Rich or Lean??

Just curious as to what are the tell tail signs that you are running too rich or too lean?

Too rich :- rough idle, fouling plugs, engine slow to respond to throttle input, accelerates roughly.

Too lean :- engine hesitates then accelerates when responding to throttle input, engine may run hotter, plugs could be whiter/lighter than normal colour, engine may ping.
