Nightning's comments are intuitively satisfying.
Here's a piggy-back question: Does the N's lack of S actually put us at a disadvantage? I don't think so.
Perhaps that's a misuse of the functions. So let's say there's a difference between a preference for a function, and an intelligence in that function. Sure, they're correlated (we prefer to use functions we're naturally gifted/intelligent in), but what of the order? To be honest, I don't know how they came up with the tertiary and inferior functions... I see the pattern, but why is it that way?
Oy, I digress. Here's an example of the intelligence vs. preference for functions in the art of an NF: My musical training has resulted in a certain sensory intelligence. Somewhere around freshman year of college I became very sensitive to textures and nuances in sights, sounds, and tastes. I can't quite describe what I mean by that... my brain just clicked (and no, there were no drugs involved:1377. Of course, this is NOT my default, and only happens in museums, concerts, etc. So my Se intelligence seems to be more developed than Si (I have no Si... NONE...), despite it being my nth function as far as preferences go.
Conclusion: Intuits can rock the senses.
