    I think there's a kind of reactionary piece to this. Intuitive types, many of us, have been made to feel stupid for our weak sensing skills for a good portion of our lives. Suddenly, upon discovering personality theory, we're validated! We have a propensity to see things differently than our sensing societal shoulds have made us feel inferior over.

    This just goes to show that intuitive types are still not all smart enough to see both sides as equal but different, just as we might have felt about others who have judged us as inferior for being less detail-oriented or practical.

    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    What are your thoughts?
    Do you have any to add?
    I have noticed that S-types can be incredibly talented or incredibly annoying. It all depends. Like for example, an intelligent ESFP female can be quite seductive in my opinion.

    Well, type indicates preference, and primary modes of being. Sensors will likely have a more grounded creativity, but also more experiential fodder. They may do less with information, but gather more of it. Type does not imply capability, but method.

No type should sell themselves short, there are exceptional people and not so exceptional people of every type
    I think most scientist types are Intuitive types which involves thinking in the abstract world. I saw a study somewhere showing most most types are mostly NT's followed by NF's. I don't think S types can do what N users can. I read reports that people even had stressed when constantly asked to use their inferior function. However, I wouldn't have said that N types can think of possibilities what S types can do in a million of years. When he said, "One million years," it sounds like one-upmanship. I would had said N types usually have mastery of the abstract world while lacking the detailed world. While S have mastery of the detailed world but lack abstract world.

    It was something really dumb tho, like they had anyone who self identified as intuitive play with clay and then all the sensors play with clay and then they compared. They just seemed to know very little and were speaking in absolutes and stereotypes

    To show that the sensors would make the sky blue, the trees green, ect, and show that the intuitives would make the sky purple. That was pretty much it. I could see where sure that would be an example, but I do not think it was the rule. It was pretty much an I'm an intuitive, and I have to make sure that the sensors are aware of how great I am sort of presentation.

    There are different ways to be creative, I know someone who I guess is an ISFP who can draw amazingly well. She has a a natural perception that I could never have because she is able to capture all of those details and string them together in her art. My art always looked like it was drawn by a fingerless mentally disturbed clown.
