    NTJ. The comment about Harry Potter, that's more of an NTJ thing. To me, the fact that he would even consider that indicates that he's stuck on this "vision"' of how humanity can be improved by eliminating theism, or, it seems, any form of thinking that isn't based on some empirical fact. And that includes speculation, analysis, imagination and theorizing in addition to religious faith. All of those things frequently operate without hard evidence.

    I really have a hard time seeing Ne being that confined. Ti-Ne would rather use logic or analysis to explain something, not facts. Ni-Te needs facts, and has a harder time operating without hard evidence, even if an idea is 100% logically sound.

    Actually, not only is he an NTJ, he seems like an absurd caricature of one.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I'm digging up this thread again, because as I was looking through the forum for CognitiveTypes (whom specialize in visual reading), I came across their thread for clear videos of the TeSi.

    http://cognitivetype.boards.net/thre...i-clear-videos (2nd video.)

    So it appears they regard Richard as one. I'm inclined to agree with them. I always wondered about his excessive blinking eyes being an indicator of Si. He does seem to be a rather concrete person in general, even if the area in which he works is regarded as abstract. @superunknown, it appears you were right to say ESTJ after all.

    I'm not sure I'm a fan of VI. The conclusion is substantiated by his approach to reality alone. Regardless, I'll take the win.

    Why not? I don't know why people reject the plausibility of it, when obviously there will be patterns between people who share similar thought processes, after all the mind is intimately connected with the body.

    It's fine, if that's where people want to take the concepts of typology. Seems like there would be too many outliers to make it relevant to the scope of most evolutive theories of Jung, particularly given the fact that even he expressed it would take a considerable level of psychological evaluation to legitimately determine someone's proper type, let alone studying their physical expressions in a five minute Youtube clip.

    A clear INTP 5w6. He's an irritated ti user explaining why other people are silly, not a ni-te user trying to impose a vision on the world. There is fe working in the background; despite his reputation, he's actually very polite and explicitly states he "doesn't, by nature, thrive on confrontation". And despite his rejection of religion, he still clings to social Christian morality. INTJ atheists tend to be more Nietzschean, because Ni, Te, Fi, and Se are all more likely to lead one question traditional objective morality than Ne, Ti, Fe, and Si. Much of it comes down to cultural differences; in Britain, its much less taboo to criticize someone's religion. If you want to see what an INTJ militant atheist would look like, Christopher Hitchens (5w4, or maybe 1w9) provides a perfect contrast. http://www.celebritytypes.com/misc_pictures/int.jpg

    Jung typed Darwin a Te type explicitly because of his extraverted exploration of the physical sciences. Darwin, Dawkins. One wrote the Origin of Species as their seminal work, one wrote The Selfish Gene. It's not that complex to see how Dawkins' dominant function is Te, and I would strongly argue for him being a sensor over an intuitor.

    "No other human type can equal the extraverted sensation-type in realism."

    If an atheistic naturalist isn't as realistic a worldview as it gets...
