Ok. So I watched that Charlie Rose interview again, and I think it's pretty apparent that-
1. his dominant function is a perceiving function.
2. He's fascinated with the idea of perception- how he is perceived and how to construct the interpretation of his life- like his life is that of a performance and he is a performing artist.
I noticed those things and then I read this:
I'm going to say, yes, I think this is his dominant function. He's way more into playing with concepts (Ni) than he is with considering the possibilities (Ne) or just living life as is (se).Introverted Intuition
p. 222: "...draws our attention to immediate sensory phenomena. ... It prompts an interest in perception itself--the process of recognizing and interpreting what we take in."
p. 223: "Introverted Intuition would prompt us to liberate our sense impressions from their larger context, thereby creating new options for perception itself."
As a dominant function:
p. 225: "Where Extraverted Intuitives see many behavioral options, INJs acknowledge many conceptual standpoints. They experience no need to declare one inherently better than another. Indeed, these types have the disconcerting habit of solving a problem by shifting their perspective and defining the situation some other way."
Also, Fe does seem a preference more than Fi.
So I'm agreeing with you, @Lady X. INFJ.
I think sometimes dominant perceivers can be easy to confuse if you aren't a dominant perceiver yourself, speaking as not one. I knew I should take the opinions of those who are, so that's why I gave it more thought.
It was bugging me, because he does seem introverted and I just couldn't make sense of it.
