    IMO, NTPs predominate in the fandom of the original series, but NFPs abound in the fandom of the reboot.

    And let's not forget that collecting is a largely SJ activity.

    Could be any I_T_.

    Anything else is just speculation really and not worth much.

    I'm not sure which types would actually collect the memorabilia the most. As far as what type Doctor Who fans are, I agree with Ivy. And I think the memorabilia has become more kitschy as well. I can remember when I was younger it seemed like NT guys (my only exposure to any of this when I was young was Doctor Who enthusiasm of a couple friends' fathers) took this stuff very seriously: it was a mortal sin to touch the VHS (or Beta) collection or anything in the realm of 'collector's item'. It was all "going to be worth a lot of money some day." (At least that was the story, I kinda think there was some extra issue of identity or something wrapped up in the protective attitude they had towards it, it was almost clearly about *more* than money.) But these days it seems like the memorabilia is more stuff that actually gets used- like keychains or such. So there's a whole different character to collecting it too.

    The INFJs that fall for The Doctor, fall for him hard. My INFJ ex was a collector.

    NTPs getting old into the Si era of their lives? i don't know, i suppose car keys shaped like a sonic screw driver would be cool, if i had intentions of buying a car... my probably-ENFJ son has declared a box we've painted blue to be the TARDIS, so there's that...

    i like doctor who but i've never being much to fiction-related memorabilia tbh.

    The first thing that came into my mind is ENTP. The person I was wondering about has probably done this from his late 20s. I have watched it in the past and liked it but it's really a bit of a silly/stupid show. I would have a hard time seeing an INTJ being a hardcore fan vs. something like StarTrek which is actually good quality.

    The attraction of the INFJ is to the ENTP/ENFP character of the latest doctors, and the friendly/almost-romantic relationship with their companions. I've seen it in multiple INFJ ladies.
