    Default Any other NTs have a Genius-Crush on Richard Feynman?

    Man, I love this guy. I've read most of his books.

    Anyone else just lust after his brain? heh. Seriously, though. Anyone? Feynman? Genius? Yes?

    (His pranks are likely the biggest fave of mine. aah. Love that guy.)

    I'll leave you two alone!

    Feynman. Genius. Yes.

    I want to be like him, not be with him. Still, I can see why a woman might. He was incredibly kind to his wife "Putsy" in his letters.

    A lot of people want to think like Einstein, but I think Feynman had a lot more to teach us (by example and by instruction) about how to think than any other scientist.

    I have a lot of his books. I want to get his series of undergraduate lectures, but they remain somewhat expensive (and my interestes have shifted a bit away from physics).

    Which book is your favorite?

    I think lots of people do think like Einstein. It's just that none of them were a part of the scientific community before he was.

    Just as I've been saying. An IQ is like religion -- it is devoid of much meaning, but you can use it to get others to listen to you.

    I have a comical flowchart that addresses Richard Feynman. What is the best way for me to post a picture to these forums?

    You can attach it to your post by scrolling down whilst in the reply window and choosing "manage attachments," or you can upload it to Photobucket and copy the IMG tag underneath it, then paste it into your post.

    Ivy, I failed to include a picture using the MBTI forum tools. I did manage to upload the picture to the forum, but I cannot seem to make it a part of my message. I created a photobucket account to fix the situation. Enjoy.
