About 70 years ago, "Computer" was a job title. NACA High Speed Flight Station "Computer Room" (1949)
I've heard this argument a lot too. It's true people will find some new jobs, I'm sure freelancing will become more common, but I think this is missing the point.
Strangely, the people who make this point of new jobs being created will at the same time still acknowledge that AI could make practically any routine and repetitive jobs obsolete. God knows how many people rely on this type of labor.
If this type of work becomes too obsolete then the job market is going to become increasingly more centered around higher skilled specialists, which might be fine if you're one of those who had the luxury of a higher education but without the low-skill work then poor, young or otherwise disadvantaged people would fall behind even further.

Well, the school system doesn't help promote intuition.
I more or less agree with this.

There is absolutely no doubt that school teachings are geared towards SJ types: Just follow the protocol, absorb it and repeat it on the test to make sure you got it. But most of my teachers always told me it was just that...protocol.and encouraged me to explore the subject matter further, which is somewhat intuitive (or at least prolongation of Si).

If anything, I'd say the education completely fails SP types. They have no patience for learning, they just want to go out there and do stuff but schools look down on that big time. Literally every drop out I know is an SP type and I can't blame them.

I would say that it is better to develop different education approaches for people who prefer invention and some sorts of vision or even critical thinking. And another one, for people who prefer to just get a job and live their lives. However I can see why there isn't much of a discussion on that kind of development. Anyways I would argue that current education supports mainly the NJ and SJ types. NPs and SPs are at a disadvantage.

The S/N distribution may not be favorable for current or future conditions of living. In the past, before all this industrialization, sensors had a definite advantage. As we move more toward the automation of everything, intuitives might have the upper hand. Although, it won't be intuitives having the upper hand so much as smart intuitives. The kinds of people who can design complex systems and out-think the algorithms. The rest of humanity seem pretty much fucked, unless the overlords see fit to be kind and create a sort of zoo society where everybody is fed and provided for without actually needing to be useful.

Yeah, current scenario favors N more than it did in the past. If we look into the N vs S ratio, it does seem that N percentage is slowly increasing.

Well, atleast based on my observation, S types far outweigh N population. It is actually hard to find an N type in real life.
In this website: mbti-typings.my-free.website/ It's pretty clear that Intuitives outnumber Sensors (there are scarcely any examples of ISFJ or ISTJ, for example, compared with ENTP or ENFP).

The Intuitives you are specifically referring to might be 12PM Energy beings, or heterosexual 9-12PM-ygg Energy beings.

Please refer to this thread concerning Energy beings: Energy-based people (who relies on internal feelings)...
