    I always typed it

    Adam ENTP

    Jamie INTJ

    I could be wrong though.

    I'm pretty sure that Heyneman is an INTJ. Agree to type savage as ENTP. For the others characters, I trust you. Actually, I've post this thread just a few times afte have discovered that show.

    and there you have it.
    only tori might be introverted -- i think most of his enthusiasm is manufactured. he has the most macho look, so i think the director's encourage him to be more into the explosions than he actually is.
    adam on the other hand... he's not acting. you couldn't fake that.

    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.
    My intj spouse is that way, sometimes. If he's presented with a new problem, he first runs everything through his database of tried-and-true solutions, then, if nothing comes up, he's thrilled to find a new way to attack it. He digs intuitive jumping. But, since efficiency is high on his priority list, the *fastest* way to get the job done is the trump card. It's quickest to go with something he's already seen work well.

    The same can be said for safety. It's terribly inefficient (for future endeavors) to chop off one's fingers or lose an eye.

    That said, you can talk him out of any of his standard approaches if you make a convincing argument. He'll try anything as long as it makes sense (which is why the show has so much spark, I think...it consists largely of: can ENTP Adam come up with a convincing enough argument for his ridiculously innovative/bizzare idea to win over Jaime?)

    INTJs hang onto ideas for the sake of efficiency and success, but will toss them into the trash heap so fast it'll make your head spin, if you prove something else works better. They differ from Si in that they really lack stubborn holding of position, if you're clever enough to appeal to their logic.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    To me, both of them give an S feeling. I'd be more inclined to type Jamie ISTJ and Adam ESTP.

    Jamie - ISTJ

    Grant - INTP
    Tory - ISTP

    Agreed.

    Though I could also see how Jamie might be ENTJ and Tori ISTP.

    Really? Jamie as an ENTJ? Interesting. Anything in particular that leads you to this potential conclusion?

    Why N for Jamie instead of S? He's so orderly and detail oriented, and always focuses on what's practical first. Seems really present minded, but smart. Adam seems more of the abstract idea person of the two. Though I did think INTJ originally for Jamie.
