    Default 2 INTPs: Einstein (5w4) Vs. Darwin (5w6)

    Famous INTPs

    INTP Einstein (5w4) seems very fond of deeply abstract metaphysical constructs that appeal to him aesthetically. The theory of relativity is a prime example. He was very imaginative and aware of his internal states. Einstein also went with feelings and trusted what sprang from his heart.

    INTP Darwin (5w6) liked gathering endless amounts of information and synthesizing it together into a whole. This was done in developing his theory of evolution. Reason and rationality led him in forging his designs. Darwin was much more intellectual and had an unbreakable heart of stone.

    So folks, what do you think? Feel free to offer your opinions and information comparing the 2 individuals to see how 5w4 and 5w6 INTPs differ! Any information on their respective theories of relativity and evolution would also be nice. I know in their interrelationships that time is a critical factor for both models in the dynamics of change, cause and effect transformations.

    Actually, from what Ive read, Darwin was considered to be an NF, with a holistic view on how the world fit together.

    “As man advances in civilization, and small tribes are united into larger communities, the simplest reason would tell each individual that he ought to extend his social instincts and sympathies to all members of the same nation, though personally unknown to him. This point being once reached, there is only an artificial barrier to prevent his sympathies extending to the men of all nations and races.” ― Charles Darwin

    Perhaps at least based on that quote an argument could indeed be made for NF, but the below quotes seem more like something an NT would say:

    “A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, - a mere heart of stone.”

    “Freedom of thought is best promoted by the gradual illumination of men’s minds which follows from the advance of science.”

    Wasn't Darwin an ESTJ?
