    Wher do you see the J with Tyler? Se seems to be one of the favourite function of him, not simply a tertiary function wich he would have well mastered.

    His plans for Project Mayhem and stuff. He seems like a Te dominant. Rules of Fight Club, rules of Project Mayhem, delegating, etc.

    Tyler is an ESTP

    Norton is an ESTP trying (and failing) to live like an IS_J

    Finally someone gets it.

    There's more though -- He appears to be more Ni than Se. He loves kicking ass, yes, but the whole enterprise of Project Mayhem, and by extension the Fight Club, was designed to fulfill an idealized vision of destroying civilization and restoring humanity to an anarcho-primitivist state. The only way Durden could possibly be considered an SP is if he were an ESFP and Project Mayhem was an Fi product -- but that's a stretch to say the very least.

    In short, Speed Gavroche fails at typology, as usual.

    You did'nt understand the movie.

    There's nothing idealistic in Tyler's Project Mayhem. He essentially did that for lulz.
    The rest is just due to Norton's need to feel power toward his alter ego. Tyler is not strict, academic and obssesed with competence like NTJ are. He's going with the flow, always more or less homeless, act and learn in a step-by-step appraoch by getting his hands dirty. Rules of the Fight Club are not stictly controlled and actually just guidelines for behavior rather than mandates: ESTP. Also, I know tons of ESTPs who are like Tyler Durden, but you will not meet an ENTJ who is like that. Just show me one ENTJ who left college befor the PHD to make soap with his hands and live in a ramshackle house and we'll talk again.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. What makes you think that's the case, other than the fact you want Durden in your own quadrant?

    The rest is just due to Norton's need to feel power toward his alter ego. Tyler is not strict, academic and obssesed with competence like NTJ are. He's going with the flow, always more or less homeless, act and learn in a step-by-step appraoch by getting his hands dirty.
    He is an ENTJ 7. An ethically chaotic character who desires to live in an animalistic fashion and wants all of humanity to do as much, due to an insane Ni vision that it would be a better state than civilization.

    Rules of the Fight Club are not stictly controlled and actually just guidelines for behavior rather than mandates: ESTP.
    They are strictly controlled. Tyler gets pissed about people breaking rules 1 and 2.

    Also, I know tons of ESTPs who are like Tyler Durden, but you will not meet an ENTJ who is like that. Just show me one ENTJ who left college befor the PHD to make soap with his hands and live in a ramshackle house and we'll talk again.
    And we go back to the point about Tyler being an Ni-driven agent of chaos -- an ENTJ with Enneagram-Seven core motivations. He didn't leave college due to burnout or laziness. He left college because he felt disdainful of civilization in general -- not unlike the sentiments expressed by the ENTJ George Carlin in the second-to-last chapter of his autobiography.

    When you are done reading that post, look to the left at the type in his profile.
    So much for his thoughts about Ne . . .

    His typing seems correct here for the most part. Unlike most of the other members in this thread, he didn't simply just list an arbitrary type with no reasoning behin it. And unlike a few others, his reasons for typing Tyler Durden ENTJ are completely legit. In fact, this could be said for most of his typings of fictional characters.

    Your reasoning here is fallacious. Yes, Aleksei had some trouble concerning his own type, but that doesn't mean that he is incapable of typing others; remember what he said in that thread about 1. Knowing the system, and 2, Knowing oneself? Perhaps he may have trouble with self typing, but every typing that he has made of someone else (whether fictional, historical, or some forum member) has always been backed up with clear reasoning, something of which I have yet to see anyone else accomplish (safe myself sometimes and a few possible others).

    Or it could just be that JCF doesn't exist, so it's entirely possible to relate to multiple functions, and no I don't buy into the bullshit false dichotomy reasoning of 'omgz the functions are defined different so it's impossible to be Te+Ti, etc. 11111'.
