    That's a tough one as well. When I thought INTJ, I considered the entire spectrum - ISTP, ISTJ, INTP, INTJ.

    I got what I wrote from this that you posted,

    “It might be inferred that I am alluding to the curvature of space supposed to exist according to the teachings of relativity, but nothing could be further from my mind. I hold that space cannot be curved, for the simple reason that it can have no properties. It might as well be said that God has properties. He has not, but only attributes and these are of our own making. Of properties we can only speak when dealing with matter filling the space. To say that in the presence of large bodies space becomes curved, is equivalent to stating that something can act upon nothing. I, for one, refuse to subscribe to such a view.“

    and

    "The theory wraps all these errors and fallacies and clothes them in magnificent mathematical garb which fascinates, dazzles and makes people blind to the underlying errors. The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king. Its exponents are very brilliant men, but they are metaphysicists rather than scientists. Not a single one of the relativity propositions has been proved.”

    He dismisses, even though the math is fine, the notion of relativity simply because it doesn't make sense.

    Okay, I'll give it to you; Tesla may very well have been an ISTP.

    I see we have much more yet to learn...

    Tesla internally visualised mechanical structures and how all the parts fit together to make the whole. This seems to be a good indicator for Ti. Se makes much more sense than Ne, so that's why I agree with ISTP.

    Yeah. A lot of his predictions were grounded in mechanics as well - the manners in which battle would be fought, the nature of future energy sources, etc.

    ^ This as of now is my best guess on Tesla's type as well.
    INTJ because he was a visionary.
    5w6 because he was investigative.
    sp/so because he was resourceful.
