    If you're looking for a *quick* and (semi)accurate result, I'd have to think Nightning's point is well taken... just ask. Even a good observational method is too dependent upon the small sample size of data you have with which to make your decision. What if the person's preoccupied with something, or in a situation that's doesn't allow a nonbiased reaction? You just can't tell. Either get to know them a bit better, or ask.

    I like this. it's simple, yet so effective for the first-guessing purpose

    It works too. Be careful though, because if you're not at work, SJs might be thinking about leaving to catch up on work.

    That's a good point.
    I have been pleasantly surprised a couple of times.

    But isn't an extravert paying attention to their surroundings too? Or not?

    It's what they're thinking about what's important. Everyone pays some attention to their surroundings, but Ns are obviously less concerned with the here and now.

    Oh, I don't know -- considering that 99% of the people who have ever been introduced to the MBTI think they prefer Intuition, maybe observing their actual behavior would be a better way to go.

    The humanmetrics test can get a lot of ST's mistyped as NT's because of the contemplation questions. An ST can find themselves exposed to a lot of N things out of interest, but it doesn't mean it comes as easily to them as it would for an N.

    Yeah, exactly --- another reason why it makes all the difference if you know why someone's interested in something. Anyone can get interested in a topic or pastime for any number of reasons. The reason WHY they continue to pursue certain interests tells you more about temperamental values and skills than WHAT they choose to do.
