most people, both S and N, are a lot closer to the center line that they get credit for being... bell curves and all of that. the idea that there is some sort of stark dichotomy between sensing and intuition is a myth propagated by websites that just skim the surface as opposed to looking at things a bit more closely... it's sliding scales and we're all shades of gray.
attitude with which one takes things makes the biggest difference... any of the MBTI dichotomies can make a person feel alien if they sit and focus on the differences (i.e. being a woman with a traditionally "masculine" personality type) which means that if you want to slip effortlessly through society the easiest thing to do is to focus on the similarities instead

But how does someone who's just like everyone else fall into the delusion that they're a misfit?
Sorry for ranting, but sensor bias is a big pet peeve of mine and is one of the main reasons why I didn't want to come out as a sensor in the first place, because I was afraid people would see me as a simple-minded zombie that just goes about my day and doesn't care about anything with deep thought. Hopefully you can interact with some of us on here and your mind can change.
Well, you are, by default. Several people here have already pointed that out.
Then again, I mistyped as an N for a couple of years for fear of confronting the truth.ISFP/ESI

You can learn how to adapt, but you will always be a minority. All sensor who I know have a jobs, they listen and obey, they like hierarchy.
There is always one sensor who is at charge.
I don't hate Sensors, I do like manny of them, but sometimes, they are annoying.
I came to this forum to learn some Sensors stuff. And to find fellow NTs and share experiences.

Well you're in a trap:
If you stay here. You'll just end up having to respect everybody.
If you go to those fb purist groups. Trust me, those sensor mistypes wear intuitive hoods. Or intuitors.
Pick your poison. A lot of people seem to take others by face value. So be it.
I much prefer this site, and that's healthy thinking to accept those of who they are. You know I love self-aware sensors. And I dislike non self-aware sensors who disguise themselves as intuitives. But that's my individual problem it seems.
Can't have everything I suppose.obviously you're going to get nothing from reading this
