    Superb individual, perfect caricature of an ENTP. WAY ahead of his time and the quintessential "idea man" with a terrible sense of what was probable/practical.

    The conflict between him and Edison was extremely interesting. He got a bit obsessed with wireless energy a bit too early, but we allow geniuses their quirks.

    Edison was an elephant murderer!

    I'd of love to have seen his huge tower in action.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    We are proud of him as one of the most ingenious people born in this country.

    I think he was a REAL INTP. Not like the goofy ones we see online.

    He was a genius who had ideas that were ahead of his time, and was constantly frustrated by the fact that people of that time just didn't like or appreciate his ideas or inventions, regardless of how interesting or significant they really were.

    He's the NT equivalent of the frustrated artist whose work wasn't appreciated until after his death.

    His entire MO is just runaway Ne with Ti not being able to keep up. Definitely not an INTP. And INTP would never say "We don't have enough energy to reach that distance? Well then we need a BIGGER Tesla Coil!"

    An INTP, if he ever got around to to it, would say "We don't have enough energy to reach that distance? Well then we need a BETTER Tesla Coil!"

    He should be his own type, called NETP.

    he was crazy, some people say INTP some say INTJ, others ENTP, I doubt INTJ, his hallucinations seemed Ne fueled. His inventions are totally ENTP too. I watched a youtube video on him that was very very interesting... I couldn't sit there and read the wikipedia profile
