    Me too. It's nice when you're all cold and icy to come back to a nice warm fire

    Okay so sometimes there's an errant flame but that's half the fun ain't it?

    Is there any guide to accurately type people in real life (and in real-time) ?? Because I see a lot of you talking about your "ESTP" friends or your "INFJ" co-worker and the only people whose type I know are the handful of people I know in real life, who took the test.


    How do you do it? Is it just guessing? (i.e. this guy procrastinates like there is no tomorrow ergo he's a P) I/E and J/P might be easier but what about S/N and F/T?

    Most people are just guessing,
    though some might have had profiles done at work or something.
    For the most part though, I assume people are guessing.
    I have an INFP sister who is convinced she can accurately guess people's types by looking at their photograph.
    But MY question is: how do you know?!
    Her claims are not falsifiable, yet she behaves as though she is 100% accurate.
    (It's a little irritating.)

    Socionics claim that.

    Bad practice there my friend. If you try to decide letter by letter it's a lot harder and filled with risk. NF, NT, SP and SJ are usually the first to be decided upon. After that it's more a question of knowing the type as a whole. For example I have a friend who I thought couldn't possibly be an ENFP but he was actually tested as one repeatedly. He's quite and a little asocial... however his cupboards are jammed with just junk, oddly his room is sparsly furnished though, and his PC has vast quantities of ecclectic music and photos on it yet he's obsessed with optimum setup. As such it's not that he's loud and insists that you love him or kill him but more that he reminds me of my other ENFP friend in his hidden behaviour.

    Personally I type by tick box. Whichever type you manage to tick the most criteria for is my first guess on which type you are.

    Of course I keep changing the criteria just to keep people guessing

    I see. And what criteria do you use? What is your "bible", if you will. Because if I'm looking at something, say, an ENFP trait, like "charisma" - there are numerous types who are supposed to be charismatic (most E's ?).

    Ooo bad question... I get complained at cause my checklist for ENFPs is kind of trying to compare them to role models like Scrat and Tiggr

    ENFPs knacker me out, are usually enthusiastic for romance and such, tend to party hard and can drink a lot... can be concerned with physique but never really end up with a regimen so to speak. Of the three that I know all have an area of interest (well usually more than one) which recieves more than what would be considered perhaps sensible amount of time and money devoted to it. One of these hobbies is almost always socialising.

    Oh and I tend to find with ENFPs that you can hurt them in an instant but if you try and cheer them up then they use their critical thinking to try and analyse why you are saying what you are.

    Dude, retract the claws and you'll be able to wrestle without anyone actually getting hurt! All that practice and it hasn't taught you anything yet huh?
