Well i've never proclaimed to be an expert at typing people, i just thought the type/info given was a little off IMO.
The site provides a single quote from the pictured celebrity as a kind of evidence maybe. For Spielberg, it's "We all have to be more active in our groups, communities, religions ... We have a duty ... to work to fix the world." And according to someone, this speaks more to the ESFJ call than any other type. There's the SJ Guardian, for one element that stands out in the quote.
"I absorb energy like a sponge everywhere I go. It allows me to see the world and my purpose in it." Zak Bagans, Ghost Adventures (INFJ)
The best way to learn types if from examples. Not everyone wants to force their opinion though, some people want the most common answer so they can try to understand Jung more as x type and get on the same page as everyone else. This won't mean they can't get more information or that their answer is thereby correct, obviously I was partly kidding, but it has some benefits.
Actually, what's wrong with giving him multiple types? I don't think Jung ever said type couldn't change. He developed his types as psychological tools for his analytical psychology that he wanted to develop. He seemed to hope they would represent innate cognitive features, but he was never certain on that. I think in the end he just saw something that didn't change very easily and felt that was good enough to use.
Arguing one type throughout his whole life is like trying to sum up someone's entire life with a statement. How is this a good idea?
He never gave any indications through writings or words that he thought he was INFJ, did he? Where is the evidence, given directly from the horse's mouth? That's what matters.
If you read my original post, you'll see that there's evidence that he allegedly claimed that he was an introverted intuitive shortly after the BBC interview.

Since when does "having definite problems with feeling" equal "not Fe aux or dom"?
I know plenty of F dom's and aux's who have definite problems with feeling.
You're basing your interpretation on ungrounded assumptions that happen to support your desired interpretation.
