    Touche. However, don't you think he's got the physical characteristics of an ENTJ, too? If you buy into that... (maybe you don't)

    I didn't know much about the man, and I was going based upon assumption. I could see NTJ in what I know about him.

    Get an NTJ behind these ideas, and you have one productive activist, inspirationalist, and idealist. It's not what you believe in and feel, but how you believe in it and how you feel about it.

    Does he like the idea of believing in these things? Does it add to the type of character he sees himself as? It's the ego telling him who he is. He has an identity he's trying to view himself as.

    I can't possibly see him as an NF.

    I don't know why people always automatically associate NF with concepts of faith and mysticism, and stereotype NTs as strictly logical, intellectual, pragmatistical pessemists. Lennon wasn't that, yet he is clearly an NT. Ghandi was an INTJ, as was Jesus, in my opinion. They knew what they believed in and executed it in a very NTJ fashion. They focused on it, they took it to the max, not letting their guard down.

    Don't assume too much about NTs and NFs, as a general statement to everyone.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I once read a thing describing his songwriting process as told by people who knew him well and worked with him, and it seemed extremely rational and almost formulaic/structured... it was all done in layers of structure that were built up, creating structure and then filling in the details. This seems to be the opposite of how I think P's theoretically approach things, where details are made first and structure is created afterwards.

    My friend who reminds me a huge amount of him is ENTJ I think. Almost certain. So I'm with others on ENTJ. I'd heard him called an NFP constantly and I was never that sure. So this is feeling more settling. It was this photo that really screamed it to me at the start and lead me in the NTJ direction. To me it pretty clearly VIs as ENTJ also. Reminds me of the ones at work as well as my friend.



    The Beatles wouldn't be a bad example of "taking over the world" either.

    It never crossed my mind that he could be an NTJ. Very interesting. Any idea what Yoko is?

    No idea about Yoko yet. I'll look though.

    Paul's a pretty classic ESFP, yeh? or is that one that people just assumed too?
