In other words, I reject the notion that Ss place a lesser value on theory as a whole (and I'm glad I caught your post ED because I almost posted this same sentiment with only Anaximander's quote which would have looked like I was talking over you so phew). This has just been my personal observation.
    Hmm, I wonder what other trends we can find in dissecting the population here. Not to post something totally off the intention of this thread, perhaps we can start another, but I'd be curious to explore the population here, see why certain types are attracted to this site, and what, about this site attracts that type of individual. Never thought about this site attracting Sx doms. Interesting!

    *edit: forgot to mention Starry, I don't tend to look all that deep into people's actions on this site so if you accidentally overlook a post of mine for example, I really won't think anything of it, same goes for likes (I feel some members may give likes WAY too much thought :P) I give people the benefit of the doubt by default. At times, too much so! Long story short, you're good

    But we all know that it's true that a lot of sensors are really often mistyped as intuitives. We often talk about the N bias and how online descriptions are bad.
    Months ago I had found a graph showing the percentage of profiles given by an online test. I clearly remember INTP, INFP and INTJ on the top list and SJ on the bottom.
    I'm falling asleep, but I'll look if I can find it again.

    And that's the tricky thing about personality testing. Are those tests attracting more genuine N types or are a ton of sensors "failing" the personality "tests"? I assume both are true to some degree.

    Exactly. That's also why I am reconsidering my type for the tenth time, I want to remove all of the possible biases that led me to a wrong one and understand how my mind truly works.

    there's this graph, taken from a study I'd like to link but I'm on mobile. It clearly shows that the youngsters prefer N over S by a 50% ratio. Is the champion biased? Or are those statistics attendible? Who knows.

    Re young generation, gen Y and people born in the 2000's are also, in the U.S. at least, part of a culture that applauds N 'innovation', 'outside the box' thinking, all of that stuff. Look at any job posting in the past 15 years or so. The hipster era brought about 'N' 'values' (though it began prior).

    But still, a Si user would absorbe those values, look N, but still be Si-driven.
    I should go look about how our personality develops during time.

    Well right, that's kind of what I'm saying. Thus when an S (could be tied to Si or any value system / non-perception-based), particularly a younger one, would answer questions, if they've absorbed 'N' type attributes, or personally value them, as something they believe it's important to identify with/strive for, then they very well may end up with an N result.

    Oh that's probably what I did. I don't think it's a bad thing though. Creativity makes life more fulfilling.

    No, I mean I don't think it's a 'bad' thing, it's just one reason S's might identify with N or test as N.

    That would have made me so uncomfortable though!. Like, I feel like I've done that before...perhaps many times. Say the exact opposite of the post directly above because I missed it leaving that poster to be like wtf? Anyway, I do think what you said is the prevailing understanding.
