> No joke! I can meet someone and within minutes pickup their type and speak by mirroring them.

Your claim to that ability is perfectly credible. In fact, since the psychological qualities proper to a type ordinarily convey themselves nonverbally more than otherwise, intuition makes the most sense for type estimation.

Interestingly, people who use their "radar" to guess people's types agree on this level more often than do people who try to match overgeneralized behavior patterns systematically with types.

Admittedly, I find some Fives and NT's among the poorest type-spotters, though they analyze people earnestly. Befittingly, both character elements can hinder personal intuition - Five for fear of involvement, and NT for impersonal perspective.
