    Default NF's: How do people feel to you?

    I evaluate people when I meet by how they feel. I don't mean physical touch here by feeling but I mean how they feel emotionally or mentally.

    So, if I can generalize about how people feel by a personality type I would say that, for example

    ISFJ's feel warm and soft, reassuring
    INFP's feel fragile and etheral

    ESFP's feel like pure energy is around them with some warmth

    What do you say of this?
    NF's - Do you also feel other people similar way?

    I tend to look at the individual rather than their MBTI type.
    Different ppl have different effect on me....so its hard to tell.

    I know you asked for NF input but maybe mine will be relevant.. I don't relate at all. Well, the closest I can come to what you describe is "chemistry".... the first time hubby's hand touched my back, it went through me like electricty... but I know that's not what you're after... just the only context I can put it in.

    I do that, too. I don't know if it's an intuitive thing or if I'm closer to the T/F border than I realized. I always get a "feel" for people before I get to know them, and I operate on that general vibe until I figure out who they are individually.

    Maybe I don't understand the question? I was thinking of "feeling"... "warm" for instance... ist that physical or emotional? You clarified it maybe... yes, I do have a "sixth sense" about people but don't relate to those descriptions. Mine would be more trustworthy or not. And, its much harder online... I think I need to see them... or experience them irl.

    I didn’t mean looking at people by MBTI type here (even if I do that sometimes ) but rather identifying MBTI types by how people feel and I have noticed that e.g. ISFJ’s feel very soft and warm, mentally.

    Yes, you understood exactly what I meant! General vibe is a good way to describe that "feeling.

    I'm sorry about poor way of laying out the question. I didn't mean physical feeling, I meant mental or emotional or intuitive meaning which Tallulah there described very well as the General Vibe. Most of people feel like regular people so there is nothing special there but some people give me really strong vibes like this one man in my workplace. I literally got shivers down my spine when I first met him.

    It depends on the individual. Its one of those things I can't explain though... its impossible to describe it.

    *agrees with other NFs* I "feel" individuals... and using that I might be able to generalize... although I can't say I know patterns will appear.

    Let's see... It's like I have a mental representation of people... I feel them by poking at that representation. It changes overtime.

    The usually two categories I look at first is "stiff/hard vs soft/fuzzy"... Then there's all the other little details that just comes to you.

    In general I find INTJs to be "inwardly intense" focused energy... some of them have that spilling out and make people back away.

    Other than that I don't think I've noticed any gross patterns in types.

    I do kinda feel people, but more like they have a colour (except no actual colours pop into my head, it's just the overall feeling... does that make sense?)
