    He also looks very similar to my ENTP friend.

    Hmm, this is a pretty interesting match...

    He also looks sort of like NBA star Manu Ginobili, and some have speculated that he also may have been an ENTP:

    Yes, his writing seems to have many INTJ "visionary" elements, seeing possibilities at many levels and exploring where the contingencies could go. There's very good evidence in favor of him being an INTJ, like his thoughts and great world ambitions.

    Yeah exactly.

    Incidentally, I took magic mushrooms before and I could sense where the electricity was going into my phone when I charged it, just exactly where the battery is housed. I hadn't come up fully when I decided to charge my phone, so I was completely in my senses at that point, and know for a fact that the electricity I was sensing was real. The way Tesla was able to project images in his head, sounds like what happens when you trip, and can see images projected on a wall. He had an episode where his senses were so sensitive that he had to put rubber under the legs of his bed, because even the slightest vibration would cause him distress. I'd say whatever parts of the brain are activated when taking mushrooms was the same part responsible for Tesla's genius.

    I found some the other day actually. I'm planning on taking a trip to the hills of Tara in Ireland to see if I can sense any energy there. Maybe it's a crock of shit, maybe it isn't. Only one way to find out. http://www.knowth.com/tara-earth-energies.htm

    "My project was retarded by laws of nature. The world was not prepared for it. It was too far ahead of time.
    But the same laws will prevail in the end and make it a triumphal success." ~ Nikola Tesla

    Nikola tesla is either NiTe or TeNi (visually). And I'll explain why.

    The pictures you guys were talking about above are all actually good examples of the cunning appearance Ni/Se eyes can have. Especially when Ni>Se. In both those pictures though the people have very naturally relaxed faces. In contrast though, nikola has an ever so subtle tension on his face. This is why those people are probably Ti/Fe whereas nikola is Te/Fi.

    Look at for instance the bottom picture here.

    I'm not sure what you mean; are you suggesting that he's a madman, and as such must be diving down crazy Ni holes!?

    Hmm, so I guess Tesla after all probably was an INTJ...

    Well, at least Giordano Bruno is an ENTP, and Ken Wilber an INTP!
