    From the first one (haven't seen the second) he is inventive but seems to be inventive to serve a purpose, usually fun, like creating a cool flying suit, rather than because he loves inventing. It seems he is just blessed with a supergenius IQ but rarely feels any desire to use it when he is not working. Most of the time, he just likes to have fun and look impressive. He seems a definite S.

    And this is proof of Sensing, how?

    What I mean is that inventing is not his passion. It's just something he's really really good at. His passion is just going around having a good time and having a thrill-ride. Inventing is just an end to his present, sensing related end.

    I think it kind of makes sense.
    That's an interesting question...

    I honestly have no idea. I suspect that at the very least it would occasionally happen that an author/"authors" would "naturally" provide a character with correlative dominate and inferior functions. I would also suspect that an author/"authors" might create an entirely fictional type with all of the ideal components of the varying personality types and possibly even increase the maximum number of correlations but I haven't really spent any time researching evidence to back any of that up.

    To me if he were a Sensor, he'd be much more hands-on. As in, he'd assemble the robot himself, or something. I don't think the fact the man likes having a good time is proof of Sensing; God knows I myself love a good party.

    But msot people are snsors, and most people don't spendtheir lvies making things with their hands.

    it is in large part to do the fact of whether one likes concrete facts or theories, for example. a flying suit is a very concrete concept.

    Most real world inventors like Edison or Steve Jobs are considered N. (In fact they are usually considered ENTP.) How is a lightbulb or a home computer less concrete than a flying suit?

    Clealry in the parallel universe of Iron Man, it is a concrete idea.

    I didn't watch the 2nd one as I disliked the first one so much, but in the first one, the guy is like "it was ok when I was selling arms to Amerkins to smoke out A-rabs, but now I'm pissed off at these A-rabs using my guns to kill white innocent people, so Ima make me a suit and go massacre some myself".

    Then he goes and makes the suit in order to fulfill that immediate purpose, whcih he then proceeds to fulfill.

    At no point is he an abstract personality speculating with ideas as his main form of operating.

    You still haven't told me how a flying suit is more concrete than a lightbulb or home computer. Every human artifact in the world today started out as simply an idea. The first person who has an idea significantly different from what exists needs a significant imagination to go with it. That is why inventors tend to be N's.
