    Alrighty. So I just read this book for the first time ??? in spite of the fact I believe it was assigned to me in highschool (I must have somehow merely winged the coursework /enfp)...and while yes...I did consider Holden an INFP for say...the first 5 pages...that certainly didn't last. And now I believe I am one of the only people on the planet that believes Holden is an ISTP. Actually...there are a few people arguing for ISTP in this thread but it appears most people think he is INFP (some even agrue for some sort of depressed ENFP) and I just don't see it. Okay...so I guess that is all I wanted to say. Just wanted to acknowledge somewhere that I finally read this 'goddamn book'.

    I thought he was ISTP too. But yeah, favorite book of all time. Couldn't put it down. Need to read it again!

    Holden had a very live and let live attitude from what I renenber he was an existentialist. I would think maybe that he was an IxTP

    Holden Caulfield a thinker?
    I just don't see it. ENFP is logical (I guess), but I vote INFP.

    Well more like what we would now consider a blatent stereotype of the cynical INFP. If indeed that is his type....

    The annoying thing about him as a character, regardless of his type, is I dislike him for his flagrant hypocrisy. All he does is whine and bitch about the 'phoniness' of those around him while being no less of one himself.

    I read the book but its been many years. He could be INFP but when I read it I kept thinking ISTP. Cynicism is usually a Ti thing in my experience. Pointing out "phoniness" is quite Ti too. Hm...
