    Dead Person #1 - Male

    As a child: Didn't talk until 3 when he politely asked for someone to pass the salt. Got his first job at ten delivering newspapers. Bought a bike, then bought a stand up bass. Became an Eagle Scout (Sea Scout). Was considered the genius of the family but was never formally tested.

    High School: In every club imaginable, chess, science, Hi-jinx, drama, football, wrestling, orchestra, marching band and still managed to have a ton of girlfriends. Was also something of a rebel (beatnik) played bass in a Jazz Quartet and was arrested once for siphoning gas out of a police car.

    College: Didn't get into first choice Anapolis or second choice Stanford because of his 3.0 average. NROTC, band, football, girlfriends. BS-Physics/BA-English Lit, MS Business

    Adulthood: Joined the Navy because he was afraid he would become a bum if left to his own devices. Was a navigator/radio man on the USB Theodore Roosevelt (under Alan Rickover). Rose to the postion of Commander, worked with NASA (XO of the ship that picked up the astronauts after the Apollo 12 mission). Also worked for the Pentagon and became a weapons engineer after retiring. Helped design the Polaris and Regulus missles.

    Spoke English, Russian and French fluently. Loved to discuss physics, politics, sci-fi, Monty Python (in the 70s), poetry, history, art and literature. There literally wasn't any subject this man didn't know at least one thing about. He was often the life of the party (and unfortunately for his wife very popular with the ladies--but fortunately for her also VERY loyal). He often performed guitar and sang bawdy songs or told jokes. Also loved to paint and enjoyed woodworking and mechanics. Finally he followed the philosophies of the Greek Stoics, Confucious and Bushido. Read prodigious amounts of books, magazines, political journals, etc. daily. Wrote stories (historical & Sci-fi), poetry and songs.

    Perfect pitch, photographic memory.

    As a Husband: Very passionate, wrote letters and love poems to wife daily, also sent flowers and did all those wonderful romantic things you only see in the movies.

    As a father: Usually very calm, taught by example and led his kids in discussions so they could come to their own logical conclusions. Sometimes had an explosive temper. (Only towards his kids). Was always the one who came in and discussed feelings, etc. Also taught his kids to hike, camp, shoot, fish, fix cars. Didn't believe boys and girls should be treated differently (even in the 50s). Gormand. Loved Opera & Jazz. Often made tapes of newly released punk/goth/alternative music for me in the 80s before she got wind of new bands. (I never figured out how he did this.)

    Most knowledgable and yet humble man I ever met. But could be vindictive when he was a young man. (Once got a man drunk and shipped him home for busting his base playing "base ball." He always told me, "Don't get mad, get even."

    VERY private about his personal life, but could tell a good story about his younger days. Never discussed his navy days until one episode came out in a book. Developed heart disease from the stress of carrying around the key to the "red" button on the sub, also later struggled with the role of hatchet man (he admitted it gave him a heart attack).

    His discription of himself was "John Paul Jones in love beads."

    If you made it this far, than you in advance.

    ENTP/ ENFP is my guess on the first read through.

    He sounds like a 7w8 E_TP to me. Some things seem to point to N, some to S.

    That's ironic, I'm a 7w8.

    I understand what you mean. He was very mechanical and good with his hands, but at the same time always willing to engage in theoretical discussions about time/space continuums or eastern philosophy. Things that most S types (except perhaps ISTPs) usually get bored with really easy. And he was ALWAYS reading and journalling. So I lean towards N.

    He kept a pretty tight lid on his own emotions, but was the life of the party so the T/F thing has been pretty difficult for me to figure out.

    Thanks for responding.

    Also I knew him later in life when he was pretty J, but that could be from a life in the military . . . he was an odd mix of conservative/liberal values.

    Yeah, the military thing could have made a big difference. He could very well be an ENTP, but after having been in the military he saw the value of some SJ aspects of life. So that may have made him realize the usefulness of practical interests (and teaching his kids these things).

    He definitely sounds like an E_TP to me though. If he's ENTP, the NeFe combo definitely makes them huge people pleasers. So it would make sense for him being the life of the party.

    Thanks . . . I think agree that NeFe could be right on the money.

    Dead Person #2 - Female

    As a kid: VERY independent. Decided to go to a different church than her parents at age 5 and got a odd jobs to pay the bus fare. Worked from the age of 8. Very social in high school. Lots of boy friends and crazy adventures. Stayed out late and didn't care what people thought of her. Started a club in HS called the Pink Kittens. Paid her way through college without help from her parents. Worked to support herself in college.

    Started as a Psych major and then decided after interning for the summer that she would go crazy listening to everyone's problems. Couldn't stand whining. Switched to business. Poor grades. Got married and dropped out.

    Didn't like to stand out in a crowd, very concerned about appearances, but was the life of the party when drunk. Irreverent and blunt sense of humor either made friends or enemies. No middle of the road with her.

    Very intelligent in a non nonsense sort of way. Despised theory, but enjoyed history and literature. Especially liked making money. Prone to "get rich quick schemes." Liked getting "a good deal." Still very practical with money.

    Could pry secret information out of anyone including officers in the military. Gave gifts with strings attached. Very passionate and sensual. Mama bear for her family. Fight first, think second. Someone you wanted on your side. Not afraid of anyone. Never caught unprepared. Always able to go with the flow and change information.

    Happiest traveling and meeting new people, kept in contact with old friends. Liked writing letters, bad at keeping house, cooking, etc.

    Didn't really get her children. Was simultaneously proud and disappointed in them. Didn't like to discuss science unless it had a practical application. Didn't respect people who didn't fight her. Also easily offended. Had an almost "psychic" ability to know things about people. Very persuasive and manipulative.

    Young spirit even in her 70s, didn't want to hang around old people, "For crying out loud those people are just sitting around waiting to die!" Liked driving her Oldsmobile fast over speed bumps. Very brave. Never complained about physical pain or hardship.

    This may be weird, but I think either ESFP or ENFJ. I'm thinking more ESFP... but meh.

    Dead Person #3 - Male

    Sensitive Child, always thinking of others. Struggled in school. Dropped out as a freshman in HS and began partying and abusing drugs and alcohol.

    Played drums in a band, hardly ever slept. Amazing poet and artist. Would spend hours each night writing music, poetry or painting. Loved animals, loved people, life of the party. Wacky sense of humor. Could make anyone his friend in 15 minutes. Very accepting of people's differences.

    Passionate about life but very hard on himself. Sometimes suicidal. Often blew problems up out of proportion and was very paranoid, skeptical and easily offended. Extreme emotions.

    Conservative politically. Put Family first, God & Country second, friends third. Had a ton of friends. Willing to go days without eating to give a homeless man his last $50. Always available for friends, even at 3AM. People would tell him their troubles because he would genuinely listen, but then their troubles would eat at him for days afterwards.

    Wanted to start a camp for disabled children. Couldn't wait to have a family of his own. Loved kids, animals and being out of doors.

    Very smart, could talk about any subject with interest, but couldn't sit still in school. Very good with his hands, very meticulous work. Mechanics and woodworking.
