    Default espn sportswriter bill simmons

    what's his type? i have a tentative guess, but i'm interested in other opinions first? he's buddies with chuck klosterman and malcolm gladwell, which are good company.

    His dad's a classic INTP, that's for sure.

    The impression I've gotten from his writing is enfp: endless tunneling and tangents, but getting pretty well wrapped up emotionally to the point where it get's a bit tiring to read him.

    thinking of you

    Most of the tunneling and tangents regard lots of physical allusions and pop culture references, which is why I think ISFP. But, he could be E I guess too.

    "It's kinda like this other thing that happened and I am using exaggeration for powerful effect" to me is him trying to share his Se-experience style with the rest of us.

    I don't know what his type is, but I can tell you I disagree with him on a lot of his articles.

    He seems like an Extrovert. I think he has a pretty well developed social life and he holds social/people skills in very high regard. He also wants you to know that he hob-knobs with all the wealthy and powerful people out in LA. I won't comment on the other dichotomies because I don't really understand these that well.

    His dad is a retired school district superintendent, I believe. It's kind of sad that I know that. I've ready a few too many Simmons columns over the years.

    i thought infp, but the enfp arguments make a lot of sense to me too. i find him very perceptive, funny, and thoughtful, even if his columns tend to run together.

    id guess esfp

    he doesnt seem like an I to me cuz he seems to be really powerfully connected and such

    he doesnt strike me as an n cuz he always refers to himself as having a lot of "common sense" and his humor is always really down to earth and i rarely fail to understand it so S

    F.....just read any of his articles about any boston team

    P cuz he seems chill and he doesnt write all that regularly anymore lol

    bill simmons is an intuitive. constant cultural analogies, seeing associations and relevancy rankings for all cultural phenomena, and an inability to avoid Ne tangents at all times = N. and he's almost certainly Ne. i see Te at work, i think enfp is the most logical argument so far.
