    That said, he screams Fi to me. ISFP?
    I thought he was an ISFJ because he reminded me of an ISFJ friend who LOVED repetition. Doing or saying the same things over and over again every day and never getting tired of it is what struck me about Mister Rogers. Routine and repetition... and that's what he tried to provide for the children who watched his program. I think he was an ISFJ.

    I can see ISFJ more clearly than INFP or INFJ. I just don't see N in him. It's kind of N-centric to insist that someone has to be N to do what he did.

    He hated television. HATED it. And yet, he still realized what he could do with it.

    I don't identify with him at all

    Not that I don't like him.. but I think I prefer Mr. Robinson instead.

    ISFJ. Kind of stereotypically ISFJ male, right?

    I can also see some INFPs strongly identifying with Mister Rogers, or idolizing him as a child, because of his pronounced Si (ours tertiary>>>tert temptation).

    My impression is ISFJ just because I understand ISFPs to have a certain vivaciousness that is less subdued and structured than their J counterparts. I think of Maria from the Sound of Music to be an ISFP being alone in nature and feeling great wonder, but getting in trouble for missing meals and being unstructured. Mr Rogers emits safety, harmlessness, and predictability. He is a safe and loving figure for children, and even Koko the gorilla idolized him and wanted to meet him. To me that seems more like Fe because it is about how he makes others feel, and not a lot of focus on his own feelings or passions.

    He really seems INFP to me, the little imaginary land and everything on top of his basic personality. INFP men sometimes have a certain "fragility" to them that ISFJs don't, IME. I think ISFJs are more likely to fit a more masculine stereotype despite their supposedly effeminate personality type. An INFP generally doesn't give a rat's ass about conforming to gender norms.

    I can usually tell the diff between an INFP and an ISFJ male pretty easily (because I prefer ISFJ despite my own NF-ness). I could be wrong, though.

    You can learn to provide routine (which children usually crave) and repetition (rote learning has always been popular) for children by being educated. That doesn't make him an ISFJ. INFPs also have tert Si, btw.
