 Hi, this type question is for a friend. Here goes:

He's quiet, but not shy. He won't be the one to make all the jokes or to bring people together for a social activity, but he'll usually participate. He's always tag along and try to fit into the group. I'm his closest friend, but he doesn't really confide in me-- I sort of take care of him. 

He comes from a broken family but he doesn't feel sorry for himself or really talk about it. I don't ask about it, but sometimes he gets very sad. At these times, I sit with him and maybe hug him, but we don't talk much. He misses his mom a lot, but he hasn't seen her since he was six or seven. He's been on his own since he was maybe thirteen, but still doesn't seem that good at taking care of himself. I have to make sure he's safe, stick up for him, defend him, etc. He's kind of vulnerable, but doesn't try to come off that way.

He sometimes makes impulsive decisions. I've very rarely heard him think anything through, or plan ahead. He just decides to do something and does it, and stops doing it when he feels like it. I don't think he even knows where he's going to be six months from now.

I can't decide whether he's sensitive or not. He won't eat meat because he can't stomach the thought of eating animals, and sometimes cries when he's upset, but doesn't talk about his feelings or anything. He's smokes, does some drugs and takes some risks, but it doesn't seem like he does it to be cool. I feel like he doesn't even notice or care about the risks. There are not many things in the world he really cares about. For example, I can't think of a single song or movie he's ever said he liked. Mostly, he'd like to have his family back and be taken care of. 

When he's in a good mood, he likes to play along with people's jokes. He likes to watch TV, no particular show, but mostly comedy. He likes to laugh, and is a nice guy to talk to, because he'll never interrupt. 

Hopefully, you guys can make something of this.

Sounds like an INFP to me. The biggest guess for me was the N, though something about the description read more along the lines of inuitive rather than hard-line sensing to me.

Not an easy guess, not much info on motivation. I'd say 4w5 or maybe 6w7.

He sounds like a pure-blooded INFP. Take good care of him!
