One thing that I was always curious about is how people can tell other people's types with confidence while not being certain about their own type at the same time. It is almost like:

- I say, I can give you a driving lesson, madam!
- How marvellous! How long have you been driving for?
- Oh, I'm not even sure if I can drive, ma'am!

Do you also find it a bit strange or is it just me?

Actually, it is easier to tell others' types then your own. You don't have an objective view of yourself, but you do of others.

For instance, it is easier to see if somebody else is smart, or goodlooking, or cool, etc., then it is to see if you have these traits.

Also, there is some sort of feedback on your correctness. For instance, if you type everybody ESFp or something, you are most definitely wrong. If you type YOURSELF wrong, you may never know!

But it is definitely easy (and completely unavoidable) to group people into similarities. Even before socionics, I would always say things like "Oh! You are exactly like so-and-so!" and everyone was similar to someone else in spooky ways.

It's probably easier to type people who are comfortable in their own skin and not constantly trying to compensate for their perceived or real personality flaws to impress you. (But even that can be a means of analysis).

Does anyone else find it easier to type well adjusted people, than those who may be a little disturbed.

Aren't we all a bit disturbed?
