{ pojoOnly: true }

With pojoOnly flag it only reports Plain-Old Javascript Objects as object, and reports "instances" by their constructor names (e.g. Moment for moment instance). In case if object was created from the nameless function, it will be reported as unknown.

var typeOf = require('precise-typeof');

// reported differently with `{pojoOnly: true}`
typeOf(new function Moment(){}, {pojoOnly: true}); // -> 'Moment'
typeOf(new function ABC(){}, {pojoOnly: true});    // -> 'ABC'
typeOf(new function(){}, {pojoOnly: true});        // -> 'unknown'

// same with or without `{pojoOnly: true}`
typeOf({}, {pojoOnly: true});                      // -> 'object'
typeOf([], {pojoOnly: true});                      // -> 'array'
typeOf(25, {pojoOnly: true});                      // -> 'number'
typeOf(Infinity, {pojoOnly: true});                // -> 'number'
typeOf('ABC', {pojoOnly: true});                   // -> 'string'
typeOf(function(){}, {pojoOnly: true});            // -> 'function'
typeOf(Math.sin, {pojoOnly: true});                // -> 'function'
typeOf(undefined, {pojoOnly: true});               // -> 'undefined'
typeOf(true, {pojoOnly: true});                    // -> 'boolean'
typeOf(null, {pojoOnly: true});                    // -> 'null'
typeOf(NaN, {pojoOnly: true});                     // -> 'nan'

typeOf(new Object(), {pojoOnly: true});            // -> 'object'
typeOf(new Array(), {pojoOnly: true});             // -> 'array'
typeOf(new Number(5), {pojoOnly: true});           // -> 'number'
typeOf(new Number(Infinity), {pojoOnly: true});    // -> 'number'
typeOf(new String('ABC'), {pojoOnly: true});       // -> 'string'
typeOf(new Function(), {pojoOnly: true});          // -> 'function'
typeOf(new Boolean(), {pojoOnly: true});           // -> 'boolean'
typeOf(new Number('blabla'), {pojoOnly: true});    // -> 'nan'
