    I don't understand directing information style. How could it be more effective than informing? Ultimately, people hate and rebel to people with directing style. It's effective in a crysis situation when time cannot be wasted, otherwise...

    "Shhh! It's hard to hear." (you see here there's the command, followed by information)

    which when informing is...

    "I can't hear what's being said, you're talking too loud."

    and informing tempered by directing, but still informing, would be...

    "It's hard to hear, please, keep it down." (here you have information, followed by a command)

    OK, I suppose I prefer informing then directing.

    I'd say " You're annoying me" then "Shut Up".

    It depends on how deeply the amateur is willing to understand, or what framework he is familiar with, if any. Temperaments, and Interaction Styles (which are just temperaments in a different area of interaction) have been mapped to the MBTI, and temperament is based on expressive and responsive behavior scales. Directing and Informing is one of the responsiveness factors, and is very observable in people's behavior. So with this factor, a person familiar with temperament theory will know where it fits in the types, and it's also a big clue for someone trying to type themselves or someone else.

    If you really try noticing directing and informing in real life.... If your looking for 'drill seargant' style, then nobody you see will be a directing type.

    Enter the stereotypes. Directing isn't neccesarily rude. Sure, "shutup" is directing, but so is "Here. Go to this webpage and read this article, it's really interesting".

    And I know that it's also possible to be very irritating with informing. Call it 'attitude'. I know I had one ENFJ blow up in my face when I was being condescending and teasing her about a mistake she made in physics class.

    Yeah, I rarely if ever encounter the drill Sargent style.

    Would the informing version be "Here. You can go to this webpage to read this article, it's really interesting."

    And for "shut up", would the informing (and equally rude) version be "Will you please shut up?"

    Ah, you have to approach NFJs with caution when it comes to judging them in school. They will Fe all over you.

    You like video games, I see...

    (I don't know if that was informative or directive.)

    No, that's still directing!

    hmm. I think informing would be something like "Jeez, you are being such a moron"
