    Long-Term Sensors and Short-Term iNtuitives

    Okay, I'm thinking about something here. Statistically most people who are iNtuitives are better long-term thinkers, but not all are. Alternatively most Sensors are generally considered short-term thinkers, likewise, they aren't all that way.

    That being said is there anybody here who is an N and is fairly short-sighted or impulsive, or an S, who is very long-term in thinking?

    Though classified as an ENTJ, I have a number of characteristics that are ESTJ like as well, which is what prompted the question

    I think you're talking about stereotypes. I think long-term all the time.

    Being a sensor is about preferring to perceive things in a concrete way, not about being "short-sighted."

    INTP - The Thinkers

    Building on what @Stephen said, I think ISTJs would be more long-sighted than INTPs (even just going by stereotype), for example. I think it depends both on what kind of S and what kind of N you're talking about—not to mention the other functions they're working with. Ti-Ne doesn't make for long-term anything much since it doesn't have to even ground itself in the real world if it doesn't want to. Time (for me) feels irrelevant most of the time! So…yes, I can be impulsive.

    I could see how Ti-Se/Se-Ti might come off as short-sighted. Yet…they still seem to plan more consistently than INTPs in my experience and are more stereotypically impulsive.

    So…all I've actually done is muddled your question >.>.

    I don't think it's an N vs S thing, but more-so a P vs J thing. SJ's and NJ's both like to plan ahead, SJ's referring to their past experience for a working plan, NJ's coming up with one that might work. SP's and NP's don't care much for plans because they like to keep their options open. They might come up with future possibilities, but they will only act on/materialize the ones that seem appropriate at the time.

    Basically, anyone can see long-range, but how and why may differ.

    Ni & Si contribute to a long term perspective

    Ne & Se contribute to a short term perspective

    Assuming you're ENTJ, your short-term-ism is due to Se and not the ESTJ's Si

    Also with maturity, Ti-Se/Se-Ti, the latter is what I have, one is better able to take into consideration the future (long-sighted thinking). I think younger people will be developmentally lacking in certain cognitive functions which can lead to personality flaws. A less mature Ti-Se/Se-Ti will be more impulsive and inconsiderate. After maturing, the same person should be able to make wiser decisions.

    So basically eg

    Intuitive: Uni...bla bla bla... accommodation on campus....renting out a flat...bla bla bla awesome..gona get wasted all the time
    Sensor: Well i've actually got to pass this year first before i even starting thinking about that. 'Concentrates on work'.

    I don't know how you misconstrued @Stephen 's words this way.

    You switched the stereotypes, that isn't what @Stephen was saying. He was just saying that S vs N is different in the way they perceive things, not about being short-term or long-term thinkers.

    Sensors prefer but are NOT limited to concrete information. The same goes for Intuitives, they prefer but are NOT limited to abstract information. No one is 100% Sensor or 100% Intuitive, that would not make for a well-rounded person. Everyone has all the cognitive functions but uses them to varying degrees.
    Stephen thanked this post.
