    Default Chris Langan - Highest IQ

    Chris Langan is probably either INTJ or INTP and 5w4 or 5w6 so/sp or sp/so but I will welcome other possibilities for his type. He is the record highest IQ holder in America.

    I feel sorry for him.

    He seems extremely intelligent....but he still cannot escape the trappings of mental stew that many very intelligent people suffer from. Lots of theory...little action.

    But of course action is not the be all end all. Maybe that will always be the danger for the highly intelligent, when you can think upon multiple levels and frameworks at once, it becomes hard to act upon any one idea.

    Maybe im fortunate that I am not possessed of too much intelligence, it sounds like torture.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I have seen this video before. Was it posted on this forum? I've read about him too.

    Felt quite sorry when I read about his childhood.

    Some of us are so lucky to come from healthy families and some others are so unlucky.

    Sigh!

    I would guess he is INTP.

    Regarding the subject of 'Intelligence Tests', it had been found out by researches that out of all intelligence tests 'Emotional Intelligence' tests show the highest correlation between success and having high results.

    I felt more sorry when I saw him on that abomination of a tv show 1 Vs. 100.

    Some Te type. He has some latent Fi maybe with his sense of unity and humanitarianism and whatever, but it's all serving a heavy authoritarian outlook. So it's not truly unified.. just unified under his systems. And whatever can't be unified gets thrown in his eugenics program. lol. He bucks status quo, and has a rebellious attitude, so he isn't SJ. At the same time, it's self absorbed rebellion. His Se is for himself. He thinks everyone else has too much freedom.

    I have seen him before and he actually seems like an estx of some kind in other interviews my personal take (well to be fair I saw the video like 5 years ago).

    I always liked this guy who is clearly an infp

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    How is Daniel Tammet clearly INFP? Because he's mild-mannered and polite? He seems to be an introverted sensing intellectual type.

    In socionics terms, I'm pretty sure he'd be an ISTj...
