After watching homer Simpson today (simpsons movie), I would like to challenge Peter Griffins type. Homer is an ESFP (I think most people agree with that?) and when I try to compare him to an ENFP typing of Peter, just doesnt feel right. Ti vs Fi is what I'm talking about.
I have had very up close observations of a confirmed ESTP for the past year. I dont know what peter's dominant function is, but I think Peter is a Ti user and not a Fi user. He just doesn't seem to have that "this is unconscionable" Fi moments that even Homer Simpson has. When I think about the extroverts who use Ti that I know, they do things more like Peter would do than Homer would do. I know Ti is often associated with being smart and I think that's why people cant accept peter as a Ti user. However, I think he just might be a really REALLY DUMB Ti user and that is where A LOT of the humor lies.
Homer is very able to clarify his values and realize when something is unconscionable. Peter seems to spend more time trying to engage in narcissism and over compensatory maleness that I expect from EXTPs. Its true that someone like Ashton kutcher has moments of dumb scheming, narcissism and overcompensation maleness, but he still has that fluffiness that people expect from an ENFP. Peter just strikes me as being a really really dumb T.
Before we tear down the idea based on the previous 12 pages, can we explore this possibility a little bit?
