And since we all have all the same functions (though in varying strengths), then I think real wisdom comes from using the mental function most appropriate to the needs of a given situation and NOT just what you're most comfortable with. Sometimes being an N totally sucks.
Alright. That's settled now. No elitism here...
If I say that sometimes I feel like I'm in the minority, it's not because I'm an elitist, it's because...
<Insert drum roll here.>
I'M IN THE MINORITY...
I've read differing statistics, but the one that sticks out is that NFs are @ 13% of the population. Whatever the exact number, they are not the norm. And sometimes I feel like I'm a freak living in a Sensor world.
So what if a little part of me feels like I'm part of a secret club of N-ness? And so what if I make a glib comment about how NFs need to unite against all those Sensors. That comment was intended to be satirical and witty.
What I said is NOT the same as me saying that I'm better than Ss. It's just recognizing that when Ns seek each other out, it can be very affirming and validating.
Do you know how many years I spent as a girl and later a young woman feeling soooo different from everyone around me? Only later did I come to understand this was my dominant Ne making me feel different. How wonderful for me to learn that there wasn't anything "wrong" with me, and even better, that there were literally millions of people in the world that struggled with the same issues.
So it is possible to affirm who I am, seek validation from others like me, and think no less of Sensors in the process.
I don't know how we started going down this path, but I suggest that everyone posting to this thread right now stop and regroup. We are WAY WAY WAY off topic.
I would love to see some more lists from NF females. I have so enjoyed reading them.
