    I def see some Fe on Bruce Lee. Contrast that with a Vlad Putin (ISTp) or Dr. Dre (ISTp)

    C'mon man, my above reply to your post was to make people laugh. You totally fucked it up by telling me about Jeet Kune Do which I already know. Killed the joke on the spot.

    The below post summarizes the core of Jeet Kune Do in less than 3 minutes. You should watch it.

    The episode Waltz for Venus does a good job explaining it.

    It got me interested in it. I've even done it when I was quite small in a friendly right; not Jeet Kun Do itself but the concept of it without even knowing what Jeet Kun Do was. Somehow it felt natural, practical and quite effective.

    Watch this clip. I love it.

    You have a point. He had much stronger Fe than those two. Perhaps his Fe was developed - Fe is the weakest function of ITPs and development of it means it makes him a healthy individual by MBTI standards - or he was an ESTP.

    One thing is for sure, he was an Se user above Ne.

    And the below video - though I don't agree with the typing - implies he definitely had the functions Ti, Fe, Se, Ni.

    Ooops the video doesn't exit anymore. Too bad.

    Anyway, we can conclude that he was either a ISTP, ESTP, ENFJ or INFJ. The latter two are highly unlikely, but if he was the healthy individual as I explained above - by MBTI terms - it could mean that he could have been anyone of those types with traits identical to all those four types; which makes things quite cool.

    Now imagine an ESTJ with INFP traits. Oooo!

    Could it be that Bruce Lee was what could be called a near self-actualized ISTP? I used to think he was INFJ but the more I learn about functions [which is a constantly on-going process for me], the more I realize that each set of cognitive preferences is far broader and encompassing that I was able to grasp before. Instead of putting people in boxes, it makes each person, of each cognitive type, ever more unique. I'm not so convinced of his INFJ-ness anymore. I haven't written it off as a possibility but have rather placed it right under a highly balanced and developed ISTP.

    I've actually become a lot more familiar and better at spotting Si vs Se. Its actually really easy to tell the difference after you get familiar.


    He does seem pretty Si from what I've seen.

    You have no clue what Si is. Bruce Lee is the biggest Ni dom there ever was. Are you joking? lol. Si? You don't understand Si at all. Everything he talks about is the intangible and vision. There are very few details of fighting, it is more freeing yourself from tradition and expresing your emotions authetnically. Not technical details. He is an INFJ. Without question. Seriously. The guy is so Ni it is ridiculous. That is what Ni looks like. He is a counselor/teacher type.
