    Default Communication with the various types

    N's: Use far-fetched analogies and vague hand movements to demonstrate what you're talking about. They will get you.

    NT's: Be direct, to the point, and utilize the above guideline. Tact is of less importance with them than with other types

    SJ's: Be direct and to the point, but tactful too. If you lack the tact(especially in FSJ's), they will likely take your statement/question as rhetoric and miss the point completely.

    SFP's: Try and be friendly. If your point doesn't sink in the first time you say something, rephrase it and repeat it until it does. It isn't stupidity or a hearing problem, but likely just inherent ADD tendencies. Praise is very effective on them as well.

    NF's are covered by N, but you missed STPs.

    Does that mean we're impossible to communicate with?

    Yes. Yes it does. Go back to cleaning your gun.

    .
    State the facts and keep it brief. There's nothing my SJ boyfriend and father hate more than wordy stories using metaphors to illustrate a point. They just want the damn point, haha. Also, keep in mind that they probably heard what you said the first time so repeating the same thing worded differently over and over again just aggravates them (and occasionally makes your point less valid). Believe me, I am known as the repeater by the SJs in my life.

    Also, don't always expect a quick resolution. It took me a while not to take this personally, but both my boyfriend and father kind of put people through a test period after they've done something wrong or something they thought was out of line. It took a lot for me to realize that it's Si's judgement based on experience and NOT a form of punishment.
