    Default Some Things to Keep in Mind When Typing

    The idea of type stereotypes. Be wary of them and how they may influence your typing of people.

    Some basic ones:

    Not all cheerleaders are ESFj or ESFp
    Not all jocks are ESTp
    Not all physics majors are TiNe
    Not all entrepreneurs are ENTj
    Not all accountants are ISTj
    Not all middle managers are ESTj
    Not all poets are INFp
    Not all flautists are ISFp

    Feel free to add to this list.

    Now this doesn't mean to discredit general type tendencies which I believe are true. Because I do believe that certain areas would allow certain functions to prosper more than others, however when determining a type I think it's important to look for the patterns you see in the areas a person chooses to involve themselves, and not just use one area to say "ok he fits the mold of a XXXX". You also have to look at what aspects of their chosen areas they focus on, and the way they go about it, which ultimately indicates their functions.

    For example if someone is both into theoretical physics but likes watching sports because he likes to watch and follow what strategic moves the coach/manager makes and their impact on the game, and they like physics because they like examining the different possibilites of what exists and analyzing it, you can assume the person has Ti, since relational logic is being used in both instances. However from his interest in the physical and realistic aspects of sports, you detect Se, but then from his interest in exploring the possibilities of the unexplained in physics, you detect Ne. (If in physics he chooses to focus on the applied aspects of physics, it may yield a different functional interest) So you can't quite determine from this which percieving function they use more, even though you have the judging function.

    Therefore regardless of what percieving function this person has, he has a common interest with both sports fans and physicists, who fall into different socionics "sterotypes". So a person shouldn't be suprised when he can relate to or is friends with people from both ends of his functional interest range.

    He with his broad range of interests should have both SeTi friends and NeTi friends (and their mirrors), because notice the common link is Ti. Not everyone's friends have to match on every function, or on any function for that matter. Relationships depend a lot on context and interest as well.

    To determine which percieving function is dominant, you would have to look again at what he gets out of his two different interests. When he watches sports, is he focused more on the action itself and the play at hand (Se), or is he focused more on the overall flow of the game and the possibilities at hand at different points in the game (Ne)?. With physics is he more interested in figuring out how to use his knowledge to be practical and possibly profitable (Se), or to be focused on following the deep rabbithole (Ne)?

    Introversion/Extraversion you could also see with how they go about their interests.

    Just an awareness thread. Feel free to add

    you didn't list all of the types.

    I don't see what's so important about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. It's just more people to declare war on.

    EVERYONE PLZ CONTINUE TO UPLOAD INFINITE AMOUNT OF PICS OF "CUTE" CATS AND PUPPIES. YOU KNOW WE GIVE A SHIT!!

    I do make these two stereotypes. lol.....

    ok, here's my list

    Not all starving artists are INFp or ISFp
    Not all mothers are ISFj
    Not all popular people are ESTp or ESFp
    Not all smart people are Is

    that's all for now. can't think of any more eg.s.

    Ummm, yes they are.

    Not all jocks are ESTp
    Yes they are

    Not all physics majors are TiNe
    I can't believe I'm hearing this. How can a physics major not be Ti Ne? That's like saying cheerleaders and not ESFj or ESFp or jocks are not ESTp. Blasphemy.

    And you forgot

    All actors are ENTp.

    Thanks for these wonderful shortcuts in typing. You've saved me so much effort for the future.

    True. Some are autistic, too.

    Not everyone emotionally expressive/'a drama queen' is an ENFj.
    Not everyone intellectual and philosophical is Intuitive.
    Not everyone down-to-earth and commonsense is Sensing.

    Not everyone who proves to be intelligent (maybe in a specific area, to quote Einstein) is a Thinker.
    Not all players are SLEs and SEEs.
    Not all Intuitives are geniuses.
    Not all Feelers are kind, soft, warm etc.
