    Do the 4th Doctor and Murdock from the A-team count?

    Seriously, I didn't have anybody I really considered a role model growing up. Now, in my late 20's, I've found a couple. They're usually very close friends I've come to admire.

    One being something of a mentor to me in my field, an intelligent business man, and a great friend to all. Always willing to help somebody out and sharp enough to help me figure out the smart way to make some important decisions in my life. We don't always see eye-to-eye, but always get where the other is coming from. My brother in all but blood.

    The other is an ENFJ friend who became a role model to me (whether they know it or not) in dealing with people and bringing my hermiting self out of the shell a bit. I've taken a lot of what I've seen from her and tried to adapt it into something that works for me. She seems to have gone AWOL from my life at the moment. An amazing friend who left one helluva a permanent impression on me before she dropped off the map.

    There are others who've helped me grow as a person, but these two are (and probably always will be) the most stand-out.

    Nope, no role models. My ideals/values are my role models. The image of the person I aspire to be.

    No, I've never had any role models. I've certainly admired some aspects in people but I can't say that I've tried to emulate anybody on purpose. I guess some things have rubbed off, subconsciously.

    Couple of my role models include:

    My grandfather (INTJ)
    He was a quiet leader, determined, and bright.

    My mother (ISTJ)
    Takes after my grandfather with determination and intelligence. Great organization skills, excellent cook, and doesn't take any bull from anyone.

    My father (INTP)
    Keeps his cool when things go wrong, gives great advice, an intellectual.

    Musicians/Artists/Scientists/ Etc.:

    Kate Bush (INFP)
    I admire her for her musical talent, and the fact that she took adventurous steps in her craft. She's unusual, and that's why I find her fascinating.

    Tony Banks (INTJ)- Keyboardist, Genesis.
    Musical genius, an introvert, with both a science and music background. Something I identify with.

    Charles Darwin (INTP)
    Despite the fact that his theory of natural selection wasn't popular with the Church, I admire the fact that he stood by his theories.

    Marie Curie (INTJ)
    She came up with the theory of radioactivity and was the first person to direct research of using radiation to treat cancer. Very important to the medical world. An intelligent woman who made a difference to the scientific world, as well as people's lives.

    Stephen Hawking (INTJ)
    Despite being disabled from Lou Gherig's disease, he is resilient and is still teaching and theorizing about the cosmos. The things he comes up with is brilliant.

    Fictional Characters:
    Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (ENTJ)- The Closer
    She's tough and doesn't take b.s. from anyone. I admire strong women.

    Special Agent Jethro Gibbs (INTJ)- NCIS
    Admire his cool approach to managing people, going with gut instincts, and the confidence.

    Miss Alice Kinnian (INFJ)- Flowers for Algernon
    My role model as a teacher. A combination of intellectual and emotional intelligence, plus a keen ability to understand people.

    Apart from myself - Amanda Palmer.
    I've posted this elsewhere:

    She's completely unafraid to be who she is and who she wants to be. Her music sounds imperfect, yet it is perfect for its cause. She is imperfect, yet perfect for her cause. Her heart is open to many people and thing, but she'll keep her strong opinions and words.

    I honestly hadn't had a "hero" for a long time. I didn't think i respected anyone i didn't have direct contact with enough for such a thing, but i do. This woman is grounded and doing what she loves, while remaining true to herself. She doesn't feign happiness or hide hurt.

    Stephen is probably ENTJ. He was quite sociable before turning into a Dalek, and still seems to enjoy joking around and the like.

    It could be possible he is ENTJ. But he's got one hell of use of Ni!

    I have a few:

    My father (xSTJ): overcame a LOT of adversity to help himself and our family; he was addicted to meth until i was 7, and at one point decided enough was enough and got clean. he's been sober for over 14 years and now runs a successful business that supports us in every way imaginable.

    My mom (INFJ): against all logical thought, stayed with my father. she told me that she always believed in him because she knew the real him and she simply knew that one day it would force its way out of this shell. she taught me to believe in the best in people, even if it looks like there is none.

    It's amazing how badass a bunch of garbage cans with toilet plungers for arms can be.
