    I read that Jung was INTP and Freud was INFJ.

    Given that Freud considered introversion a mental illness, I'd say he was an extravert.

    I've heard that also, but have reservations.

    LOL

    One thing i'm certain of concerning Freud is that his emotional world was Fi not Fe. He projected his own emotional framework onto his theory big time and used the complete absense of external emotional cues as a technique. He seems much more strongly T than F as well.

    It is funny on these sites dominated by introverts that there is a continual assumption that leaders and performers are introverts. That can indeed happen, but it's a rare combo and usually their life reveals their true introversion with some clarity. I agree there isn't much in Freud's life to suggest introversion over extroversion. Remember the significant majority of people are extroverts. Introverts that go down in history often deal with ideas in more isolation that don't involve other people. There are a number of writers who are introverts. People who can play the crowd or work extensively with people are going to tend to be extroverts far more often than not.

    Introverts can be quite self-hating. Introverted criticism of introversion is likely to be more harsh and poignant.

    I kind of see him as very similar to Lenore Thompson and Katherine Briggs who I believe were both INFJs.

    This website claims Freud as an INFJ.

    Famous likely INFJs include: Thomas Jefferson (whose creativity, genius, and idealism helped to forge the Republic, even though his own aristocratic value system was different from that of the Constituition he helped to author); Jimmy Carter (whose Introversion kept him from being understood, and whose iNtuitive-Feeling preference enabled him to be a powerful mediator in bringing Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat to an accord); and Sigmund Freud (whose iNtuitive psychological theories revolutionized the world, and whose strong Feeling preference kept him working to help people his entire life, although others' criticism of his work made him ever more rigidly entrenched in his own beliefs).
    I think Frued is a good candidate for Ni. A lot of anecdotes I've read about him makes him seem introverted.

    I actually think he was projecting what he perceived to be societal frameworks into his theory (a lot of people believed that people were inherently savages and needed to be "cultured" to not end up in that state), not his own desires.

    "We know that Jung once told a colleague that his Dominant function was Introverted Thinking. That means he was either an ISTP or an INTP. Jung was certainly abstract rather than concrete, so it seems safe to hold him up as an example of an INTP." Vol. 2 No. 3 (Winter 1985) of The Type Reporter (page 10)

    The term is not the thing.

    What is today described as parapsychology has nothing to do with Jung.

    Unless you get caught up with semantics.

    The appellation is a misdemeanour.

    I read somewhere Jung didn't agree too much on him being typed as an INTP, he is mentioned as an INTJ.
    Jung sometimes seems to (as if for supposed societal requiredness, to mimick society's confusal of terms) 'mess up' terms.
    With saying of himself introverted thinking was his dominant function he might as well have meant introverted intuition.

    Freud is held to have been an extravert, as is Goethe (in Jung's books both pointed out as opposites of introverts), and both are often typed as introverts (e.g. INFJ), while I think Goethe might have been ENFJ (He's more expressive of his need to be alone, making it conditional for having to have a certain goal to work towards). Could Freud have been ENTJ (seen from the reactions here, so both having T, Fi and Ni)?

    jung was without doubt INFJ. if he was T, he would not have the ability to understand people as well as he did.
