    what do you think wittgenstein was? i change my take and go with infj too. his entire life story is never feeling at home in the world. and he was a mystic at heart who hated systematic philosophy. he was poetic. "our language is like an ancient city..."
    Yes, I agree Wittgenstein was INFJ. There's an interesting book that details his behavior and its influence on his philosophy. Here's the link: Amazon.com: Autism and Creativity: Is There a Link between Autism in Men and Exceptional Ability?: Mich Fitzgerald: Books

    Although, I'm curious why you said INFP. Could you explain?

    Damm, beat me to it - except that it was my own deduction as I hadn't read that before! Definitely TJ, probably I from what we know of his personality, however an Ni primary seems a little unlikely given his strongly mechanistic philosophy, marked disdain for abstract reasoning, and apologism for authoritarian government and maintenance of what equated to the political status quo.

    ISTJ fits very well for me.

    Could Jeremy Bentham, the brash early Utilitarian stuffy moralists of the time loved to hate, have been an ESTP? His dismissal of the notion of inherent rights as "nonsense on stilts" screams Se and Ti.
    Autistic INFP

    Aristotle was an INTJ, Socrates was an INTP.

    I believe Schopenhauer is INFJ. I think it's been discussed before.

    Why INTP for Kant? Kant was incredibly organized very driven. His writing and what we know of his life strike me as very INTJ.

    ENFP sounds very reasonable for Plato though.
