For instance...I've got this ESFP bass player in one of my bands who basically watches out for everybody (me, INTJ drummer and ISFJ guitarist) when we go to clubs to play and such, because he's really aware of what's going on around him and I know that I'm not so I trust him when he warns me of something...often it'll be pointing out people's body language and other subtle physical cues that I didn't notice. He often helps double check my appearance before going on stage, so I don't look like a dumbass. He comes in handy all the time with setting up stage gear and any difficulties that come up with engineering the physical space of the stage and where each cable should run and so on. I really don't notice that shit, so I trust someone who does. I've learned to trust that he's right on this a lot more often than I am.
Your argument at this point reduces to, "Come on, that connection is too abstract to really be there!", which may seem true from your perspective, but to N-heavy types, especially Ne, these connections are actually visible and often legitimate.
I know that's lame and all, but it's the truth. I can see an intuitive line of reasoning to imply why thinkers might potentially nitpick spelling more than feelers, but here's that classic generalization interpretation mistake again...
She doesn't actually mean that a majority of Thinkers behave this way; only that Thinkers behave this way more often relative to Feelers. Again, we're not actually saying how many specific entities with the property Thinking are behaving this way; we're just comparing the relative frequencies of behaviors between arbitrarily designated groups.
When that ESFP starts making fun of me too much for missing "obvious" shit in my physical surroundings, I remind him that for every silly spacy mistake I make by missing a Sensory thing, there's an iNtuitive thing you're missing that I'm just not telling you about. :L)
