Aside from getting someone to take a version of the test, what techniques do you use to try and determine a person's type? Do you try and match someone's personality with which ever type description fits them best, go through the functions one by one, ask specific questions, or another sort of method?
I've employed all of these methods at one point or another, though recently I've begun to understand the individual functions more and more and have been observing which functions a person uses (and does not use) the most. Process of elimination is also a very effective way for me as well. Of course some people are much more difficult to type than others so it always helps to have a variety of ways to go about trying to type them.
