    Default Alan Turing

    He helped to break the code for the Enigma machine in WWII, other than that, I don't know much about him other than that from fiction books + films (and wikipedia) . I think he might be an Alpha type - maybe xSFX > ESFj? which would be interesting:

    His haircut sure makes him seem rational. Could he be EII?

    He also was a very good runner.

    a code breaking computer nerd.

    that alone already sounds like an xNTx to me.

    but i've read to little about him to make a sound judgement.

    I thought Alpha SF because he seemed a gentle soul etc., but INFj does seem to fit better - I don't really know much about him though. You would think xNTX wouldn't you, for such a person - that's what I thought was interesting - that didn't seem to fit. He reminds me an athletic ESFj I once knew - he was kind + street smart, if not 'reading lots of books' smart, but INFj seems more likely to me at the mo (that doesn't mean much though ).

    SEE was my immediate impression.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    i thought in no particular order: he reminds me of reyn til runa (not anything about type);could he look a little INTp? Could an ENTj Ni subtype look like that? I see where Subterranean thinks he looks gentle.. that could be explained by an Ixxp temperament.
