It’s like I’m reading my own mind. I don’t get the opportunity to talk to other EIIs a lot so I’m just fangirling right now
I had a crush on an SLI-Si friend with whom it wasn’t reciprocal either. I also had an SLI-Si childhood best friend with whom I experienced that feeling of, man they just get it. We called each other kindred spirits, and I still think that holds true. But SLIs of the Si subtype do seem to get stifled by our Fi after a while. I’ve had people tell me that even when I try not to emphasize it, they can feel it lingering in the background. It’s a pity because otherwise it’s such a harmonious relation!
Yes, for real. I can quickly tell when there’s an LSE-Si around me just because the psychological atmosphere instantly settles, like a storm just suddenly clearing into a blue sky when you get into their presence. And I second what you said about LSE-Tes softening around us - after detailing my tumultuous dynamic with my uncle, I must admit even he is sometimes touched by my Fi. It can be really endearing.
With my LSE-Te romance, it was a sexuality issue...we had feelings for each other but he was in the closet before I came into the picture and did not want to commit to a woman. We shared passions and talents we’d never shared with others and we were always better together than apart. To me, he was my soulmate. But he started to take advantage of my loyalty to him in spite of knowing his situation, and I couldn’t continue. It was when we were over that he realized what my presence meant for him (duality-wise), but...it is what it is. He did teach me how beautiful duality can be, though.

Taking the problem of high speculativity (including of the process as with VI) of existing typing methods, if you want to play in arguments about types - offer your opponent to explain his opinion or doubts. With some thinking it will be not hard to see and to point weak places of his arguments.
It's easier to reduce a possiblity of some types. But it's doubtful to explain a whole type by arguments with good objectivity.
What is possibly now is to use matched results of independent methods and opinion sources as objective approach. If more tests and typers agree (independently!) - it's more possible trait/type from objective point.
I suppose Ti valued types have higher interest and trust to speculative games with behavior arguments possible today, as Te valued ones should notice better the lack of objectivity. It's also easier to logically convince F types, though they are easier to change later such opinions.
Also, there is significant chance of your mistake with today methods. It's more when you don't have good typing experience. When know not much about a human, what exists for the ones you do not know good personally and who did not do special typing questionnaires/tests.
For types about famouses and public people you are doomed to have bad arguments due to lack of info - it's impossibly to type them with assurance by common behavior only. It's appropriate with intuitive VI which has no arguments to say to other human.
To identify types of famouses are needed good VI skills, what noobs have no. You just play here in a typing, same as in arguments.
To me, you are definitely EII-Fi - from the first time you quoted me your interjections and semantics have been very reflective of rational-subtype rational Delta dyad.

His extended talk with Stephen King (my money is on SLE for him)
looks like quasi-identical dialogue in front of a live audience.
Skip ahead to the 12:00 mark to hear them talk.
She does demonstrate a certain diffidence that doesn't seem characteristic of a sensory type. I am thinking Sam Claflin, whom she acted with in Pirates of the Caribbean, may be SLI-Si.

I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE

I feel like Ed Sheeran is EII. He has an Ne ego face. His music is often metaphorical, but also gentle, which makes me think Si-valuing > Se-valuing. Introvert with 4D Fi.
Hes probably SEI
I feel like Ed Sheeran is EII.
I never liked Ed Sheeran much so works for me. I always wondered why i didn't like him. It didn't seem like directly he was an asshole, but how he's constantly smiling maybe seemed jerk-ish and sociopathic or so nice it was actually mean sort of thing. I would agree Deltas are closest to God but God is also cruel and wrathful and vindictive and hateful as much as he is kind and loving and generous and all of that. Hail Satan bro.
