    ISTJ. Ni has too much of an "illogical," right-brained quality to fit Spock, so I can't really see him as an INTJ.

    Ah, but theoretically, Si and Ni are both left-brained.

    I think INTJ because he looks for the more elusive meaning in human behavior, where the ISTJ is more accepting. Te is what can make both types conscientious and rule-bound -- sort of like policemen.

    I think he's more dominated by Te than anything else, which in theory, would make him an ExTJ.

    In terms of the FFM, Spock does lean toward a High Openness (which corresponds to N) and High Conscientiousness (which corresponds to J). When those two factors mix, the N's creativity could cancel itself out with the stuffiness of J, resulting a desire to intellectualize.

    Does MBTI even apply to non-humans? Surely we need a new type. IVTJ for him.

    I would go for ISTJ. Spock is all rules and regulations and Vulcan traditions. In addition, he is very detail -oriented.

    This should be a poll, because I just want to state an opinion without having to waste the time to [futilely] support it.

    (He is ISTJ, btw. But I will compromise on IVTJ if I have to.)

    Wouldn't Spock reasonably be Ti dominant, since that is the processing of logic? If that is the case then he is either INTP or ISTP. Based on the descriptions, INTP wins hands down. He wouldn't be Ni dominant (INTJ) or Si dominant (ISTJ) would he?

    I was on another 'type' board, and you all are much more fun here!
    I loved this thread!!! Awesome.

    I always had a crush on Spock when I was a girl (I am 38...yeah, yeah..getting old I know)...
    And even as a woman I have a very strong magnetic draw straight to ISTJ's.
    I have to vote ISTJ...
    ISTJ's make me feel a sense of being grounded and safety.
    Like no matter what happened, if I were by their side I would come out okay.
    They rock.

    Seems this board is very lacking of them....sadly. I enjoy their wit.

    Yeah, I think INTP is also a possibility. I actually considered that, too, but so many descriptions label him as J.

    But Spock is outwardly judging.

    (Imagine any IxTP -- they look totally different, they are completely floating and laid back, while Spock is extremely structured, self-controlled, precise. It's very difficulty to make a case for Spock to be a P. His IxxJ reading is probably the most obvious thing about him.)

    If Spock is outwardly judging (Te, most likely, despite his sometimes moralistic stance -- he is impersonal, not personal), then his inner world must be Ni or Si.

    Then again, he's not human. Can we type him as a human?

    Hey, don't sweat it, sis -- we 38-year-olds have to stick together!
