    I have zero awareness of my surroundings plus terrible eye - hand coordination despite doing ballet for years (some of it professionally).

    Broke my big toe the other day because I banged it on the edge of my bed - tbh my eyesight is also to blame.

    Most of the times it's not a big deal, I mean the natural world is great, but I'm fine not noticing my floors need vacuuming or that my workplace is a dreary gray place with a couple of dying plants in one corner. My mind is vastly more interesting.

    I wasn't saying all, but I've seen a number of threads with intuitives with dismissive attitudes towards sensors and the same individuals insisting they have strengths associated with sensors. It's not about whether my type is liked. It's this: Intuition is intuition AND sensing but sensors are dumbasses attitudes I dislike. A lot of my friends are sensors to start with. And the size of the ego on people taking this position turns me off.

    There is a sort of 'war' between sensors and intuitives in this forum but it's mostly in jest.

    Most of my friends are sensors and I've met plently of stupid NTs.

    I lose my glasses, bus card and hair comb at least once a day each. It's gotten so bad, I've taken to attaching lanyards to them, just to make them more visible. Except for my glasses, which continue to remain elusive. My ISFP husband is the official 'finder' of all my things.

    Is this whole ''Intutitives are slow on their feet, bump into things'' really a thing?

    I mean sensing and intuition are just the way we process information. Which yes, could translate in intuitives being less interested in purely physsical experiences. Not sure it means they have a harder time dodging in front of a fast car or noticing all the colors a fireworks display shows or stuff like that :/

    In general, my awareness is painfully higher than that of the majority of people I meet. So many phlegmatic tunnel visioned human shaped sloths everywhere, field of view <15 degrees, 0,5 s input lag, selective and next to no hearing. To get their attention I have to pretty much yell at them (Ive heard people say I speak too quietly but shit) or hack into their processing center through the ancestral backdoor by setting off that Lizard Brain™ by touching or poking them. This is a highly irritating trait.

    When driving I sometimes realize Ive passed a speed limit sign and I didnt see what it was but thats hardly important as there is nearly no police around and I follow the law much more that a lot more drivers. About driving, I think its extremely important to dissociate from that animalistic drive to go faster and to pay attention to the dynamics of traffic. If the light up ahead is red then it is fuckin stupid to accelerate and then brake hard like an idiot, extremely basic things like this that a good 50% blatantly do not see.

    Want some more redpilling about traffic? If everyone starts moving exactly at the same time from behind a light, doesnt matter if its 5 cars or a line of 100 m, then a lot more cars can cross compared to that stupid wave of clutch burning moving along the line. This never happens though because at best 1% have thought of this so it never works.

    Yeah, I think it's a thing... I mean, sensory processing is a really complex process in your brain. It doesn't just happen automatically like a camera recording... So since it's so complex, it makes sense that someone could be bad at it.

    One example would be, I'm really bad at processing auditory directions. If somebody is telling me how to do something with a bunch of different steps, or showing me how it works, my brain goes foggy and the world seems really far away. I feel like I'm not fully present. And I get a headache because I'm trying so hard to process what's going on.

    Also at work I'm supposed to run these machines and I have to hit different buttons and different times and so on. I sometimes get so flustutered doing this..I can't find the right button, like literally it'll be right there in front of my eyes and I can't find it.
    It happens during time pressure/ when someone is watching me and I'm nervous.

    I don't know if this has anything to do with being an Intuitive, but it could.

    I don't think intuitives are necessarily uncoordinated. But there is a consistent tone to this place that sensors are morons who can't see the big picture or have an intellectual conversation with and you might catch dumbass kooties if you date them. It doesn't seem so bad when this bullshit, literal, misinterpretation of MBTI is paired with the assumption that intuitives are uncoordinated. But paired with full on superiority complexes is full on MBTI bingo.

    I have dyslexia. LD Resources » Blog Archive » Dyslexia and Autism: Differing Ends of Brain Connector Spectrum For the record, dyslexics favor long connectors indicating an easier time with big picture and abstract thinking. ASD favor short connectors indicating an easier time with details. AD(H)D and dyslexia correlate with XSXP. This presumption that sensors aren't abstract/big picture thinkers strikes me as closed minded. Different people communicate differently and respond to situations differently.

    I communicate my ideas differently than my intuitive parents. They get disappointed because they think their point went over my head. I understood their point, I just don't use the same language to communicate my thoughts. I prefer to use the concrete world to get my point across with meaning in the subtext. My experience is most SP's know when I'm switching between when I'm being literal and when my words have subtext.

    "I need you to help me with my three pointer." Can be: "I need your help with my three pointer." or it could mean: "I don't want to be alone right now." I can count on my SP friends to know the difference and not make me say it out loud because that would be awkward. If it didn't make me so uncomfortable, I'd give a more meaningful example but this is making me squirm and that's all I can squeeze out.
