    Default What type is the scientist?

    So I thought about making a thread about different scientists and what type the people of TC think they might be.

    Please contribute to the thread with suggestions for scientists. Written or videoclip form.

    We'll start with this guy, he starts talking about 2 minutes into it.

    Holger Nielsen is an INFJ.

    Peter Higgs is an ENTP? I see Ti-Fe. I thought INFJ but he seems more "externally active" than internal even though he is talking. I can't tell whether Ne or Ni. But based on E/I motions, he seems E.

    Nielsen comes across as an INFJ scientist. The way he's moving his eyebrows expressively with what he's talking about, along with the smiling, speaks Fe to me, except there's something that gives me an introvert vibe about him.

    Peter Higgs, from the way he expresses himself, reads like TiNe. Very logical train of thought, giving explanations of physics concepts in clear to understand language.

    I just think he's really excited about his Ni and how he's "pushing" it so much. So, Ni is prioritized over Fe.

    You think INTP? Hand gestures and constant eye contact makes me think E. But he is old.

    Yeah, reminds me of how I get excited over scientific stuff.

    Could be ENTP too. It's a hard call, cos he's got the British reserve, but I see some sort of NeTi, or TiNe thing going on with this guy.
