Backing away from inner workings and all that at the moment and looking only at verbal and non-verbal cues such as gait, vocabulary, frequency of eye contact, tendency to laughter and manner of dress. Pretty much anything you can think of. Is one more anal than the other? Any cheat codes I can use to figure this one out?
My actual dilemma: contemplating whether or not to work with someone next year. I still can't tell if he's an SLI or an LII and I have heard that relationships of supervision are not fun.
I posted about him on the What's your type thread and got a few SLI responses but I met him again today and when I paid attention his vocabulary it all seemed very TiNe-esque! Ne generalisation words ('basically,' 'in general'), talking about researching a "fundamental process" and how that would contribute to the development of clinical therapy.
BUT I think I may have found an account of his on a forum and there he comes across as more of an SLI.
Long story short, this is killing me.
