    Default how do you guys type people??

    do you have a particular method you use or do you just kind of go by impressions? do you use the same strategy for everyone or do you change it up based on who it is you're typing? what's the most important thing to identify when attempting to figure out someone's type?

    i want to get better at doing this so if anyone could give me any pointers i would really appreciate it! thanks :-)

    I mostly go by functions and their positions. What appears to be the person's base function? Their PoLR? etc.

    For beginners:
    1.) Jungian dichotomies
    2.) type descriptions

    For advanced socionists:
    3.) strongest functions
    4.) intertype relations
    5.) quadras, clubs, temperaments
    6.) 64 DCNH subtypes

    For experts:
    7.) Visual Identification
    8.) 15 type dichotomies
    9.) 8 functions of model A
    10.) 256 subtypes

    I just go by feel and random impressions that come from my subconsious.

    This, for me.

    What functions they seem to express, how I seem to interact with them, temperament and quadra values. I don't get as far as sub-type.

    Visual typing based on temperament and what that means for how they hold and move their body and stuff, and their energy levels. I narrow it down to club by interview if it just hasn't sprung out to me that they're a particular type after I've narrowed it down with temperament.

    I think each type has a certain look/feel. LIEs and LSEs are very distinctive, for example, as is Fe dominance.

    Of course this can lead to tricky cases where I don't know someone enough to fire a good type interview but know them too well to a degree where I overthink little things that throw my typing off. Also DCNH subtypes can screw with temperament diagnosis. Cultural/social aspects can also mess with club... etc.

    Everybody types differently. That's why everyone's always wrong in the other person's eyes.

    The longer and more attention to socionics you give, the easier it will be to type people. With experience you will notice patterns, and you will learn to attribute those patterns into a dichotomy.

    Sounds like experts don't even conform to socionics

    I type functions valued or used only. Descriptions are impossible to type with and in my experience dichotomies can generally be manipulated by you to meet whatever type parameters you want to set for a person.

    I generally go by impressions... and leave most people I meet untyped, since the impressions aren't strong enough.

    Impressions, noticing the little things people do. And intertype relations.

    I generally ask Brilliand's opinion, then find out he doesn't have one and type them myself.

    It depends on the individual, really. Some people show more obvious signs of being, say, an Extrovert, Fe, Se, rationality/irrationality, etc; some show very upfront qualities of their type, others less so.
    From there on it's more about how much I actually know about this person, have observed them and how they interact with others or/and myself
