    Yeah I'd like to see examples of the kind of testing people have in mind who are saying they do it.

    I think all types have their own ways of learning social behavior. With NTs, this could sometimes resemble testing, while with NFs it could more resemble "feeling people out" and using emotional intelligence.

    ENFP's second function is Fi, Fe isn't one of their main functions.

    I always study other people for knowledge and enjoyment. I do and say certain things to elicit a particular type of reaction and study it.

    I analyse everyone and test them all the time especially my friends. I analyse them consciencly but i never realise that i'm testing them untill after.

    It was a typo, but thanks for pointing it out.

    I like to test my ability to predict human behavior. Where as I sit back and observe and base my observations around the probabilities of future consequences.

    I don't do it when I'm bored. Only when I need data for an anthropological theory, and I always tell them afterwards. I don't see anything inherently wrong with that.


    ENTPs seem to do it often, for their amusement alone.

    I think we all share an interest in human behavior. That's what unites us on this forum.

    Well, I test to learn people are thinking. If people say something, but their words don't match their thoughts. I will have ways to make them spill out the truth unconsciously. Thats usually one way.

    I can't think of anymore, but i am sure there is more in my brain.
