    You need to type other people around you and check how intertype relations theory correlates with your impressions from them. This is the obligate method to check different versions of your type. You may also to use my examples of types - bloggers in my signature, to check IR.

    I like it when you offer your help. I think it's very nice.
    @Danali

    It took me some time to find my type. I asked a lot of people and kept a good journal of myself. I think the most instrumental person in my life in typing me was my mom. She's very good at reading her kids. I asked what qualities she observed in me to get an objective picture. We all want to see ourselves as good at everything and don't often want to admit or own up to our short comings. She's a very honest person so she right away said qualities that fit into EII and she in fact pointed right at EII when I read her descriptions and functions. I always say those are the best way, so a journal and mom

    i don't thinnk you are meant to type them accurately in this context. you can have a quadra filter, a function filter , a positive/negative relationship filter etc and see what sticks

    by giving them general archetype labels based on how they take care of others for instance "bossy director" who says "let's get the laundry done" and other home tasks is LSE. The politician attitude person is SEE, and the one comfortable in human relations-me EII

    lol

    OP, just look at your behavior and your motivations. What kind of information do you focus on? What's important to you? What do you expect others to help you with? What stuff irks you for no good reason?

    Teach typology theory and find the type which describes the person in way good fitting to the theory. Then same with other peoples. All these types should fit to IR theory with your type. There is nothing impossible.

    If you want be typed by others, give your videointerview. Without this it's doubtfuly to type you correctly.

    Te types tend to gather many facts and hence have high erudition. But such type of knowledge is surface.

    All knowledge is surface in the end. Real depth does not come from knowing.

    Typing yourself will give you your most accurate worldview. Getting the impressions of others around you concerning your type will help you get a more accurate impression of the reality of yourself.

    Go by values first. Between macro-element pairs, e.g., Fe vs Fi, read all eight over, then pick which of a certain pair is the #1 most important distinction. Then pick your second. That should give you your type. E.g., Fi vs Fe is the most important distinction to myself, followed by Ne vs Ni, giving me EII.
