    Default How do you quickly identify types?

    Lately, when I meet someone I quickly try to identify which type they are for fun. It's much easier for me when I think about the whole personality type in a sort of cartoon version. For example, my friend's dad is always improving his home (which he is very proud of) and the biggest compliment you could give him is ask for seconds when he cooks. So I immediately thought, "ESFJ." How do you think of each type in a sort of cartoon version like that? Another example would be "I can quickly identify an ESFP because they act like life's a constant party."
    E - 79% I - 21%
    S - 53% N - 47%
    T - 32% F - 68%
    J - 32% P - 68%

    It seems like you know some of the generalities. You just need to keep stacking up little identifiers like that to get a quicker and more accurate idea of someone's type.

    This is good advice. It's important to remember, though, that typology accuracy is directly proportional to amount of available data. The longer you've known someone and observed his/her behavior, the more accurately you can label him. You'll start to come up with more specific labels, like, "He's borderline INTP/INFP with a very strong I preference, but once in a while he gets into a really annoying J mood", etc.

    Typing people upon first interaction is a lot of fun, but keep in mind that your first impression is just that: a first impression, which should always be subject to change as newer data becomes available.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Ditto.

    Although for me it's like I either know their type for sure or I don't bother.

    I try to look if they fit into 1 of the four categories:

    1) unconventional, humourus, overbearing
    2) people-oriented, impersonal, harmonical
    3) insensitive, goal-oriented, keeping track
    4) insightful, pragmatic, remarkable

    After that I know their type.

    What I still need to get to know then is the person behind it.

    Therefore the above mentioned process is totally in vane.

    I don't know my functions. So, I try to see whether they are E/I, then S/N, then T/F, then J/P. But, this is incorrect. What I should really do is just narrow down their top two functions, and this should get me 90% of the way there.

    Usually, the E/I is the easiest for me to guage though.
