I can see why discussing "the N factor" could be helpful, and am not trying to suggest that anybody stop discussing it. I was just thinking that plenty of S's can still enjoy "N-like" conversations, and it might be sad to kind of look past them in search of N's. At least in my case, I'd have missed out on the 3 most valuable friendships in my life. The three people who most "get" my quirkiness and randomness are all SP's. And I actually recently discovered an SJ who is more refreshing to talk to/hang with than ANY of my N friends in real life! Totally caught me by surprise. (And I like talking about coupons. I'm totally getting thrown out of tthe N club...) Just trying to throw my opinion in the mix, since I think a good connection and that relief of "you understand me!" often depends on an individual as much as any letter in their particular type.
