    Default MythBusters



    Jamie Hyneman: INTJ
    Adam Savage: ISTP
    Others Characters: I don't know

    Actually I think that show is a pure SP/NT connection, like Jackass who meets Mr Wizard.

    I'm with Night on this one. Especially on Adam - if he's actually like he is on the show, he's the most ENTP-ish ENTP I've met (and I have/had a couple of very good ENTP friends). He definitely brings the zany-fun to the show.

    I always thought Tori was the least interesting character (person would be the more "humanizing" term, I suppose) on the show. Perhaps this is because his S negatively stands out in a cast of mostly Ns?

    I think Jamie's x is an N. He doesn't seem to to have the Si-dom approach of gathering loads of information to establish a norm. He seems to have a few Ni intuitive "guesses."

    Other than that, I agree with the post I've quoted.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Yeah, up until a little while ago, I always pegged Jamie as an INTJ. Someone recently made a convincing argument that his attention to safety/tried-and-tested personal approach to problem solving were hallmark characteristics of Si.

    Doesn't necessarily mean that the description was true, or that these de facto components overlap N traits in terms of importance. Just that he seems to have a good balance of tradition with abstraction.

    While I don't at all disagree with the possibility that he could be ISTJ, INTJ simply appears more likely.

    He's sort of OCD in a way I associate with Ni doms, though.

    It's a tough call. Part of the problem is that they have to edit Jamie's stuff so much that we may not be quite getting an accurate portrayal of him.

    Agreed. In terms of function preference, much of what he does gives me the impression of an xNTJ mindset.

    I've noticed that, too.

    The INTJs I know rarely fumble for words or humor. Jamie seems to have difficulty with both (at least insofar as his television personality behaves).

    Good point - the INTJs I've known are at least very good at recalling a database of humor, if nothing else. Also, when I have noticed Jamie getting a really good joke in, it usually comes out of left field in an Ne type manner.
