    You're dead right he is no ISTP - it's probably a misconception from people thinking athletic = SP.

    I think he is INFJ (he's pushing his Ni insights with the social dynamics of Fe through his accentuation in facial expressions, smile, eyes, voice intonations etc.).

    Martial Arts attracts quite a few Ni's as it has a more deeper and spiritual context than most athletic endeavours.

    Umm, I don't think that he was an NF, he used quite a bit of logic and was quite unfeeling. Check this out....

    INFJ do have Ti as a tertiary function and they are more than capable of using it (some are extremely capable) - Keirsey's temperaments is fine for someone who hasn't got a good hold of their tertiary and inferior functions, but once you've got someone who is proficient all the way down their functional hierarcy it's useless (i.e. there are plenty of NF types that can appear NT or SP like if they have interests and are very skilled in academia or physical activity - but they are still INFJ/ENFP/INFP/ENFJ because of their lead way of functioning).

    I don't get how he was 'unfeeling'? He is accentuating and conveying what he's reading about his student with his Fe.

    Well, he was a teacher as well as a philosopher. Plus, he was obviously very planned and organized. Hmm....I could see him as INFJ who used a lot of Ti, definitely.

    I don't know enough about Bruce Lee to comment, but I do question some of these MBTI "identifications" of famous people, especially of those who are long dead. I doubt very much the MBTI "experts" have in every case done enough research.

    For example, Thomas Jefferson is often identified as an INTP. He was indeed a famous introvert. In the Virginia House of Burgesses he was known for his writing talents but also his silence...obviously, he was asked to write the Declaration of Independence because of his excellent writing. (He also delivered his first inaugural address in tones so quiet that few could actually hear him speaking). Yes, his wide ranging interests in science, architecture, politics and languages possibly mark him as a T. But we was widowed as a young man, and was a lonely heart who fell in love with an English painter living in Italy, Maria Cosway. And those are some steamy, romantic love letters...the most famous one nowadays is called the "Heart and Head" letter and is actually longer than the Declaration of Independence! T or F? I could see an argument for INFP...

    He was also a ruthless business man. He completely ripped off and stole the idea of AC electricity from the guy who invented it. He did all kinds of other unscrupulous acts as well. Am I saying that all Ti users are crooked and unscrupulous; no of course not. However, I would find it hard for a dominant Fi user to pull this off.

    Hmm...I'm not aware of Jefferson's pilfering of any concept concerning electricity. Of course Franklin was known for his experimentation and public demonstrations of electricity, especially in the French court.

    What were the other unscrupulous acts? Please leave slavery out of it. I have those arguments on the political blogs. I will grant in advance that he was being untrue to republican principles and the Constitution when he engineered the Louisiana Purchase.

    Read this and you will see that Thomas Edison was far from an Fi user.
