    I imagine that SolitaryWalker sits at his computer with curlers in his hair in a pink bathrobe feeling superior to people on this site for using folk typology, and imagining it works because we can't see him.

I don't know why he assumed that if a person is jovial, upbeat and attention seeking, he must be an ENFP; but nonetheless, this is what he did.
    You wrote Principles of Typology? It's in front of me at this very moment. I'm reading it right now. Exceptional book!!! Really, really good. Wow.

    I used to make the mistake of under attributing ESFJ and ENFP. They are A LOT more common then I previously thought. Giving people the tests and then talking with them about it has opened my eyes!

    As soon as I figured out that male ESFJs dont come off as homemakers I was much more able to type them. As soon as I realized that ESFJ females actually party as hard as the ESFP females, I once again stopped under typing them.

    The people that usaully end up testing ENFP, I almost always think of as some sick conglomeration of ISFP and ESTP --> ridiculous scheming that made me think "ESTP salesman" and the chillax care not about tommorow made me think "ISFP"...I finally got over this though. After accepting the low energy nature of a lot of ENXPs, I've stopped under typing them.

    Yup, I've noticed how male FJs often come across as TJs.

    It's not half as bad as this nonsense you wrote about "deplorable" SJs:

    So to humor your Si a bit, I didnt get my facts straight, I have made contact with at least on S that I can regard as something other than deplorable through and through.
    Anyone who would write comments like that has no business even dealing with typology, much less writing a book on the subject.
    The prejudice is palpable.

    I've found the "best" [if there is such a thing] way to type people quickly is to use Keirsey's abstract/concrete and utilitarian/cooperative dichotomies in language and disposition. Things like "he likes science" or "she likes to dance and write poetry" for me have always been really shitty methods that I've had to shake, since the newcomer can get confused easily.

    However, it still won't be perfect because people have the advantage of knowing their own mental processes over you, so all you're seeing is the exhibited behavior and not necessarily the subconscious cognitive tendencies that lead to it.

    People can barely type themselves, typing others without extensive personal knowledge can be pretty much impossible.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that I'm wrong about myself.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Hmm...

    I would not jump to conclusions without reading it. I'm not finished yet, but there is some quite good material which provides substantial insight.

    You can preview some of it online. I read some of it online here first.

    Principles of Typology - Google Books

    Then I read the Amazon.com reviews here:

    Amazon.com: Principles of Typology (9781438927145): Aleksey Bashtavenko: Books

    Definitely worth the money.
