We all know that S prefers to gather information with the five senses (empirical), but the way it's worded with N, with gathering information from "possibilities and meanings." Would this be something like understanding through discussion or reading since neither of those involves direct experience?
Some sources, though, say that E prefers experiential knowledge, while I prefers conceptual knowledge, but to me, that seems to make more sense when in the S and N dichotomies, since experience is concrete, while concepts (which are attained through reading since it deals with symbols and interpreting of meaning) are abstract and not directly perceived by the senses. Conceptual knowledge is also big picture oriented.
Can someone help me out here?
