The answer will help you learn and build confidence. Practice. Also, make it into a game with yourself or a friend.
    This is pretty good advice. Experiment and make a lot of guesses at first (trials and error). See when you get it right and when you get it wrong and try to form a pattern out of that. Then see if you can use that pattern for successful reading in the future. Make it a game with some friends so that you're learning in a low-pressure environment.

    But yeah! What @entropie said: observe and deduce! Haha

    Hey, "psychics" do it...can't all be TV.

    Are you trolling or do you really live that much in a fantasy world?

    I love love LOVE mystery novels, but I've pointed out that fictional detectives are fictional.

    no i am not trolling.

    sometimes reality gets too real for me and i need a place to escape and tv is it. It is just my therapy and i need it to escape into a place not near any of this reality shit.

    Shawn Spencer is not real but his character isn't really that much of a fantasy is it?

    I like reading Agatha Christie novels, and Hercule Poirot is one of the original "amazing" detectives, and her stories always end with great sweeping acts of justice and the offending party being apprehended, and it's so wonderful, if only real life was so neatly tied up in a bow where "good" could triumph over "evil."

    Everyone needs that, no matter their type or age, I think...we all need to exercise our fantasy and our wish-fulfillment.

    On the other hand, detectives which are seemingly magical are a fictional creation. And what is ironic about your lament about reality is that in order to become more observant in the way that you would wish, is that you must pay more attention to real people and details about those people...did you read my earlier post that I made about the ISTJ I know who does similar things, notices little details and infers information from his past experience from it, from his filing cabinet in his mind?

    I honestly think some people (and perhaps types, like ISTJs) may be naturally inclined toward this from a young age.

    That doesn't mean you can't increase your observational skills. It's just that you have to be realistic about it if you really want to become a better 'detective.'

    If your friend or the ISTJ you know looks at the people and analyses them at a deeper level than what is most obvious wouldn't be be an INTJ? iN are the ones that really makes the deeper connection.

    Ugh he is such an Si dom it's ridiculous. He can see crumbs from across the room. He's got laser eyes. I already described to you the concrete linear connections he makes, like for example he knows that a certain brand of socks means someone probably plays tennis, et al.

    Maybe you should study personality theory.

    The ISTJ sees what other people miss because he is MORE OBSERVANT and he cares more about these tiny details, and he wants to categorize people according to those details.

    ISTJs have inferior Ne, too, which they utilize a little more as they get older, and he's more balanced I think than some Si dom/aux in this regard.

    If you think Ns own the market on making connections between things, you have much to learn, grasshopper.

    yo, check that out. Check the last 1:30 mins where he talks about a women coming in all smiling and then he asks her if she lost someone close to her recently and her husband just died last week and she burst into tears and he talks about how even though she was smiling they were still clues showing how she lost someone. And this is real life too, is it possible for me? Do you need natural talent? Can hard work surpass it?

    Dude, I tell you what: if you just believe all your dreams can come true. And I say that against my whole scientifical nature: if you just believe, even PizzaHut can open a store in your basement !

    Yeah of course people who are naturally good at noticing details (read: noticing details, and adding them up to a concrete possiblity; not analyzing underlying context that other people miss) and/or reading people are gonna be better at it.

    But apparently you should study Orson Wells.
