I've noticed a lot of intjs do this especially in mathematics/philosophy (ie thinking that the world IS math for example), I think NFs do it to some extent as well (interpreting a person as symbolic of a larger pattern, etc), but usually they're more receptive to information that allows for alternate explanations of the phenomena they're describing. You can see it in religious types as well (the Word was god, etc). What types do you think are most prone to this way of thinking and why? I don't think it is simply a matter of ignorance, because as I mentioned before some seem much more receptive to information that allows the experience to be reinterpreted in new ways that allow for a synthesis of the prior experience with other simultaneously occurring new experience.
