    I agree with this for the most part, except I don't think Ns are "losers" and I think calling sensors "the mighty and cheerful sensor army" detracts from the fact that sensors can be mean, depressed, or rebellious, and categorizing sensors thusly is like saying all black people can dance.

    Several people objected to the "joke" about sensors.

    Does this kind of joke bother you? Do insults about sensors bother you?

    Sensors have, at times, been treated as second-class citizens by the members of this (and sister) forums in relation to MBTI. Do you think this attitude is unique to this forum? Or will it crop up whenever you get groups of iNtuitives?
    Firstly, the fact that TG made the statement puts me in more of a position to scoff and dismiss her inane attitude. TG has hardly ever complimented this forum's atmosphere with anything but turbulent High School drama.

    The comment didn't come from the mouth of a person who cares to examine the truth, so why should anyone be bothered to engage with her?

    This is a matter of identity politics. Any human being should be able to tell the difference between actual subjugation and insult. If you don't, you're letting TG and others who enjoy manipulation to control YOU with offhand and obviously ignorant comments. That's really what this is about.

    If you are an iNtuitive, you may also share your opinion on this subject.
    Why are you trying to make rules for people of certain type?

    C'mon PEOPLE, get some self-respect!

    Most are sore losers, but some have been scarred for their being 'different'.

    I think some people use it as an escape mechinism as well. Blame it on the N.

    No, I'd sooner blame it on their own idiocy and ignorance.

    In all seriousness, though, it's downright idiotic to get all huffy and puffy about sensor-bashing jokes (which I still maintain TG's wasn't...is everyone here an idiot or what?), even if they are a reflection of an actual belief, when there is real prejudice rearing it's ugly head all over the forum in more subtle but insidious ways. It's like being that person who balks when someone like Eminem uses the N-word but doesn't bat an eyelid saying patently misinformed and racist shit like "black people are naturally more aggressive."

    Look at this for a fairly recent example. I didn't see anyone getting their panties in a twist over this, and yet it's a thousand times more egregious than any stupid joke. For those of you who don't want to click the link, here are the highlights:

    "In my experience of ISFPs, there is no way they could put that much thought and research into such an incredibly complex world."

    "They're very creative but not to cautious about it. They do not like organising things and doing additional research into complex topics such as symbolism and allegory at the same time as focusing on the work."

    And there are a hundred more where that came from. So in response to the OP, no, I don't give a shit about sensor jokes. I do care, however, about prejudices disguised as factual information going unchecked all the time. It's disheartening.

    Her comment about sensors just shows me that most of her others posts are probably as worth reading as the inside of an empty toolbox.

    Most of the crap on this board is.

    I also blame it on MBTI being used at a level below upper-class college students. I can imagine some kid taking the test, trying to come out XnXX because it's known they are they make up the majority of the AP classes.

    I remember wanting to be an E because they liked to go to parties.
