    Fi certainly isn't much of a number cruncher in my experience.

    This does sound a bit like Ni.
    That basically is Ni.

    Yes it does, although I personally would not use the analogy of a calculating machine.

    Maybe a math formula.
    Or a lens to look through?

    I prefer GK Chesterton's analogy to that of a vast uncatalogued library.

    Could be inferior Fi- I always thought Hitler was an ENTJ or INTJ.
    I don't think there is any way he could be an NF.. no way..
    An NF would most likely not abuse power like he did- he might have hoodwinked the Germans into thinking that he was an "F type" but I don't think so..

    Well I believe somebody here classifed Lenin as ENFJ. If true, we have that precedent.

    Much of what I know about Hitler's personal life seems compatible with possibly being NF.

    Really? Why not? It only takes some narcissism, a self-serving ideal, and the passion/persistence to see it realised.

    He was very much obsessed with the notion of the power of ideas to influence the course of history. Me meditates upon this for some time in Mein Kampf.

    I don't find it entirely implausible for Hitler to be an F. His reasoning for things was rather F. I mean, in his eyes, it was all one big epic war of that which is pure over that which is filthy. Good and bad, light and dark.

    In terms of skills, Hitler was a brilliant manipulator of peoples' spirits, but he didn't know shit about commanding an army. He really bares a lot of responsibilities for Nazi millitary defeat, and he probably should have let his wiser generals make the decisions. In fact, it was often his inability to accept certain realistic, but depressing possibilities, that made him give crazy military orders. Again, this seems like someone with a lot more F than T.
    I also think he was an Enneagram One.

    The funny thing is, calling him an F(who have been mischaracterized as gentle) and a One(who are presumed to be "good guys") does not mix with the popular characterization of Hitler. Society isn't ready for a Feeling, type One villain, so it will deny their existence.
    Go to sleep, iguana.
