Hi. I can't believe even Socionics aficionados don't know how to type people. So, this thread is another how to type people.
Here's how to type someone.
Let's start with identifying functions. In my reduced Te way, I shall try to put this in the best order that I can, I would need help from my lovely dual, DJ to perfect it for me, but I hope he will be happy with me trying.
1. Look for what the person says about "what could be..." questions. For instance, if you asked me, an Ne valuer and ego block holder, "Maritsa what do you think could happen if (fill in the blank)." Having Ne in my ego block means that I will right away go into all sorts of possibilities and come up with ideas, but that most importantly, I will say, "there are many possibilities" and "here are my ideas."
2. Always consider the possibility that the person who is showing you Ne may actually be demonstrating it, may be activated by it and may hold a role card in it. But that person will not have Ne as their PoLR, ignoring or DS.
3....I have much more, but this is a starter so you try making suggestions.
