    That wasn't what my question was about. :p

    If your interpretation works for you, so much the better.

    The guy was ridiculously INTP.

    Last Question ftw.
    No offense.

    I forget which one Last Question was, but Last Answer is totally INTJ.

    Just read Last Question again, and it seems ridiculously INTJ to me (how does anyone get P out of that?). Some of the characters were INTP, but that doesn't mean Asimov was.

    I was talking about Asimov, blocks of text don't have personality types. Anyway, I've read a biography about him and he's clearly INTP.
    No offense.

    Ah. Well you cited the story as evidence, so I read it. It seems like typical INTJ writing (and story), but you're right. Not enough information.

    Gotta tell you, dissonance, if I were a writer in the early 50s, I would have written the exact same story as The Last Question.

    And like 6sticks, I've read not only at least one full autobiography, but many, many essays by Asimov which were written in closer to his "true voice" than his fiction. "Asimov was INTP" will be carved into my F'n gravestone.
