I'm going to have to go with INTJ due to the Ni function. I think if he was an INTP with a functioning Ne function he wouldn't have automatically accepted the truth of gravity almost immediately and would have rather thrown it around his mind as one of many possibilities of why the apple fell.

Of course my analysis is contingent of my ability to bullshit my way in and out of problems, so it is very well possible that I'm wrong. But I'm going to let the INTJ claim him anyway.

Ni
Introverted iNtuiting
"The sense of the future and the realizations that come from introverted iNtuiting have a sureness and an imperative quality that seem to demand action and help us stay focused on fulfilling our vision or dream of how things will be in the future."

Ne
Extraverted iNtuiting
"Using this process, we can juggle many different ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and meanings in our mind at once with the possibility that they are all true."
I don't think the apple story has much truth to it.

If you read the Principia you'll see the amount of thought and struggle that went into formulating his laws (including inventing a way to represent forces that would be invariant under rotations, ans well as the first, and second derivative, which he found repugnant).

I am pretty sure there is a combination of N and T here. Which N and which T is hard to tell.

Your reply is something of a non-sequitor. The apple story has to do with the Theory of Universal Gravitation. Principia has to do with Calculus. Apples and oranges.

i know .. i was just being goofy, couldn't you tell? what can i say it was elementary school .. they taught it alongside the story of george washington and his favorite cherry tree being cut ..

maybe the apple fell cuz somebody cut the tree .. therefore gravity doesn't exist .. :O
