It seems a natural consequence that someone who thinks totally differently, who processes information and looks at the world in a totally alien fashion and is naturally strongly attuned to the deeper aspects of life, would end up being ostracized out of envy or perceived danger.

    But how does someone who's just like everyone else fall into the delusion that they're a misfit?




    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.
    Exactly...i initially typed as N. Its actually a mental process that helped me realize we go about things backwards. Nothing at all to do with the world itself. I actually get along very easy with both S and N types. As well as struggle with both S and N types.

    I think the biggest issue between S and N is correlation...not reality.

    Any similar experience? Do you as a Rationalist find yourself trapped in the invisible web of Sensors? Fuck Locke, I wanna Descartes!

    Why rationalists are a minority?

    And then, they (the majority of the populations) ask thyself why he is so tough-skinned, aloof and independent? Why is he must go against the stream?
    This is just my guess, as I am definitely not a strong sensor comparing to my, in comparison only, overpowering intuitive function. Sensors are more into the world and attached to the physical world. As a world that is physical, it means it is advantageous for sensors because the input is direct. So there isn't really a problem for them to just live in the present, inside a visible place, and enjoy life. Since they probably not as interested in mbti, we don't see them here.

    However it is not true in this world. The language and the way of expression is already sensor biased, unless you are talking about spirituality or religion. It doesn't matter so much. Sensor catering articles are just everywhere. Like my sensor dominated parents, it is entirely impossible to communixate with them without using and understanding their language. They won't get it. Full stop.

    Sensors are not like 80% of the population...I would say its fairly balanced.

    Anyone can feel left out, like they don't fit in, alienated etc for various reasons. I don't think its so much a question of being an NT as it is being young and not knowing where you fit in yet like @entropie said.

    You probably just need to find more people who share your values in life. Stop looking at types, and look at people. I'm sure there is a place where you fit in when it comes to society. And I'm not talking about online groups...I mean in real life.

    Your OP is a great example of a victim mentality.

    When problem solving they tend to want details when i want conceptual. When they tend to move towards conceptual i tend to move towards detail. This is working together solving or analyzing same problem. Almost like we start different, meet in the middle, then head off different directions to meet again in the middle. The S vs N just dictates where we both go first, not whether we just "S" or just "N". I hate words sensor and intuitive due to the connotations given to the words itself outside of MBTI being corrolated with actual S vs N within MBTI.

    Are we majority S in this world? I thought that was based mostly on Myers' and Briggs' own assumption/conclusion.

    If it is a majority, I'd guess roughly 60-70% at the most.

    Yeah, I don't put much stock at all really in any stats -- notably because said stats are from people taking tests, and we already know (this thread is case in point) that many S's have tested as N before realizing preference is S.

    I'd agree it's not nearly as high as 80% S.

    Too, some N's (and S's) assume N = intelligent, and things like that used to be much more prevalent on the internet but it's not as much the case anymore, thank goodness. There will be a lot of stupid N's out there as well (who are probably typed by smart N's as S - because said less intelligent N's are making the wrong connections or aren't relatable to the more intelligent N) -- which leads to the other common thing which is if one is intelligent or 'able to make connections' or has a high IQ or is a misunderstood misfit, , those characteristics alone mean they are N. Not true.

    fyi you are referring to a small subset of Sensors.

    Also what you describe could have strong ties to Te/Fe.
