    Anyone have any suggestions? My guess is INFP.

    What's your reasoning for INFP?

    Definitely ISFJ, without question.

    Why's everyone going with I? It's been a while since I saw the movie, but I recall him as pretty darn sociable. Most of the movie is him sitting on a bench and talking about his personal life to any stranger who sits beside him!

    I think he's either ISFJ or ESFJ. BlankPages raised a very good point with Forrest being so chatty with strangers.

    I'm also entirely puzzled by the INFP suggestion. He always talked about concrete things, telling his life stories, blah blah blah. He also seems to have that stereotypically Si/Fe or Fe/Si sense of duty, honor, and loyalty. He always did the right thing, despite his relative lack of intellect whatever intelligence he had was focused into things like serving his country and protecting Jenny. Forrest appeared to have a great deal of respect for his mother's prescribed morality and the social institutions of his country, as well as being a very openly caring or "others centered" individual.

    ^^Yep.
    an INFP would constantly be asking himself Why do I desire this? Are these braces not really fetters? What cosmic forces have lead me to this impasse? Do my mother's beliefs reflect a universal moral imperative, or simply social conditioning? If life is truly similar to a box of chocolates, what does it say about the nature of chance, and the pursuit of pleasure?

    Yeah, I can't image him having those thoughts.

    Yes, he knows exactly what is the right thing to do from externalized, measurable standards (Fe). I also don't see any evidence of him pondering theory to any significant extent, though his little bursts of inspiration to do new things or change the course of his path could easily be tertiary or inferior Ne. He appears to have the linear thought of Si, and seems more inclined to "do" than to "ponder" which could be another argument for him being ESFJ. Aside from the fact that he is intellectually slow, he is a walking stereotype of SFJ. He is lovable. America's hero, even. Like a kindly police officer, stopping Watergate, saving his friend's life, keeping promises, all without a trace of any sort of STJ authoritarianism.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure now he's ESFJ.

    I have to admit I totally love Forrest Gump. I think it's one of the sweetest movies ever, and I love the soundtrack.
