    Default Most difficult type to diagnose?

    I heard it is ENxP...is this true in your experience?


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    "Diagnosing" a type, lol. Love it.

    I think it depends on how much experience you have with particular types. It's not terribly hard for me to type people who are the same types as other people I know. But I have a hard time typing people who aren't. For example I'm pretty bad at typing SPs, for the most part.

    Also I think it's hard to type female Thinkers and male Feelers, because oftentimes they're socialized to behave the opposite way.

    This. They're socialized to behave the opposite, and I think just express themselves differently.

    I either suck at recognizing SP types, or I just really don't know any.

    One of the things I think "Lean In" by Sheryl Sandberg describes very well, is the way that women often subconsciously notice what the consequences are for behaving in a stereotypically masculine way -- so they learn to "play the game" and get the same results with a more collaborative, diplomatic, humble, "feminine", and nonthreatening style. TBH I think some of the most obvious Thinkers, among women I know, are the ones who refuse, on principle, to "play the game" as much as their female peers.

    (Edit: Plenty of Feeler women do the same thing w/r to "refusing to play the game" -- but the "game" I'm thinking of has a lot to do with dealing with people's feelings 24/7. Hard to explain.)

    Interesting. I've never read that, but I think this is probably why a lot of people think I am a Thinker, rather than a Feeler. I talk about it quite a bit in my MBTI video.


    I have exactly the same problem.
    I must just avoid the SP crowd. They have to exist!
