    typing people is much simpler if you ignore functions altogether. if you use the temperaments you will find that it is extremely simple to type people. the differences between an NF and an SJ should be quite obvious.

    Sometimes straight down through- I/E, N/S, F/T, J/P. When I don't do it that way I usually get the E/I and N/S first. Then J/P, and finally F/T last.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Agreed. From my limited experience at typing people I know IRL anyway.

    I'm pretty new to MBTI, so typing people is not second nature for me, but I do find it easy to identify introverts and intuitives, probably because I am one. I know how they think...

    Now how can one recognize the introverts and intuitives from across a room?
    "Verbally: not attached to feeling, and often disregard them altogether in favor of the next two higher functions."

    To clarify, it's been helpful for me to identify signs of Fe in people. I suspect that this is the case because I have such strong Fi. In Socionics, I used the Lookalike entp-estp for my example--though how one first detects another's type likely varies from type perception to type perception. I say this because I tend to notice Fe in this pair right away, rather than their Ti.

    Let's ask if ixtps tend to detect Te before Fi in enfp and esfps (another extrovert Lookalike pair)!

    P and J are difficult to type just from observing ther person. Most people don't even know the difference between EP and EJ.

    Generally I just look at their type on their profile. If they don't have it on their profile, I have them take the test. If they won't take the test, my curiosity remains unsatisfied.

    That's what I do too. Look at the temperament first.
    And certain behavioral combinations. EP's, ST's etc..
