    Sure, INTP makes sense based on this, but can't an INFP do this as well, especially a head-triad one? I myself am one, and I can do this pretty well. And one thing INFPs (or any Fi-dominant type) are really good at (so I've heard) are detaching from their emotions or suppressing their emotions explaining something or going into detail about something that overwhelms them emotionally. I don't know for sure, but I get the vibe that Maynard is like this, judging from his interviews.

    When INFP's are emotional, it clouds their judgement until I ask them questions that transfer their cognition to their temporal lobe, thus ending a recursive emotional state. They have NEVER been able to do this on their own. Even the ones I've met who are aware of typology and the inner workings of their mind.

    Now if you're talking about INFJ's, who have tertiary Ti, that's another thing entirely. They're usually stuck in an Ni-Ti loop and emotion comes secondary to them once they externalize.

    In theory. I see no reason for Fi>Ti, though. He just seems well versed in his particular area of interest.

    Possibly. I'm just failing to see the Fe anywhere, though.

    Whether he's INTP or INFP, that's not going to be obvious. He's a bit too mired in his work to exhibit the Fe of an ENTP.

    I meant by more of an inferior Fe standpoint, I wasn't really picking up one of those vibes watching his interviews. Then again, I might not know much about it, so maybe I'm wrong.

    Do you see any inferior Fe?

    Ni primary is clear. I type him as INTJ. Could possibly be INFJ, but I'm reasonably confident in INTJ.
