    Womanizers? If they are good looking, perhaps.
    Who love jetting around the world? ENTP's, sure.
    Shooting up foreigners? ENTP's, sure.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    ok dude, I will just have take your word for it that NASA is filled with reckless, action-man playboys whose personality resembles Stark from Iron Man, and not highly theoretical physics geeks as I would have expected.

    You learn something new every day I guess.

    You took what I said WAY out of context. I said NASA was filled with NT's, not playboys. But, some of those NT's are going to be ENTP's - some of which will be good looking and have the playboy mentality. Just because NT's are smart doesn't mean they can't get women or that they can't be suave.

    I totally see where you're coming from in regards to Stark's playboy persona. Heck, maybe he's ESTP for all I know. I just don't see ESTP's hanging out in that "sphere" of society all that often. The ESTP's I know are middle management, construction, low-tech government, etc. I don't see ESTP's making space suits and discovering new elements. I'm not saying they aren't capable of it or that there aren't some doing it, I'm just saying it doesn't really fit what I've seen in real life.

    Tony Stark is ESTP. Even my ESTP room mate, who is an engineer, has no issue saying that he is tony stark .

    Stark really wasnt that into discovering though. He spends most of his time playboying! He spent maybe an hour building a hadron colider and "Welding" away a new element. He does not spend very much time researching. He is extremely hands on. I would say Stark is closer to halla than oberon.

    Hey, what can I say, his Ti is only auxiliary!

    Tony Stark is a super-genius and therefore NTP!

    Well IRL I have known womanizing NT's and all the rest of it but certainly not in the way Stark was.

    These people defined themselves ultimately as intellectual. As I remember this was not at all Stark's defining feature, rather that he is an action-man who lives in the moment, i.e. the defining feature of an Se-dom.

    In the second one, he's even MORE S than the first one.

    If he wasn't actually shown as being extremely smart what would people type him as? You guys do realize that there have to be maybe a few anomalies to the "anyone who is exceptionally smart is an NT" right? Oh, never mind.
    I think the problem is that a lot of ENTPs on this forum believe that they have "strong Se". Even ENTJ makes more sense to me for stark (Te - Se).

    Look, I have an ESTP room mate who IS AN ENGINEER. He is very smart, does tons of crazy math and graduate classes etc. I would never, nor would he ever, agree with a Ne world view. Ne people are often risk takers because they just either dont know any better, or dont care to (ie inferior Si, wont save for a rainy day, wont worry about the future etc). Se people appear to be more risk takers because they believe they just are that much of a bad ass (im being serious). Stark seemed to fall more into the latter. I felt like I was watching a james bond movie (with the one liners etc). Not exactly "Ne = wit" ever went off in my head.

    I'm going agree with Babylon Candle and tcda on this one. Stark has a ton of Se. He's putting things together and making it work, not brainstorming and mapping out everything before proceeding. That's one of the major differences between the two. They both have analytical Ti to back up their primary function, but Se is "do it right now and see if it works" while Ne "brainstorm on paper first".

    He also seems very focused on -current- fame and fortune. Ne users are more future oriented
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.
