    Default Giveaways of type

    What kinds of things do you see people doing in real life that just gives away a certain preference, or combination of preferences immediately?

    For instance, the person who is yacking away at you even while you stand there quiet is likely an Extravert.

    Or for instance, Bath and Body Works just HAS to be filled to the brim with Sensors.

    Or, go to a library, find the people hiding in a corner reading...Introvert spotted in their habitat.

    I just thought those kinds of things are interesting to know, the dead giveaways. I guess me saying that is a clear indicator that I'm a Sensor!

    Um... do you want this by letter or by sets of them?

    Sets: Military members are probably SJs. Besides that, I dunno... I have a few ideas, but I don't want to accidentally offend anyone.

    Individual letters: Really abstract people who talk about "negative capability" and deep new-agey metaphors are probably Ns. Obsessive organizers are probably Js. People who cry a lot in movies and such are PROBABLY Fs. Chronically late people are probably Ps.

    I'm not sure about any DEAD giveaways, though. And I dunno about that Bath and Body Works comment. I know some N types who like smelly lotion a lot more than I do.

    EDIT: This thread is just asking for people to stereotype.

    Well, I've made lists just for the fun of it. Legend has it that ISTJs like to make lists.

    If you go to "Bed, Bath and Beyond", you'll find me in the "Beyond" section.

    true from my experience...do you keep yours in your pocket at all times too?

    No, that's actually not very convenient for me, from what I've found. But at home, when I get excited about an idea, I put it in a chart or a list.

    But seriously, I have lists, saved on my computer, of things that have no real importance. It was fun to make them, though!

    I'm like that, too. I organize things that don't need organizing (and yet don't organize things that actually need it). Hey, there's a sign of a J type! If they're really disorganized, they might still be a J if they need other things to be arranged perfectly. (I had a super-disorganized slacker J friend in school who made stem-and-leaf plots of each day's math class assignment problem numbers... just because he wanted to. Yeesh!)

    Sometimes I feel like I have "accomplished" something just by making a list to do things related to various goals. LOL

    Later, if I miss a deadline, I may think "I thought I did that already!" And then I look and see that I had somehow confused "doing" with "intending to do".

    Sometimes, as I start to write down something on a list, I will suddenly realize that it is too important to trust to a list that may get lost, and I will simply do it right away, immediately.

    Something similar may happen as I am telling a friend about what I need to be doing, just rambling away with them. I mention something that I would have forgotten otherwise. "Whoa ! That was a close one." I'll say to myself. Then I'll have to try to end the conversation politely so that I can take care of it right away.
