Sorry for the delay, I’ve been a bit weird. I finally did my homework and had a look at DDL again and the impression I get from him is very different: there’s heaviness, charm and more deliberation. Sparkling eyes.
Back to this Tom Davison guy: I’m pretty sure he’s an INFP now. There’s that lightness, innocence, I’m bad at describing these impressions because words can’t really explain it. It’s very frustrating. But INFJ he is not.
On a side note, after reading the ‘INFJ –INFJ relationships’ topic the forum prompted me to, watching the Jeff Buckley video triggered something that made me realise that the ENFJs I supposedly felt so drawn to are more likely INFJs? --Think actors like James Franco, Jason Ritter… I’m pretty sure about Franco, Ritter seems more at peace with himself somehow, is that what healthy INFJ is like? – Damn, I didn’t need to know this about myself right now!
The videos you posted are tricky, because they are almost all performing in a way or another. I’m usually searching for more ‘genuine’ interviews to get a better sense of the person.
***Disclaimer: I’m lazy and will base these attempts at typing on superficial information.
I’ll skip the first because I’m not sure which one you think might be INFJ.
Maria Popova - oh, I just realised who she was!! I enjoy reading Brain Pickings and I thought the name sounded familiar! I think she might be INFP? She doesn’t seem to have a connection with the audience; the talk is very personal somehow.
Simon Sinek – first impression is that I’m hesitating between xSFJ and xNTP, but I’ll go with ISFJ. ENTP-ish ISFJ.
Josh Waitzkin – hmm, it’s difficult to get a definite vibe from him. He reminds me of some people I know in real life whom I also don’t know where to put. I see hunches of ENFP, hunches of INTP and I think that’s what happens when we are looking at an INFP man in disguise.
These are my two cents, fwiw they’re all very healthy/self-actualised people and that’s nice to watch, regardless of their type.
