    Getting so caught up in your ideas and stuff that you forget to eat/sleep/etc. And then you're like 'Shit....I need to eat/sleep/etc...but I don't have time for that!'

    And the lack of attention span, but that could just be me.

    yeah If I believed N's were intelligent because they were N's and I would be like I'm not N but S doesn't fit either I'm a nobody..... and it be disaterous I'd be force to wander the country side aimlessly for the rest of my life.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I don't care about the moral implications of manipulation (at the moment), but you'd be more successful manipulating people as a Ni-Fe type imho. You're either that, or.. maybe I should tell you that INFJs and ENFJs can one up you on that.

    I think this one is the human condition.. Human beings have an incredible ability to focus and once they become entranced with something, they will ignore all sorts of things.. I am positive S and N play little role in things.. Now maybe N's are more prone to daydreaming and not getting other stuff done or wasting time.

    She knows this already.. Otherwise she'd be getting her way with her ENFJ


    The only thing that sucks about being an N is that people sometimes want explanations..

    I also envy sensors their ease in relating to the larger sensor population. Growing up in a large family full of sensors was so frustrating.

    AGREED. There clearly is a difference between intellect and intelligence.

    For sure. It's gets frustrating to be slightly looked down upon because one is "eccentric" compared to the general public.

    - struggling to stay focused on anything external
    - feeling drained by doing anything that you don't thoroughly enjoy (I'm sure other types can sympathize with this one, but I feel like it's particularly apparent in N doms)
    - you have all these wonderful theories and concepts, but implementing them is SO hard sometimes
    - constantly missing details that end up being the death of you
    - trouble doing anything consistantly (seriously, I have no idea how SJs do this)
    - being constantly bothered by anything that you don't thoroughly understand, especially if it's something you have to do
    - seldom being able to talk to anyone who isn't like to everything you say
    - not being able to be happy living a simple life. I feel like in general the ideal lifestyle of an N type is going to be much more expensive than an S type.
    - needing absolute freedom in all areas of your life in order to be happy
    - being clumsy and uncoordinated
    - people misinterpreting everything you say (even other Ns a lot of the time)
    - having to work much longer hours than you're comfortable with (again, I feel all the types can probably relate to this, but I feel like it has a bigger impact on N doms. correct me if you think I'm wrong)
    I would say anyone who is considered odd compared to the average.... it's not a type thing. If one gets to know anyone long enough, you get to see their quirks (some people are just better at hiding them.... not saying anything about mental illness). It's a miserable life to focus on those things because in the end, you are who you are.

    Being surrounded by SJs who don't share my point of view.

    not much!

    in all honestly being a P bothers me a hell of a lot more than being an N dom.

    though being an N is frustrating in that you are inclined to remove yourself from reality more than is really healthy or desirable. and you know this on some basic level, but it's terribly difficult to fight anyway.

    As a borderline hypothetical eNFJ (really close to N dom), I struggle with relating to most people and the environment but not necessarily because of N but more because part of me couldn't care less about arbitrary social rules and discreetly fight against the status quo. I highly value "authenticity" and the social rules are constantly clashing against it.
