    I have an ISFJ sister who prefers long, deep, on-1-on, or small group conversations.
    She just got a book about mindfulness and is very into it.

    She seems to not totally grasp my rabbit hole ideas, but she's very interested.
    I would suggest you take this question of yours, this observation, a step or two further. Dig into the “why?”. There are many aspects of spirituality that may draw various types of people to it. They may have particular needs that must be met, through their investigations of spirituality or through the acts of it, whatever those may be. If you simply stop yourself at the level of observation, without seeking out the underlying motives or reasons why people find interest in this or that, I am afraid the results you will obtain will not be all that conclusive. Take art for example. The fine arts, performing it, making it, theorizing on art, non of that is strictly within the realms of sensors or intuitives. Now, there may be particular reasons sensors appreciate art, and there may be differing reasons why intuitives appreciate art, maybe their reasons are the same, maybe you could draw the line between other, more subtle differences between those people such as socioeconomic status, whether or not they had access to or were surrounded by the arts growing up for example. But it’s these sorts of questions, approaching that initial observation you’ve discovered, that I think will garner you more insight into better understanding people as a whole.

    An interesting Tesla quote:

    "My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which “We” obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but i know it exists. – Nikola Tesla"

    So basically, Tesla thinks there's a cloud of knowledge somewhere and our brains have some sort of wi-fi type connection to this database of knowledge. That may become reality in the very near future.

    Was an atheist for a long time, drifted toward Taoism and Confucianism and have now settled on Episcopalian Christianity.

    I consider myself spiritual, yes

    Of course Sensors can't be spiritual. They can't comprehend, let alone, take interest in immaterial matters.... But seriously, Yes we can be spiritual, even the "skeptical" NT's can.
