So, I just found out that I'm an intuitive just the other day, and it was liberating.

Now I know why I'm so misunderstood. Apparently, this shallow, sensor-ridden world has no place for a deep thinker like me. It's infuriating as hell. Just the other day, for example, my teacher lectured me for not doing my homework. What she, as a sensor, doesn't know, though, is that homework is too much of a sensory activity for an intuitive like me. Honestly, as an intuitive, I have absolutely zero control over my physical surroundings. When I tried to do said homework, for example, I couldn't get off my bed, and my hands wouldn't move an inch - it was completely hopeless. When I tried to explain this to my teacher, she said I was just lazy. See how misunderstood I am? Just because she doesn't understand my struggles as an intuitive, she dismissed me as being lazy! Ugh. What she, as a typical sensor doesn't realize, though, is that sensors have it easy, as they, unlike intuitives, are able to control their bodies and physical surroundings.

Even my parents are complete sensors too. I know this because they are completely obsessed with housework. Honestly, they do housework every. Single. Day. How can that not be an obsession? And worst of all, they keep trying to force me into that obsession by forcing me into doing it too! Just, ugh. When I tried explaining to them about how I hate housework as an intuitive, they told me that "oh, everyone hates it. But it still must be done." Like, wth? Sensors obviously don't, since they do it all the time! Intuitives like me, however, hate housework and other sensory stuff like that, as we much prefer to be in our heads, and are much too preoccupied with our deep, insightful, thought-provoking, mind-blowing, revolutionary thoughts to be bothered with uneccesary shit like that. Honestly, I just feel so misunderstood by my parents.

Seriously, I don't know why society favors sensors in the first place. Like, why do ESTJs get to be the ones to run big corporations instead of INTPs like me. Since ESTJs are linked to action-orientedness or whatever, I asked my friend just the other day why society likes action-oriented people. She then answered: "Because the world likes people who get things done." Like, wow, just wow. What a sensor. So you're saying that just because intuitives cant get things done, society doesn't favor us? That's so fucking unfair. Just because we intuitives are completely incapable of getting sensory things done due to our overly abstract, phenomenal, mind-blowingly complicated thoughts, it doesn't mean that we don't get to be as successful. When I expressed this sentiment to my friend, she just - believe it or not - stared at me blankly and said "nobody gives a shit about your thoughts when you don't put them into any action." And I'm just like, Jesus, what a rude sensor! Honestly, why are intuitives so misunderstood? Ugh.

Also, my parents don't think I'm special. But, seriously, what do they know? I tried to tell them that I am special due to all the communication errors I had in past (because my thoughts are totally much too complicated for those people to understand), and they just told me straight-up that "communication errors are part of the learning process that everyone goes through." Just. Ugh. What a sensory thing to say. Then I argued that I'm already totally mature and that those people just don't think as deeply as I do, and they just said "how do you know that? Do you have access to their minds?" Ugh, I just hate sensors so much. Like, how do they know that I'm not an outcast at heart? They don't even have access to my mind. It drives me crazy!

So yeah, as you guys can tell from this insightful and thought-provoking post that's dug out from my intuitive mind, I really hate sensors. I, like, totally knew I did before I learned what MBTI even was.

Sensors are indeed rather strange animals, but are renowned for their sensing ability which enables them to focus intently on a specific, erect object for long periods of time.

I believe that we should take advantage of their talents.

I thought you were serious until I read the replies. I was going to give you a smack for being a whiny lazy c***.
Okay, now I feel hypocritical because I was a pretty lazy teen. But I'm not anymore... Does that still make me hypocritical?
