    When I first came across @Korg, I wondered if he was some kind of extroverted sensor, because the Se was so evident, but upon further reading there's simply too much intellectual force or self-generated inertia behind his positions. There's some Ni-Fi in service to the Te. Sensors don't tend to have that. Strong Se is well-within the bounds of what ENTJs are, though - Pin is like that, for instance.

    ENTJs can also be pretty introverted. The brute fact of intuitive neurophysiology can't be ignored with these types, and like most EN types their acetlycholine pathways are going to be pretty balanced compared to their dopamine pathways, meaning that they're often torn between pursuing real-world kicks (dopa) and the rewards of intellectual intensity (acetyl). They're ambiverts, though I'm sure it's possible for them to fall on one side or another. 'Truer' introverts (IN) will pursue more acetylcholine, and 'truer' extroverts (ES) more dopamine. ENxxs are pretty much always in conflict with themselves over this, which is often a source of their peculiar neuroticism.

    My best fit for Korg, therefore, would be ENTJ.

    Reminds me of Guy Pearce or somebody like that. I wonder if it was his lower face they used in the picture.

    @Korg is an ENTJ. Living with the man for a number of years has exposed
    me to lots of opportunities for observation! My dear lad uses Te-Ni literally
    every morning as we check our spreadsheets and plot our data for the day!

    And I agree with @Hostarius that there is some Fi to Korg, I would say it
    is his least -naturally- utilized function. It's there, but he doesn't initially
    engage it and has learned to recognize using this skill more and more as
    he has gotten older. It's interesting to have seen him develop this over
    the years. He occasionally comes to me asking for advice on how to deliver
    things where they will be perceived in a more... "kind" (for lack of better
    word here) way. He recognizes in his gut something may be upsetting
    but he is going to say what he needs to.

    I could literally go on about how Korg utilizes Te+Ni so heavily but no
    one has the time for that. I am glad that @Odyne sees it as well, though
    obviously she and Korg have had a close friendship so she has had
    more exposure to his personality as I have had as well.

    He is not an INTJ. Neither his Ni or Fi is developed enough for that.
    Te is his primary function.

    Korg: "I don't like socializing"

    Will socialize with people for hours.

    you just don't like socializing with people youve
    no interest in, not that you don't like being social.
    This isn't what defines introverts/extroverts!!
    functions @Korg!!! functions!!!!!
