    this is no NT.

    ENFP. he's got the "ENFP astigmatism", the smile that reacts to Ne before it's been expressed or externalized, and that inner NF paint pot.

    What do you think about his behavior, both on camera and off, in terms of MBTI type?

    What is a paint pot?

    And what are his principles? They are about connectedness, spirituality, transcendency, higher meaning, becoming a better person, authenticity. Could he be more NF?

    Paxman (the interviewer) is pure NT. Watch how Brand, desperate for acceptance and approval flirts with him, defers to him, tries to establish common ground. This wasn't sparring. It was seduction. I've never seen Paxman so charmed. I've never seen him go so easy on an interviewee.

    I actually prefer to watch Brand interviewed than perform. He often goes too far for my liking. His charm lies in his childlike wonder and sincerity and guilelessness, but he has no filters. Especially early in his career, he was a great example of pure Ne unfettered by introverted Judgement. No sense of appropriate boundaries. Just this hunger to connect and to penetrate, mentally, emotionally, physically. Quite scary, albeit mesmerising. I would not want to be in a room with that kind of energy though.

    Also (below) notice how he tunes into his "victim" to the extent that he somehow intuits that her boyfriend is a sailor. This is pure, spooky, NF mindfuckery. But he really had not learned how to reign it in and use it responsibly at that point. He was too drunk on his own charisma and the high he gets from seducing an audience.
    (Also crack, no doubt)


    His fascination, not to say obsession, with the profane is very NF too.
    I've never heard of an obsession with the profane being very NF.

    It sounds like people use a lot of Kiersey these days, as well as JCF (Fi 'values' in this case). Kiersey NF also desires and values self-improvement, but that is too weak a word for it. It is more likely self-transcendence.

    Does "Ne unfettered by introverted Judgement" mean he had poor judgment? Isn't that a trait of Perceptives anyway? It means he had poor external judgment (he came off as boorish or whatever). Fi does not fetter Ne, it informs Ne like a good angel sitting on his right shoulder whispering admonishments in his ear about his behavior.

    That's so true. That's like the best part of having kids, studying developing behaviour. I always have more than a couple human expiriments going on.

    It certainly can be. NFs aren't all sunshine and roses. (Well- some are. Others not so much- including some probably mistyped NTs who thought because they were obsessed with the profane that they couldn't be NFs.)

    I was waiting for someone to mention that. But what do you mean he doesn't lose energy? He certainly becomes more careful and thoughtful, the exact opposite of what he was. Let me put it differently then. He doesn't lose energy, he actually requires more energy while discussing a realm of ideas that is not in the public view because he doesn't normally or habitually put it out there for people to see. It requires much less use of energy discussing things he is more comfortable with putting out there for show.

    I've talked with members here about many current typed male ENTPs being actually ENFPs. I noticed earlier in the history of the forum there were more than a few bombastic ENFP males.

    It's because I think of NF as more brooding than explicitly profane. There may develop a fascination or obsession with the dark side of existence, but it's not something the NF advertises. Are you saying the ENFP may be more overt about it?
