He used Ti to decide to help his people and Se to be such an amazing speaker. He also used his Se on his many mistresses. He is the ISTP I identify with most.The Rowdy Gentleman That's his shadowtypeThe ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

. King is an extrovert both behaviorally and in Jungian sense. I think he is a very good example of how ENFJ visionaries influence and change societies.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Martin Luther King Jr.. INFJs are less adept to do so and are more driven their personal vision than their need to influence society on their visions which is reverse for ENFJs.I watched the interview you linked and it actually makes me more sure of ENFJ.Which of the 16 personality types is Martin Luther King Jr.?. Here's a Gandhi interview for comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gpRJp82GXc; I'm not saying all INFJs will be as quiet as this, but it's clear that MLK's not even remotely like that. I actually found MLK to be very gregarious in the interview you linked, he didn't seem at all overwhelmed by the attention (in fact he seemed to feed off of it somewhat) and he rarely paused to measure his words or collect his thoughts. What he means by "change in the psyche of the negro" is an increase in racial confidence and dignity, which an extrovert would esteem as well. He's talking about the race's collective psyche, nothing to do with subjective perspective. ENFJs can be men of vision and purpose too, they just will hold looser and more flexible visions that are rooted more in society itself than in their own psyche. As to how MLK was in everyday life, I'd like to note that he was a proud member of a fraternity.Oh, and I'm surprised he wasn't type 8w9 like contemporary enneagram says, haha. I dunno if I see it but I am sure that he is social first. I first thought sx last but he is syn-flow, bringing others together in an so/sx way. Compare him to Malcolm X, sx/so bringing others apart and more demonizing of white people, rejecting aspects of their humanity contraflow style. So/Sx fits, I think.INFJ, along with Gandhi and Mandela. Clear INFJ especially if you look at interviews. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9md0Fa5eik Look at how quickly he feels overwhelmed by the cheering when they introduce him. Also, he is more clearly a man of vision and purpose than he is an emotional influencer. Think of how he'd be in everyday life, not just his role in the civil rights movement as a motivational speaker (which is why many think ENFJ). He looks reserved and less gregarious than ENFJs and isn't as emotional or dramatic as Fe dom. Vision and purpose are aided with the ability of emotional effect, not the other way around. He says in that interview that the greatest change at that point was the internal change in the psyche of the negro. That is a subjective focus (related to the inner world) and Ni focus whereas ENFJs put more weight in actual objective changes in reality as extroverts. Very clear introvert, energetically as well. Introverts can bring their subjective focus to the world to make changes, too.
