Good point. I gotta say you are really the only S I know that is into this. The S people I know seem to turn the noses up at it.Well certainly. If someone takes a test, answer the questions truthfully (or so you would think), and the result is bogus, then there's a good reason to believe that the whole system is false. About people not caring about this, personality types are just another subject that people find either interesting or uninteresting. And for some people it might be of use and it might not be of use. So...I think people who find this uninteresting and useless couldn't care less about personality typing.
yep, but I feel everyone has thier own body languarge it is just about reading the atmosphere i guess.I pretty much intuitively knew what was up, but I recently began reading articles and books on it. It really just gave a name to what I already knew. It is fascinating.
excellent point--i would do anything to be both an N and an S! i want to develop my S.I don't think S types require a theory of personality as much as the N types. They can deal with individuals by observing physical clues. They don't have to project themselves into another's position using a process of imagining what it would be like to see from another perspective, because they notice the way someone's body shifts when that person is uncomfortable. They figure out patterns of behavior for the individuals and don't need to fit those tendencies into a theoretical framework to make sense of them. It doesn't matter what it means, as long as it is clearly observable. The effect is the same. It means that they may never understand us on a deeper level, but then again, my ESFP friend was very good at understanding people. He could state things about my friends that I wouldn't have noticed. "[Person A] isn't as smart as he thinks he is, [person B] isn't as mature as he thinks he is, and you talk about things as if they were how they should be instead of how they actually are." He was right about everyone, and I was surprised.
Not hard to read the body language of your avatar!I'm pretty good at reading body language.
Ya this is true. My mom is an ESFP and I would have to tie her to my chair in order to get her into this. I am surprised the the ESTJ and ESTPs are getting into it. Many of my friends are these types and I could not picture them gaining any interest in these sort of discussions. Kudos to you estjs and estps.ESFP - had to use sound persuasion to get them to even stay seated long enough to test. Even worse trying to verify with additional testing.
