    Default Seth MacFarlane

    He stated in an interview that his character Brian was basically a caricature of himself, especially in the newer episodes of Family Guy.

    I think he's great. What's his type?

    Though I'd love to be his dual, the SLE typing just seems wrong.

    I could be way off base but I see Seth MacFarlane and Matt Groening (Simpsons and Futrama) as being ILE's. Seth MacFarlane especially loves being an ass, but doing it in a clever and fun way so that its not offensive... Fi-PoLR with Fe>Fi. Further if you look closely you can see Si-valuing... specifically with characters like Peter who are more ISxp. Also it is typical for family guy to do these jokes where they set some hypothetical situation up or throw out an analogy and then they cut to it. This seems incredibly Ne based to me.

    He was 2 when he started drawing; that takes some strong S

    variation of movement...take that as dynamics.

    NORMAL SLE don't always have to talk about themselves in socionics terms you know.

    ILE, imo. Fi-polr makes sense. SLE seems off-the-bat wrong, but I haven't watched any interviews. It's not impossible. Still... alpha seems to make more sense than beta. Certainly not an Fi-valuer.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    Brian's character seems like a pretty good candidate for ILI. His girlfriend for instance was an SEE probably. Don't know if anything else would fit better--he's some Fi/Te valuer for sure. He does have the Se dual-seeing adventuresome spirit where he doesn't actually accomplish much but daydreams about it, and has the kind of sentimental thoughts I associate with Ni, because they're not really all that feelly and emotional.

    I used to type him alpha NT back when I didn't really have a good idea of how the types were.

    It was always an empty relationship though. She wanted Ni & Te for him, which always seemed like something boring & lame to him (like calling him up to figure out how to work the remote, ect). He was embarrassed by her stupidity, but only really stayed with her because she was so hot.

    Well I'm still at a phase of confusing ILI and LII because of their on-the-surface similarity, but what type do you think he is? I know she was definitely SEE.

    ExTp. Not sure which. SLE is not too hard to imagine.. ILE is possible too, but usually ILEs go off on more tangents and have less obscenity / vulgarity in their humor.

    I said ILI because I read it in an other text, as I said. How does your quote contradict that?

    Yeah, she was SEE.

    I'm not 100% on his type. I'm kind of leaning towards ILE for both Brian and Seth. How does Brian value Fi btw? I don't see it.

    Idk. Not sure he really does. I'll have to watch a more Brian-focused episode and figure out why I said that and what his type really is. I can honestly see him as ILE. I know there's another thread about this, but how about the other characters?

    In his interviews he doesn't show Fi polr, he's always very gracious. I say ESE, though it looks like I'm in the minority right now.

    After watching the videos posted in this thread, the best match I can think of is IEI. His body language is calmer and more relaxed than I would expect an ILE to be (introversion, probably IP), and he seems to be able to handle social situations easily and without stress (strong Ethics). His humour does seem Se-valuing, not just because it's crude, but because it seems to focus a lot on superficial appearances -- his joke about Celine Dion's nose, etc. In that same Harvard speech, he talks a lot about status, making jokes contrasting Harvard's high social status, to his own low social status. This again seems like a typical Beta concern.

    Anyway, I'm not exactly solid on this IEI idea, but I do think Beta is a good place to start looking for his type.

    EP's are pretty calm looking, but they can mobilize quickly and have a lot of energy. Also ILE's like to lay around and think, and not neccessary be all up in everyone's face all the time. As far as appearance, being si-dual seeking, and se-role, ILE are very appearance conscious as well as status conscious. They will often comment on issues of class, race, religionous differences, money, equality and other topics.

    I dunno I'm just not seeing the Fi polr. Sure he has an offensive show, but in person he seems very tactful and socially graceful.

    MacFarlane seems SLE>ILE to me; even if he is super goofy, he has a kind of solidity to him that I just don't ever get from ILEs.

    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...

    Hey I got it right! I was thinking Seth is ESTp. He has that snarky, subdued manner, unable to hide what he's thinking, regardless of what the teleprompter says. Perfect as the anchor for Weekend Update.

    I'd buy a used car from him. He couldn't hide what was wrong, and would rather share the joke than sell the lemon.

    Cleveland is as SEI as they come.
    Stewie is obviously Ni creative. I think the whole being emotional + Hitler thing + being a bi stereotype is supposed to make him EIE.

    Upon further reflection, I'm going to change my hypothesis on McFarlane from IEI to EIE. His expressions and demeanour are more open than most IEIs, I think. And like electric sheep said, he seems too tactful and socially graceful for a Thinking type (especially in that video where he's interacting with the paparazzi, for example).

    EIE would also help explain why he's being mistaken for ILE; I've noticed that Benefit pairs frequently get confused, likely due to the Demonstrative function of the Benefactor being the Base function of the Beneficiary.
    Quaero Veritas.

    I was also thinking ILE might be possible, but Ne-ILE, same as Peter. Wouldn't say though--stewie appears to portray somewhat more of an Se/Ni value system in this kind of show though, so I tend to lean toward EIE. He has weird moments of science and logic, especially in the beginning, almost LII-like, but portrays EIE most of the time.

    This seems right.

    This seems potentially true. Not sure why all the idiots in this show would be ILE... hmm, maybe McFarlane knew someone
