    Yeah, he's pretty tall. Definitely over 6 feet. Don't see how that applies, but...

    Of course. That's why I asked the question in the first place. I wanted to see what everyone else thought. Right now, I'm leaning more toward him being an ENTJ or ESTJ. He seems like a very judicious person. He's incredibly opinionated and sometimes pushes his opinions on others. The thing that led me to him being a P was that he's really ADD. He's always moving from topic to topic. He's kind of scatterbrained like some INTPs, but he's definitely extroverted.

    Anyway, I think he's a J now. He's just a really scatterbrained J.

    What do you guys think of that?

    Doesn't that mean that he towers over practically everyone else?

    I'm only 5'1" and I have a cousin about my height. He got sent to Japan through the military and one of the first things he wrote back home was "I feel tall!" LOL! When you're 5'1", that doesn't happen a lot, let me tell you!

    I think the question-asker thought perhaps the pariah's height was making him feel superior and thus boosting his already overly-inflated ego... just guessing.

    scatterbrained would lead me more toward S, since an N would mostly stay on the main big-picture.

    yeah- when I was a kid I thought that a pariah was a type of fish- I was so disappointed to learn that it is a PERSON

    The person in question is something.... immature. Anything other than that is mere speculation.

    I've never met an ENTP who "likes details". Me, I barely even notice them, let alone like them. But the protective suit thing puts me in mind of when I asked someone if they knew a collective term for hands and feet that was equivalent to limbs for arms and legs. it's exactly because a word like that allows me to further generalise that I want to know it, though, and not because I like to get hung up on details!

    Apart from that, he does sound sorta like a characature ENTP gone wrong. I can see how my type if very young/immature/spoilt could end up like that, but it's a real worst case scenario... most ENTP's seem to me to be pretty benevolent and easy going, and moreover, usually well liked in whatever community they're in, if often resented by a minority - if the people who are real sticklers for tradition and details of etiquette are the minority, as they have been most places I've been.

    So, there's this guy who lives in the same town as me in Japan. Since he's one of only a few native-English speakers in the town, we sometimes hang out. There are about five other towns in my area, and I know most of the young foreigners there, too. Anyway, almost everyone in the area HATES this guy's guts. A few of us try to get along with him (since we know how lonely it can be when you're along in a foreign country), but everyone else wants to rip the guy's throat out. I know, because that was my initial reaction to him.

    Anyway, I was trying to type the guy, but I can't decide on what he is, although I think he's an NT, perhaps ENTP. Here are some of his traits:
    opinionated, uses dramatic big words, insensitive to others' feelings, extremely knowledgeable about a wide variety of subjects, likes to explore/get lost, incredibly talkative (his nick-name is Mr. Loquacious), brags a lot, esoteric, confident, snide to anyone with opposite views, and argumentative.

    He seems to have a huge thirst for knowledge, and he seems pretty comfortable being thrown into new situations. He knows more about the area than people who have lived here 4 years, but he's only been here a few months. Therefore, I think T and P. Still, he's also really opinionated and stubborn.

    Then, he loves to hear himself talk, which is one of the reasons people seems to hate him. In big groups he dominates the discussion, usually with something nitpicky and self-promoting. In small groups, it's easier to step in to the conversation and interrupt him. E or I?

    The guy really lacks tack and is always accidentally insulting people. Is this an S function more than an N one? I just can't see this guy being an SP or even an SJ.

    I had a small argument with the guy over semantics recently. We were arguing about whether there is a catch-all term for protective suits like bunny suits and hazmat suits. My argument was that I didn't care to distinguish between them in my day to day life (I'm an English teacher, for Pete's sake!) His response was that he always tries to be as specific and correct in speech as possible, no matter how offensive someone else may take it. Very NTP, I think. I said that I'd rather generalize and move on to something else. Very INTJ. I like overview, he likes details.

    Anyway, I mostly get along with the guy (because I only see him very sparingly). When lacking a conversation piece, I ask him for information about something obscure. I'm morbidly curious to hear some of his strange opinions and ideas.

    Tell me what you think. Have you ever met an ENTP gone wrong? Did I type him wrong?

    Actually, I've had discussions with ESTJs playing semantics games with me... or actually willfully refusing to accept my explanation of what I meant after they misunderstood me.
