Please. The idea that most of the Ns on this forum are actually Ns is nothing but group delusion. The reason there is N bias is because the differences in the quality of descriptions between Ss and Ns...
Are you kidding? Please, tell me you're kidding. This theory is laughable.
People are what they are when it comes to MBTI; cognitive bias and self-evaluation flaws are an inevitable part of one's type, but alas for your argument, this applies to everyone (even those that you believe to be accurately typed). There are obvious differences between N and S; let's establish that first. People prefer to use/excel at using (there is ground for a discrepancy between these two, I concede) one or the other. Now, let's take a look at another preference people have.
You've got people that write with their right hands, you've got others that write with their left, and then you've got a small minority that can do both. Would it be reasonable to say that just because there are many notable/intelligent/skilled/talented people that write with their right hands that most right-handers are simply left-handed people that want to be right-handed? No, not at all. I understand the difference between a left-hander and a right-hander can be more readily detected, but that doesn't change the validity of my analogy. People can't decide preference; as preference is, to a degree, predetermined by genetics and early childhood and then manifests as a human matures, develops interests, and reaches self-awareness.
Besides, the idea of group delusion among intuitives sounds very unlikely. IMO, INFP is one of the most disadvantageous types for social interactions, real-world tasks (e.g. job, everyday chores, fiscal management, etc), maintaining relationships, and self-stability. Basically, INFPs are just barely compatible with life from my perspective. However, I had no problem accepting the conclusion that I was one. Surely I can't speak for everyone, but the pleasantness (or lack thereof) of my typing may cause some cognitive dissonance, but it cannot be changed.
You have no reason to be such a bitter S, quite frankly. Being an N is totally useless unless you get lucky and end up in a career where it can be utilized and thereby admired. If you don't luck out, you end up seeming like that absent-minded, lazy, irresponsible waste to society that everyone wishes would just drop dead. After all, who cares about all our imagination and theories? None of it has anything to do with the real world, right? N ought to stand for 'novel,' because that's usually all it is in our conception of the grand scheme of things.
I would only agree with OP prima facie. Any type can do anything, we are not four letters on a page, mature adults develop underdeveloped functions, etc. Interesting contention nonetheless, and it is a thought I have often pondered before. If I had the choice, I would have chosen to be an ENTJ (or ESTJ).
I've been a duck out of water since birth and feel more comfortable on the outside by now!
actually i grew up in a totally Fe/Ti family, and i usually feel more comfortable around Fe dom/aux than Fi dom/aux. somehow Fi dom/aux feel more threatening, because my Fi and theirs may be in contention. Fe dom/aux are easier to get along with. so... yeah. i feel more comfortable on the outside too.
to back up negativezero: it's true that NPs have to fight rather hard to get our usefulness appreciated. we are often seen as lazy when we don't try to put our ideas in action and rebellious when we do.
though often i feel like the MBTI pegs me as being much less adept and much more dramatic than i am. tbh, i've never really encountered something i don't feel like i could have competence in if i tried. personal difference is important too.
