If you already knew one shapeshifter and met another, how could you tell them apart?

Knowing their personality. And I'm pretty sure you can tell the different and how they acted around you.

Dose one with trace radioactive chemicals With advance enough detection equipment you could determine a unique value for each person based on the proportion and half-life of time duration, based with a standard radioactive reference chemical. Sort of a chemical barcode.

The shapeshifters probably have a favored "base" shape that they consider their true self, so whenever they're in that shape, you can be fairly certain it's them. For the rest (and if you are concerned that they are trying to impersonate the other), speech patterns and behavior.
And you still can't be certain all the time.

Quantum entanglement.

I agree with personality; Just by paying attention to certain actions, you can easily tell who it is unless they're a good actor. To confirm things you could ask specific questions or push their buttons.

The evil one will have a beard, obviously.

Alternatively, you could probably use dogs or cats or something, animals are pretty perceptive.

You could base it on personality, unless the shifter you knew before was actually the shifter you just met it disguise, the whole time.

Assuming their scent doesn't change when they shift, I would use a scent hound to tell them apart.

I couldn't. I would just have to brutally murder the impersonating shapeshifter who made me cheat on my shapeshifter.

If you already knew the first one well enough, then ask both to write their signatures. They may be able to mimic appearances and major behavior, but it's the little things that count. If it's too hard to distinguish, then use a computor or some other device to scan the penmanship.
