In fact, he treats Nick like one of a few friends in his life. I would give you page numbers for that but I don't own the book.
And I beg to differ. The MBTI is all about relationships between family, friends, lovers, any kind of relationship.
*nods* I thought more about Gatsby being introverted after posting, and it does seem to make sense, especially with your latter two points. (I don't seem to remember the first in the text, however. Guess I'll have to go text diving again.)
And MBTI was originally created, if I recall correctly, to place people into a suitable job during wartime for efficiency, and it's still used today for finding suitable positions and figuring out team dynamics. However, beyond that, I haven't seen much work in relationships outside work, such as friendships, or couples. There is a system created by the Typelogic team, but nothing close to the relationship theories present in, for example, socionics, which has general relationships, group dynamics, and couple dynamics as I recall. However, if you know of some resources on MBTI & relationships, it'd really be helpful if you could point me to them. I would love to be proven wrong on this right about now. XD
