    I'd also like to add that obviosly any function can 'lend itself to psychology', including extraverted sensing.

    Somewhere in the back pages this has been covered. I think the types people guessed ranged from ISFP to ESFJ and many others, but no conclusion was made.

    I would say an Extrovert of some sort, especially if he equated Introversion to narcissism. This would probably mean an ENFX, if he views narcissism as a negative thing.

    DEFINITELY an N, probably introverted, if you read some of his other ideas, he comes off as a T. I'm going J, but who knows. INTJ is my uneducated guess.

    I'd tend to go with INFJ.

    Judging by the fact that he actually gave up sex in order to sublimate his energy I would say he was an INXJ.

    omg, that's hilarious!
    but, of course, he was also encouraging his patients to masturbate

    see: website by PBS on his life

    After watching the extraordinarily well done full-length video done by PBS on his life, he is without a doubt:

    *very logical; detached emotions from his logic (although he had strong emotions) (xNTx)
    *most strongly motivated by the need to achieve; be seen as a genius (xNTx)
    *a devoted romantic (they showed some of his love letters to his wife when they were courting) but he ended up spending more time on his work than his relationships (xNTx)
    *driven to apply his ideas to reality (xNTJ); i.e. it was not enough to fully understand, he HAD to apply it
    *he revolutionized the way people approached "hysteria" and laid the foundations for a wave of understanding psychological patterns (abuse, somatoform disorders, conversion disorders, mood disorders, etc.) xNxx.

    He seemed more introverted to me, however, he is without a doubt an xNTJ.

    *Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason once accepted, despite your changing moods.

    After studing the matter through many sources I am still not certain.

    I think that

    1 He was probably too neurotic to really fit with a given type
    2 He was probably too much of a genius to fit with a given type

    But here's what I think:

    E (fairly obvious)
    N (by a small margin)
    T (extremely obvious)
    J (only by an extremely small margin)

    and with Jung:

    I (extremely obvious)
    N (extremely obvious)
    T (fairly obvious)
    P (very obscure)

    actually, MBTI doesnt really seem to fit with Jung's personality. Ironic, huh?

    I think the most accurate describtion of Jung is that he was an INTP with dominant Ni
