    iNtuitive and Sensing

    Back in December of 2008, Silhouetree made a useful post:
    https://personalitycafe.com/personali...ssessment.html


    The following is the topic of my concern:

    Sensing Characteristics
    * Concrete
    * Realistic
    * Lives in the present
    * Aware of surroundings
    * Notices details
    * Practical
    * Goes by senses
    * Factual


    Intuitive Characteristics
    * Future-focused
    * Sees possibilities
    * Inventive
    * Imaginitive
    * Deep
    * Abstract
    * Idealistic
    * Complicated
    * Theoretical


    I am an iNtuitive, and consider myself all nine of the simplified criteria. However, I also consider myself the following from the Sensing category: Realistic, Notices Details, Practical, and Factual.
    ***
    Consider the following:


    Are iNtiutives advanced Sensors? Or am I completely off base?
    Thoughts please.

    INFP - The Idealists


    I've often wondered the same thing - if an apparent lack of awareness is actually hyper-awareness of certain details that evade most sensors.

    I know the first thing I do when I enter a new environment is absorb my surroundings, but my mind is taking in so much information, it's hard to see small things that I deem insignificant.

    I see what you did there.. By chance, is intuition being misinterpreted here? It may just be a case that sensors (as described) focus on the constant flow of information from the senses, whilst the intuitive abstracts that information to see how it can apply to the contexts, situations and concepts that can be hypothesized.

    Of course we intuitives can make all the assumptions of the effectiveness of intuition, but is it not a slight bias that we believe intuition is better. Likewise, sensors could easily see benefits in their traits as better than the intuitive traits. It is worth a mention.

    I lose things while they are in front of me.
    So no my sensing abilities are off. I also can't smell as well as others.
    If I am stressed out or menstruating I do get more of an S.
    But I am a bit absent minded too especially when there's a hottie around

    Once, my entire department was each given a piece of paper, and assigned to design an efficient workstation (I've since left the company).
    Some crap had hit the fan recently, and I didn't feel that my superiors were entitled to any creativity I may impart. So, instead of arranging processes and machines in a logical order, I drew everything in SOME order and actually drew each little thing to make it look like I had done something, e.g. paper slots, knobs, keypads, little nuances.

    Afterwards, I was told I had a great attention to detail. If I were completing the assignment to the fullest of my N potential, there would only be a box that said, "printer."

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I loose things all the time, because I'm not "there" when I set them down. I'm in my head somewhere.

    I've heard that if you loose something and you're xNxJ, you're screwed. Ask an xSxP

    Maybe Sensors are just advanced iNtuitives. Who's to say that one is truly more advanced than the other?

    p.s. to Neph:

    Sometimes I wonder if intuitive people are sensing people that crossed over into Formal Operational Thought.

    Quite what I was saying.. There is no specific superiority in either trait type.

    Yeah I have to agree. I'm always in my head repeating past events. Or thinking of what I could of done to make it better.
    I hate it when I look for my notes and they're in my pocket! That's the worst one!

    There are a lot more of you. So... there is a evolutionary benefit.
