The shrooms he was talking about in the video are also mail-order, although he will go magic mushroom hunting in his "backyard."

    His videos are always about himself (thus the selfishness mentioned in the ISFP personal growth page), never about him and someone else. I can only find one video where he says something to his wife.

    The music in the video is his own composition. The conversation occurs toward the end.

    His voice is reminiscent of Art Bell's.

    He and his wife don't seem to be lower class people. I'm shocked that he is able to be married, for one thing. They seem socially middle class, and in that social strata it is a big accomplishment for a man who isn't the top breadwinner to be able to stay married. Generally women will insist on that. Or men will insist on it. Or both . . .

    But the exchange didn't give me enough to say his type. But ISFP remains plausible, and the way he spoke to his wife and the way he acts does seem SPish. Since I reject ESTP, and ISTP doesn't make sense at all, he should be ISFP or ESFP. You select ISFP; have you considered ESFP? I admit that it doesn't seem as likely as ISFP; I think you've got him right. I'd put 75% odds that he's ISFP at this point.

    They live in a dumpy cabin in the mountains. They go to town on some midnights to go "shopping." I asked him why they go shopping at midnight, and he said shopping was the same as dumpster-diving.

    But I thought I read in an earlier post that his wife had a job before the baby. And they have internet.

    They have her minimum wage job plus his disability income. They have internet but no cable or satellite tv. He's proud of himself for defeating the evil cable companies by watching tv shows on the net.

    Why does she work a minimum wage job? She seems like she could get something a lot better than that. Is she college educated? Graduated highschool?

    BTW, your last sentence is very INTP. I have an INTP friend in the Ukraine right now who wrote me something with that exact feel to it.

    I am very INTP.

    Sorry, but I don't have a lot of detail on their biographies, just whatever I happen to pick up through FB. I'm guessing she's a high school drop out but he has an anthropology degree of some kind from a community college.

    From "this guy": "if a man [referring to himself] can live easier in a cabin in the woods than in a city with a job, then you know something's wrong [with society]."

    I added in the bracketed parts in order to add some context to his assertion. It is a self-referential statement that intends to reflect his own needs back on society, particularly, the idea that a life of leisure is superior to working a day job for a boss in some corporate environment.

    This is him living in a bubble. His philosophy of life is like a womb that he can hide in, and he refuses to give birth to himself. If his philosophy is true for him, the assertion is that it must be true for everybody else too. Living in a bubble helps him to maintain this projection of himself onto society as a defense against the necessity of earning a living.

    From https://www.personalitypage.com/html/ISFP_per.html -

    "If an ISFP's personal value system is threatened by external influences, the ISFP shuts out the threatening data in order to preserve and honor their value system. This is totally natural, and works well to protect the individual psyche from getting hurt. However, the ISFP who exercises this type of self-protection regularly will become more and more unaware of other people's perspectives."

    So I replied back to him, stating that other people don't mind working for a living. This is what they WANT to do. And it's not right of him to try forcing his leisure-loving value-system upon them. It's not that "this guy" doesn't work hard, he works for himself doing his own thing rather than obeying the wills of others. What he wishes for is a society where everybody is free to work hard at 'doing their own thing,' a society where everybody is his or her own master.

    This is an artist's idealistic and individualistic rendering of what society should look like.

    Here's another ISFP I had typed a couple years ago. Compare this guy to the "this guy" in the videos I posted above.

    Frankly, I find unveiled Fi like in that video to be incredibly scary and threatening, and I've thought this when I've seen it displayed since childhood. I like Fe exactly because it's 'not personal', you know? Like with the ESFJ, or with myself, you know that's it's a tool for getting along with other people. You know that there isn't that heat inside. Whereas this guy could do absolutely anything if he got worked up enough. And it would be personal, which to me is the scary thing.

    To me, that's why dictators like Stalin who killed millions have never seemed so very evil, at a visceral level. You know it wasn't personal; he did it because of practical interest, however twisted, not because he hated the people. Murderers who do much less damage for personal reasons are always a lot more scary.

    I have to say that this display, which I couldn't bear to hear after 2:49, does fit with ISFP very much. People stay the same from childhood on, at the core; it's the kind of passion displayed by an ISFP relative of mine as a child. But they conceal it as they grow older, particularly the male ones.

    How do you, as the dispassionate INTP, react to this kind of Fi?
