Here is a quick tip that you can use when typing other people in MBTI. How do you tell a person that has the judging trait when they talk?
The answer is to count the number of similes and metaphors they use. Similes are comparisons phrases (using the words ‘like’ and ‘as’). When you make a comparison, and you think it is the same as another situation, then you have made a judgement about it.
People with the judging trait use significantly more similes than a person with the perceiving trait. And if you specifically listen for it, you’ll find it is relatively easy to pick up. It is just like picking out a familiar laugh in a crowded room.
Did you pick up the simile in that last phrase?
