When I go home for holidays and the summer, I have a solid group of four friends. These were virtually the only people I kept strong friendships with since high school ended. I'm sure of three of their types (INTJ, INFP, ISTJ).
We're all gaming geeks and share an interest in many intellectual matters. I consider all of us to be bright guys. We all did well in school and were seen as geeks in high school. More girls in my grade were excellent students but the five of us all had strong grades in high school or high test scores (my grades were weaker than my friends but I did the best on standardized tests). I'd argue in some ways that I'm the most different from them- in that, I have more breadth in interests and am the only one who drinks a lot of alcohol in college.
However, I'm not sure of the type of one of my friends.
Here are some of his qualities and behaviors.
-Quiet- when we hang out- he's often the one who says hardly anything.
(My other close friends are Introverts but they do say stuff- especially my INTJ friend who could probably be mistaken for an Extravert superficially..)
-Laidback and very easygoing.
-Mathematically gifted and is studying Engineering at Columbia
-Cooperative and very agreeable- I don't think I've ever seen him disagree with anyone.
-Has a witty sense of humor- he doesn't share it much but when he does- he's hilarious. He can be sarcastic, like the rest of us, but it's clear his intentions are 100% filled with good intentions- while the rest of us can have somewhat of a 'nasty' side with our sarcasm.
-My INTJ friend is easily the most dominant and assertive in our group and he will often agree with him. My INTJ friend thinks he's the most similar to him out of everyone in our group but I don't think that's necessarily the case. His interests also coincide the most with my INTJ friend. They both have similar interests in TV shows where everyone is an idiot (reality shows, Maury) and have genuine passions for science, which isn't necessarily true for the rest of us...
-Very nice. My ISTJ friend once commented that he is the nicest person he ever knew.
-Very devoted to his family. These days, he's the one I hang out with the least because he always has obligations to his family. He's Indian and comes from a very family-oriented environment. He has deep respect for his family and also has strict parents. He still has a midnight curfew and regularly commutes home from college.
What type do you think he is?
Feel free to ask me questions.
I know I left a lot out!
