I heard: chauvenistic male-pig, serious-humorless, reserved and cold/unfriendly.

    I'm going with INTJ.
    I've heard he is reserved in person when not performing. I suspect he is an introvert. I think INTJ may be right also.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    you think dominant Ni more than dominant Te? i also focus on more tertiary Se than Fi, which has has none of whatsoever. Fi types have a strong feeling attachment to various things that guides their Te, a very deep cutting undercurrent.

    he definitely needs serious introversion time to get it back and pull it together. plus it seems like he hates people. possibly all people. possibly including himself. he scares me- on 30 rock i loooooved his character.

    i see inferior Fe rather than tertiary Fe. shopgirl is not intj. he has no feelings at all, and no soul. also the tertiary Se enj movement comedy.

    Why would you do something as difficult as figuring out what position F is in for SM, when you can do things as simple as determine what attitude F is, whether he is an introvert or an extrovert, etc.

    The more difficult you make the process, the more often you will be wrong.

    And BTW, SM does not extrovert feeling.

    You are attempting to type a performer based on characters he played?

    Very difficult. Why not take an easier path?

    BTW--"Wild and Crazy Guy" was deliberately created because it's 180 degrees away from what Martin actually is...

    that was a mistake- i meant Fi. and bc the whole matters. you can boil it down to one question and see it one way, but that doesn't make you right. Te dom can be a wide range of extroversion, but it's always Te. extroversion means something far different to me than it does to you. it does not just translate into publicity, or affability, or "outgoing"ness. it means your information processing capabilities are skilled at merging with the world, and you do your best/easiest/most natural work outside of yourself. it makes you faster at adapting, but worse at getting your shit together/organizing your past experience.

    also, it's off-topic, but your thought processes could not sound more istp. which is not a knock, just an observation related to your continual assertions that you are correct and everyone else is in fact wrong.

    If you believe this to be so, does this not make you question your competence at typing others and the process you use to reach your typings?
