    Usually, the E/I is the easiest for me to guage though.
    That's how it usually goes for me.

    No, this is not incorrect. This is the basis for MBTI--it was influenced by Jung, but it's not the same thing, and it gets kind of vague and not so useful once you start trying to associate behaviors in other people with exact functions.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    S/N is the first thing I get a feel for, usually. Not always, but often. T/F comes next, and E/I and J/P are the ones that are most likely to trip me up. It's deceptively hard to tell whether people are introverted or extraverted on first acquaintance. And then there are some people who are so balanced that it's hard to type them at all.
