    NF's, and yes- women.
    (I think male NF's seem just as good as female NF's at this- they are just rarer.)

    Oh my goodness, this lines up so weird on the ispy feed. The "NF's" are lined up one under the other .

    I think all NF types have this as a gift and a curse regardless of sex. I have scared some friends with how accurate I pick up on what they are thinking and saying... and they don't even need to be in the same state as me.

    But NT types can also be very good at this once they get to know you. My last two LTR (ENTP and INTJ) were both excellent at picking up on when I was upset. They just arrive to this conclusion from a different train than what I would.

    I don't have too many SP or SJ friends so I can't make any conjectures on them.

This is even worse when its a boss because their knowledge of (or even presumptions about) your inner thoughts and feelings can make working with them difficult, if not a threat to your job security.

    Hey, I can read people fairly well but at least I have the decency to feign ignorance.
    Hmm, that's really interesting. I hadn't really considered that other people were able to read me, but just had the tact not to say anything. That's probably very true.

    I had a strange thing like OP, but it wasn't feelings.. it was verbage. I was chatting with this guy on a bus by university.. and we talked about social programs (at the time I was going to school for social work) and at the very end he asked me where I worked. I asked him why, and he said that he thought I probably worked in mortgages. (I did!) but we hadn't discussed anything financial or anything about my job. I was baffled! I asked him why he thought that, and he said he could tell by my verbage, but it still floored me, because I couldn't recall any financial terms being used in the conversation. What ever type that guy was... he was incredible at reading me.

Then I said something like, "Uh...yeah...I mean, it's not my dream job, but..." Then the next day she said (as if I had been complaining to her or something, which I hadn't). "I know this isn't your dream job but you get paid really well, and blah, blah, blah." She started naming all the reasons I should be glad to work there.

    Then sometimes she'd call me into her office and give me a pile of things to work on, and she'd constantly say things like, "I know you're anxious to run away, but I have a few more things to give you; we're not done yet." And she was right, I was anxious to get away from her.

    There were a few other times too where I thought, she just read my mind, but I can't remember specifically what she said. I was very mellow and inexpressive around her, so there was no real reason for her to think I was feeling frantic and stressed - even though I was. She picked up on it somehow.

    She was one of those people who was kind of obsessed with pleasing people, so maybe her fear of being disliked or displeasing is what made her assume that my emotional aloofness was a reaction to her and the job. And maybe she was being her own self-fulfilling prophecy because I didn't like her due to her micro-managing and obsessiveness over every minute detail. She was especially vigilant about pleasing anyone above her at work. I think that's why she was so good at reading people because she was constantly paying attention to how people reacted to her so she could try to "fix" any displeasure they might have.

    I mean one time she had me call this restaurant like 3 or 4 times to try and get an outside table for the president of the company who had a lunch appointment there. The restaurant kept saying there wasn't one available but she wouldn't give up. And apparently another time there were a bunch of fires along the coast (the office was in Malibu, California) and so no one went to work because the main roads were closed off but the president of the company told her to find a random back road and still come into work that day (despite the danger) and she did.
    I dunno, maybe I'm misinterpreting but I can picture most people reading you correctly in these two situations and just not saying anything (it's often very easy to see when someone doesn't like a job or doesn't like someone -and it's rarely a good idea to say anything!)

    Especially the first example, I mean you outright told her that you hated the job with your response to a small-talk kind of question. She didn't have to read anything at all for that situation.

    Uncertain about your ex boss but the man in the elevator sounds like a Se dom or aux.

    As far as type goes, I think it can be about what the person is reading about (body language, "vibes", etc).
    Se-dom are supposed to be good at reading people (that's why they are the stereotypical salespeople).
    Fi-dom are supposed to be good at picking up on internal emotions/feelings.

    I could go on..... I can see all the P functions having their strengths in being aware of certain info & the F functions for evaluating the emotional side of things, so I'd say Te & Ti are probably the most dense (but that's just a generalization based on theory).

    Of course, individuals of these types may be crappy at reading people, but if an individual does read people well, then they may have a "method" related to their type.

    Also, I think people read others well when they think somewhat like they do. I mean, it's easier to read someone if you can identify with them. So people may feel their own type reads them well... I know I usually can pick up on what Fi-dom feel pretty easily. I've certainly been fooled by an ESTP though.

    My father is an ENTP, and I am an ENFP... We both accuse each other of being better at reading people, lol

    I didn't tell her I hated the job. I actually said, yeah I like it, it's just not my dream job. And she wasn't just making small talk 'cause she asked me several times and looked concerned. I think the reason I assume most people can't read me is because even some of my best friends can't tell when I'm upset or hurt. Even if I drop hints. With my ex-boss I was just very aloof, but I tend to think shy people don't like me because they often act so indifferent and serious, so it makes sense that she might interpret things the same way with me.
