I was thinking about dividing history by arstistic-intelectual periods rather than economic ones, and got this idea: define the type/role that was the dominant in each historic period.
For example, the Enlightenment Age is clearly NTJ, with a rational and functional view over both politics, philosophy and sciences, breaking with the conventional statements and seeking the most functional and free way to see the world. It's possible also to see the two principal characters of this age: the Scientist-Philosopher (INTJ) and the Enlightened Despot(ENTJ).
I've made a quick list of periods, based on the Art Periods*(starting from Middle Ages for more precise description, but not limited to):
Middle Ages: SFJ (guardian with feeling rather than thinking)
Renaissance: NTx (I'd say NTP for both the "Davincian Genius"(INTP) and the Artist-Engineer(ENTP)
Victorian or Romantic: NFx?
Industrial or Realist: STJ
Modern I(1900-1950?): NFx?
Modern II(1950-nowadays?): STP (the tipical heros from most modern novel books are always rule-breaking SPs, while the villains are SJs)
Comments and Ideas?
*: Each language and country has its own way to divide the art' ages, so my division may be a little tendentious or strange... please help me adapting it to have a more "global" feel.
