    That's a lie

    Being an intuitive means you more naturally trust your intuition over your senses. Being a sensor means your more naturally trust your senses over your intuition.

    We've all got senses and intuitions, and we can all use them to good use, they just come more or less naturally to certain people.

    Well according to cognitive functions that wouldn't work. Si/Se types have Ni/Ne at the bottom of their function stacks and Ni/Ne types have Si/Se at the bottom of their function stacks. That's if you believe in MBTI and type theory though.

    Wrong. I used to walk around my school thinking everyone that everyone was a mindless drone on my cynical of days. They only cared about this stupid thing or that stupid thing. Then I realized when prompted by teachers (of all people) these mindless drones revealed their incredible ability to think deeply and make calculated decisions about questions to interpret meaning.
    Here it turned out that they were not mindless at all but that I was indeed senseless not to recognize their mindfulness.

    Nah that's bullshit. Might've been said by someone who thinks sensing has to do with just using the 5 senses.

    I think they meant that an intuitor can speak whatever sensors speak, but not always vice versa.

    Sensors have and do use intuition, but to say they can be intuitives is a different matter. It's like saying speaking French makes you French. I think this is true of intuitives, too. We can speak the language of sensors, but we are not sensors.
