    Default How accurate is CelebrityTypes?

    http://www.celebritytypes.com/philosophers/index.php

    The website is linked above if you wish to visit it.

    Anyway I'm highly skeptical of the validity of this website and many of its potential mistypings.

    If you think someone is mistyped mention who they are and what you think their real type might be.

    I will mention at least one that I know for sure is mistyped and that is Baruch Spinoza. They have him typed as INFJ though I would think if he is not INTP then nobody is. Why? Because his entire book called "The Ethics" revolves completely around logical axioms and well defined categories which is about as Ti as someone can possibly get, not to also mention that Spinoza was Einstein's favorite philosopher and Einstein is the INTP poster boy. Let me prove their striking similarities in ideology as well as personality via videos below:

    Yeah, pretty much this. It's the same with any site (including this one) - because it's not like you can definitively prove any of it in the first place, as there aren't any objective, agreed-upon means of typing someone as one and only one type, with zero possibility of being another.

    Yes. Type is pretty much like artistic value.

    The above thread has some good typing speculations I would say though I think many of those typings were taken from CelebrityTypes so how accurate they are would probably largely depend on the validity of that site.

    Okay so far folks are saying that Typology rests on too shaky of foundations for anything including the predicted personality types of famous people to be conclusive. Does anyone else have similar thoughts or even thoughts to the contrary?

    It's done by two of our forum members, so why don't you ask them?


    I'm not going to tell you who they are in case they don't want to be outed, but their types are INTJ and ENTP. I'll letchya sort through the members list and guess.

    Some of them make sense to me, and some do not. Mark Steyn is listed as an ENTJ, but reading him or listening to him is like getting blasted with a Ne firehose.
