    The dead give away for me is that 3 sentences into any conversation, an NT will begin to jump to an abastraction or theory. For example:

    Sentence #1 "That was a great hit. Go Mets!"

    Sentence # 2: "Yeah. That's his second double tonight. He's got a little pop in his bat."

    Sentence #3: Yeah...Did you know that the difference between a hacker and a hall of famer is 3.5 hits versus 2.5 hits out of 10. Do you think that it is a purely physical phenomenom, as in athletic strength and timing? Or slightly different, as in an innate ability to transcribe the velocity of the ball and change the direction using an opposing force? Or alternatively, is it purely attitudinal: the batter is slightly more successful at striking the ball simply because he beleives he can? What is the effect of belief system on getting base hits consistently? Do you think that could be measured? If you measured it, would you blah, blah, blah."

    Wait till they ask for a hand on the last rep, but make sure that you aren't doing all the work. Otherwise they might as well use a lighter weight.

    (assuming you're talking to me here...), What makes you think ENFP? My type has been difficult to discern, It's likely that I'm ENXP, Ne dominates. Fi is my least preferred function (as far as I can tell, but I don't have as much access to my subconscious as I wish I could have.) I seem to be using Ti somewhat, but There's a chance that I'm actually using tertiary Te and that I'm misdiagnosing my Fi as Fe. I'll look into the differences in detail sometime.

    My name has no meaning btw, I am no where near being a king of despair, I like the words and the images conjured. I don't seem like the ENFPs that I know, but I don't seem to be able to see anything but Ne and an even mixture of F and T (although I score as a T, and with equivalent Ti-Ne in the cognitive tests). {EDIT}: looks like you could have actually just read ENFP instead of ENTP...

    Sorry for hijacking the thread...

In the produce sec they will be the ones who are enjoying the shopping experience the most, almost as if they are there again for the very first time.

    And what juggernaut said.
    What you said scares me a little bit, because I hate shopping, but that post made me realize that I like shopping for produce because I can potentially find perfection incarnate...in an apple.

    NT's. A walking paradox. You know, your type-watching would make for a really interesting thread to read.

    Oh dear.

    And yes, I will stand and ponder the benefits of any uncertain item for minutes at a time. You should see how long I take going over the candy bars at the corner store.

    Which one matches what I'm looking for? What am I looking for, anyway? Does this use real milk chocolate or mockolate? How much does it cost per ounce, compared with this other one? What does this remind me of? Was I going to do something else? What am I doing now? Oh, candy bars. Do I want a candy bar? Will it do me any good? Can I use the money for something else? Maybe I could use the sugar. Am I feeling tired? How can I tell? Would they cost less at another shop? Do I want to go to the effort of looking? What if they cost more? Oh, wait, this is new. Okay, I'll take this.

    This is probably more NTP, but the sort of person you spot in a public place, walking around as though they're not quite sure what they're doing there and where they're going.

    Dark circles is always a good characteristic. Nocturnal brainstorming.

    The females look slightly disheveled, especially INT wummenz.

    The sort of person who'll frown at you when you smile at them and say, "Good morning", or perhaps return the smile with a slightly embarrassed smirk.
    Um, yeah.
