    ISxP. He's like Jimi Hendrix, they didn't need to work at what they do, it was who they were.

    Bruce Lee developed a philosophy about martial arts that, in itself, sounds very ISTP-ish, but the way he sold it held a quality of extraverted confidence. His interviews almost depict him as being aristocratic about it, and his career didn't orbit martial arts as much as it revolved around the popularization and attitude towards it. He was a showman. From that angle, I could see why someone might think he's ESFJ, but popular opinion says otherwise.

    #1: Fe doms are very expressive, yet can also be very constrained in their presentation.
    #2: Bruce Lee is very intense and high energy. Ever see an angry ESFJ?
    #3: He is a huge advocate of depersonalization, a natural trait of extroversion.
    #4: His talks about "no longer identifying with the self" can be linked with Ti inferior. Although Se could also be argued for this. As an Se dominant personality myself, I can identify with his explosive gusty movements and flowing with the environment, however I do not identify with the way he labels his fist as "this." De-realization is a process in which the person no longer feels the environment, he simply watches it as if watching a movie, but doesn't identify with it. As an Se dom who likes to snowboard, when I am in my state of flow and complete de-personalization, I feel every object, its weight, my fists are my own but I am not a person any longer, I become a telekinetic force, a poltergeist that moves objects around me at will, almost like avatar air bender. Bruce Lee on the other hand, seems to disconnect with the environment and focus only on shaping his "form" to flow with the environment, which is the complete opposite technique I use. It is impossible for me to view myself as water, because that means I still have a cohesive form. I do not. I become a cloud of electricity.

    Se goes external. See the rock, become the rock. Se dominants are thunderous and gusty.
    Si goes internal. Be like water and form yourself to your environment. Si dominants are graceful, tranquil and quiet.

    Here's a vid referencing what I'm talking about.

    I think he has Ni eyes. Steady, penetrative and slighty reflective. As crazy as that might sound, I think he was a INFJ.

    Yes, I know. But I also know he was a introvert by all means, and that he has Ni eyes. Check this video:

    I loved this video. Thank you for sharing noobie.

    I don't agree with some of the typings but who am I to argue with who-ever-made-this video who probably is a professional? Anyway even though I disagree with some of the typings I must say they accurately, beautifully and informatively portrayed the facial expressions of INFJs. It would be impossible for me to not feel bonded to these individuals if they ever wanted me to and I think I fell in love with the second person in the video.

    You should make a thread based on this video. Maybe name it INFJ facial expressions and post it on one of the relevant forums.

    Default Bruce Lee

    I actually think Bruce Lee could very well be ESTP. After watching some old footage of him, his demeanor reminds me of an ESTP. Also his Fe is expressed alittle too much for it to be his inferior function. An example would be his shouts when he throws a punch or a kick. Thoughts?

    Shouting when throwing a punch/kick is kind of a karate thing. He has probably substituted pissed off cat sounds instead of guttural labour pains commonly used in karate because it hurts his Se.
