    What, to "type?"

    Was this about you or someone else?

    EJ of some kind, I think. Reminds me slightly of a friend of mine who I actually have always thought of as the same type as myself, although I've recently begun to reconsider what our similarities in terms of psychological type actually are. The types I'm currently considering for the friend are ILE, ESE, and EIE; of these I would suspect ILE least of OJ, and probably ESE-Fe the most.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    OJ? Certainly worth considering. He does seem to use Fe like a Ti type, now that I take a second look.

    dee I have to say that this is probably your best type analysis to date. The only thing I would change is that "standing in my community" probably references Fe and Ni together rather than Se (makes sense of why he seemed particularly proud of this one without offering much to back it up; super id behavior at it's finest ), which would be more like his "influence" in the community; "standing" references other people's impression of his actions, whereas influence would be more about his actual ability to make things happen. But other than that, you've got good stuff here: your points about aristocracy are spot on, he does talk more like a declarer, I agree with you that he seems most likely merry, and a lot of his language is noticeably static.

    Well done.

    You know, I bet it never even crossed his mind at the time that he could possibly in the future ever kill her. Maybe the person he was in those moments during the video "always does the morally right thing" (whatever that is), but the person we are in one moment is not exactly the person we are in the next... such that after several years, certain aspects of us have changed so much that perhaps even the essence of who we were before is somewhat different than the essence of who we are "now." This is why a statement like "I always do the morally right thing" is rather meaningless. There is no constant self who can always be counted upon to do this "morally right thing" in all scenarios from now until death.

    i have to disagree with you on "standing in my community" though. i think he exactly refers to some sort of respectful status, power, importance of a sort, which is all Se as far as i'm concerned. also i think being proud is largely to do with Se (this is an ethical topic so i'd like to add that i think that functions can have sinful and healthy fillings. pride versus humble and reasonable force and humble assignage of power by the authorities for example, or something like that).

    i mean i can even see the opposite in relation to not backing himself up about the community standing thing, i think it adds even more to his overall Se outlook - sort of being so confident about it to an extent of deciding not to elaborate.

    yes, people get impressed by his actions perhaps, but i mean we are talking about HIM using functions and not other people, right?

    correct me if i'm wrong please.

    Well, the way he talks about makes me think he's saying "people think highly of me." He's talking about his image. To me, this says Fe Ni. Were he talking about something Se related, he would be saying "I have influence over people; I can cause x to happen because of my power/standing in the community."
