    "The ESTP does not trust their instincts, and is suspicious of other people's intuition as well."

    Portrait of an ESTP

    Sounds like the exact opposite of Kirk to me.

    I have several ENTP friends in real life. They always assume everyone they admire is an ENTP too. You guys are masters at coming up with reasons why something should work (and overlooking why it doesn't) when you want it to be the case.

    Lol. That is pretty funny, but I admire lots of non ENTPs. JLP is my favorite captain, obviously not an ENTP. Sherlock Holmes (book not movie) as well. I admire very few ENTPs actually. There are about 5 that everyone should admire, but past those I don't know. That being said, what type do you think Kirk is then? I'd be glad to tell you why you're wrong ;)

    LOL...you are right, Kirk is ENTP...because I always assume someone I can't stand is one :P

    Now I was not here (only) for trolling...I just rewatched TNG and Enterprise. Picard is totally an INFJ. And Archer an INFP. So I was wrong thinking of all captains as Extroverts.

    This also brings all possible INTJs pgs to female ones...oO

    Actually, Picard was my favourite.

    I have a buddy that has opened me to the possibility that Picard is an INFJ, but I see too much Si in him for that - far too much regulation. Has anyone considered that he might best represent a really well developed ISFJ? Starting at what is customary (Si) moving to what is morally right (Fe) followed by understanding how it works (Ti), but supported by a very strong grasp of possibilities and potentials (Ne)? The same could be the case for ISTJ, if we attribute a very strong Fi and Ne.

    As for Archer, I can see INFP patterns but I can also see ENFJ patterns. Clearly an F-N-S-T approach, probably depending on the writer which functions he is attributed. For example, an ENTP writer might write him as Fe-Ne-Si-Ti because those are the functions the ENTP is familiar with. Also, I have to change my stance. Archer is now one of my favorite Captains.

    T'pol? INTJ or INTP?

    INTJ - The Scientists

    Kirk = ENTP
    Picard = INTJ

    Favourites: Picard, Kirk (TOS, not that prequel film)
    @talemin, how is Picard an INFJ?

    Picard is just kinda of impersonal and orderly, he isn't really a rules lawyer. The first fight of the series that he and Riker have is about Picard ignoring Star Fleet policy and wanting to go down with the away team, and Riker getting annoyed because that isn't a captain's duty. Also, his back story is that he left his family's vineyard and pursued a career that his older brother and father somewhat disproved of because of his strong independence. His brother is very much the SJ who stayed at home and took care of the family legacy while Picard didn't even think of his leaving that way.

    Sisko is definately an INFJ I would say. Most N people learn some S skills if they have an important job within a system because you have to develop them to get along in our very S world. Just off the top of my head, I remember his rivalry with the Vulcan Captain was mostly based on the fact that he thought Vulcan's didn't have any Heart or put their Heart into what they do. That sounds very NF to me. He's a very passionate man, I always thought that from the beginning of the show.

    I'm conflicted about Kirk though, I'm honestly not sure if he's a F or T user. He wasn't gushy, but not all F users are actually. One of the things I've noticed no one's really brought up about Kirk is that he's the Captain with the best people/interpersonal skills really. I never really saw Kirk as a womanizer, he wasn't using them and throwing them away, he always seemed to honestly like all of the women he flirted with. He was more of a charmer I think than some sort of sex maniac.

    T'Pol is probably an INTJ if she's an NT type. She has a lot of strong opinions that she wrestles with which says Te to me.
