    Didn't take that into consideration, actually. When I have to open up to somebody, I can come off as insincere even if I am sincere.

    Good eye.

She tends to trust people who give off a trustworthy vibe, while I trust people when they act consistently. So our bullshit detectors tend to go off in different kinds of situations.
    I agree.

    For me, I can very easily detect bullshit. I can see through people fairly easily, and I can also read between the lines. It's not like me to call someone on their bullshit though. I'd prefer to find out why they're bullshitting at all, so I let it persist and start digging for answers.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Actually, it wasn't meant to be funny. This is a thread for who's the best bullshit detectors, and you're full of it.

    Just don't be stereotypical, and I'm fine with you.

    Don't you think that J's are better bullshit detectors though because we connect the dots? I'm not sure what it's like to be a P so I could be wrong.

    I only view the latter as the bullshit factor skill--the former, sure, NTs do it easily, myself included, but anyone could do this if they focused their attention on it.

    Whereas the NF skill... it has an unlearnable factor.

    Yeah, and they detect it in completely different ways too.

    As an ENTP, for me to figure out if someone is full of bullshit or not, I have to converse with them. If I can hear from them what they think, and why they think it, I can quickly piece together their logic in a way that allows me to know if they are full of bullshit or not.

    I would assume that an ENTJ does it by how a person carries themselves, or his/her actions.

    An NFJ can probably tell if a person is full of it by watching their facial expressions from across the room.

    I apologize for whatever I may have done. Not worth the conflict.
    I tend to get super pissed over forum arguments

    To YoungGun: Yup.

    I love those who are full of it and openly admit it. Like a bunch of my ENTP friends.
