    What does that have to do with being INFP?

    In my opinion, INFJ too serious minded and more reverent to be that impish. (That's not a criticism!) INFP more often a pot stirrer for the sake of shaking things up to make people react.

    INFP isn't a bad guess. He seems distinctly introverted when not performing, and I can see an NF quality to him. SO bizarre to think about in relation to his character, though.

    Well, in qualitative analysis, I don't know why that would be the case. The only thing I could figure is that maybe Fe iwould make someone too afraid to disturb the environment?

    But then in quantitative analysis, I have found INFJs can be pretty ridiculous. My brother is a good example of a highly irreverent INFJ. Further more, if it had to do with Fe, it wouldn't explain why ENFJs, who are more Fe oriented, can be so wacky and rabble-rousing. (which I have found many to be). So I have not noticed the trend myself.

    No, I wouldn't place it on Fe verses Fi. It's more about feeling dom with thinking in the basement verses being an INFJ with Ti being in the teritary childlike position, lents a more serious minded persona. INFP has Si in the playful slot. ENFJ has Se there. Play with the enviroment and other's perceptions rather than playing with thoughts and concepts.

    He's not an extrovert. If you dig up his history...he's an introvert who literally forced himself into extroversion. He's the introverted geek who managed to find his niche.

    I'd go with INTP...6w5 so/sp

    I'd agree with this. He's an INFP playing an ESFJ. It comes out from time to time and you cant tell hes a total sweetheart irl.

    For what it's worth, note his obsession with nerd hobbies. He knows Tolkien's mythology to a rather disturbing depth; he keeps up on the latest videogames; he knows reams about Star Trek.

    It's not just familiarity. This is real INxP info-drowning.

    ^ Doesn't everyone base their life philosophy on one of the Star Trek series, whichever one suits them best?
