    Default A new and easy way to type others.

    Step 1: determine the person's dominant function attitude and orientation.

    Pe(EPs)-Adventurous seekers of novel information
    Pi(IJs)-reluctant to seek new information and more of a reflector
    Je(EJs)-closure seeker
    Ji(IPs)- adaptable and avoidant of closure.

    If you can't figure out what the person is dominantly, try finding their opposite function (Je is opposite of Ji and Pe is opposite of Pi, etc)

    Step 2: figure out the person's attitude towards directing others.

    Directive(NJ, and ST): prefer to take control whether it be because they believe it is their responsibility, or because they just prefer being direct rather than informative language

    Informative(NP and SF): prefer to try to sooth or convince others instead of directly order them either because they believe everyone is unique, or because they believe that it is considerate to do so.

    Step 3: determine the person's attitude towards making decisions

    Pragmatic(SPs and NTs): prefer to make decisions independent of opinion or law.
    Affiliative(NFs and SJs): prefer to make decisions using some sort of agreement, whether it be a rule or a concern for another person.

    If you're having trouble determining the difference, use the letters that you are 100% sure of to make it easier to decide on one's non letter preferences. Also, use what you know about the the person's type to determine the difference between the two similar types. Ex: if the person shows Ji, pragmatic, and informative traits, but the person seems more logical and intellectual, the person is INTP, not ISFP.

    And finally, the types and their non-letter preferences.
    ESTJ-Je,Affiliative, directive
    ESFJ- Je, affiliative, informative
    ISTJ-Pi, affiliative, directive
    ISFJ- Pi, affiliative, informative
    ESTP-Pe, pragmatic, directive
    ISTP-Ji, pragmatic, directive
    ESFP-Pe, pragmatic, informative
    ISFP- Ji, pragmatic, informative
    ENTP-Pe, pragmatic, informative
    INTP-Ji, pragmatic, informative
    INTJ-Pi, pragmatic, directive
    ENTJ-Je, pragmatic, directive
    ENFP-Pe, affiliative, informative
    INFP-Ji, affiliative, informative
    ENFJ- Je, affiliative, directive
    INFJ-Pi, affiliative, directive

    My type is ESTP according to this formula.

    I dont think much of this is correct. For example INJs are not reluctant to seek new information, quite the opposite..

    I agree with INTP above. I don't think this is great tbh. I feel like some descriptions are too broad or too assumptive.

    Well then I guess I need another description for Pi. Got any ideas?

    Ji(IPs)- adaptable and avoidant of closure.
    Addendum: Je makes judments of values (read: "values" can be either logical or ethical judgments) based on what is visible in its environment to protect one's internal state of "existence" as defined by Pi; Ji makes value judgments internally, independent of the environment, but a person's well-being and approach to life are variable depending on the environment as defined by Pe. If you wish to determine a person's temperament, a good first step would be to determine whether they "flow" through life by the ropes of an external system (Je; as an example, ENFJs pleasing others and maintaining stability by forming relationships; ESTJs finding a niche within external structures of work and tasks), or Ji (the person's values, however or not apparent, do not seem particularly linked to the views of others).
