    Default Tell-Tale Signs of the Types

    Okay, since I'm still just trying to learn to type people, and finding it quite difficult (especially in older people, as is expected) I found myself wondering... Rather than me trying to familiarize myself with all the types... Is there a shortcut? Or... are there specific tell-tale signs of type?

    For example, in my blog, you guys picked up on my habitual reading of nutrition facts as a tell-tale ISTJ trait. What would you say are some tell-tale signs of the other types?
    By the way, I'm the girl in the picture, lol.... happily married though, so don't even...

    INFJs can tend to look somehow serious, but stoned at the same time.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    ISFPs wriggle their eyebrows a lot when they get animated.

    How do you spot INTJ or ENTP? I honestly have no idea.

    INTJs are quiet and they act like they are surrounded by idiots.

    Ah, that's easy: the INTJ is the evil guy who secretly wishes to control the world using the new massive biological weapon and the ENTP is the guy who actually designs the weapon, without knowing how will the INTJ use it

    Usually someone who seems like they are seeing into people rather than just their outside, is very friendly in a warm way, and yet seems focused and orderly in a low-key, quiet way. Usually project clarity.

    Not all of them fit this, but it is a typical trend. I usually narrow them down in the space of a minute to ENFx, and they are more low-key than the ENFP, possessing the focus and are more sedate.

    lol

    but seriously, that's not me at all. i'm often exuberant and extra-encouraging of people's intellect around me.
    (on the outside )

    i don't think there's a shortcut. these are all just very person-specific hints that will really get you nowhere. just read 'em all and re-read once you have a better grasp on MBTI.

    Short cut? That seems a bit ironic for someone claiming to be ISTJ, to ask that. The old measure twice tale was probably dubbed by an ISTJ. If you take short cuts, then you will annoy people who have been studying for some time, when you make stupid and sterotypical statements. Besides, you can't read people, since you never know whether they are showing a persona or playing a role. The only way you will know is get to know that person intimately, which most likely will not happen with introverted types. As for anyone picking up on any SJ being concerned about nutrition is nothing impressive, since the majority are.
