    Not that I necessarily believe this to be impossible, but just out of curiosity, how do you know you're typing them correctly?

    Sorry, Zhash -- I *tried* to deflect the question, but she would have none of it -- you INTJs are just too wiley...

    (Well, if either of you ARE really INTJs. I could be SO wrong, after all.)

    Though I didn't give it a second thought (and voted otherwise), I agree with those who voted for NFs, because:

    1. Ns are in minority compared to Ss anyway;
    2. Fs are in minority among males anyway.

    After about 30 minutes or so of meaningful conversation I can type most people to 3 out of 4 of their letters. Usually there is one letter I am not sure about and need to get to know the person quite a bit better to distinguish (or sometimes I don't bother and think of them as a hybrid between the two types). If you know the 16 descriptions well, understand the eight functions (Ni, Ne, Ti, Te, etc...), and also personally know people who closely fit each type, then it's actually pretty easy to figure out a person's type. With most people though there is usually one area of ambiguity and you need to get to know them better to figure out that last letter.

    Zhash is finally responding--sorry guys for the delay but I haven't been online much. I have a major construction project going on in my house now and my energy has been focused there.

    The book, "The Art of SpeedReading People" by the Tiegers really teaches you how to do it. If you are at all intuitive, you'll pick up quickly. It's really an art, so to speak. There are clues and you can actually ask people open ended questions to stimulate conversation to get your answers.

    Now, I hope that people don't think that I'm constantly placing people in boxes. That's not at all true as I really enjoy many different types of people (and I don't enjoy many different types of people--if you know what I mean).

    Keep in mind that you must always make a 30% allowance for the way people are socialized in life but I must say that the 70% is usually right on. It's all so fascinating. Get yourself the book, study it and soon you will be an expert, too.

    BTW--It's so much fun.

    I've never gotten acquainted with a male in real life who I thought was INFJ.
