I am stumped when it comes to typing a friend of mine. So now I need some methods or ideas to help me troubleshoot the typing process. The problem in this case is that the functions of this person, when it comes to weaknesses and strengths, do not fully or accurately match the type descriptions. If you made a new socionics description for this person it would be a mix of a few different types.
How do you guys go about typing someone? Do you have a specific method? Is there some area(s) you concentrate on, like in trying to define the PoLR or base function for example?
If you wrote a a short and specific step by step guide to typing for someone already familiar with the socionics basics, what would it look like?
What do you do when you have typed someone as accurately as you can, but that type description on wikisocion, Filatova etc. is not very accurate or convincing, but still the best match out of all the type descriptions?
