I need some help trying to find ways to identify NT's in public/school/work etc.
I'm really sick of all my sensor friends, there too S and in the here and now and i need to make an NT friend somehow. Can anyone supply some tips?

Spotting them is difficult. I'm an INTP studying mechanical engineering and I only 1 other NT.
The tell tale sighs are:
Over-theorization (spelling?) of principals both complex and simple
Often times an unkept appearance, especially if your looking on an engineering quadrangle
Laughing to ones self, possibly resulting in odd stares from other non NTs
An interest in nerdy things
I give off the impression of being an extrovert with a theoretical mind so most people don't know I'm a classic INTP unless they know me well. It can be hard to find because as I'm sure you know we can sequester ourselves well.
I say instead of looking for specifically NTs, search for intelligent people who enjoy a good conversation. It's always nice to engage in an argument with an S or F who can actually think critically, as hard to find as they are............oops
