    Default Elyse Sewell, NT... but which NT?

    Elyse Sewell is a model and blogger who is probably still best-known for her delightfully contrarian stint as a contestant on season 1 of America's Next Top Model. She got eliminated (despite being the obviously most model-y of the bunch) when she told Tyra Banks and the rest of the judges the shocking truth :rolleyes2: that being a model is basically about having had genetic good fortune. Her (very entertaining) blog is here.

    She's blatantly NT, but which NT?

    I asked her and after some bickering she posted a test result of INTJ - but with no percentages and no confirmation of whether she thinks INTJ is her best fit.

    Personally, I think she's an ENTP. She seems comfortable (thriving) constantly meeting new people and entering new environments and, though very T, she also seems open-minded, adaptable and spontaneous - more reactive than active - and more of a truth seeker than an application seeker.

    I originally posted this over at INTPc where I further argued for ENTP:

    Do any of you know any ENTPs for comparison? The male ENTPs I know would not exactly be loudmouths while trapped with inane S model wannabes; I actually think an INTJ would have dominated the atmosphere [on the show] more than Elyse did.

    Also, have you read her LiveJournal? Her lifestyle seems very E (and P) to me. Of course, models travel, but she seems to really thrive on constant change.
    Stubborn - how so?

    After being eliminated, she said something to the effect of "Tyra said I was coming off as arrogant and condescending... And I think she was right." (And she wasn't boasting.) I recall being surprised at that. Not very INTJ - or at least, not very me. But I find that ENTPs (XNTPs?) can digest criticism with impressive ease and objectivity.
    Edit months later: I now believe it is possible that she is INTJ as she tested instead of ENTP as I claimed.

    No replies?

    Maybe the eulogy from this INTP can convince you to check out her blog and then take a stab at her type:

    I did check out her blog and found her interesting, but it would take a lot of time to determine her type and I never watched that TV show.

    Of course, one does have to read a lot of her entries (the older ones are more informative than the recent ones, btw), but I'm hoping someone will care to do so and comment.

    I'm bored too, so I researched this person and am giving her a tentative INFP (not F because she's female), and type 4, probably 4w3.

    Yeah, and she seems a bit too troll-ish to be INFP.

    She seemed really INTJ like to me.

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
