    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!
    I don't know anything about Spock, but I can tell you this:

    I have a friend who grew up in the kid version of the military; crew cut every 2 weeks, total IxxJ (or so I thought). He gave off very NT vibed interests, and I could talk to him well, but I knew he wasn't an INTJ by just knowing. I assumed ISTJ.
    He got tested: total 100% INTP. (He's hooked on MBTI too now.) Both his parents were xxxJ and so household + military = an INTP look like a IxxJ.

    We sure as heck can try. For all we know he may be the Vulcan version of an extrovert? Or, the totally laid back take it as it comes version? He did tolerate Kirk all those years. Not sure I could.

    Yeah, the whole non-human bit is new territory for MBTI.

    Has everyone forgotten? Spock is half-human!

    Spock was rather inconsistently written as a generic super-intelligent thinker. He could literally be anything and mask it entirely. Part of the Vulcan training is to completely suppress emotions, which will severely skew how he appears on the outside.

    Remember what happened to his father when the ability to maintain absolute control of his mind had gone?

    I don't think he's an ISTJ.

    Probably ISTJ, with a highly developed N.

    The Spock of the television series was an ISTJ who changed into an INTJ in the movies. Similar to--though not as extreme as--the evolution of Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader.

    Since Vulcans have much longer lifespans than Earthlings, it's conceivable that their thought processes could, as a natural part of Vulcan development, evolve from Sensorish during youth to Intuitive in middle adulthood.

    And yes, I'm quite comfortable referring to myself and you other forumites, as "Earthlings."

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    Spock is half-human, but he tries to repress that side of him... as with his emotions. He is very bent on the rules and regulations of things, which would lean more towards ISTJ. However, I'm not sure this would be entirely accurate for him. I'd almost suggest ISFJ with a strong suppression of his feelings based on his upbringing. *arches eyebrow slightly*

    I have always seen Spock as INTJ.

    This are serious thread? I thought the consensus was INTP. Perceptive, objective, logical, calm, unneedy, etcetera, etcetera...

    I am more interested in his enneagram type.

    Could someone help me with that? 5w4?

    Also,

    Could people (or anyone) have qualities of both wings even though one tends to be more inclined towards one specific wing?

    Ex : - A 5w6 with enneagram 4 qualities?

    Also,

    I believe it is high time I but some enneagram related books. Any recommendations?
