    That sounds right. The backup personality is stereotypical ESFJ.

    Maybe INTJ, he seems too sure of himself.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    I'm not sure Arthur is ISTJ. There are elements of this.. but he has this playfulness about him, at times, and this obsession with the big picture. Like he might just be a very unhealthy different type. Not sure which one though.

    Are thinking more Ti Ne Si, than Si Te Fi?

    I think sometimes Tertiary Si stands out in some INTP characters and gives the impression of ISTJ. I've seen the same typing duality with George Costanza.

    But saying that, Arthur is possibly INTJ, especially as portrayed in the TV Show.

    True, though Deep Thought did double-check the Answer. Of course, the movie's cartoon-watching throws a giant monkey wrench into all this.

    Obsession? My memory is of an oft-muted intuition, complete with the superstitions (Thursdays) that some SJs establish in the place of worldviews. Interesting, though. I'll review.

    In the later books.. when he wants to know "what's really going on" very often, and keeps trying to solve "everything". So long and thanks for all the fish...

    Oh, okay. I bowed out right after Arthur was called a kneebiter unduly twice. I read what I believe was Neil Gaiman's critique of Adams' latter books (unless I've confused it with Amazon reviews) and get the sense that Arthur's character changed significantly beyond the trilogy.

    Giving an ESTP genius level IQ is akin to arming a nuclear warhead and playing hot potato with it, in that both are a lot of fun.

    Oh yes, and I am fairly certain Marvin is an INTP, if I was chronically clinically depressed and a genius I would be him.
