    I don't do V.I. at all and I'm pretty new to socionics. But having been a huge fan of TMBG for many many years (still am), I'll venture to guess:

    Linnell: INFp

    Flansburgh: ESFp

    Linnell INTj, and Flansburgh ENTp. The opposite temperaments are noticeable in the interview. Linnell's way of speaking is consistently Ti, and they both seem to use Ne a lot (e.g., noticing what is atypical about their music or projects). In addition, their music is a great example of Alpha music.

    I agree with Alpha and Flansburgh being ENTp. Not sure of specific type of Linnell but I wouldn't argue with INTj. I wouldn't rule out them both being ENTp.

    I love TMBG. I listened to them in college, and now they're doing kids' music and my daughter loves them too!
