    No, being an ST would require his Sensing and Thinking functions to be oriented in opposite directions. They are not (he's Ti Si rather than Ti Se), and so he's an NT type. A more coherent SP with similar characteristics would be Torres, but Torres is more gut-based. Lightman relies entirely on experience and training for his deductions.

    I don't know much about this show, but the character in question could be a INTP that's Ti Si rather than Ti Ne, in fact, Ti doms are sometimes called THINKING types(ENTPs and INTJs being INTUITIVE types for example).

    His Ne attitude could be weak and if he does display a largely Ti dom attitude but has what seems an Si attitude rather than Se aux attitude, he could be a INTP stuck in a Ti Si loop. The problem with typing fictional characters is that sometimes their personalities are very inconsistent or don't neatly fit within jungian typology. Their personalities can be a combination of many different contradictory influences from their creators or several different writers working on the character.

    I've been considering it, and I actually think Lightman is an ISTP, rather than a non-intuitive INTP. His plans are quite Ni, and he's very good at pushing people's buttons -- which I originally thought was Fe, but Se makes much more sense given that Fe is inferior for either type. Se-aux makes more sense than an inferior Fe stronger than his auxiliary Ne.
