    Typical intuitor. Always trying to extrapolate and make everything be about something else. :rolli:

    As a recently discovered intuitive I think I can provide some insight. Seeing how much I wasn't like the sensors allowed me to come to this conclusion.

    Sensors usually communicate differently, being an introverted intuitive type I usually only talk when the subject at hand becomes "abstract" I'll try to expand on this...

    Sensors seem more than content with just "every day" chatter such as details of current events or details of their lives or lives of people they know

    Such things usually make me become very detached from the conversation and go into an almost day dream state... take no offense by this... I don't mind really

    Of course the communication is different. That's the good thing about this site and talking to different people. We can work on it.

    It is easier to talk to people about everyday stuff, but that gets boring. I would rather have more indepth/intellectual conversations and question why you came to the conclusions that you have. I am actually keeping you on your toes IRL. I am not looking for flaws but rather the foundations.

    This may piss some people off, but hey, thats who i am. I don't claim to be smart and a know-it-all. I do enjoy hearing information i previously was unaware of.

I often feel...I'm not taken to all too well. Like my approaches are wild and misleading. My friends and neutral family are a bunch of Ns. I only just noticed. So are sensing people sometimes seen as irrational to intuits? I'm more interested than worried.
    I've met people who are unnecessary in their decisions, but I've also met those who are very, very efficient, proficient, and whatnot - for both iNtuitives and Sensors. I guess it really depends on the person. I've gotten along well with a few people who primarily uses Sensing functions. There were times when there's a conflict of priorities, but eh... *shrugs* Usually got past that with not too much issue. I try to look at people as themselves when I'm interacting with them, rather than as ESFJ's, ESTP's, or ENTP's. It kind of helps me maintain perspective and allows me to adapt more easily to the situation.

    It sure didn't seem that way when we had conversations on Vent. You were one of the few people I felt I could have a normal conversation with.

    Yeah, I've been kinda iffy about your newly-discovered type, Unique. I think I like you better as an ISTP.

There's little room to jump around from thought to thought; it does sometimes feel suffocating.
    Man, I can't believe I used to think I was intuitive because of some stupid test. I've always had to have things spelled out for me. My mom always complained that she had to draw a picture for me, and she's an ESFJ!

    Thank you!!!

    Can you give me an example? I'm curious now

    You shouldn't feel like that. It's worth something, and I think a good many of us realize that, we just often don't personally know what to do with it.

I admire how deeply they are in touch and in sync with their world. I envy their ability to feel and experience things so deeply and intimately without over-analyzing it. Sometimes I'm too busy thinking about how I should react instead of just reacting or I'm too busy making something about something else rather than just taking it as it is. I struggle to let go and just 'be' sometimes, which can, paradoxically, lead to a more shallow experience of life. I have the sense, for example, that I could never feel the awe and wonder my ISFP friend feels at the sight of a beautiful bird or a spectacular sunset.
    Yeah, totally. I was amazed and kind of put off when walking with my friend once and telling him how entranced I was by how beautiful of a day it was. I was spellbound, but he said, "I guess. I prefer cloudy weather." My face went: Only later did I find out he was intuitive, specifically ENTP. Regardless if you prefer cloudy weather, I don't see how you couldn't be in love with the magic of such a wondrous amazing view!!!

    I'll just have to post some since this thread is sorely missing them:

    With some sensors, I get this. Kinda like,"OK, but what's the point???"

    I admire a lot of things about sensing, like the whole groundedness thing, and just seeing things as they are and not feeling the need to extrapolate or project the now into the future. I often wish I could be as present.

    To both of these: it's not that I don't see any use for these thoughts ever, it's just that I often don't see a use for them right now. Like when Meseri is trying to talk about society and their values, etc when we're in the middle of working. Sure, I tell anecdotes and jokes (and so does he) while we're trying to work, but meh. That makes more sense to me. If you want to have a philosophical conversation, let's sit down at Starbucks somewhere and then end it with talking about how all of that reasoning can be applied to some kind of action we can take part in.

    Yes, I think there's a place for every kind of theory and philosophy, but not just at any time and place. I'd rather wait till they're more or less relevant to what's going on. I think it makes much more sense that way, don't you?

    nah...i don't...what i'm talking about with someone never has to have anything to do with what we're doing at that moment and usually doesn't...

    I would have thought it would be the other way around. Intuits are more at home in the abstract and imaginary and can lose sight of the practical and applied. By the definitions of the system, I would suspect the N to have more potential for irrationality or at least thinking in terms of systems that don't map well to reality.

    If I'm hanging out with a bunch of N types, we can kick up a conversation about anything(philosophical/theoretical/and things completely nonsensical) day and night, no matter where we are. I love that we can do that together, but I don't want to necessarily talk about theoretical things all the time. I almost equally want to be out doing things; but, I am almost always game for some intellectual sparing as well. I don't need a concrete reason.

    If I'm with strong S types, specifically SP types, then my desire to discuss things becomes a desire to do things. I get all inspired and I become better able to translate my thoughts into actions. On of my S friends and I started a business together in college. It worked because we both have something equally awesome to offer, and knew how to make it work. Either preference is fine with me, and satisfy two completely different needs: the need to do, and the need to understand and consider.

    My S friends come to me when they've gotten themselves into something ridiculous as a result of their impulsive behavior and they need help(almost always ESP).
    I go to them when I want to party, go climb a mountain, or take a random and impulsive trip to somewhere with little to no money. It's love baby.
