    Do you sensors find INXX types boring?

    While not all INXX types are low on energy, the majority of them are. We tend to prefer one-on-one situations, or small close group situations, where we can engage in meaningful conversation.

    Respectively, we don't often enjoy going out a lot, unless it's like the above: one on one or in the small group. If a friend says, "Hey, I'm going to this large get together," we are very much inclined to say no.

    Sensors (even some of your introverts) seem much at ease in those situations, and enjoy the excitement of tickling the senses. So I wondering if you find us introverted and intuitive types boring?

    Do you enjoy the meaningful talks? Do you enjoy them more, less, or about the same as the friends that like doing all the activities?

    I don't find them boring, I like them as a rule. I am more likely to get frustrated if they are introverting and won't talk to me, for example, or if they NEVER go in public to me. I love meaningful talks. Can't get enough of them in fact. If all my conversations were deep and meaningful I would be very happy. But I also like frequent conversation: to me it's meaningful just because it's there, and I hate the feeling that I'm being ignored or only being socialized with when there's some grand purpose.
    Just speaking from personal experience though.

    ISTJs are not that great at socializing.

    yes from what i gathered, INFJs are very reserved, appears to be shy, and would not really talk to you until you talk to them.

    i like hanging around people i know, usually a small group of people. i do a pretty good job fooling people i am very sociable when i am dealing with strangers. =].
    uhh i like to have small talks, and as well as large talks, but mostly i like say stupid stuff like i just did and just to have fun. =]

    oh as for you question, it really depends on the INFJ. because if i smile at you and you smile back, then everything is going to be peachy. the INFJ girl and I seems to get along fine, and i tease her, and she send back some sarcasm my way too. tbh, i think i am the boring one when compared to INFJs, because they seems like to do stuff, where as i just like to talk, and be silly. anywhere i can do those two things, i am super happy.


    might have problems with INTJ and INTPs though.

    No, I don't find INXX types to be boring. You're equating S with social extroversion for some reason. I would be very uncomfortable at a large get together.

    "Do you enjoy meaningful talks?"

    Who would answer no to this question? "Nah bro, I only enjoy talks when they're meaningless."

    Right on point. The question assumes the meaning of the term to be in the sense of what many intuitives use it for in describing preferred conversations, namely abstract, theoretical, or very personal - anything that might be considered "deep" or requiring more thought - as opposed to small talk or gossip.

    Many have to come to see this divide as reflective of N vs S, but that's nonsensical; no one has a monopoly on what is "meaningful." Just because the social implications of the g-factor or the future of the post-industrial West isn't being discussed doesn't mean the conversation isn't meaningful, or serving an important function. This is a lingering shadow of the sensor bias: thinking they can't/ don't want to engage in such discussions, or find them unusual.

    For what it's worth, my two sensor acquaintances (one certainly an ISTJ) find me pretty boring/weird.

    IN's, boring? Not at all! some of my best friends are INTP's. But then, i'm a bit strong on my intuitive functions (I have the feeling that a combination of Se and Ti can form a nice simulation of Ne, but with more energy required).

    Weird? Oh yes. But normal people are just people you don't know yet. I love talking about things that defy the 'S don't like/understand theoretical things' stereotype bullshit. Yes, it's true that I don't have an intuitive understanding of non-logical philosophy, but that doesn't mean I don't find it interesting.

    And I like nothing more than talking about nonsense and improvising bullshit on the spot. I once had a long conversation on how cotton candy ('sugar spider/spinned sugar' in Dutch the 'spin' in 'suikerspin' can mean both) is actually a mating ritual of two sugar spiders that go on to lie their eggs in bear cubs which turn into gummy bears as the larvae consume the bear from inside out.

    *ahum*

    As I said, I don't hink IN's are boring. Actually, nobody is boring. Some F's can be annoying though, but that's just because I don't understand them. I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

    The same applies to many of us too.

    Are you sure? I don't think it applies to all sensors.

    No, INxx's are not boring.

    You don't judge a fish based on it's ability to fly, and you don't judge an eagle on its ability to swim. If I judge them on the SJ metric of getting things done efficiently, obviously they're not gonna stack up well. Of course, same goes if some xNxx judges me on abstract stuff with little practical meaning - which I don't bother much for.

    There is a fine line between "weird" and "interesting", I'd say. We'd probably just write off the weird as something despicable, but be curious about the interesting stuff.

    Having worked with many NT and NF sorts over the years, it is sometimes fascinating to understand how differently they view things from me. Some perspectives that they had, I would probably never have considered it from that angle. Of course, they probably felt the same way.

    Yes, we ISxJ like meaningful talks in general, but you can't take a 1 size fits all approach in comparing these kind of things.

    It's not the number of people that matters, it's whether or not I know them. If I have even one person who I know that I can talk to, I'll be much more comfortable than I am in a group of strangers.

    I wouldn't say I'm at ease. I'm just good at hiding my uneasiness. As for whether IN's are boring... I have an INTJ friend who I enjoy talking with immensely, and an INFP sister who I love dearly and get along with very well. I'm not sure if I know any other IN's, though I'd love to talk or debate with an INFJ (since they're supposed to have a worldview totally unlike an ISTJ's).

    If by "meaningful" you mean "deep", then yes. I hate discussing minutia (e.g. "How was your day?" type questions) more than is necessary, partially because it's often uninteresting and partially because I'm bad at supplying minutia for the discussion. Sometimes, if I'm interested in a topic, I can pursue it to the point where others (such as my ESTP dad, who's a lawyer and has to deal with this sort of discussion of deep topics) are exhausted, whereas I could keep going seemingly forever. So yes, I do enjoy "meaningful" discussion.

    I think you should have asked about Se doms/auxs, not about S-preferrers in general.

    Ahahahahaha I love IN types!! They're hilarious. I like to fuck with them sometimes because they're just so darn adorkable. <3 Its all in good fun though. :)

    And yes I like meaningful conversations. As someone above me mentioned, I would imagine most people do.
