    I thought of one against him being an ENTP.

    Socrates is known for being extremely modest which would be very unusual for an ENTP.

    I'll start:

    INTP: Indulged in solitary meditations where he neglected his appearance and social appointments.

    INTP: Very Ti-driven in dissecting the arguments of others.

    ENTP: Died talking, and died of talking.

    ENTP: Philosophical doctrine is extensive rather than deep.

    Etc.

    PS: To the people who would problematize the historical source material on Socrates, these are the sources that I consider the most historically acurate:

    * Apology * Charmides * Crito * Euthyphro * Ion * Laches
    * Lesser Hippias * Lysis * Menexenus * Protagoras

    Works that _cannot_ be used to type the historical Socrates:

    * Republic * Laws

    I'm curious about how one would be able to type Socrates without actually observing his projected personality.
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    Interestingly, however, it was drinking that stopped him from talking.

    I read that he is E because he seems I through Plato, who was I. I personally feel that an Introvert like Plato would represent an Extrovert as a very big personality.
    Anyway, Socrates never wrote anything down, which seems more an I because an Extrovert is focused on the outside world and would seek to record in the outside world anyway. Basically INTP is superior to ENTP.
