    Oh lovely. Past jokes must amuse you. Dwell on it further. Interesting outcomes may arise.

    You can see the obvious inter-type tension between Brian and Stewie the entire show.
    Yup, it's just INTP/ENTP intertype tension...no INTJ involvement.

    Where are you people getting INTJ for Stewie? Building crazy inventions and making up evil plots doesn't mean he has to be INTJ. He's constantly getting distracted by amusing side interests, he rarely actually finishes any of his evil plans/inventions before moving on to new ones, and he's waaaay more sociable and outgoing than any INTJ I've ever met.

    Anyone who's ever witnessed a close INTP+ENTP friendship in real life should recognize the same dynamic between Brian and Stewie.

    Stewie is the classic ENTP inventor that has Ne-oriented crazy schemes.

    ESFJs are very in charge when it comes to their private familial and social obligations...especially if they don't think anyone else is competent enough to make sure things go as planned. And when it comes to the Griffin family, you can't blame Lois for thinking that's the case.

    I don't really see Ni. ENFJs tend to project their Fe toward broad-reaching social causes that affect humanity on a larger scale, while ESFJs pay more intensive attention to their own personal friends and families. Lois seems to fit the latter category quite aptly.

    Uhh...where do you get Te from? She's constantly concerned with her social image, upholding familial obligations and setting aside her own feelings in favor of what's best for the group. Not that ESTJs never do these things, it's just that Lois approaches them from a pretty typical Fe standpoint. If she's made up her mind that something is out of sync with the values that are important to her family/community, it doesn't matter whether or not "it works"; she's going to protest. Her loyalties are more personally than institutionally oriented. She's the classic Fe matriarch.

    Where is Te?

    It's just incredibly Ne, all the time. Why do you assume he's an S? Because he's an idiot?
    ENFP's don't even do that. He's just telling stories, not living in the past/future or anything. Also, everything he talks about is humorous and almost always based on something he's done.

    He's an ESFP because he's impulsive, in the moment, a joker, everyone has to like him, and he has to be the center of attention.

    fail

    "Impulsive", "in the moment", "joker", "everyone has to like him" and "he has to be the center of attention" are all very typical for all four E__P types, and especially E_FP. None of these points to Se over Ne in any way.

    There is, however, quite a lot of evidence for Peter's dominant Ne. If you intend to argue for ESFP, you need to explain what you think he does that's indicative of Se, not just list a bunch of typical E__P traits.

    Peter constantly lives in a fantasy world. He's so ENFP it's not even funny.

    And seriously? You're claiming that ENFPs don't jump from topic to topic relating everything in the current context to other unrelated contexts that the current one reminds them of? This is prototypical Ne dominant behavior. Claiming that ENFPs don't do it is like saying ISTJs don't like being prepared.

    See this is essentially why we disagree on everything sim. Si, from my research ( ) is simply about latching on to a paradigm. That is all.

    If Si people lived in a world where being prepared was non-reinforced, uncool and un-respected, then Si people would be less organized. This is exactly what older Si people comment on the younger Si's today. Im not about to go on a teasure hunt, but even older Si people on here have commented on how the younger Si's differ.

    Si of old had a lot of preparedness involved because that was the paradigm. Seriously, talking to your grandparents and its obvious that yesteryear was a preparedness culture. Everyone was expected to have slacks for xyz event, jeans maybe if you did ytf, more casual slacks for fdsd and etc etc... People took god damn forever to pack and plan out what was appropriate. Today, its probably a lot easier to be an SJ, because the the preparedness expected of people is so much less. You could just pack a pair of jeans and no one would care....

    ^ Si, as I understand it, is more about wanting to relate new information to other information that's already known and understood from past experience...to find its place on an "internal map" in relation to what's already known.

    Combined with Te's penchant for sequential planning and preparation, it's pretty obvious ISTJs in general prefer being prepared.

    That said, you're right that there's a difference between older and younger SJs, but as far as I can tell it's related mostly to traditionalism. In the older generations, information wasn't so readily available, so often the only known information was the family/religious/social tradition that had been passed down through generations, leading a lot of older SJs toward traditionalism because it was the only thing they knew.

    Today you can gain an informational background on lots of things before attempting to do them, just by looking them up on the internet. I agree that it's much easier to be an SJ now, but SJs don't value preparedness any less than they used to...they're just no longer staunchly traditionalist. They still very much like to have stored information on something ahead of time so that they can relate new information to what's already known.
