Similarly, atheists see Einstein as someone who was far too bright to be a theist, and use his alleged "atheism" as yet another reaffirmation of their supposed intelligence.
    Einstein was an INTP.

    I do love that Einstein appears to get "diagnosed" with every learning disability/mental disorder imaginable.

    What kind of ISTP doesn't write the Red Book?


    Well, since there's only one author, I guess all of them except Jung....

    Actually, based on his writings he is most likely an INFJ. Too lazy to explain why more than everything he wrote always had such an Ni perspective and focus.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    Well if Carl Jung was an ISTP, he's different than any other one I have ever seen (with the possible exception of me also being a "weird" ISTP).

    I guess a good question to ask on this would be, "Is it possible for ISTPs to develop Schizotypal Personality Disorder?"

    Why does it take 24 pages to type the guy who invented typology?
    Oh yeah: it's a weak theory and essentially meaningless to what most humans do, most of the time.
    Yer welcome!

His description of Fe is the worst of the 8 & filled with the most bias. He compares Te & Ti in a way that sounds like he's got a chip on his shoulder concerning Ti being just as valid as Te (which is how he describes Ti-dom too - with an inferiority complex).

    I think Jung is a Ti-dom, then. His theory focuses less on the auxiliary than "play" between the dominant & inferior though. While most people think the tertiary is the same orientation as the dominant, this was never stated by Jung. Some have suggested the aux & tert are both of the same orientation, which would make distinctions between many types very minor (ie. an IxTP would be very possible). It's possible Jung didn't even think the functions besides the dom & inferior have orientations at all (although that the aux is opposite is implicated pretty clearly to most). In which case, I could see him as simply identifying as a Ti-dom with a preference for iNtuition, without needing to define more than that because perhaps he thought it's not defined that way in a person's psychology. He DID state he had a stronger preference for thinking & intuition than sensing or feeling. That came straight from the man's mouth. Sure, he could get his own type wrong or believe it changes, but that's even less founded speculation than thinking he is Ti-N.

    I just don't see him as INFJ, not interviews or in his writing. He writes with a kind of heavy-handedness that sounds more like a Ti-dom than a Ni-dom. I don't see his as an ISTP either, certainly not in MBTI. His outward expression sounds like he extroverts iNtuition to me, not Sensing. So yes, I type him as INTP, or closest to that.
    I don't pretend to know what type Jung was, but I think OrangeAppled presents the strongest case for INTP I've ever seen.
