    And the books don't lie, my friends. They are the Holy Bible of MBTI.
    Keirsey isn't actually MBTI per se.
    He's Keirsey, which in this case means "personality archetypes derived from MBTI."

    Uber, do you have the ref where you say Keirsey says Jung was INFJ?
    OWS says Keirsey says he's an INTP.

    Damnit, I lent the book out.

    I could have sworn they claimed he was an INTP in the book, but without the book, I can't clarify it.

    I'll search the web a little.

    Perhaps somebody else could search their Please understand Me II to see what they say?

    Uber is right. But I'm still 99% sure the book said he was an INTP.

    I read part of his biography and am quite convinced he was an INJ. The symbolic came from within him with such a force.

    Oh, INFJ might be right, this would account for the Ti.

    The literature has definitely pinned him as an INTP. Aren't INTPs meant to be the system builders? System building is what he is practically known for right? He might be an INTJ though, I'm yet to look into it in any depth...

    Looking at the video clips, and considering his theories, Jung seems to be very comfortable with using inductive reasoning to draw abstract conclusions.

    INTPs seem rather uncomfortable with inductive leaps. INTPs seem to often get stuck on the details of the deductive process, and when the deductive process stalls (for lack of proof), have a hard time making an inductive leap to push beyond the reach of deduction.

    That would lead me to lean toward INTJ or INFJ, but more likely INTJ. Why do people feel his thinking function is Ti rather than Te?

    Personally I'm more likely to go with INFJ due to stereotypes >.>

    It's harder for me to imagine auxillary Te users adopting non-empirical positions, granted he did keep ranting on about how he was an empirical scientist. Belief that there are links between two totally independant events for example: His theory about synchronicity. But eh it could still be possible that he's just an INTP or INTJ with a spiritual background.
