    It was that stuff about about "holding the most thoughts in your mind at once" that made me think NTP.

    He does seem like an awfully nice, average guy,
    but he's at least in his 40's so one would expect him to be more well-rounded.

    If he was an INTP with a high S factor,
    that would lend to him being a more physical person.
    As he said, he didn't have the benefit of an education.
    He doesn't have a college degree, yet he is kind of large.
    While being a bouncer probably isn't his ultimate desire,
    that's what he's qualified for.

    His method for running the world sounded too much like "playing God" for my comfort.
    I watched all 3 of the videos.

    I agree with the INTP assessment for the same quote INTJMom mentions.

    I had to laugh at the story about his head being too big for a hat or helmet. My INTP husband can't find hats that fit him either. He's not as big a guy as Smartest Man, but this particular fact has been a running joke with us and caused much concern when I was pregnant with my son. LOL.

    I think Jae Rae has a unique vantage point because she's been married to an INTP for over 20 years, I think.

    Would you care to explain the significance of this statement?

    by the way, this guy's view on reality isn't very impressive. i mean, he didn't say anything i haven't thought of and integrated into my own view.

    based on what i've seen, and applying his own criteria, i have little reason to believe he's any smarter than i am. i mean, it's very likely he's much smarter than i am, but he didn't really show it. anyone have links to some deeper stuff he's said?

    Watched the third one. I take my first guess back. INTJ, IMO.
    “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.”

    i disagree, depending on how you want to define intelligence.

    i would make the claim that a highly intelligent person certainly has a well developed Ne or Ni...which can be true for S types.

    i mean, what is intelligence if not ability to think outside the box?

    Although it usually entails thinking outside of the box, it does not necessarily require it.

    so with your definition, you're probably including speed of processing?

    edit: i guess you're probably talking about ability to solve complex problems by predefined means. in that sense, N isn't very useful, i'll agree. but if it's a problem that you have no previous experience with, you're gonna need to use N functions.
