    Default How good is your sensing?

    I spoke to someone who is supposedly an INTJ. He told me he is oblivious to details he is always in his head. My understanding from it is for example "if I hand you a piece of paper and there is a smiley face sticker on it. You wouldn't notice it?" I must say when I was first told this I was surprised. Maybe his Intuition was so strong his sensing was garbage? Are NT's or maybe N's as a whole that oblivious to details? If that is the case then I seriously need to consider that I might be a Sensor.

    How do you notice details?

    Yes, it is an "N" issue. We like to call them our "sensotard moments". I run into walls and walk right by people that I know without even seeing them sometimes. Check out this thread for more "sensotard moments" caught on tape:

    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    Not all the time but I occasionally trip over toys in my living and often forget where I place my pencil while writing. When I leave somewhere I do forget something important to bring. I forgot my car keys were still in the door every single day this past week. But nothing like walking into walls. Thanks for the posting a link to that thread.

    I wouldn't call being clumsy or absent-minded a total N trait. I am a definite sensor and I am very clumsy, absent-minded, and forgetful.

    My Se is excellent, my Si not so much... and I routinely trip over things and such because I'm staring in fascination at something else that I intend to lay my hands on or eat

    I can be clumsy at times, but I think it's the ISTPs ability to focus too much on a particular thing and not see what's around him.

    I am fairly sure I'm an SP but I'm quite clumsy, too (or does that disqualify me? lol). The other day I almost tripped over a dog hahaha. Not my fault they are so short. I walk into door frames at least once a day. My Si really sucks, though...I can't relate at all to the "in head" task prioritization some SJs talk about. Even with a simple and regular task like making a familar food I will have difficulty sorting out the order of tasks within the larger task... actually is that weak Si or Je?

    If you hand me a piece of paper with a smiley sticker and nothing else on it, I will notice the sticker. When I walk across a room, I pay attention because I don't want to walk into walls. I generally have some control over when I zone out and get stuck in my head.
