    Oh, such trivial talk. Then just send him an e-mail.

    He doesn't have a computer. But we live together for God's sake.

    Everyone can communicate; if he doesn't, then he probably doesn't want to. However, people tend to open up when you respect their boundaries and respect their ability to communicate.

    I try my damndest to respect his boundaries. It doesn't look like I can get him to communicate no matter what I do. It almost seems hopeless.

    He focuses solely on the external, and I prefer an internal approach.

    I'm fine with exploring connections between the internal and external, but to focus solely on the latter is stupid.
    Solely on external? What distinguishes his work the most is his focus on multiple intelligences. Intelligence is internal. As in, inside. Within. Interior.

    Not within the framework I'm discussing.

    Keirsey is a behaviorist, and focused on that which is external.

    Jung, by contrast, focused on the internal (i.e., consciousness, psychoanalysis, etc.).

    So what type was Carl Jung? CelebrityTypes.com says INFJ, but it also said Jung identified as ISTP and INTP!

    Ugh. This problem sounds like it just can't be solved.

    There isn't clear agreement. I believe he said he was an INTP in a famous interview but others don't interpret his words as such.
