Since I have only seen this person once, and also because it's impossible to type other persons correctly, I know this is impossible......but.....nevertheless, I'd really appreciate any impressions or guesses on this guy's type or functions....

- has studied process engineering (?) with an excellent degree
- is really perfectionist about playing guitar
- he is not over his two ex-girlfriends, and somehow openly talks about it (even with "strangers" as me)
- without knowing me, only by asking a few questions he somehow really quickly discovered quite personal things about me, meaning that I am recovering from my first relationship.... and then gave tips and told about his experience. e.g., that you have to make the experience that there will be other persons you love in order to believe that. and that it took him 1 1/2 years after his first relationship to even look at other women.
- hard to describe, but seemed to have a somewhat idealistic stance on love...... that when he and his ex-girlfriend talked about marriage, they agreed that they would marry somewhere far from home without celebrating it so that it could really be a thing between the two people involved.
- he tried to provoke me about my ex-boyfriend in order to get me talking, and he openly admitted that he was being provocative.
- i was told he is really forgetful and, e.g. at university often just leaves his purse on a table and walks out of the room.....
- seems to be very good in initiating conversations, asking questions, and can be very direct at times....
I have rarely met people who talk about concepts as "love" at a party.... and openly asking other people about it...
- really nice and open to people he does not know.
- he somehow started a conversation about sox (asking if I was a communist because of my red sox), and then showed us a box with 36 pairs of sox which his mother gave his exams. he all gave us a pair of sox and really insisted that I take this present with me....really stange.....

so I know this far too little to type someone..... nevertheless, I'd really like any guess or impression of yours.
the friend of mine that took me to the party is an NT for sure, and I am quite sure that most of her friends are NTs..... I am also somewhat positive that this guy is an NT, but....his way of talking about love made me doubt that. however, it is easy to see that he is somewhat traumatized and hurt, which can be an explanation for his way of talking about such topics....

thanks for any kind of help.

haha. you aren't alone, i know a couple people like that - who have activities that span the types, and are generally confusing.

enfp?

maybe a close t-f split? plus i think that anytime you are in love the t-f divide doesnt mean a whole lot. ie, everyone feels.

Hey, thanks for your reply :)....and good to know that you know similar people :D.... I guess it's just that people are "more" than their mbti type ;).....
yes, I have also had the impression that enfp is possible, would have been my first guess.....entp might also be possible, but I'm a little more on the f-side :)....or maybe a very close t-f split, as you say....

I can usually boil people down to two letters very quickly... then have trouble with the rest. ExxP's are easy to spot, look for very random extraverted people. But the problem with ExxP's are that the random is almost *too* random... it would appear to outsider's as almost without focus. And that's where the issue is.

It's difficult to spot F-T especially in the minority for the gender, ie, F in males can be difficult to spot sometimes... as society teaches them to be Ts. N vs. S, is always the worst for me to decide. I type them 'N' if we get each others train of thoughts, and 'S' if you get stuck on the details of the situation. And even that isn't a sure thing, because lots of us N's have developed Se or Si... and my typed S friends can discuss politics and philosophy pretty well.

So I dunno. Go with your gut. It's probably right. haha.
