It actually came about because of the Ask an ESTJ thread. I found that several types discovered things about relating to each other in the course of discussing misunderstandings/puzzlements about ESTJ behaviour. Both the ST and NTs came away with a better understanding of NFs and I know I learned a lot about STJs and T thought processes and perceptions generally.
I seem to have a lot of SJ friends and know that some things I do while teaching would drive them nuts. (I hate being limited to sticking with all the details of an outline from the beginning of the year, as long as the topics are being covered and I'm not springing huge surprises on them).
I find that I just don't have a lot of common ground with many SPs, even though they're fun, and wonder how I may contribute to it being difficult for us to relate.
I have learned some things from watching my ESTJ boyfriend at the time about approaching people first and imposing yourself on others in a friendly way that have helped me to be less supersensitive to the possibility of bothering people and people have responded warmly.
SP types need more hands-on activities in school and need to understand how they are going to use whatever we're learning. I'm teaching French this year in an area where there is less practical need for it in getting a job and some kids come in with very negative attitudes.
I'm figuring how best to help them see where the payoff could be for them.
I know that NTs need more chances for independent learning than school settings often afford.* There are several NT kids I know failing highschool because they have not found a teacher that really "gets" them and because they are not very engaged in the subject matter.
Each type perceives any particular action differently and am curious how their perception of INFJ behaviour varies according to type. I also would like to continue becoming a better and more effective friend or potential SO as time goes on.
