The title pretty much says it. It took me I think longer than most to realize this. Perhaps it is because I'm an leading but before socionics I really did think that people processed information the same way as I did as ignorant as that sounds. I'd attribute differences in people to reasons why I would act differently if I were them rather than oh that's just them. I'm not quite sure what that would relate to in socionics really though. I did realize early on with two valuing parents that my was different but I thought it was a problem with me rather than a different way of processing information. I think intuitive types may have figured out that they were different from others or that others were different from each other earlier on than sensing types but thats just my hypothesis. So a couple questions:
1. When did you realize people processed information differently before you learned about socionics if socionics didn't introduce you to that notion.
2. Do you think there are certain types or functions that figure this out earlier than others?
