    Surprisingly, my INTP brother hardly ever finds his mind wandering down the path of philosophical adventures. I, however, I'm plagued by it as the majority of the conscious thought it put to philosophical questioning.

    I would say mainly introverted intuitives. Extraverted intuitives tend to be less reflective and obsessed with the theoretical.
    However, when it comes to ENFPs, they might be more reflective and obsessed with the theoretical due to the -likely?- chance of them being the -most introverted- extrovert, if thats what this is being based on.

    INTPs are made for philosophy. We are driven by Introverted Thinking (Ti). This is a highly useful function which uses logic purely to root out inconsistencies and contradictions, along with the structuring of an internal logical model throughout our whole lives. With our Extraverted Intuition (Ne), we can invent and imagine remarkably innovative possibilities, which means we can generate ideas from left-field which allow us to construct wonderful theories about the world.

    Other than that, other types that might be philosophical include INTJs or ENTPs, as far as I know, although all INs tend to enjoy philosophical musing on some level.

    INTPs are made for philosophy! I majored in philosophy, and most the majors of that year were clear INTPs. Second place, INTJs. A smattering of ENTPs and ISTJs, all male. In fact, we had only two girls, myself and an ESFP. She brought the most interesting stuff to the table, simply because her stuff was different, and related in a different style. The profs adored her.

    I love philosophy, and love isn't restricted to type. I do, however, find that type can inform what kinds of philosophy a student pursues. I avoid epistemology and metaphysics, since their distance from lived realities and human plights in general grates on me. I like the philosophy of religion and luuuuurvvveeeee ethics . Also, I love logic, but can't explain that at all. And I enjoy utilitarianism, but that's just dessert.

    Concurring opinions on INTPs as philosophy-bots. I majored in political science, but took either philosophy or literature classes any time I had to fill some hours. I frequently do independent research on the topic. I'm in my final class of my undergraduate career right now: Ethics.

    Also worth noting that me and my ENTP friend (who IS a philosophy major) generally wind up spending a few hours talking philosophy every time we meet. His ideas usually seem more optimistic than mine.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    lol so true

    to be honest i'm so much of a believer in occam's razor and subjectivity that a lot of philosophy (and religion) seems way overly complicated to me. i like kantian ethics though, and spirituality.

    now that i think about it that sounds very Ne / Fi

    anyway i like theoretical physics better

    ps the tao te ching is pretty sweet

    I've always been fascinated with Philosophy. In fact when I took a class in college I was one of the few who actually cared. The only person I've ever met in real life who I could discuss philosophy with is my ENTP brother. Other than that I've never met anyone else who saw a point in discussing such things. Bummer for me.

    e5s, e9s, and sometimes e7. i know a lot of e4s into sociological theory, but it's more grounded in finding self-definition, personal truth, etc.
