    This sounds like a TiNi loop rather than a real intuitive.

    Nah I'm just playing but seriously who knows!?

    His detached, "dreamy" demeanor contributed to my thinking he was probably INTP. The use of analogies/physicist thing is unreliable (and, IMO, stupid), so I dismiss those as typologically relevant factors. I do think he's intuitive, but only because I think he's closest to the overall INTP personality, which is an intuitive type. Not because I thought, "oh, he must be N, so let me see which N type he's most like."

    That's why, if I were to guess at a second closest type, I go by interaction style and overall personality. He's clearly BtS, so that means he's either INTP, ISFJ, INFP, or ISFP. Since he's not demonstrably attached enough to be one of the IxFPs, his second closest type is ISFJ. I don't think it's accurate to just pick out N and then guess around at all of the N types willy nilly.

    No he wasn't in a loop. He was Ni<Fe<Ti

    That's ridiculous, what Si dom uses analogies and "kryptic language" in the way that Dr. Manhattan did?

    Yes.

    My ISFJ/ISFP friend for one. iNtuitives aren't the only ones interested in things like analogies and the 'big picture' - that just shows someone with an imagination and a decent level of intelligence. There are a lot of stereotypes about that state iNtuitives must be all mysterious and thoughtful all the time, but if you look at lots of them, they aren't. People are a big mix of the cognitive functions - we use all of them, but at different levels.

    To be honest, Manhatten came across as someone suffering from schizoid personality disorder, rather than a particular type.

    The heck are you on about.

    I don't recall him using 'cryptic language'. He's basically a frickin demigod with a higher state of being and awareness. What did you expect??

    Also you think that because he decided to go along and help prevent a nuclear disaster that he was 'emotionally manipulated'? That's absurd. Again, demigod.

    You may as well say he's not an INTP because he didn't use his powers to destroy earth himself. It's absurd.

    I could imagine an ISFP with strong Ni using kryptic language, because of tertiary Ni, but not an ISFJ.

    Did you even watch the movie? The guy used kryptic language throughout the whole movie! Were we even watching the same movie?

    Maybe it's YOU not understanding him. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Did you see the scene where he did the TV interview? He was Ni as hell.
