    Objective? All right, it may be harsh then.ㅋㅋㅋ Intuitives are on the average consifered smarter because they make up 25 percent of the population, and most politicians and famous scientists like einstein are all Ns! So now you can see why Ns are supposingly smarter, of course there are smart Ss too but fewer. As for connections, because Ns see the big picture they find discrepancies and connections easier, if u search on google intp memes, or nt memes, u will see them pictured as an explosive mind or complex mind.

    Don't forget to include the small percentage of the population born with green eyes. On average, smarter than the brown-eyed population. (Especially when eating oatmeal in the morning.)

    I mean...I just don't believe in "smarter" and "dumber" types. It breaks my heart to see all these negative stereotypes. My ESFJ mom is one of the most intelligent and inventive people I know. She graduated with honors as a math major. I love her to death, and ultimately I see her as a wonderful person, not a type.

    Type theory is not an end. It's not a ceiling that you hit in terms of self-discovery. It's not, "I'm an INFP, that's it, that's all there is to me." The whole point of typology is the starting point. It's a trampoline that can bounce you into a world of even more trampolines. And more. And more. There's no limit to us as humans. The deeper we probe, the more we discover.

    And though I strongly disagree with these smart/dumb stereotypes, I have to say--why does it really matter? Let's use type to better understand ourselves, better understand others, and have fun exploring the theory and acquiring awesome knowledge. Please, let's work to stop these hurtful assumptions/biases/generalizations.

    I got so bored of the "stupid S" stereotype that I'd rather pretend to be le retard than try to explain to some people that not all sensors are stupid

    When someone tells me that I seem too intelligent for a sensor, I feel like replying with a simple "fuck you".

    Why are they perpetuated?
    What are the sources of this nonsense?
    Why is any form of prejudice perpetuated? Usually because it makes the holder feel better about themselves by pounding someone else into the ground.

    I think Myers of MBTI fame had an inadvertent hand in creating them. Her MBTI insists on describing everyone in the best possible light. Reading some of the descriptions, you'd wonder where all the bitches and bastards are supposed to fit into cosy little world. The people reading them know full well that the world contains a significant number of assholes, so they use their half formed understanding of a half baked theory to try and fill in the gaps... and you've seen the results for yourself.
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    Default the 'S'tupid stereotype

    Every single type is equally as intelligent and useful as all the others. This just depends on what their intelligence is categorized and measured by. For instance, an INTP may not have adequate social skills (which can be categorized as one form of intelligence), however, they may be an undoubtably genius when it comes to math ( which could also be another form of intelligence), while the ESFP may be a social butterfly but is terrible at math (and I'm just creating a scenario, I don't mean to stereotype either of these)

    There's stereotypes for almost anything these days. It's the people who buy into them regardless of type that might be not using their brain quite as much as they could be.

    You're funny. Here's a bell curve of IQ.

    Roughly ~16% of people fall under an 85 IQ. Your argument is funny, but null and void. Percentage =/= intelligence. Thanks for the lulz.
