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.
