    Ok, so my friend could still be an ESTJ... and most probably is.


    BTW: You don't post like a typical INTP. Why is that?

    I knew an INTJ on whom I'd bet $1000 could pwn you all in any Trivia challenge, "Pursuit" or otherwise. He was very successful at scholar's bowl (quiz competitions).

    Haha! Well, if it helps, my skill comes from a love of reading rather than being someone who simply learns facts. I'm interested in a lot of things!

    I want feedback based on that one point. I thought all ESTJs would at least be good at Trivial Pursuit if not unbeatable.

    My problem is my friend is blind so I'm not sure how much of his observations are done because it is forced upon him.

    I've always thought he was ESTJ (because I "tested" he and his wife many years ago).
    Dude that's ISTJ, based on stereotypes. ESTJs would stereotypically be good at beating you with one thing.. a large stick.

    As a parting shot, you understand that feedback based upon any one event wouldn't be indicative of anything in particular... right?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I don't give up opportunities to make convuluted jokes. Capitalization be damned.

    At any rate- why would they be good (or bad) at Trivial Pursuit? Isn't it mostly a pop-culture junky thing? Which could be any type, really, but I think the absolute ideal could be ENTP.

    Is this a serious question?
    I've never heard that one of the defining characteristics of being ESTJ is being pro at that game.

    However most of their pursuits in life are trivial beyond belief.

    Perhaps it's just a different kind of trivial pursuit that he's practiced in.

    Glad you got the joke.

    Definitely.

    You... took a shot... at me?

    In answer to your , umm, perhaps I did not know that.

    I was just adding that one puzzle piece to the puzzle, actually.
    It makes a lot more sense that he is an S and not an N.

    The people who are the best at it are people who remember a lot of disconnected facts and details.

    Unfortunately, yes.
    Apparently, it was a dumb question.
    I thought an S would be pretty good at it, but he said he was really bad at it.

    What does Trivial Pursuit have to do with N/S?

    I know one xNTP (besides myself) that I'd put up against any ESTJ in Trivial Pursuit.
