    Default The Best Bullshit Detector

    Which NT type has the best bullshit detector?

    By bullshit, I mean any type of deceit. Be it lying, being fake, telling half-truths, leading people on, pretending to be something or someone you are not, secret motives, whatever. Just has to be a form of deceit.

    I am thinking ENTJ.

    Te seems to be the function that would be most constantly vetting the things going on around the ENTJ, checking facts, going over things in their thoughts. I think ENTP, with Ne, would be extremely strong as well, but they might too often take things people tell them at face value because they so often have a rationale for why something can be the way it was said to be. INTP and INTJ don't see outwardly focused enough to vet people for bullshit. I feel like they would go, "Oh, okay," and then go back to their thoughts.

    But all NT types, are probably MUCH stronger at detecting bullshit than other MBTI types.

    I think perceptive Fs would be better bullshit detectors (the exception being the Fs who don't understand that Ts can be different from them and genuinely not have deep feelings or empathy in certain situations, and thus impose ways of being onto people different from them).

    I don't know, but I am a perfect bullshit detector and I am an ENTJ.
    I have never met anyone better than myself at detecting insincerity or lying in general. I am just skeptical by nature and see RIGHT through it.

    I cannot stand when girls flirt with me either. It is a pro in formal matters, but a con in social interaction.

    People don't have to call the bullshit out in order to recognize it as such.

    You F's are the biggest bullshitters of all. Feelings just scream insincerity.

    Both my bullshit detector and my The-Guy-I'm-Quoting-Is-Going-To-Get-Pissed-Off-At-This detector are blinking.

    I'd give it to NFJ's they can see through the crap as well.

    It's our curse and our blessing.
