

    To expand on that.. often, part of that shit is about every trait that isn't I, N, T, or P.

    Or so the perception goes.

    Maybe because INTPs are most likely to not annoy other people directly and to keep to themselves.

    Off the internet, I mean.
