Introverted Sensing (Si): Brock has no issue whatsoever with doing the menial but necessary chores around the camp while on his journey, with no help from anyone else.  His knowledge of Pokemon is encyclopedic; he knows the attacks, types, preferred diets, and many other things about a vast number of different Pokemon species.  He often reads a guidebook prior to arriving at a new city or town, hoping to glean information before he makes it there.  His obsession with all the different Nurse Joys and Officer Jennys is legendary, and he can actually tell the difference between every Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny that he meets.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Brock has a great weakness for attractive women; he falls for girls easily, and is typically very forward about each new crush.  He is visibly disappointed whenever he is rejected, often to the point of crying.  Brock often steps into the role of peacemaker whenever Ash and Misty are arguing.  He has an overriding compassion for all people and Pokemon, and he eventually stops traveling with Ash in order to become a Pokemon doctor.  He typically has a hard time standing up to his parents, whom he always ends up obeying even when he knows they’re pulling a fast one on him.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Brock can solve problems, even when they seem insurmountable at first glance.  Brock gave Ash the strategy he needed to beat Lt. Surge at the Vermillion City Gym, which involved Pikachu defeating its evolved form, Raichu; the key was Pikachu’s speed, which, as Brock was able to deduce, Raichu would likely be unable to match.  He does not rely on prepared food or recipes out of books for either humans or Pokemon, preferring to devise his own.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Brock can see the possibilities of a situation (especially to feed his problem-solving Ti), but he is not very good at reading a person’s motivations or intentions.  When a girl he fell for asked to marry him, he was completely taken aback.  In the Diamond and Pearl series, he had no suspicions that Cyrus was the leader of Team Galactic until the criminal mastermind revealed himself.  However, he can always detect when a given Nurse Joy or Officer Jenny is real or an impostor, even when nobody else can see through the disguise.
