    Nope. Probably said by some depressed teenager who is trying to make himself* seem like he is part of a "superior group" and that's why "no one understands him".

    *yes, the person who said that could be a she too...just didn't feel like putting the /(female pronoun).

    Basically, they're saying that iNtuitives are sensors with an extra layer. Total bullshit.

    Everyone uses both Sensing and Intuition. One is just more cognitively repressed than the other.

    Sounds like a bias.

    "Intuitives are so special that they can be both sensors and intuitives! Sensors lack the depth and understanding to cultivate intuition. We don't like them and we want them out of our exclusive club. Go away".

    I'm sure the person who said that believes sensors (especially SJ's) lack depth and understanding to join a thread like this and discuss theories and ideas with ease or genuine knowledge, just pretending to know for the sake of developing a hivemind mentality or sabotaging their true "superficiality". Also that intuitives score 155 on an IQ test and sensors around 70.

    I think function preference is characterized when certain type of cognition is so neurologically stimulating that you automatically default to using it over the other functions.

    So, Sensors will always get energy from making use of their sense impressions in a way that I never will. Moreover, Sensors could choose to focus less on the sensory impressions themselves, and more on their conceptual interpretations (what does this mean and why?) , then imagining how the world could (or will) change to be more accord with those interpretations. The thing is they will probably never get as much stimulation from doing that as I do.

    I still think it's a biased statement, claiming sensors lack depth and intuitves have all this beautiful understanding of everything.

    That's a hyperbole, of course, but I dislike the notion that intuitives always understand sensors and can sense, and yet a sensor is often incapable of being abstract. That's bullshit- all types can be abstract. How much one can abstract is indicative of preference. It's just more of the "intuitives are rare and therefore special" bullshit that's littered all over these forums like salty garbage.

    It needs to stop. Imagine how many sj's in particular feel about themselves; I'm sure many worry about being unlikable. Now I'm just getting mushy (:

    Everyone has sensing and intuitive functions, the question is how much of each does that individual have and which one they use dominantly.

    But isn't that just more of the same "intuitives are awesome, sensors are drones" mentality that is so prevalent on this forum? I agree with @hoopla in the fact this bias is nearly constant and always damaging. Bias needs to be banned, but how does one ban prejudice?
