intuition vs sensing

  1. INFP or ISFP?

    What's my personality type?
    I've done a lot of research into my personality type. I've done every free online test I can find and every time I've got the same result - INFP. On tests where you can see the percentages (for example, your percentage of feeling vs thinking) I always get Introversion, Intuition, Feeling and...
  2. Ni and the Subconscious Mind

  3. Are intuitives at a disadvantage as musicians?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    It seems to me that a majority of musicians tend to be sensors. This made me wonder if intuitives could be as talented as sensors when it comes to making music. It's kind of disheartening when all of my idols in the music industry are sensors and I am not.
  4. [ISFJ] Am I ISFJ or INFJ?

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    My results constantly change between ISFJ and INFJ. I used to only get INFJ, but I've recently been getting ISFJ. I've read both of them a lot, and they both sound like me. People change with age, so I've been identifying as ISFJ with this in mind, but the Socionics test keeps telling me that...
  5. Claiming INFJ or Intuition When Asked About Personality Type

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I recently asked a group of my friends to tell me their MBTI types if they knew them. The responses were as follows: 1. INFJ 2. INFJ 3. ENTJ 4. INFP 5. INFJ 6. INTJ 7. XNXJ 8. ENFP 9. XNXP 10. ENTP/ENTJ 11. ENFP/ENFJ 12. INFJ 13...
  6. Am I Si or Ni dominant?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've been able to figure out that my tertiary function is Ti, so at this point at least I'm sure of me being IXFJ. I thought I was INFJ for sure because while I do have a good memory, details don't come to me naturally. If I remember details it's mostly random or about stuff I'm really...
  7. "An intuitive can be a sensor, but a sensor can't be an intuitive."

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Heard someone say that somewhere. What do you make of it?
  8. ENFJ? ESFJ? Who knows?

    What's my personality type?
    So, I've been calling myself ENFJ for a while now, but I've always been confused about the difference between N and S. After reconsidering the other letters, too, I'm fairly certain they are accurate—I get my energy from spending time with others, I make choices that serve to improve others'...
  9. MBTI Perceiving Functions Conprehensively Explained

    Myers Briggs Forum
    First, let’s forget that MBTI has profiles. Second, expect to see slight alterations to the common model. 1. Concrete Perception – Sensory vs Abstract Perception – Intuitive To understand the difference between concrete perception and abstract perception, you have to imagine that we...
  10. Please help me figure out what type I am! I'm so weird!

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I really can't figure out what my personality "type" is...and it's so frustrating that I can hardly stand it! When I test I always get strong results for IxxJ, but my other two preferences are harder to distinguish apparently. I usually get results that indicate feeling over thinking but...
  11. Sensing vs intuition

    Hiii! I'm still super new to all this personality type stuff, and I just can't quite grasp the difference between the sensing and the intuition. Anyone have a real simple way of putting it? Thankiess <3
  12. [INTP] INTP or ISTP

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Ah... the forums. A perfect place to get people to do work for you. Occasionally, I have scored as an ISTP. Maybe this is just because I have a lower Intuition function than that of most INTPs. I'm about 95% positive that I'm an INTP, but I guess it just boils down to the fact that I kinda...
  13. N vs S: discerning symbolism within a high amount of detail.

    Cognitive Functions
    I was watching this video and I noticed that it was incredibly easy for me to recognize numbers from frame to frame despite there being a high amount of detailed information surrounding them. How about you guys, was it easy to pick up on the numbers or does the swapping of the surrounding...
  14. How to Annoy an Intuitor

    Myers Briggs Forum
    This is a light-hearted thread simply created in response to "How to Annoy a Sensor", because I saw that the opposite didn't yet exist. Not only did I think that it would be amusing to make fun of ourselves, but sensors can also take their revenge. How can one specifically annoy, irk, and/or...
  15. How to Annoy a Sensor

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I wrote this on the MBTI jokes thread. Seems like it deserves its own, because I can only come up with really crummy ones. Here's what I wrote in the other thread. Also: 13. Be thirty seconds late. 14. Ask them why they like parties constantly. 15. Buy them a cat. 16. For SPs, buy them a day...
  16. You Know You're A Sensor When...

    Myers Briggs Forum
    As the title said, folks. You know you're a sensor when: You spend five hours to read and re-read a book about the basic theory of a software, yet you still don't get it, while your Intuitor friend read it once in less than 2 hours and is able to operate the software. You then ask her to teach...
