    He actually seems like an ISTP to me, from both his manner of speaking and list of jobs. Not type egotism, I swear! I do think most geniuses would tend towards N, but this guy doesn't give off that vibe. That is, if anyone with an extreme IQ level can even by described by MBTI. I kinda doubt they'd fit even as neatly into the box as any 'normal person' does (ie, not very).

    Indeed. I am almost certain that he is an ST of some sort (ESTP being the least likely).

    I enjoyed his radical veiws on how to change our world and whats needs to be done. Its like a world of individualists who are the genius' and above average running the world of the masses. Two different societys in one, and the society of the masses would of course for theirs and our own good have to be taught how to use their freedom.

    Precisely.

    MBTI seeks to categorize based on tendencies within sample groups and is sustained with observed data frequency.

    ESTPs can be smart too!

    (haven't seen the video yet, but I'm generally annoyed by the perception that ESTPs aren't all that bright- at least not in the way that Ns consider bright )

    ISTP, IMO. If he has that ESTP charm, I didn't see it in those clips.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    MBTI type really doesn't have much predictive power on applied intelligence in this world, in my opinion.

    There is a big difference between being good at creating logic, and being good at picking out correct logic.

    The most incompetent SJ with useful memes has a hell of a lot more potential than a competent NT with their thoughts stuck in left field.

    Anyone who thoughtfully connects MBTI to intelligence is not familiar with either.

    I would say the guy is definitely N, and INTP sounds just about right. I think you guys are being fooled by the quality in his voice, and that he at first eye-sight seems a bit average Joe. He is probably used to talking a lot easier around people than how he actually thinks as well.
