    Default Isaac Asimov

    I've never even questioned his being INTP, but others have. State your case.

    YouTube - Asimov-Speech

    YouTube - Isaac Asimov on The Golden Age of Science Fiction
    Seemingly Pt. 2 of above: YouTube - Isaac Asimov on Changes in Science Fiction after 1949

    Read this before posting a declaration, if you please.

    Why did you think he was INTP? *confused*

    I had always assumed he was INTJ, and he matches up better with Six on the Enneagram.

    No don't buy into this people, it's just part of Jack's desperate bid to distract and redirect attention by intuitively and spontaneously fiddling with the external environment, to postpone having to admit that he's not an introvert! Don't encourage his denial!

    I agree with Jack. I'd say Asimov was more an INTP. He asked more questions without bringing them to closure; the INTJ would more likely answer those questions.

    I have exactly the same tendency to analyze [the present state, the tendencies of people/society, the advance of technology], and predict the future--TENTATIVELY.

    The future is always tentative.

    There's a tendency for INP authors to not be prolific. This would be my one consideration for INTJ over INTP since the guy finished over 400 books.

    But you're right, he kept raising questions. I tend to think of Rice (RedMars) as more typical of an INTP author.

    As I'm sure you know, if "stuck in an interesting rut," INTPs are quite content almost never to leave. He was more of a science writer/futurist than a trained fiction author--writing was his mechanism for enjoying his favorite subjects.
