    Colour me one of the "whaaaaa??" crowd. Fortunately the link did work and I was able to make it make sense.

    The best you could come up with is consistency? Dude, your skill at arguing a shaky case is pitiful. Are you sure you're INTJ?

    Clearly males and females will mistype as Ts and Fs respectively, due to societal expectations. Although I voted for INFJ, I will never believe that there is a disproportion of S to N since most continue to group all sensing types together, yet make the distinction between Ni/Ne.

    [QUOTE=MacGuffin;23726]Fuckin' Js.


    I agree.


    As you know, I'm a confirmed INTJ woman. Most men are very interested in establishing a friendship with me. Please, please don't think I'm bragging because that's not the intention but I attract them like flies. Now for attracting women friends.........put it this way, I have to adjust my personality when dealing with my women friends. I could be who I am with my male friends and they love it. I guess that's what being an INTJ woman is all about. Most of my male friends say, "I never met a woman like you". I think they are more intrigued than anything. They can have male conversation with me and I'm able to contribute and the conversation is peer to peer. I find this all very interesting.

    I've met one INTJ and am friends with a male INFP and INFJ. I have yet to meet another female INTP in IRL on my own.

    I have to ask, how do you people know that these people are what you claim? Are you asking, and they are telling you, or are you making attempts to read them? I for one never think about reading someone's type, since I know them in a limiting way, know they can be totally the opposite at home and appreciate that we all play roles conducive to our environment.

    At some point, you need to trust your own judgment. If you experience them in a variety of situations (so you know it is not situational behavior you are witnessing... or perhaps you DO note different behavior, which only is more information you can use to read someone), and if you have enough experience and understanding of what you're doing... and if you are constantly adjusting your assessment due to new information and self-correcting ... I think you can draw decent conclusions of type.

    Usually if you are incorrectly identifying a particular type, you'll run across inconsistencies in your typing strategy that will make you adjust your mental model of that type -- which is why I call it a self-correcting assessment.

    So one must always be aware of the possibility that the mental model(s) is off or even incorrect... but also aware that one can develop skill at assessing types accurately. I do not see a need to always be overtly cynical about one's (and everyone else's) typing abilities... just healthily skeptical.

    Most of the ISTPs I know are the stoners.

    I found the book, The Art of SpeedReading People by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger very helpful. After having a 1/2 hour conversation with someone, I can quick size their personality type. The book provides clues as to how to do it. It's really worth reading if you're interested in this kind of stuff.

    Let's face it, a formal education can teach you tons of stuff academically but not too much about people.
