    Default Forum members who's type you would guess wrong unless they told it themselves

    I'm interested of mistyping. Don't we often find ourselves asking each other whether they typed someone correctly? We're getting reminded then that anyone can occasionally act a certain way. That's not very helpful from typing perspective tho.

    I think it would be helpful to share what kind of impressions we've got from people, to get an idea of the kind of errors we make. Knowing the errors, we may attempt to avoid them, and increase the accuracy of our type guesses.

    Don't list people you don't like, and don't use this form of commentary to get back at anyone. I'll compile my list of people shortly and post my "mistypings"..

    Hm, actually I'll want some feedback whether this is a good topic at all, or if this has too much potential to offend people. I'm thinking that every person has some types in their mind they wouldn't wanna be associated with.. even such types they might me mistaken for.

    Saying that, my forum type appearance is free for everyone to evaluate :P I'm most likely an ENTP, tho other types has been suggested too.

    Updated!
    an INTP, whom I (would)'ve mistaken as INFP Jennifer
    an INFJ, mistaken as INTJ Athenian 200
    an ISFJ, mistaken as INFJ (I've forgot )
    an ISTP, mistaken as INTP Sass...quatch
    an ENTJ, mistaken as ENTP FDG
    an ENFP, mistaken as INFP Targo
    an ENTP, mistaken as INTP Liquid_laser

    I'm thinking of several people whom I've misdiagnosed more than 2 letters, but I'm too conscious of their type (and too unconscious of my initial diagnosis) to state them out loud.

    Most people have their types in their information, visible to all, so I usually don't bother to think of them as any other type.

    However there is an INFJ who I thought was probably an INTJ for a while, and an INTP who I momentarily thought was an ESFJ.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    There is:

    An INTP who I would have thought to be INFx.

    An INFJ I guessed to be INFP.

    An INTJ I guessed to be INFJ.

    An ENFJ I guessed to be INFJ.

    An INFJ I guessed to be ISFJ.

    my two-letter wrongs are
    ISFJ vaguely thought of as INFP,
    ISTP bearing a striking resemblance to an INTJ (in my mind) ..
    ENTJ who appeared as INTP to me

    and even one I've guessed 3 letters off.. and one with 4 letters off, tho I'm not sure what to think about it.

    There's a few people (Jennifer, Nopareil (spelling?), Sandy) who would not have stood out as a particular type. There are also a few where I might have guessed, but only down to 2-3 letters or so.

    This thread is kinda useless if nobody names names.

    Zerg named my name!

    But yes, this was hilarious: A thread about typing people who are mistyped, without trying to mention who the people who are mistyped are.

    (It's like trying to count the number of apples in a bag, without ever opening the bag.)
