    What we know of him primarily comes from Plato's writings.
    So literal. Pretend I said "ideas." I'll tell you Plato's type too: HACK.

    My original intention with this thread was to try to keep the subjects pretty contemporary, with the cheeky exception of Orwell, as most of the philosophers of old have been typed already.

    Haha, that was what I initially thought and then I saw Orwell and figured all the dead were game.

    So, what have the philosophers of old been typed as?

    I guess you'd have to do a search of the old message boards

    M Scott Peck (Road Less Traveled which introduced the radical idea that life really is difficult; get over it) talked about type in his last few books. His preferences were INTJ and the arguments he makes on euthanasia bear it out.

    Sounds Nietsche-esque. Another INTJ, correct?

    It's time to admit I never took Philosophy. Read basic Plato/Socrates/Descartes in religion classes but on this forum I feel like I've got some remedial reading to do...

    Really? Huh, fascinating. I read this book in my early 20's and remember agreeing with nearly all of it. I guess I would have thought he was an NFJ, but I suppose that's my confusing the subject matter with what is more typically talked about in NF circles; but obviously NT's can make excellent therapists too.
