    Default perfect examples

    of each type. For (my) increased understanding, contribute any people you know of that are perfect examples of a specific type. I saw the big brother post and thought of this thread because that guy was the epitome of an SLE.

    All I've got is Oprah - EIE, John Travolta - SLI, Einstein - ILI.

    I think Hitler is a good example of an EIE.

    Please don't anyone come up with Thomas Edison as LSE. I think he is LIE. Read his wiki entry to see what I mean.

    John Travolta for SLI? I can't see that. I can't see Fe being his PoLR. And I think he's an ethical type, though not necessarily Fe - he could be an Fi type.

    the dude is always so calm and collected and he has that constant semi-smirk on his face, which is characteristic of ISTp's. and I think socionics.com has him listed as one. He's also a pilot, which is an area a lot of ISTp's go into - more or less technical pursuits.

    And Ezra, you think Hitler was ENFj?? I thought he was INTj. I mean, he knew how to captivate the hearts and minds of others publicly, but he was cold and strategic.

    BTW, Hitler convinced himself he was God. Only an entp can come to that conclusion.

    Travolta could be ESI, Einstein is most often typed as ILE.

    I recommend people read Mein Kampf - I saw one in a charity shop recently, but it was £2.50 ($5), which was a little dear for a paperback.

    I highly doubt Einstein was extro. Look at a picture of him, he has a focused gaze. An ILE wouldn't think deep like he did; they would explore many different venues. The ILI is the one who really creates the large theories.

    Another perfect example of an EIE (at least for me) is Steve Vai.

    doubtful. mbti and socionics differ on things like function usage; not what extroversion/introversion is.

    does this look like an ENFj to you?

    Don't bother aruging with people on this forum over Hitler's type. His stigma as enfj has such deep roots here that's he's literally become the standard for typing people as enfj )as sick as that is). Of course I disagree, but this has been going on for years. I don't know what's wrong with this forum, but that's always been a rule around here. Just give up.

    so, someone has an idea and everyone latches onto it as absolute truth. Sounds positive....like it could have great effects if applied in society :wink:

    I don't think it's true at all that Hitler is used by anyone as "standard" for ENFj. That's rubbish. And if that is the case, I think most people here would disagree.

    As in our discussion over Mandela, I think you disagree because you look at types more from the point of view of Jung's original typology rather than socionics as such. It's not just "this forum" that types Hitler as ENFj, anyway.

    Rick wrote extensively on that here:

    http://www.socionics.us/philosophy/hitler.shtml

    So it's not just a question of "being sick".

    I would certainly object to using Hitler as a "perfect example" of ENFj. That would be sick imo.

    I haven't studied his personality too deeply so I can't tell for sure but in my opinion his main theories seem more NeTi than NiTe. With my current knowledge I would say he is more likely in Alpha than Gamma Quadra and more likely ENTp than INTj.

    About your criticism, it is really hard to say how many different venues he did explore. Then I'm not sure if I understand why ILI would create larger theories than ILE? I'd say ILE is more likely to create theories in the first place.

    An example of ILI could be Charles Darwin.

    You linked to a picture and asked if it looked like an ENFj to me. That only warranted a "yes" response.

    alright, literally speaking, why does that specific picture convey him as an ENFj to you - especially compared with the one of oprah.

    I started laughing when I read that. It reminded me of once upon a time when I was joking around with a friend, and I convinced her that if there is a god, he must be ENTp.
    I was only half-kidding, of course.

    Because everyone looks that serious in portraits. VIing from a portrait is not a good idea. But:

    I started laughing when I read that. It reminded me of once upon a time when I was joking around with a friend, and I convinced her that if there is a god, he must be ENTp.
    I was only half-kidding, of course.
    Nah. God is ISTj. ENTps are God's supervisors

    If there were a God, it couldn't be any type, because types are falliable, and God should be infalliable.




    Tangent... God IS NOT either a man or a woman. This is one of the worst arguments to have people. I don't know why so many people are obsessed with it. Men have male reproductive organs, women have female reproductive organs. God doesn't reproduce, so it has neither. It's asexual.

    If it exists.
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!
