A couple of thousand intuitives versus a few hundred sensors, viewed with an understanding that 75% of the world is comprised of sensors, cannot be accurate..

    I'm very stereotypically ISTP in my line of work...and people are always SHOCKED to find out I have a master's degree in Latin and philosophy.

    One thing I have discovered is that Europeans accept, if not expect, that a person pursue a variety of interests and activities. Americans find that upsetting and demand a singular focus...you can't be an athlete and a scholar...an artist and a successful business person...a poet and a car mechanic...or all of them combined.

    We Americans are in some ways the most conventional and rigid of peoples.

    It doesn't really bother me at all. I just take it as trash talk and shrug it off as the rantings of infantile minds. I mean, it is obvious that people who do that are using type to bolster their fragile egos. How sad is that? That a person needs type to make themselves feel special. That is simply pathetic.

    The popular culture threads don't bother me. Most people can't even type themselves so how can they be so sure of someone they have never met. The truth is they aren't and that is why they set up shop in a small hole and throw stones at people.

    At the end of the day they are just pissing into the wind.

    Yes, some people such as Sarah and SolitaryPenguin have "left" the forum over frustration with this very thing. Personally, i have gotten pissed at certain individuals here for their behavior, but not because of stereotyping SPs really. I mean, some of what is said about SPs here is true. People sometimes take things to extremes, but often they are just joking.

    I guess I need to do a better job of updating the thread in my signature. Part of why I continued to remember to participate in this forum was I wanted to do some education of people about SPs, because there were so few here and the Ns seem to not understand us. But because I'm a lazy SP I have slacked off and not updated it lately. Maybe if I write more and it's stickied or something then people will at least have one source for some ways to cure some ignorance about us. Feel free to contribute to that thread too!

    Everything is exaggerated here. The N types even do it to themselves. I'm thinking so much I never notice my surroundings and stuff like that. Reminds me of Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman...'It's dark in here!'

    Some of the stuff directed at sensors is actually true but exaggerated. And some of the other stuff is way off. It's a typology forum, stereotypes are part of the game.

    You remind me of Sarah. And not just because of this. Hopefully we can sort it out before you vanish into thin air..

    Sometimes, the forum gets to be a bit too toxic. I don't like the negativity and the stereotyping. It makes me wonder what the purpose of the forum is. If the purpose of the forum is for all different types to interact and learn about and better understand our differences and similarities, then the atmosphere needs to change to reflect that. I can hardly believe that insult and negativity is the purpose of the forum.

    You, sir, rule. I have always considered myself a bit of a renaissance woman as well. One day I'll be re-tiling my bathroom, the next I'll be reading Dante's Divine Comedy or teaching myself a new piece on the piano.

    I have no singular focus.

    I love all of these responses... they are very insightful and wise.
