    Very likely INTP with a strong N and mild T. (I'm also italian and I've watched countless interviews with him as main character, sometimes unwillingly)

    I think that quote shows more of an interest in human nature (on a more mechanial and generalized, systematic level) and the way reality is constructed in the brain than a disregard for or disinterest in "the truth".

    He comes across comparatively warm and jovial, but that might be Fe plus some cultural elements.

    Here, for the sake of contrast, is another author and public intellectual (and like Eco another favorite writer of mine) with a similar level of Ne who has a more controlled facade (Indian culture and Oxbridge education) but who - I think - might be an ENFP underneath it.

    Out of curiosity, why the Six wing? Is it due to his interest in analyzing current events and social phenomena?

    I do agree with So/Sp or Sp/So, though - he's quite interested in the sociopolitical arena (So) and has a kind of fascination with the storage of information, so to speak (Sp). At least, that's what I see in the writings of his that I've read...
    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

    granted, the things he write about seem INTP, but i still thinks that he keeps dropping ENFP-like things, like this:

    I love The Name of the Rose, I don't think an ENFP could have written it (which is not to say I don't enjoy ENFP authors, just that they don't write books of this nature.) I only watched about 7 minutes of the video but he vibes INTP to me as well.

    I would probably have to go with INFP.

    He has that 'information-collecting' thing I associate strongly w/ INTPs... I found Name of The Rose really annoying when I had to read it
