trash folklore ahead
At a work dinner last night, a lovely lady whom I mentally typed as an ESFJ confessed to being in love with getting flowers and elaborated on the joys of it at length… Just like I was told they did on some less than credible website. Coincidence?!
Albeit the Myers Briggs Type Indicator is quite unscientific and given way too much credence, it can be great fun. So I collected the in no way scientific (but hugely useful) internet-folklore findings on MBTI that resonated with me here.
How to know if they like you for each MBTI type:
ENTP: prove themselves by arguing and arrogance
ENFP: smile more than usual
ENFJ: try to be perfect in front of you
ESTP: get awkward
ESTJ: become very attentive and turn into great listeners
ESFP: make fools of themselves in an endearing way
INFP: nobody really knows
INFJ: it’s a secret
ISTP: confront and act direct
ISTJ: make a lot of intense eye contact
ISFJ: throw little glance and smiles
What word do the MBTI types use to describe someone they like:
How to quickly understand each of the 16 MBTI types:

ENFJ: passionate, charismatic, manipulative
ENTJ: strong, authoritative, intense

My sources? An merged assortment from Tumblr and Pinterest, the cradle of modern science. (Seriously, the original posts are mostly gone, so I can’t even credit them properly). If you are the original author and wish to be credited, please let me know.
In the mood for some mind games? You can try it too.
The trick is to start with T vs F. That should be obvious.
Then move on to J or P: do they prefer certainty and clarity or do they like spontaneity and open options?
S vs N: are the down-to-earth, practical and pragmatic or do they prefer thinking about the future?
E vs I can be very hard, but it is probably the one that matters the least.
Let me know how this horoscope works out for you 😉
