As in ESFJ or ISFJ - those are the only two likely candidates for his MBTI type.

Frat Boy and Civil Rights Activist? Yeah, definitely one in the same.

Martin Luther King was a extrovert and Fe dom ENFJ. At one point she seemed like a introvert or INFJ like Gandhi or Nelson Mandela. But no he's a classic Fe dom and ENFJ for sure. So yeah that's my vote.

Not even close, MLK was a future oriented, perceptive Ni user. Martin was a ENFJ and Fe dom and Ni aux.

I don't see Ni at all. He seems more Ne actually. Fe-Ne like most enneagram 2's who partition their attention more outward because they're a compliant type and a rejection type--very strongly outwardly focused...I agree with ESFJ. I doubt ISFJ though because of what I just mentioned. His vision seems more reliant on gathering patterns broadly, that's why it was kind of a more unorthodox way to protest (also way too image clean for an 8). It wasn't as involved in building up the pattern, boring a hole, as Ni.

Are the only types that are outright options on the poll both of the NFJ's just because he was a civil rights leader? Probably.

I remember reading that in he compared himself to the prophets and told his wife she should let him cheat on her because he helped so many people, it was the least she could do. The least he was owed. Which makes me think he's a 2. An 8 wouldn't justify and a 1 wouldn't frame it as being owed something, instead they would try to make it seem like they were doing the right thing in anger. But mostly to themselves, unlike an image type. He doesn't seem as concerned with matters of assertiveness as much as he does with his image too.
