    Holden Caulfield is an Idealist. He constantly has high expectations and events or people fail to live up to them, causing him frustration. See also, the grafitti on his sister's school wall. He attempts to preserve the minds of the young children. He is NF.

    Unless you are trying to tell me that at 16, he's not responsible for one shred of maturity, in which case I'd guess he'd have developmental issues, in which case we shouldn't even be trying to type him in the first place.

    I never said he was Fi dominant. My claim is that he's an ENFP, which would make him Ne dominant. And the Fi types tend to look very immature in their dealings with values at a young age. Very prone to go the Emo/goth route. Angst and more angst. Fi lends itself to a very simplistic view of the world at a young age. All idealism does, I guess.

    And other types cannot do this?

I really can't see him being a T at all.
    Cha-ching!!!

    Spot on!!!
