In general, ENTP would be more aggressive than ENFP but I guess you can have some rare cases where it isn't the case. This isn't my rationale, but out of the NP's, INTP makes the least sense. Makes him more of a contrast to Paul, who was definitely definitely definitely SFJ and it astounds me that anyone would think he was any kind of P. As for him being a sarcastic smartass, that isn't exclusive to T types. Hum, Strawberry Fields Forever. What happened to Lennon was this, he went through several cycles of his personality as a child to read a lot, live in their abstract world and be quite repressed by his relatives, he had not a shred of self-confidence, with time Lennon was already sick of it and decided to change, and so took the bad boy personality over time he became sick again and joined the peace and love doing like a synthesis of his personality.

All you need is love or Imagine are not about him either, they are very impersonal songs but he could very well be talking to himself, engaging himself to change. Working Class Hero is probably his most Fi sounding song, but that's not to add to the discussion. His songwriting is simple. I think he's an introvert who tries to embody this persona. People listen to imagine and assume he must have been an NF but if you truly analyze his personality I think he seems more xNTP. Ya he's ENTP or INTP. And it's not like FI users were the only one being able to reflect on their incapacities anyway. He was a schizoïd and often an insensitive asshole. So no idea, lol. And the Beatles were in the crow's nest of that ship. Also the evidence he's more of a feeler than thinker:. ", "It's weird not to be weird. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. The thing is, I don't think being warm around close ones has anything to do with Fe or Fi.

For Fi doms it may come to authenticity of emotional values but that does not mean they are the only type being faithful to theses values. Non-conformism can take many shapes and forms and can be associated with more than one types but if one cognitive function is especially about non-conformity, uniqueness and individuality its Fi, which Lennon shows alot. What I meant with the Fe/Fi dichotomy in EXXP types is that I found in real life that while ENTPs (and ESTPs too) may outwardly look more cynical towards humanity in general, more individualistic, they will actually care more about their friends whereas ENFPs (and ESFPs too) may pretend to like people, to be concerned by humanity, showing themselves as idealists when in fact they can be very self-centered and egoist.

The fluxus, the happenings, it's conceptual and devoided of the authenticity NF types strive for. ENFP is more like it. When it comes to ENP I think he was an unhealthy one in a loop, considering his behavior. I'm not absolutely sure but I think he's not NT. I can see clear Ne-Fi as well Te aggressiveness to him which makes a good case for ENFP. No violence in ENFP. But overall I have to say ENTP. "All you need is love" "Imagine" "Woman" "Give peace a chance" The list goes on. He tolled others to be pacifist, instead of writing about his struggles with not being able to be one. Or was he simply an hypocrite in his soul, as well as in his actions. Ono is not a feeler. Now the more I read his quotes, the more I believe him to be more of an INFP now.

This split in vote is quite ridiculous, he's something between ENTP and INFP. He poses as an idealist while being a tough selfish guy in real life, sometimes even capricious. I say either xstp or xnfj. Surrealism to me is reality. It all exists, even if it's in your mind.

I assume Ne-Te would make more sense, because in his Beatles period he didn't have that histrionic and attention seeking attitude that Ne-Fe looping ENFPs have, but rather a very aggressive 'bad-boy' thing to him that unhealthy EFPs can have. Makes sense now.
