    Default Which PoLR is easiest to spot?

    For me, it's Fe. No other PoLR generates such awkwardness or embarrassing social situations. I'm sure some are good at hiding it, but the totally out-of-place remarks and inappropriate social behavior immediately stand out when I see it. It's not always a bad thing; it's sometimes refreshing, and I usually find it very entertaining, but in a social setting it can be just awful.

    I can't spot Si at all. To me it seems like a pretty trivial PoLR.

    "Waaaa, my room's a mess and I don't want to work out and I'm not sure how I feel!"

    Grow a pair, imo.

    weak Si/strong Si is actually the element (and polr) i spot in other people most easily.

    Si is stupid and being so bent out of shape about it is cute and silly.

    It's been my experience that a person will more easily spot the weakest concious function in another when that particular function is their strongest.

    I spot Se PoLR the strongest. It makes me want to encourage the person to raise their voice at me so that they see I can handle it. So in the future they can openly show as much Se as they want without worrying about seeming too harsh. (this assumes they're actually Se-creatives behaving too politely).

    I do spot Fe PoLR every now and then, but mostly due to their inability to react to my playful comments.

    Ne PoLR never bothered me really. There's this ISTj who never likes to try new food and she hasn't tried some of the most basic things... and we keep convincing her to try some things. It doesn't bother me and she often agrees at the end. But it annoys me how she makes a sour face at ANYTHING new that she tries, including tiramisu and other yummy good things. So I guess what I'm saying is that it's fun to talk Ne PoLR people into new thing, but being so stubborn can cause them to have some annoying traits that will never go away. Otherwise, I barely notice Ne PoLR.

    i think i agree with you on this. with Si/weak sensing (or at least what i generally consider to be such) it's taken place more in the form of having been in cars with ENTps, and having white knuckled it the whole time.

    @loki - i think you can spot your supervisor's strong function as well, but i also think that if your supervisor actually likes you they may not press this too much? maybe similar with mirrors.

    Se polr in LIIs sometimes seems rather glaring. other than that, nothing i can think of.

    Yeah, from my perspective Ne barely counts as a PoLR. All you have to do is explain the situation to them.

    but, i think explaining something or being able to see where an Ne ego is coming from doesn't make an Ne polr able to generate possibilities like the Ne ego. It's still a polr.

    Right, well, doesn't that make sense?
    I'm not really sure which ones stand out.


    Ne porl is really obvious to me because I've dealt with it so much recently. I get into arguments with ISTjs and ISFjs at times because we're looking at the same thing from different perspectives and it can be problematic if there are no intuitive types to facilitate understanding.

    Se polrs do not bother me, to me it is just like the "go ahead", the "green light" for being more protective towards that person.

    - - -
    The most annoying is ENFj's Si polr, IMO, because they need you to actually get angry and visibly reactive, just to sort of prove that they can be "calmed" down.

    I do not have extensive experience with INFp Te polr, but with ISFps, they just sort of have a tendency to ... seem foolish? Childish? I don't know.

    Granted, I can spot , , and PoLRs fairly well, considering I'm and are my ego functions and I like it a lot when people have . However, I think people's PoLRs are easiest to spot in an environment when said information element is abundent otherwise. Therefore, I think that the environment they're in plays the biggest role in a game of "Spot the PoLR."

    That makes sense.

    Ni polrs are kind of annoying in that they need a sort of constant reassurance.
    My experience is the opposite... Ne PoLR's are the ones who seem to need reassurance (or at least assurance), but I'm sure it depends on what kind of reassurance you're offering them.

    The most annoying is ENFj's Si polr, IMO, because they need you to actually get angry and visibly reactive, just to sort of prove that they can be "calmed" down.
    I always assumed that had more to do with Fe and Se than Si?

    Isn't that what he said? How is "Ni polrs are kind of annoying in that they need a sort of constant reassurance." different from "Ni PoLR's are the ones who seem to need reassurance..."?

    yeah, i think this can be how a Se-polr person might view a Se-dom. i was thinking along the lines of the ESTp uncovered vs how an INFj might view this.

    PoLRs will, obviously, most easily annoy me, so I can definitely tell there is a strain between them and me. However, PoLRs are the easiest to spot; the concern (or lack of) for is easily the first thing people see when observing a person.

    Just because I'm a thinking type doesn't mean I'm not an idiot.

    I'd agree. Reason being is that social situations happen all the time, so individuals who partake in this will obviously be shown up to either have grand social skills or poor ones.

    Just disregard what I said there, I don't remember what I was talking about, but I don't think it was Ni polr. It doesn't seem to make sense.

    Well, I think social anxiety can come off as weak Fe.

    Haha, the joys of internet communication. I always use that smilie how XoX described it, but I could see how it could be confusing.
