    IdrA - ESTJ
    iNcontrol - ESTP
    day9 - ENFP
    Artosis - INTP
    NaNiWa - ISTJ

    It seems that all IdrA is ever good for is BM, balance complaining, and consistently losing to Koreans.

    Based on an extensive MBTI & Starcraft study I found, I would say that he is almost certainly INTJ along with most of the other players

    However, Zergs were slightly more likely to be INTP

    It seems that all IdrA is ever good for is BM, balance complaining, and consistently losing to Koreans.
    He is a phenomenal caster and analyzer. Based on his nonexistent performance, I would expect more of this in the future. His understanding of the game is beyond what you see from most casters

    Starcraft players and casters that come to mind:

    IdrA: INTJ
    Artosis: INTP
    Day9: _NTP. Despite his extraversion, I think he's probably INTP. He seems inferior-Fe, and Ti-dom seems plausible.
    Husky: ISTP
    Tasteless: Maybe ISTP? I don't know him that well.

    The only person I can think of who could be an F is Tyler.

    Ugh. Where are you guys getting NTJ for IdrA? He's classic ESTJ, and just about the biggest D-bag in sc2. Also, how can you think that both day9 and Artosis are INTP?

    A player that I really do think is INTJ is col.Catz.

    As for Husky, I think he's ESTP.

    Here's some more players:

    White-Ra - ESFP
    LosirA - ESTP
    MVP - ISTP
    Drewbie - ISFJ
    QXC - ENFJ
    Stefano - INFP
    JinrO - ISTP
    HuK - ISFP
    DeMuslim - INTP
    Tyler - ISTP
    TLO - ISFJ
    Destiny - ESTJ

    Notice that troll/BM potential is overrepresented in ESTx players.

    Husky's much more introverted than his casting persona. In the second TGS podcast, when asked why he's being so quiet, he mentions how he naturally "conserves his energy". He talks about how he'll lie dormant in a conversation until a topic he's interested in comes up, and how at events he spends most of his time alone. I don't really remember the wording but for everyday conversation it sounded strikingly similar to descriptions of mtbi introversion.

    As for Day9, have you seen his 100th Daily? The incident he mentioned where he trashed his room, and the lesson he shared about learning not to be scared and suspicious of your emotions, as if they were alien and dangerous (possibly from a different Daily) makes me think he's inferior-Fe. I'd probably have guessed ENTP before.

    Why do you think he's ENFP? I can't see him as anything other than NTP.

    I don't see any of that as inconsistent with extraversion, particularly if it's in an In-Charge person.

    I don't think any of that is good evidence for type. I think it's better to look at the whole personality rather than random, largely irrelevant details like that. Plus, did it not occur to you that the fact that he was talking about his emotions at all is pretty F? I'd never imagine someone like, say, IdrA getting that personal if he did what day9 does (which is why he'd probably be a big time failure at it.)

    1. He clearly has a GtG (get things going) interaction style. I don't think that's debatable, and that alone rules out INTP, or any other introverted type.
    2. He seems oriented to people more than things, which indicates F over T.
    3. He's super idealistic about esports, which is why he's seen as being an inspiring pioneer of the field.
    4. He seems to do that NF thing where they view life in narrative fashion. If nothing else, the man loves to tell entertaining (and sometimes very personal) stories. He's even been known to tear up!

    Oh, and this isn't as solid, but IME the difference between ExTPs and ExFPs (who all seem to be inclined to a sort of obnoxiousness, to varying degrees) is usually that the latter are goofy and largely non-offensive while the former have a tendency to be trolls. Day9 would certainly fit the goofy, non-offensive type, which is why he's universally liked.

    Seriously, how do you tell what MBTI type a player/caster is? Is this based on interviews or their playing style?

    I get more of an INTJ vibe though from, IdrA. Granted, I don't actually know many ESTJs so it's possible I just am reading Te as Ni+Te. Hmm. I guess he does remind me of a guy I use to climb with that was an ESTJ and a real prick. He'd always complain about the rock being chalked up (when he'd fall) etc. and throw a big fit whenever he couldn't finish a route. He also didn't want to hang out with certain people in the group because they weren't skilled enough. That seems a little similar to IdrA so possibly?

    I've found Te, Ti, Se, and Si really overrepresented as the dominant function in the people I've met into playing SC2. I almost never meet NF players and if I do they typically are ENFx men. I've met quite a few ISFJs into playing but never any INFJs which I find a bit odd. I've found also that most female SC2 gamers are typically xSTP and they are generally pretty damn good but very competitive (read: not very friendly). I'd be really surprised if there were any INFP progamers.

    Koreans are hardcore. I remember reading a story of that one kid who died playing SC in an internet cafe. His body literally failed, because he was binging on the game. lol
