    I don't understand what you mean. I definitely think someone's personality can change over time. The Game essentially teaches men how to role-play as arrogant assholes to attract women. Some guys don't have to try as hard as others.

    EDIT: Which is of course still not INTP, at all. An INTP PUA would be Style.
    Style seems a lot more composed, objective, and rational than Mystery does, in my opinion.

    I'm not talking about The Game (though I disagree with your assessment of it), I'm talking about Mystery. He started as a nerd and developed an alter ego which ultimately changed his personality. This persona became a part of him, more than a simple mask.

    No doubt. I'm sure his own identity, in his mind, is congruent with his alter ego; but originally you could say that he was being fake. He set out to change himself and accomplished it. Despite his flaws and his goofy attire, I would be lying if I said I didn't admire him in the least.

    I'm not talking about his technique. I'm referring to unstable, manipulative behavior in general. I can't find what I was reading atm, but this link (just an Amazon review.. I know that's not the best reference right now) touches on some observations that another PUA (Style) made about him.

    That all said, it could just mean he's bi-polar or something. Not relevant, I guess.

    Is it why he wear the same coat than a Gun'n Roses guitarist?
    It seems to me that INTP/INTp who allow themselves to fall into a emo state occasionally like Mystery does are 5w4s. The 4 wing creates a romantic motivation when mixed with the T dom or Ti (in particular his acceptance and incorporation of the theory that replication/survival are the primary human motivations). I would also say he tends to take more "real world" chances (within a limited theoretical framework) than what would be in character with 5w6s.

    His views his clothing more as a costume to assist him to get into character as a Star/Rock Star to assist himself in maintaining congruency with a the character he fines most likely to get no strings attached sex quickly (i.e. as many rock stars on tour get). He "peacocks" for a reason. (i.e. his survival/replication which will somehow biochemically bring him happiness)

    Interesting, I'll look into it. Do you have any more information on his relationship with his father?

    That or Borderline personality disorder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    - Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment.

    - A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation.

    - Identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.

    - Impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., promiscuous sex, eating disorders, binge eating, substance abuse, reckless driving).

    - Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, threats or self-injuring behavior such as cutting, interfering with the healing of scars (excoriation) or picking at oneself.

    - Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days).

    - Chronic feelings of emptiness

    - Inappropriate anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights).

    - Transient, stress-related paranoid ideation, delusions or severe dissociative symptoms

    Mystery is a 5w6, not a 5w4. He's too much focused and the techical and practical side to be a 5w4, plus, he've not the melancholic/aristocratic side that 5w4 often display.

    His story is the story odf the sensitive and uncool nerd who gain social skills by studying social dynamics and a logical basis and figure out the underlying principles that they rely on. Of course he's INTP, and if he's concerned with peoples (inferior Fe), he's not concerned with ethic, not Fi so. He's also an Sx/So, he illustrate very well that instinctual stacking.

    He's an emofag, that's why. He's actually neither, he's a 4w3 sappy romantic who has strong analytical skills due to being Ni-Te.

    That's only half of the story, the other half being that he is an overemotional, egocentric and histrionic mess. Not an Fe by any means, much less an F-inferior.
