    so how do you use the typings you don't really believe in? in other words the typings which were not results of the process you described. can they be relied upon in any way?

    No. If MBTI is self report, then if an INTP reported they were ESFP should we all accept that?

    How the hell would we know they were INTP and not ESFP?

    Writing style, what they say about themselves, how they say it, how they approach an issue, etc.

    There are ways.

    I don't know about you, but I don't go around pretending to have some sort of epistemological authority regarding the inner workings of other people.

    It's called being able to read someone and see past the obvious.

    I mean, this stuff isn't "objective" anyway until these functions are "proven" to exist.

    Like any good model builder, I should point out that MBTI needs to be refined until it can be properly validated against reality; it so far fails on this front. I'll also add the standard caveat that that doesn't mean that it's not useful..

    My comment was intended to illustrate that it seems strange to ask what makes a person good at typing other people.

    All of these clarifications you keep making, such as your statement about the "sports" question, are things that most everyone here already knows. Everyone "knows" that they are good at typing. They have just as much "authority" as you do and everyone somehow draws different conclusions.

    And your name is yellow, so, whoops
