    I guess i was referring to make believe princesses. the point being, i don't think that imagination plays a large role in what i do. *shrug*

    My extended entire family is S, except for one cousin.

    In my nuclear family, there are three N's and two S's... sort of a rarity.

    Pretty much everywhere I've gone in my area of the world and talked to people, I run across zillions of S types; it's been much harder to find N's.

    One should be aware of type identification in terms of the SFP pattern too -- it can strongly emulate N but isn't N, there are some notable differences. And just because someone can talk art, creative stuff, or some abstracted ideas doesn't mean that they are N.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    to me, being an artist does not = creativity.

    I was brought up on doing still lifes and figure model drawing. I wasn't exactly drawing princesses and dinosaurs. I like things that exist. There is no room for imagination in photorealism.
    I think that is greatly oversimplifying what imagination is.... I can't imagine being a graphic designer & not having any imagination or creativity. I mean, all designs start with an idea.

    I actually wonder, with being in graphic design, if you aren't surrounded by a lot of N's after all. When I was in college studying design, I noticed a disproportionate amount of Ns. You'd except a lot of SPs to be designers, and there were some, but a lot more Ns than you'd normally see in one place.

    Statistically, your experience is still puzzling, so maybe as mentioned, you're confusing those trying sound "deep" with actual Ns. Those people can annoy even Ns

    OP, you are probably surrounded by S's. They are just less spontaneous than you. If you are surrounded by N's, please, give me your location. Also, if a person has to explain something to you multiple times before you understand it, that person is an N. An N is deep almost all the time. If you can discipline yourself for say 20 minutes, you can attempt to steer them into deeper topics. If they enjoy it, they are N's. If they attempt to return to the solid world, they are S's. Finally, a real N can spot N in someone very easily. Get an NF or an NT.

    The graphic designers I know are all INxP types. That's the problem. If you go really anywhere else than home and work you'll find a slough of Ss. More than you would know what to do with. Stay out of coffee shops and go to restaurants, preferably the newer ones. Read the threads on where all us N people hang out and then do the opposite.

    Sports, gyms, nightclubs, anything physical or requiring awareness of your surroundings to do it well, monster truck rallies, roller derbies, car races, construction sites with big machines to be operated, and any building with WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! emanating from it all are pretty likely bets for SPs.

    If you want SJs in your life, look for anyone in a profession that tries to make other people keep the rules or keep the machinery of society turning smoothly (think accounting, insurance agencies, police work, elementary schools, some nurses etc). They will be there busily trying to find out what they are expected to do and how everyone around them ranks in relationship to them. (I mean no disrespect. I have several very near and dear SJs)

    I understand your Lord of the Ringsy/D and D/medieval fair N typing, but there are exceptions to that trend. I don't understand what people like about that stuff and I am an INFJ. You might also be ignoring some NT traits in your understanding of the N people, hence jenocyde's comments. They want to make sure it's all perfectly accurate.

    Where did you find your SO?

    Wow, no wonder you find so many N's; you make to S's I know seem philisophical.
