Jack up the rear of the car and rotate one of the rear wheels. If the other rear wheel rotates in the opposite direction you have an open diff, same direction you have an LSD.

LSD is also handy during winter months when traction is limited. The car behaves differently however it is consistent, which instills a measure of confidence when needing to merge in a blizzard.
