    He just sorta seems that way to me. But like I said, I could be wrong and it's just that he's grown tired of people.

    What makes him INTP to me are:

    His calmness--Textbook there, as he doesn't get riled unless his PRINCIPLES are directly attacked. He doesn't care what you say about the man himself.

    His mannerisms--The way he carries himself and the look in his eyes are classic introvert characteristics, and I would say INTP characteristics. His eyes have more energy than the rest of his body in sum.

    His rationality--He understands both sides of issues, and realizes he's going to piss people off no matter what he says/does.

    Elimination, naturally--No other type fits without trouble (this is admittedly personalized, and I choose not to attempt to explain it as it would take hours)

    Well-defended, Jack Flak.

    The "mannerisms" part makes the most sense to me.

    McCain was clenching his jaws every 3 seconds last night. He is trying to be calm but that is not who he is. He cared when his wife teased him about his hairline and called her a cunt in front of reporters. I believe he is an ISTP. He screams sensor to me.

    In addition to being intelligent, well informed and just overall fab, Obama looked very nice last night. I love a man who can wear a nicely tailored suit.

    Specific exceptions don't make the rule invalid. I've been pissed off too. For example, I imagine both McCain and myself have equal disdain for Obama--A walking violation of our principles.

    I read this article on Barack Obama last month.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/04/us...=1&oref=slogin
    On the cusp of becoming the first African-American to capture a major party nomination, Mr. Obama remains a protean political figure, inspiring devotion in supporters who see him as a transformative leader even as he remains inscrutable to critics.

    He has the gift of making people see themselves in him and offers an enigmatic smile when asked about his multiracial appeal.

    “I am like a Rorschach test,” he said in an interview with The New York Times. “Even if people find me disappointing ultimately, they might gain something.”
    PROTEAN is my word!!!

    That man is an ENFJ!!
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I'd also like to raise my vote towards ENFJ for Obama.

    McCain is mysterious to me. I was sold on ESTJ after last night, but stress can often modify otherwise-normal traits...

    Re: McCain: INTP/ISTP video comparison. Note the ISTP being distracted by his senses, and the INTP distracted by thoughts.

    YouTube - Socionics video - ISTp

    YouTube - INTP
