    Lightbulb NF-specific Tips for Type Identification in the Wild?

    Howdy; I was wondering if any of you had some tips for identifying other types (or our own types) in the wild? For example, as an INFP my main function is Fi so I suppose I would try to go off of how other people make me "feel" to try to determine what type they are? Given that the type descriptions and most of what I've read on identifying types does not lend itself to this kind of process, are there any NFs out there with specific suggestions for someone of like mind to help identify how others roll? I would like to hone my type-identifying skills...

    Well, INFJ is very easy to spot. They tend to be extremely abstract in conversation and SOME can run pretty much any subject into the ground (when everybody else finished talking lke 10 minutes ago, they will still be talking about it haha). There is a silent intensity about them externally.

    INFP- quiet, calm, random, spacey, artsy. They have a real nonconformist vibe about them. They also have the same intensity that the INFJ has but its turned inward.

    ENFP- huge people person, all over the place in conversations, usually VERY disorganized, great idea person.

    ENFJ- no real data...

    Compared to what? What is the baseline of observation?

    I would say myself I recognize the N "click" right away from an eye-to-eye perspective. Let me think about this more and I will post back.

    I resent being called oversensitive! (Just joking)
    I prefer emotionally reactive.

    Uh...don't think this is a good indicator. Not all INFJ's are talkers in that way. There's a big gradient when it comes to level of extroversion/talking with INFJ's. You go from ones who speak very little to ones who can talk your ear off. ;-) But abstract subjects, and more generalized words, yes.

    Subjects my INFJ friends and I always talk about or come back to are relationships/psychology/analyzing that stuff, more philosophical/life path/life purpose stuff, sometimes religion, society at large, etc. Substantial psychological/sociological slants to everything. (not saying this is what all INFJ's would talk about though)

    oh ok, thank you for that insight. I was going off my own experience. I only know one other INFJ and that's how we both operate. Most people would confuse me for a big extrovert. So what would a quieter INFJ look like to the outside world? You seem like you would be one; quiet and thoughtful.
