    Course, with Gen Xers, that happened around age 10, so we're really hard to type.
    Hah! Ain't that the truth!
    “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.”

    Male ESTPs are easy to spot.

    Same with male ENTPs. Just look for someone who's acting like an ESTP, but wears glasses and has involved some sort of an electronic gadget into his actions/conversation.

    Female ISFJs are super easy.

    Non-stereotypical gender-type matches are hard, though.

    I don't know how accurate I am, because I've never had someone take the test after I guessed their type (only before).

    I find that I have the most ease/feel more confident identifying XNFPs, XNFJs and XNTJs, but I could be totally bullshitting, I have no idea.

    Also I'm very uncertain of my ability to tell N vs. S unless the person happens to fit strongly into a type I know reasonably well (ie ISTP, INFJ). And even then it's all very fuzzy.

    Lol! That describes my previous ENTP boss to a tee! And he always had to have the latest and greatest. "Give me the Cadillac" was a common expression of his. I'll have to keep a look out for the clue.

    In my experience, I'm fairly poor at identifying them. I, too, have a problem with discerning ESTPs/ENTPs.

    As a result of my serious introversion, I don't know enough people in person to get a proper picture, but I do know that my type is pretty hard to identify.

    You know, when I first started trying to match people to their types, I would make mistakes all the time. I mistyped several coworkers pretty badly. The biggest problem was that I didn't have much experience, and would jump to conclusions.

    I think a good way to type a person is to start with the temperament -- SJ, SP, NF or NT -- then go through descriptions of each of the types to find what you think is the best match. Some people are more difficult than others.

    It should be pretty easy to spot the difference between an ENTP and an ESTP. Each type's way of receiving information from the world, N and S, is very pronounced.

    You a mind reader, how does one see how someone else receives information?

    You have to guess based on what they do with the information.
