    Wonderful clip of Mister Rogers talking to Congress when Nixon tried to cut funding for PBS:

    I agree with Fi dom at the very least.

    That is a fantastic video. It made me a little giddy to see him talking so calmly and explaining himself and what his program did and sounding no different as if he were speaking to the children who used to watch his show. XD

    I think you've been reading too many forwarded emails. He never served in the military, and had no tattoos. I just watched an episode with my son where he rolls up his sleeve to get a flu shot, and there were no tattoos to be seen. And he had a great fondness for children. He was being himself on the TV show. Everything I've read about him and by him suggests this. Fi is very concerned with authenticity.
    Well then I certainly stand corrected. Now that I think about it, I can't remember where I heard or read about that stuff... Awesome. He's still fantastic and now, even more so.
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    I've thought that he was an ISFJ.
    He seems to structured and repetitive to be a P.

    I started watching his program 20 years ago when my daughter was young.
    He helped me with my own self-esteem issues.

    It's You I Like
    by Fred Rogers

    It's you I like,
    it's not the things you wear.
    It's not the way you do your hair,
    but it's you I like.
    The way you are right now
    the way down deep inside you
    not the things that hide you
    not your toys... they're just beside you.
    But it's you I like,
    every part of you,
    your skin, your eyes, your feelings,
    whether old or new.
    I hope that you'll remember even when you're feeling blue,
    that it's you I like,
    it's you yourself, it's you
    it's you I like!


    What a wonderful man.

    My initial thought was ISFJ as well but he doesn't seem to fit with the ISFJ's supposed functions (Si/Fe).

    Perhaps the greatest force for domestic good in the past 60 years.

    I love Mister Rogers. He was my first crush. I say infp.

    I love Mister Rogers too! I also think INFP, though I suck at typing people. He's just so accepting, like the INFPs in my life.

    His MBTI would probably say INFJ.

    I agree; he's one of my personal heroes. I've always read that he was INFP and I've never seen any reason to question that. I don't think he could pour his life into what he did without being an idealist (NF).

    I don't see why not. What do you think of this?

He's very, very tuned into the real fears and concerns of children (in a very Fi-Se way--almost everything he does seems to be identifying feeling tones about things that a person encounters in the real sensory world), and uses their language of pretend to help them deal with it.
