    Default The Olsen Twins are INTP????

    Personality Types of Famous People

    How did people think of this?
    Some other strange ones.

    Richard Nixon & Franklin Roosevelt: ENTJ's (Nixon-Introvert, and FDR- definite SP)
    Abraham Lincoln: ENFJ (an introvert for sure and most likely a perceiver as well..)

    Some others seem weird in that respect.
    Chester Arthur-INTJ
    Gerald Ford-INTP

    I don't know much about either of these guys but neither gives off much of an NT vibe from what I know.

    I emailed this website a while ago asking about how they came to the typings they did. I didn't get an answer back for why Olsen Twins=INTP.

    Anyone have any ideas or are there some things I don't know about these people's characters that will lead me into their direction.

    Yeah, I was at the Wikipedia entry for INTP the other day, and saw the Olsen twins listed. A definite WTF moment.

    Ummm... they have him under INTP. Where did ENFJ come from?

    Typing public figures is always an intellectuale excercise or debate more than science. I generally don't put any stock in them. Fictional characters it's a little easier, because they are generally caricatures -- but really there's no way of doing so because they are not real people and you can only guess or make up the motivations for why they do what they do.

    However, INTP would explain the Olsen Twin's haphazard fashion victim/bag lady style. HA. Though I doubt both twins would be the same type.

    Honestly, it usually causes me pain to see guesses about famous peoples' types. Nobody agrees, and there are lots of bizarre theories.
    Like Einstein being an E, or Sun Tzu being an S.
    I can't wait for someone to call Stalin an F.

    Yes, it's all a bit circular isn't it... when people self-identify with eg aristotle, prescribe their own type to him, and then use it as justification for their type.

    Yeah, I can see Mary-Kate as an INTP. She seems to be a little more reserved and introverted, and she seems to have a sly sense of humor.
