    Given yenom's definition, there is actually just one right choice.

    my personal definitions of a Brainiac:
    highly intelligent person
    genius level intellect with much higher IQ than even the high average
    pure thinker
    problem solver
    want to learn everything about the universe and accumulate all forms of information
    most likely socially inept or introverted
    gifted in at least several of the pure science and engineering fields, including physics chemsitry and biology
    have some major similarities with the superman villain brainiac, either in terms of motivations or intellect
    algorithimic thinking
    ...What's the point of the poll?
    If part of you're definition of 'brainiac' is someone who is automatically assumed NT, socially inept or introverted and acts like some supervillain in superman when is it that one may trust the accuracy of assumptions your mind applies?

    Gave it more thought

    ENTJ are definitely the most Brainic, yenom.

    Yeah ESFP, for sure. Definately ESFP, without a doubt. If you don't understand why, it's because you can't fathom it yet. It'll make sense eventually, give it time. I'll wait.

    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    MBTI type is not a measure of intelligence, and I have noticed that an alarming number of self-typed NTs on typology forums presume they are smarter than other people, even when they are only of average intelligence, sorely lacking in education, and/or blathering about complete nonsense.

    I will agree with Marmalade. Logical, or even coherent thought does not necessarily subscribe intelligence. We could say it's a likelihood, but that's a case by case theory.

    Fair enough. I see what you're saying. It would be like thinking that NF's are more emotionally adept just because they are NF or SJ's thinking they are the most practical and have the most common sense just because they are SJ.

    Disclaimer: I have an IQ of 33 and I often "blather" about complete nonsense.

    Yeah some NFs are total wackos and there are SJs who make no fucking sense at all. By the same token, not all NTs are brilliant.

    Are you getting defensive about this? I wonder why...
