gearing more off topic then i meant (this thread has potential merit) so...
onto spoiler mode:
surprised you say that, since i actually thought he's... well, an ESTJ *points at EJCC's mbti tag*
i don't remember him ever being the "i have a vision" kind of guy, more of keeping with his own strong value system and intended vision of the federation, usually follows procedures to the detail, quite often bringing historical anecdotes of how some past war was won. the only time he breaks the chain of command is when he doesn't feel it follows the values the federation was built on. when he has a personal mission or vendetta he sort of relives it - everything comes back to it & nothing will steer him from it... then his personality climaxed in the last movie where he fall in love with the concept of stopping time, which i thought was a good homage to the spirit he brought in.
yeah, i don't understand why descriptions of ENFPs always make this type sound like it's a bubbly, fun-living type. that's not who i am at the bottom of it all, it's just a façade that i may choose to put on if i want something from people (information, interest in me, etc)
edit: actually i dont see myself like that but people usually tell me i'm friendly and energetic so...maybe it's an outside perspective?! ghargh!
Well, this thread inspired me to give it the good 'ol college try. I'm starting with Bjork because it seems like the most fun option.

Sometimes I feel that way. I'm no Einstein and most INTPs aren't but sometimes I don't even feel that intellectual. I don't spend all my time reading philosophy or doing high level math. Sometimes I just don't get things and sometimes I don't care about some some theory. I care too much what other people think of me and I'm not completely indifferent to popular culture.

I'm INFP and whilst I agree with my typing the descriptions are awful. Perhaps what others perceive me as in real life is close to the descriptions my perception of myself isn't. I am sarcastic, vindictive and I don't really care about the needs of others for the most part (doing things for others comes as a temporary reaction to brief internal spells of guilt.) I am often cynical and I very rarely give others compliments. Also I don't consider myself a very good listener or valuable friend: I will listen only if it does not interrupt me and I blow others off when it suits me and go through short periods of interest in those around me which are usually surrounded by longer periods of apathy. None of them seem to care so that's no big deal.
Inside I am dark, bleak and even sadistic. I am quite the meanie even if it isn't expressed.
Addendum: I really hate being described as irrational and emotional in the descriptions too. I am for the most part not outwardly or inwardly emotional and I do put a lot of sustained energy into being logical and rational.
Not really. I recognize the stereotype and hyperbole in many of the descriptions, and feel neither limited by it, nor compelled to live up to it. It is merely one window on my gifts and limitations, what I can capitalize on and what needs work.
this is well-said, and I feel the same way. luckily no one else in my life has gotten into MBTI and asked me what my type is. then I'd feel differently.
