    I think he is an extreme Ni type?

    Seems to be. My version is EIE, with IEI less likely.

    A brief google search showed some of his subjects and photo mates: Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson -- all Beta types in my opinion. Here's a good photo of him:

    http://www.artofcolour.com/pop-art/p...rhol-photo.jpg

    He's thin and wiry, has an expressive, changeable face and appearance (likes to pose and change his image), and is focused on eliciting a reaction and focused on pop art and social phenomena (ethics). He seemed to enjoy being controversial.

    That's my impression, anyway.

    I never could stand his personality , the message behind his work I liked.

    I think he has and is irrational.

    I can't find references, so I'll have to quote from memory -- when he died, it turned out that his personal collections, and the decoration of this living quarters, were all based on classics. Nothing modern or avant-garde -- all classics. Extremely good, but conventional, taste.

    If true - and I think it is - it shows him to be a hypocrite and a showman, living a lie.

    I would say EIE definitely, now that I've read a bit more about him. He's all hype, all provocation. Very expansive activities, kept trying to reach new audiences and keep himself in the public eye.

    ISFJ in my opinion.
    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    what makes you say that he's a hypocrite?

    Because there is discrepancy between what he thought and what he said.

    I watched some short videos with him, and I've just about changed my mind to IEI.

    IEI
    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...
