    Thumbs up Ted Mosby is an INFP?

    Apparently Ted Mosby, from How I met your mother, is an INfP - weak f, but I actually see a resemblance between him & myself(from the facts below).

    It says on his wiki that he's a perfectionist, chases his ideals/"dreams", is fluent in sign language, is a "poetry buff", hates when his friends don't appreciate his interests, etc etc..

    I think I'm either a 4w5, 4w3, 6w5 or 9w1. Most possibly 4w5.

    My original thought is ISFJ. He strikes me as traditional in his ideals and conservative in manners. What kind of a Perceiver, Ne-aux sticks with one vision of the future. Also, what kind of an INFP would remember everything in excrucating detail? I don't even remember what I had for lunch yesterday. My Si is god-awful. It could be just the show idea and has nothing to do with this character but ... it's something to take into consideration. He's hard to type.

    He could be INFP, but to me, he's more likely ISFJ. ISFJs can be very dreamy, very perfectionist, enjoys poetry and fancy-classy hobbies/interests. They want stability, someone to love, and take their commitments very seriously.

    I see INFPs as more flimsy, more dreamy, more out-there, more uncertain about the future and what they want. Our Fi-Ne constantly takes in information and is thrilled by possibilities.

    Ted is rigid in planning out what he wants. My close friend is ISFJ and we are similar in some ways. It's hard to say who Ted is fundamentally.

    sorry for the late reply...

    but I guess 'one vision of the future' in his case is 'the ideal future', - an INFP sticks with that I think.

    I actually can remember things that I want to remember, my memory isn't really that bad, my imagination sometimes even empowers the detail in my memory. I don't think Ted is very 'rigid in planning' what he wants, he's more of a person that can't decide what he wants, - because he's always changing topics/opinions throughout the storyline, it could be that he has more Te, as male INFPs are usually like that for some reason.

    But I can agree on that ISFJ thing, he does act like and ISFJ, but maybe it's just his pursuits that are alike to an INFP.

    So Ted = ISFJ?

    Default Ted- NF

    I think ted is definitely an NF-idealist. he's a true-love and fate obsessed, a passionate and intelligent architect. Unlike SP-artisan barney, he takes meaning in relationships. He often gets frustrated with his friends intolerance of his pretentiously large words and reciting poetry- how many sensing types appreciate poetry or use abstract words, it's very out of their concrete nature. His desire of security and those specific details in his dreams and visions (having which in the first place is very N-like) would be out of a preference for judging (being thorough) and not sensing, making ted an INFJ? This type is not flimsy or uncertain
    Sorry i found this like a year after the conversations climax but i just rewatched them all on netflix and it got me thinking

    I'd agree with INFJ, - but wouldn't hurt to say he's ISFJ either. They both sound plausible... I'd say ISFJ myself since he seems a bit more concrete than INFJ characters I've seen on TV like Book from Firefly for example.

    Ted Mosby is so clearly intuitive I'm surprised the idea of him being a sensor is still being discussed. I can remember several moments that made me smile because of how intuitive he was acting. Think of when he bought that dilapidated old house because he saw what the house could be instead of what it was. He isn't really detail oriented at all, he seems to prefer letting someone else handle the little things and so he can dream on the big scale. I think he's really attracted to sensors because there's that big difference in their personalities. My guess is INFP as well, he's just got very strong Si.

    I say infj did he report himself as an infp?
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
