    I could see Stringer as an ESTP also. ENTJs and ESTPs can look alike. He just seemed a little too sedate to be an ESTP.

    I saw that as tertiary Fe, and felt that he was actually better around people than you give him credit for, he was just influencing people with Ne most of the time, as I saw it. I see Fe, as interactions and negotiation on an emotional level between people.
    I think he's good around people, just that his personal values are more important to him than the values of others. Allowing a murderer to get in his car with his kids and then making his tired and scared kids wait in a police station while he questioned said murderer is just one example. Using his kids to follow a drug kingpin and then losing them is another. His values come first, and he seems to run on pure "gut" reactions with little or no thought to the outcome of the situation or what is good for other people. He's a thrill-seeker who is married to his job and the sense of purpose it gives him.

    I could never see him as an ENTP.

    Hmm... alcoholism probably is responsible for a lot of that, and on second thought I think he might be too single-minded about catching criminals to be any sort of normal P, but J doesn't seem to fit either. I'm not sure anymore.

    Also:
    D'Angelo - ISFJ
    Avon - some sort of F

    I definitely see D'Angelo as an IxFx. For me, it's harder to tell with introverted feelers. Avon totally seems ExFJ to me. He seems to lead with Fe.

    As far as McNulty, sensors tend to be seem more J-ish than their intuitive counterparts.

    I'm still leaning toward ESFP for him, but could also see ESTP although I don't think he has a well-developed Fe, or even Ti for that matter. And he just doesn't seem like he has a preference for T. He shows his explosive emotion way too often. But like I said, it's hard to tell with alcoholics - we can agree on that much.

    Kanamori, I think you are right on Avon's F, even though I didn't say it initially. His feeling is one of his strong contrasts to Stringer. I also think there's a divide between the two of them in terms of Sensing and Intuiting.

    I guess for Avon I might go into the xSFJ area.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Also, this is the first thread I ever started on this Forum, bumped back up on the exact day I have been a member for exactly one year! Coincidence?!

    Almost definitely.

    I grew really tired of McNulty toward the end. My guess is ESTP.
