    He created a bubble wrap dispenser modelled on a cat feeder where you fed bubble wrap through the top of a chimney like structure and it comes down to a hole in the bottom. But since our main tool of construction in the department is cardboard boxes it was an eyesore and was eventually thrown out.

    He also made a craft knife blade receptacle out of two Styrofoam cups taped together and stuck shoddily to the wall.

    So maybe INTP is apt.
    Hah, my ESTP Dad does stuff like that all the time. (The keyword being cardboard!) I'm going with ISTP too... he sounds hilarious.

    Any way you could have him take the test?

    I laughed out loud several times while reading your description of him. He seems like a hilarious guy, but I don't know if I would be able to work with him.

    I cannot conceive of any way to get him to take the test. This is how I imagine asking him would go:

    Me: Hey bro, do you want to take this test?
    Him: What is it?
    Me: You know it's just this... you know, like... well personality types.
    Him: Why would I?
    Me: Why do you think, to see what type you are.
    Him: Dah! (swipes hand dismissively) It's all bullshit! What, you actually believe this shit? I thought you were supposed to be smart. They make this stuff to dupe Dr Phil watching housewives into spending their husband's money.
    Me: It's free you idiot.
    Him: Yeah that's what they say. So what type are you? Fat type? The type that eats the most food?
    Me: God I can't wait for your funeral.
    Him: At least I'll be able to fit in my coffin! Aha!
    pause
    Him: Ay, that was a good one ay? What did you think of that?
    Me: Nah.
    Him: Aw, c'mon, I was only joking.
    Me: Nah.
    Him: Nah, not really, ah!
    Me: Stop talking to me.
    Him: Hmm!

    End of conversation.
    Why do we always come here?

    This guy sounds great. I'd love to observe him in his natural habitat.

    My gut feeling tells me that he might be an INTP, with a weaker N.

    Another recent story.

    Like most mind-numbing places to work ours has little raffles and things and one day after one (Fuck it I'm just going to name the bogan now) Elliott found the bin with all the names in it, hid it in his clutches and scuttled back to our department.

    With it he invented a game, you ask "Who in the company has/is the most ______" and you pull out a name and laugh at it. Usually they were incredibly childish like, "Who in the company has the most maggots up the bum?" or "Who in the company has the smallest genitalia?"

    And when the people would come in later in the week Elliott would say, "Oh if it isn't old magotty-bum!" without them understanding the reference at all.

    He sounds really extroverted to me. Doesn't sound like an introvert.

    (Love it.)

    I say deploy stealth questioning! (Yes he would have it figured out in a moment and you would have to correct for random silliness.) Could be fun coming up with subtle questions for him though.

    I realise he probably does from what I've said. But he has one good friend outside of work, he spends hours at a time making music by himself, he's not much of a party animal and he only acts like the way I've described with people he knows well. As I mentioned earlier some of the loudest, talkative and most argumentative people in the department are introverts, myself included. Like me, he doesn't venture out of the department much as we both don't like being around people we don't know very well.

    He does go into himself within the day and these outbursts usually increase throughout the day as he can very quiet in the morning. His pinnacle is usually at 5pm. There is an extravert in the department we get along with, but who we both complain about because he gets too close to us, touches us, breathes down our necks, headbutts us and doesn't respect an intorvert's personal space. The fact Elliott complains about it is another reason I think he's an introvert.
