    Default The Grand Scheme

    Most threads here are started by N's inquiring about S types. There doesn't appear to be too many S types here. I think we need to put all of our intuitive minds together and concoct a plan to get more S types coming here. Anybody got any ideas to get us started?

    I've been trying to get my ESFJ sister to come post here but she's always busy with social stuff and things. I imagine that's emblematic of why it seems not many Ss come here-- they're engaged in the 3-D world and have less tolerance for abstractions. It seems like the Ss we do get are more N-friendly, if that makes sense. I'm thinking of many of the Ss I know and most of them would consider an internet forum a waste of time. They could be gardening/entertaining/tinkering/playing/relationship-building!

    I think you're right.

    I ask people to come. Sometimes they do. Mostly they just stop communicating with me.

    Maybe we need a popular non-typology section that S's will be interested in. Then we can label them and spy on them while they're busy talking about S type stuff.

    At first I was thinking we could give out candy or free t-shirts for signing up.

    Perhaps someone should ask some of the Sensors what we can do?

    NOT IT!

    But you guys don't like fluffiness... otherwise I'd suggest you start forums that discuss gardening/entertaining/tinkering/playing/relationship-building for your spying pleasure. Maybe if you be nice, friendly, and out-going???

    Who said threads about gardening/entertaining/tinkering/playing/relationship-building would be fluffy? I assume posts about gardening would consist of more than "lol" or "hahaha" or "omg."

    Furthermore, do we not have an entire subforum called "The Fluff Zone?" That doesn't sound like a forum that is against fluffy posts as a principle.

    But anyway, that's a really good idea. Maybe we should add some channels.

    It's more that they often just don't see the point in the internet. It just isn't tangible enough for your typical S to see the point. The whole internet is like that, in fact, to many.

    I don't think there is a solution.. short of feeding the masses desire to discuss stuff that we don't currently, that is populist enough to bring them in. Celeb news, porn, or sport, probably.

    It's true that our channels are slanted in an N direction. I think that'd be a good place to start. But we may never attract a large S base, for the simple fact that MBTI is itself an abstraction and there will probably be many Ss who simply aren't interested. If they're going to chat online it'll be on a forum that is more focused on their real-life interests.
