    Default Easiest types to spot?

    I was wondering what types people found easiest to notice in everyday life. Why do you think those types are simple for you to figure out? What aspects of that type, in your opinion, stand out to help you with your evaluation? I'd rather get responses in general terms but Socionic lingo isn't unwelcome. ILI, SLI, and EIE(and sometimes ESE) are probably the easiest for me, followed by LII and IEE. I think those types, with the exception of EIE, stand out to me more than others because I was around them the most growing up. SEIs and IEIs can be easier for me to decide on as well, so this leads me to think that Fe plays a pivotal role in my 'easy types'. I'll elaborate later(typing is tedious on my phone) but I at least wanted to get this thread started.

    For me, LSI. I think supervisee is easy to spot in general.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    After posting I was curious whether anybody would interpret my question this way. I definitely see what you're saying by this, but I was referring to "easy" in the sense that EyeSeeCold mentioned. In my opinion figuring out somebody's type is a skill and, just as with any other skill a person practices, the more we practice the skill the better we become(leading to relative ease of typing). Of course, since we're all human, caution must be taken so we don't end up blurting, "so-and-so is this type" within the first five minutes of meeting them. Even after I spot my "easy" types, I put the first guess aside until further observation/interaction confirms and reaffirms it.

    IEI, SLE, EIE, LII are the easiest, then LSE, ESE, LIE, EII, ILI
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I think having close experience with certain types makes it the easiest.

    For me it's ILE, ESE, SLE, SLI, IEI, EIE

    I've always had big trouble spotting gammas, especially ENTjs. Riddy put it best that gammas sort of "hide in plain sight:" they're always there, but their presence doesn't jump out at me.

    In socionics: NFs.

    In Enneagram: 5s and 7s. They stick out like neon lights to me because they are so polarized in contrast to the surrounding people.

    Extraverted ST types will tend to pick up on things/qualities about others they can see, which they use to compare and contrast to other; while introverted ST types develop a more subjective framework, their own structure of what they see that might not correspond with objective reality.

    My type looks quiet, expressionless, plain. The extraverted ENFj looks and dresses very elegantly but never out of time; because they are very well in touch with time, not their own sensation from clothes, they can pick out articles of clothing that they can wear for a very long time.

    LSE look tense, stressed, always need to get some where. Directive in motion. Try taking up their time, or wonder off course when you're in a relationship with them and watch them say, "we have to walk to the movies, it starts at 11." Always on plan.

    That depends a bit on the setting but in general...yeah, I can see what you mean.

    Some users said which TYPES or DICHOTOMIES are easier to spot

    Some users said which INTERTYPE are easier to spot

    I find it easiest to spot couples of types with the intertype relation. Then I have even more information to go with. I sometimes spot best friends or couples on the bus and their types are often very obvious. For example I saw these LSE-IEE activator-friends talking to each other on the bus the other day. Don't know them, didn't talk to them. The other day on the bus stop there was this woman, she gave a sensual impression, she was looking at the time table, and touching it sensually with her fingers. Could be IEI, there was also the general impression of her that was IEI, then I saw her husband, sitting beside her waiting, very much LSI. Case closed!

    LSE have this very defiant and adversarial stance or gesture they make a lot which is they cross their arms and they are likely to do this just about any time.

    It seems, for the most part, that identicals and conflictors are among the easiest types to identify. Conflictors can be easy for me to notice when they 'get in my face', so to speak. However, since I have a tendency to be immersed in my thoughts and ignore my environment, their contrasting nature isn't always noticed immediately.

    @1981slater, I was personally wondering whether people's answers and typing methods had any correlation with the system of typology they used most heavily(Socionics, Enneagram, etc). Mere speculation on my end, though.

    Thanks to everyone for contributing to the discussion.

    i usually tell people who are undecided on their type to look for Supervisors, Duals or Conflictors since it is these types that one tends to have a strong, visceral reaction towards.

    identical is generally too numb and uneventful a relation to be really telling. semi-dual is too ambiguous.

    The only type I can sometimes spot immediately is SLE. The more interaction with people the easier it becomes to see the nuances of that types behaviour in others.

    LSE's because they struggle to laugh at things that aren't funny due to their role.

    I think I am good at spotting sexually agressive women (SLE, LSI, SEE and ESI) This is because I want to be their victim! ESI's are so shimmeringly awesome, LSI's deserve endless devotion. SLE's need my xxx .

    What do you mean?

    How do you, as a fellow victim, approach the aggressor? I would suppose with stoic dignity at first, and with reciprocation, the advance would continue. However, she will need to strongly clarify her interest. She must be demanding of attention, or else the reserved charm of a male "victim" will likely recede. The male "victim" needs an element of uncertainty, but prefers the uncertainty to be playful and illusionary - she will need to hammer down and define her interest. I am correct on this? Right?
