    Default rarity in NFs?

    I recently met with my old advanced placement english class for a little reuinion

    I was never very close with too many of them, but we started discussing MBTI

    here is the break down

    NFS: me: eNFP. and one EnFJ

    NTS: 1 intp, 2 intjs, 2 entps, 2 entjs

    SJs: 3 istjs

    SPs: 1 isfp, 1 esfp


    now this was the most creative/intellectual class in my high school and there were TWO NFs

    I am also only aware of ONE other NF in my entire grade (about 100 people) Now obviously its impossible to know the type of all 100, but I am quite sure if there were many at least one or two would have stood out.

    going to a liberal arts college, I've obviously met many NFs

    but my high school was a lot of very, VERY pronounced Ss.... only in AP classes could you find the NTs, and they outnumbered my type by far.

    is this normal? I thought every 1 in 8 people was an NF?

    if this is true, my high school was a very, very weird place.

    Every place you go always has an odd result when you try to MBTI everyone. Personally, I don't think I've found all that many NFs out there in the world. They seem to love the internet though

    ahaha this is true...


    its so weird, I always felt so disconnected from people in my high school

    My Ne and Fi were a bit out of control so I got VERY quiet for a couple years

    or I thought so, but I was told I was never actually very shy. I felt shy though.

    Isn't just about everyone sort of shy during highschool though? Excluding the few (or many?) attention seekers of course...

    I am an attention seeker at least to a degree

    but yes, a lot of people flourish after those mediocre 4 years

    but a lot of my quietness stemmed from my N being almost 100% and me not feeling like I fit in.... example...

    person one: this lettuce in my salad is so green.
    me: Like a forest
    person two: No, like really green lettuce.


    i dont know, silly example, but it would be things like that or...

    me: He's perfect
    person one: No one is perfect.
    Me: he is perfect in his imperfection.
    person two: thats a cliche
    person one: and it still makes no sense.
    person three: does he even LIKE you?
    me: how should I know?

    people were S-ish and bitchy about it lol

    so I just decided everyone was brainwashed, shallow and ugly and found nice NTs to hang out with

    one more example... this is kinda fun now...

    me: I love the garden outside our school, its beautiful but so misleading.
    person one: huh?
    me: Its false advertising, because its so pretty and then you come inside and this place is like a prison, but the garden gives off this impression of-
    person one: yeah, sure.
    person two: dont know why we even have a garden when we need a new soccer field.
    person one: agreed. and a bigger track.
    me: I hate sports
    entire lunch table: *staring confused*

    I've noticed this N/S divide a bit, talking to sensors is tough. When you talk naturally, it seems to just alienate you. It's not 'normal'. But there's no point worrying about it, this divide will only make you stronger

    It's easy to say that they are shallow and ugly, but really they're just human btw.

    oh i was just kidding, they contribute something to society, something I am far to intuitive to do, I just think theyre close minded



    but talking to sensors is a skill I've developed quite easily. I make new friends with any type, usually SPs within seconds and then they'll tell me their life story and tell everyone we're new best friends

    I think I just had to grow up and develop my ENFP charm a bit lol

    but even so, I have to censor my thoughts bc my instinct is always to spew Ne to death in any situation.

    I met a random guy in the hallway at a party and told him he looked like a Greek God
    his reply: "Thats sweet, cutie, but just saying I was hot would have worked just fine"

    and then I felt very silly

    I know it feels stifling and unfair sometimes, but, well, what can you do about it?

    I once thought that I'd just isolate myself from all sensors and just build a group of super intuitives and all would be good! And I kind of did now that I think about it.

    Also, I find that introverted sensors are more willing to delve in the intuitive conversations, within a certain limit anyway. It's probably why you find so many ISTJs in your classes.

    He thought; I sure hope she's not Atropos.
