    1. How good at it do you think you are? Have you ever been proven to be wrong? I can't really remember being proven wrong in a specific instance, but I know I have been. I generally think that I'm an excellent typist because the way that I type people is based on vibes and how people affect me. I interact with people of a certain type and sort through how they affect me, and I fine tune how I type people that way. I do this with other typing instruments as well.
    2. What value has it had in your interaction with others? What do you use it for that has practical application?

    It's aided me a great deal. I discovered that the NFs that I know weren't insane and overly emotional; that they couldn't help that. It's just basically explained a lot about what people do and why to me. This is basically a practical tool for me.

    1. How good at it do you think you are? Have you ever been proven to be wrong?
    I'm decent, 50% of the time I'm usually on target. Specifically, I usually try to type temperament first, then try and type the other two letters. People are so multi-faceted, sometimes things can get in the way of typing someone. I have been proven wrong. Some people do not look their type. I have often been mistyped because of this.

    2. What value has it had in your interaction with others? What do you use it for that has practical application?

    I try not to bring it up because it can annoy others. I do use it for practical application at times (maybe to help better communication, understand what wavelength they're on, etc.). Sometimes it has no value, admittedly, and it's only there to burn thinking time.

    I bring it very rarely because as you said, it can annoy people. I just use it and articulate the insights I get, which people seem to appreciate.

    But what can be even more valuable at times is applying it to yourself. Let's say you're giving a sales presentation. It helps to understand you biases and approach, so your don't take the approach of selling to someone like you (unless they are).

    Not very good, in the MBTI/Typology sense, yet I'm great at reading people.

    In fact, reading people is one of my greatest talents, so how's that for irony.

The advantage of more or less "knowing my shit" in this area is that when my mistakes are pointed out to me--or when I spot them--I can self-correct. I can understand how I screwed up and why the "new answer" is the right one.

    2) Some practical value, but not a hell of a lot that I wouldn't pick up on anyway (as an INFP I tend to be pretty perceptive). But to give an example, I was able to counsel/reassure an INTJ friend through her divorce better than I might have otherwise by knowing her type and knowing how her type responds to stress in an unhealthy Se fashion...
    I do not see her as an INTJ. ExTJ is more likely IMO. Although, having not met her in person, it is harder to tell. (It is also possible that compared to me she seems E and S, because I am a very high N type and although I am definitely not a strong I, she is more E than I am.)

    I find MBTI to be very practical.

    im horrible at figuring out ppls types. maybe except for the N/S distinction i think im just decent at.

    its much easier to figure out their motivations for me.

    for some reason, ppl tell me that they think i am hard to figure out. even though I think im as open as a book! its weird!
