    Default The fictional Larry David

    There is the real man Larry David, and there is his fictional persona on "Curb".

    what would you say is his "fictional persona" type?

    I think it's INFJ. (Also I think the persona on "Curb" is not too different from the real Larry David.)

    I don't disagree with the NFJ assessment (I was kinda thinking ENFJ).
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I can agree with that. His compulsive eccentricities definetly point to an NFJ personality.
    I would say he is more of an I than an E, though. Although I's can be social (particularly us elusive INFJs), they aren't nearly as open as E types. Larry strikes me as very secretive, and closed off to all but a few people . He is not prone to just make friends with strangers, in fact, he usually distrusts people until he knows them better---an I trait

    He was also the person that george Costanza was based on, and I would type George as an NF

    I could definitely see him as a very frustrated ENTJ.

    For a moment I thought this thread was going to claim that he was not a real human being. That Jerry wrote his own stuff, or something like that.

    As inconsiderate as he usually is, he is hardly a feeler.

    ENTP. I think David himself is likely INTP, but he probably doesn't have as many interesting conversations IRL.
