    Default Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop

    He is the most popular reviewer of underground music on the internet. I find his alter ego hilarious, but the rest of the videos are usually only mildly interesting.

    I think someone proposed ILE for him at some point. I can agree with that. Ti-subtype could be it.

    That could be it. I had originally thought SEI for him, but seeing him recently Im not sure he is goofy enough. He is definitely Ti/Fe though.

    I noticed in this review he interprets understated emotion as being a gimmick, or something that they have to go out of their way to force, so that might be proof for Fi-PoLR.

    His interview with Nardwuar gives a more candid look at his personality than his actual videos. He seems very rigid to me. I think that's just a symptom of Ti ego.

    Changed my mind on this one too. I think he is definitely ESE. I just recently got to know an ESE who is very similar to him, and I think it explains his silly humor and why a lot of his non-musical tangents lie in the sphere of social norms applied to culture.

    I think he (Anthony, not Cal) is an alpha extrovert.

    I feel the same way. Aggressively childish. I'm not sure whether it is ILE or LIE.

    I'm not familiar with this guy, but he is running the same software as this creepy grad student I worked with many years ago. The guy's creepiness was legendary in the places he worked. He actually got a restraining order placed against him on the third day of his job in one place by a woman that he spoke to only briefly.

    Over time, a pattern emerged between this guy and his jobs. He'd get these great jobs based on his published accomplishments, but when people actually had to work with him in person, he'd be let go in the shortest time possible.

    I always thought that the creepy guy I knew was one-of-a-kind, and seriously mentally screwed up. He was incredibly smart, but was able to universally make people hate him in less than a minute of meeting him. BUT, here he is again. Maybe this guy in this thread represents some odd combination of sociotype and enneagrem that isn't very common, IDK.

    I do know that my good ILI friend Karl, a genius-level guy who started a laser manufacturing company when he was twenty and never had to seriously work again, met creepy guy at a working lunch one day. Creepy guy said one sentence to Karl and, in Karl's world, he immediately ceased to exist. Just vanished from the Earth. The guy still talked at Karl, but to Karl, there was no one sitting in that chair. I thought the guy was a pain in the ass and an asshole, but I had never seen anyone treat him like Karl did. Karl didn't waste time with idiots.

    Could Karl and Creepy Guy have been conflictors? IDK.

    I do think Fantano is Alpha. I don't get warm fuzzy feelings from him, either.

    Probably Ti-SLE. Maybe ILE.

    Not that familiar with him. Whatever he's talking about seems boring, and I resent people trying to explain music to me.

    @hag
    I think it's a possibility for all extraverted types - just dominated by rationality or irrationality. ILE is usually described as ''good-natured'' and calm (which i agree with, but also that this good-natured attitude also culls any real discussion of weight at times when it is needed), whereas aggressiveness is often relegated to central quadras. I agree with present Ne, though. Also seems Fe indulging in an obscene, meaningless way.

    What do you think, @Sol?

    Interesting. Quite far off from ENTX guess of mine.
