    Default What's My Brother's Type?

    He goes to a national military academy
    He likes to know what's going to happen, order, very grounded and practical
    He likes physical affection a lot
    He's reserved but at times can be very extraverted
    He likes to have fun, party
    He makes sure he looks good when he goes out
    He likes to help other but can be somewhat bossy about it
    He into following rules
    ISFJ/ESFJ, possibly? But...
    He likes Muse, Coldplay, Radiohead, Elbow (mostly indie music)
    His favorite books are Slaughterhouse Five, Fight Club, any Kurt Vonnegut books
    He likes to write poetry
    Many of his thoughts are fairly abstract
    Open to new people and ideas
    He doesn't really believe in religion (kind of skeptical of it)
    INFJ/ENFJ?

    I'm not sure about INFJ because it seems we are too different to be the same type.

    I am overly concerned about how I come off to others while he doesn't seem to care as much and is much more firm and assertive than I am (not necessarily mean but just stands his ground, esp. in arguments).


    Any new suggestions?

    It's difficult to offer anything more because what a person likes or doesn't like might have nothing to do with type, so I don't want to steer you in the wrong direction.

    I suggest you observe his behavior and words in the context of the dimensions of MBTI theory.
    You might want to go to this website and take this test as if you were your brother.
    See what happens.
    At least you will learn what kind of behavior to observe.

    From what you wrote he sounds exactly ISTJ. Depending on what you didn't write, he could be anything.

    I never thought of him as a T but that is a big possibility.
    What are some other things that could maybe help dicipher it better?

    Is he more concerned with details and facts than he is skilled at discerning connections and noticing patterns?

    Is he more energized or drained by group social activity which continues for about four hours?

    If he disagrees with something, is it because he notices poor morals, or faulty logic? (tough; use best judgment)

    Does he tend not only to make schedules, but follow them well?

    Based on this list, and I can't be sure, but I'd say his type is brunette, kinda artsy, talkative, and insightful.

    He's definitely I and J but I don't know about S/N and T/F.

    Also, He and I get along but end up clashing if we're in a room too long like him correcting and/or questioning what I just said... somewhat condescendingly. This does not jive well with me sometimes being a little too sensitive.

    My mom kept saying he was a F but he really doesn't open up to the family much so its not a definite answer.

    I'm fairly sure that I'm INFJ (researched for over a month)

    haha, I must have done a really bad job. But to your assumption: yes, yes, not really, yes.

    You can't answer those questions? Do not want to? Unless you video him or he registers and starts postin' up a storm, that's all I got--All I possibly could have.
