    a) 'great' people aren't almost always typed as nfj's, they're typed as all kinds of things
    b) that list is crazy, I don't know what source you're using but at least half the people on that list are usually typed as something else. Nor are they all 'great', haha, great is subjective and the only thing those people have in common is being famous music or rock stars.

    Nobody on that list is an INFJ. And definitely not Snoop lol.

    But I know what you mean. People easily forget how much of a burden it is to be an infj. Like it's fashionable to type people as one. INFJs are the exact opposite of the superficiality that mainstream media is.

    I think these would be correct examples : Bin laden, Leonard Cohen, Al Pacino and carey mulligan.

    2pac was a convicted rapist. Something else people overlook.

    Then again infjs have been known to do terrible things without the balancing influence of entps

    Well basically because we ARE great people
    And most of those you mentioned are SPs not NFJs
