    Default What are the tell-tale signs of the different types?

    I'd like to be able to recognize people a bit better, so I'm wondering what some of the most obvious signs that people are a specific type are. What are phrases that particularly apply to certain types... as in what phrases would a particular type typically say? What are the easiest things to immediately recognize in the different types?

    I'm also somewhat interested in the answers to this because I'm curious as tyo how people see INFP's from outside.

    Social skills are something an S, and particularly SF, tends to have more of. It's easier for them to fit in.

    An N, on the other hand, may wish to socialize, but they are often less effective. And since their behavior is less mainstream, they have greater risk of becoming alienated, because an S-dominated world perceives the N's unconventional behavior as obnoxious. Individualistic behavior is often considered anti-social or non-social.

    Ugh. Tell me about it. I feel like I have to monitor the way I act so much in social situations. Lame. F** that though. I'm an individual.

    Oh and where on earth are you getting this:

    from? Some survey I never heard about? Where is your perception coming from?

    And about the SFs having the most social skills....nope...I have to say if one type gets the prize for best social skills it's ENFJ...hands down...behind that would be EXFP I guess. And ISFPs are often some of the most eccentric people you will meet so maybe the other SFs fit in easily but I dunno about ISFPs. Hmmm skill wise I think ENFJ wins and ENFPs are at the same level as ESFPs but when it comes to fitting in NFs prolly do have a harder time fitting in than SFs....but by how much?...not enough to matter at all IMO. Anyone can fit in if they want to....I don't want to though...conforming is a betch.

    The INTJ is the quiet, reserved, practical one, until you finally pry them open and figure out that they're a total wackjob.

    Yeah, but the wackjob tends to be more fun...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
