    Default Types as litmus tests

    I noticed that each type can be used to measure something with fine precision. For examples ENTJ's would be best at measuring Se in someone else. ENTP's someones Fe. So if you want someone to give you a very accurate measurement of something u know who to ask.

    hmm

    ESTps and ESFps are certainly the easiest for me to spot. I don't really have to put any thought into it or spend long observing them. I kinda figured Se is the easiest function to spot for any type... perhaps it's easier for ENTjs though?

    I think I'm pretty good at spotting or something, because i get this little tingly feeling whenever someone uses it.

    INFp are the easiest for me to spot. The only type I can spot, instantly, just by looking at them.

    is easiest to spot for anyone in its crude, obvious, in-your-face form, as in "shut up, we're doing it my way because I'm the boss".

    It's less easy to spot when it disguises itself as or .

    slava - i thought about this, too. my idea was kind of more negative, that people spot their superegos or their polr in other people. i think maybe that you can spot any function you have conscious control over. like the new INFj said she felt uncomfortable around people with a very dominating physical presence. i read (somewhere) that people are almost weirdly attracted to their superego because they do something VERY well that you aren't confident in yourself. like say, ENTj/ESFj. i would want to say that ENTjs/INTps would probably kind of suck at spotting and could mistake it for damned near anything, hence the need of a dual who is confident in . but i suppose they'd be great at spotting .

    Optimistic. He quickly reacts to everything that brings emotions, especially positive. He is as if preprogrammed for rising spirits of his dual (The Conservator) who always looks somewhat scared or angry. He permanently irradiates friendliness, positive emotions, and smiles. He tries to make his partner laugh, shakes and hassles her in all possible ways, until she finally reacts, either positively or negatively, otherwise he will not have information about his condition (of course, in this sentence HE and SHE pronouns may be used vice versa). He likes to relate and to discuss what he has read and heard. It is easy for him to start up a conversation with a person he has never been familiar with.
    makes sense to me. hence you have no idea why you are attracted to your superego or your activity/dual partner, but you know it works.

    ENTj's are the ones that say that things are weak, when they do not like it. When ENTj's accept something they say, I would buy that. And ENTp's say that things are low class. Ti people call people useless when they cannot perform functions, Te people call people worthless when they do no have a function. This shows how Ti wants to build organizations based on usefulness, and Te wants to optimize the process and uses worth as a means for judging. But anyways my main point was that people can easily detect their hidden agenda functions, based on how much it activates/deactivates them. People are very stingy with their hidden agenda. They keep track down to the penny yet they give it away to others, and even allow some people to take it.

    ISFj and ISFp are the most difficult for me. They hide well.

    ENFps/INFjs used to be the hardest for me to type. i routinely type them as thinkers.

    Forgot, ESFj-s are also easy for me to spot. My mother is one. I spot them by the fact that in matter of minutes I develop an unusual repulsion towards their character.

    Non offensive ESTps often look like ISTjs too me at a first glance. And if I pick up on the other functions be harder to identify.

    Dynamicism's comments were very good. I can relate to that.

    As for types, I have difficulty differentiating the four NF types at first.

    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.
