Due to the fact that these 'Larin Video Series Clear Examples' threads were created as places for us to post clear examples of types and not wrong typings hehe ^^, and also due to the fact that these threads were becoming a big big mess (see conversation about it: cognitivetype.boards.net/thread/793/) in that thread we came to the conclusion that it's better that members post a celebrity or youtuber-celeb [create a thread with his/her name] in the board 'Reading Practice & Celebrity Typing' and only after a consensus involving discussion of signals should we post videos here.
So, if you think someone is a clear example of a CT, instead of posting the person here, open a thread with the person's name (in case the person is not there yet) here: cognitivetype.boards.net/board/7/readers
Being the first type-specific video of the series I made it shorter than I should have (was gauging length). So I'll post a couple more examples of NiTe. These will probably be annotated in the future and added to the video if it is ever reuploaded:
I've actually been wondering about him for a while and meaning to look into it. Another site tailored to musicians I came across before this one had has him pegged as their poster-child ENTP (which is now quite funny).
Aubrey Plaza: I know she's already been typed, but I thought this was a pretty good video. Unlike every other video that I've seen of her, she seems to be acting naturally here (because everyone stops acting for DP/30). It's a good example of NiTe.
jason13, GREAT FIND. I'm still not stoked about you posting "maybe" types on these Larin Series pages for discussion, but your no less guilty than the 18 million other people who did it. Seems like the wrong board for discussion (ie Some Clear Videos) In fact I was about to say thank you for posting someone who IS a clear example. Then I watched the video and had my world rocked...
All kidding aside.... wtf is up with Aubrey's eyes from about 1:45 to 3:30.... THOSE DO NOT LOOK Ni... am I wrong? Is that not textbook Ne Toggling? Classified as a body language indicator of cross contextualization in the neocortex. The premise I was going on until 30 seconds ago was that is the CLEAREST indicator of Ne, and something Ni users DO NOT do....
Is there an Aubrey Plaza thread somewhere, because the only place I found her was listed on the celebrity types database. It says Erifrail and Alerith typed her. I am assuming they didnt see this video....
I saw that too. I assumed that it was just Se exploring. On the "Summary of Basic Signals" pdf, one of the Se signals is "eyes sharply dart around upward (at mild rate) to explore". That is what it looks like to me. I don't see why Ni/Se users would not cross-contextualize, but then again, I don't really have a good idea of how Ni and Se actually work. I don't think that I use those functions, and I haven't seen any solid definitions for them like I have for Si and Ne. There are other signals that suggests Ni/Se: the constant zone-outs to the side, the eyes peeled to the brim of the sockets, the piercing stares, and the eyes looking to the sides with the head (without moving in their sockets). I agree that the signals are not as clear in this video, but that is to be expected with people who have strong development of more than one function (in her case, Ni and Se).
I felt bad about some of the "maybe" typings that I posted around here. I've been trying to post more "obvious" examples (such as FeSi Hugh Jackman, FeNi Aaron Tveit, NeFi Greta Gerwig, FiSe Win Butler, SiFe Paul Rudd). I usually won't post someone in this section now unless I've watched at least a half hour worth of video of them (using several different videos because people will emphasize different aspects of their personality in different situations). And yes, I've noticed that I am not the only one. The purity of these threads was violated long before I got here.

yah man the threads is no big deal, and I'm certainly not the king of them. I basically stop scrolling through them after Erifrail's posts are finished to be honest. There are only like 4 or 5 people on here who actually know what they are doing now that Erifrail and Alerith arent actively participating. So I pretty much just ignore everyone else and only chime in if i think I have something useful to contribute, want to help settle a dispute, or need to ask a question. I'm not much good beyond seeing the 4 functions someone uses. The J/P E/I is a tough tell to be sure!
I've seen the reference to "eyes sharply dart around upward (at mild rate) to explore" indicator and think this HAS to be a poorly worded (unspecific) description of when Se users are observing the REAL environment and not accessing their Ni world view. The link above talks about why it isnt possible to have both. I could be wrong on this, but if I'm understanding the "Neuroscience of Personality - Nardi" correctly, (and to some extent Erifrail on the above link) Ni users do not cross contextualize. My theory is that for someone who uses Ni to cross contextualize like Aubrey did there would take years of focus practice in creative conceptualization/comparison/outside the box thinking. It would be like an Ne lead being good at meditation. haha an NeTi usually cant even SIT still let alone meditate. With years and years of practice though, I bet its possible. Maybe break out the 10,000 hours rule.
I think its possible that drugs that actively change the chemistry of the brain might be really screwing with this forum. Lots of drugs today mess around with neurotransmitters. If this is the only video where she is doing that out of everything we have on her... I wouldn't be surprised if she is on some sort of stimulant and this is an exception to the rule.
She is a wonderful example of someone who to me seems to show signals for EVERY function. Im not touching this one with a 10 foot pole.
As strange as this sounds, if a girl like this walked up to me now-a-days and we started talking, even though she is super cute i would probably not even CONSIDER dating her because i cant figure out even 1 function. Having little to go on for how to relate to someone can be a real roadblock!!
