      In the book he's constantly trying to find ways to interact with people, and he's constantly around them (at least in the beginning when he still lives on the campus). AND he makes phonecalls just for fun. I could never do that, lol

    In regards to the xNTP votes, Holden seemed to have more of a moral/peaceful stance towards things and wanted moral purity and authenticity above all else, something I fail to see in Ti users as well as fail to desire myself as a Ti aux, focusing instead on logical over moral truths. Another thing is that in my experience Ti/Fe cares a lot more what people think of them, craves outer opionions, and has a much harder time staying true to themselves, instead acting what they percieve to appear acceptable/admirable (Fe-Ti) or cool/competent (Ti-Fe) in a given situation. Holden doesn't have this mindset, he believes more in a personal pureness of who someone is at the core, and has an obsession with moral and personal truth. He isn't too absorbed in how he's percieved by others, and wishes others would be less "phony" and feel the same way.

      I was re-reading Catcher in the Rye and I could see how some people think ENFP. His thoughts are all over the place and INFP writing has more structure I suppose? At least that fits with the Fi-dom INFP narrative.

      "He just didn’t want to be a complicated adult, he wanted to live in a pure world like the rye with a catcher that he had imagined many times, and he wanted to be that catcher to protect all the naive kids like himself. His dream was so beautiful but unrealistic, and what he reacted to the “phony world” was just so normal."

      And this dream of his doesn't seem very 5.

      I don't really see whats so dom Fi about him, I saw it more as a strong aux. He saw behind the scenes, possiblilities, and had his own form of meta thinking first and foremost, judging the ideas/observations according to morals shortly after. I also chalk feeling like an outsider among a world of fake people more up to just being an intuitive than I do to having Fi or an Fi narrative (why else would so many NTPs and INFJs relate to such a feeling, its just the observation that people are fake bothers us much less than it would an Fi user).

      Enneagram is a toss up between 4w5 and 5w4, although I can definately see an argument for 1w9.

      A 1? Did you read the book? Holden would be anti-1 I'd think. He'd see them as uptight preachy phonies who probably didn't believe half of what they claim to stand for.

      I equate e1 to moral uprightness and purity, excuse me if I'm off I'm much less interested in the enneagram

    I could sell my journals/pages, call it catcher in the rye, and nobody would notice the difference
