    Well, yeah sure. Try it out on every F user, I'm sure you would get some smacks on your face (i would believe maybe incase 93%+ of the time).

    Actually the only two people who've ever slapped me after criticizing them were INTP and ENFP, and to be frank I was only doing it for laughs, so I kinda had it coming.

    Of course I know you don't mean literally, and you really mean they'd be upset, that much is true.

    Well, I type people I come across or observe online, but just for fun, though. I don't need anything additional to be able to understand them because it just comes natural to me, and isn't something I really think about at all.

    Well yeah. I type according traits I've learned from MBTI for fun to. Although figuring people out is something I do instinctively, good/bad, feeler/thinker. It would not have matter if I've read about MBTI (although it helps giving structure to thoughts), I would try to predict their actions or/and attitudes anyway.

    Yes, I have a slight tendency to drone. albeit enthusiastically, so it helps to know if my message will fall on deaf ears or will not be received "well," or "accurately." When I'm feeling bored or about to daydream, I stop myself and devote a brief amount of my time to observe, analyze, and emulate other types. At least in thought, it's a handy exercise that can help with communication. I try and suppress some of my natural biases and tendencies so I can truly see the motives and actions for what they really are.

    I feel like that is the best way to understand different people, because they are inherently a lot more complex than most of us can perceive or comprehend. The most interesting thing for me is to just really create mental models of their thought processes and figure out why their valuations, interpretations, manipulations and transformations are utilized. I'm a very Q and A oriented thinker so it helps to run little simulations based on that technique. It's usually contextually oriented as well, for example if I'm sitting in class I try and step back a bit and just follow their arguments or conversations. My ADD afflicts me with the incapability (or capability depending on how you view it) to sort out and block out ambient conversations. typology is sort of my synthetic way of dealing with that little "issue."
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Default Do you think about typology in your day-to-day interactions with people?

    Yeah, of course. All the time.
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    No. I have tried to type some people just for the heck of it (and kept the info to myself) but I never take advantage of this "knowledge". I don't even remember which types I typed people. I don't feel like I have to. I got a lot better typology going on all the time. I think it is called intuition...

    i do it constantly to the point that it is now sub/un-conscious. i type by temperaments

    Working in a department store, I've started typing customers a bit. I'm noticing the things that are easy to spot, like temperaments. Even preference combinations that aren't real temperaments are sometimes easy to spot, like FJ. I'd imagine an SF would take things a lot more personally than an NF. I get annoyed with FP's though. Their barrage of morals gives me a headache.

    Sometimes I do for fun. But I don't build the relationship off it.
