I think he was ISTj. Dont ask me how I know, thats just my impression.
My impression of Heidegger has been ISTj too.
My impression is LII
Also he VIs like ISTj, hes got that flat look in the eye like hes focused on the physical in environment that ISTjs have.
About ISTj: Imagine Heidegger sitting in his office thinking. How does he use Se? Philosophy was not a hobby for him, something that you do whith weak functions. I don't see how he could be a sensor.
I think it's better to look at his actual writing style, the text, the sentences, rather than trying to type him from some very general trends in his philosophy.Typhon wrote: His philosophy seems to radically reject all the current of philosophy from Plato onward to embrace the presocratics, this seems like Ni because it ignornes the big picture and trends.
It's hard for me to type him, although I can say that I am unable to read his writings. In german it's slightly better, but still extremely hard to follow. It might be deduced that his thinking style is quite different from mine. Examples of philosophers I find readable (although not necessarily easy to read): Wittgenstein, Russel, Schopenhauer, Kant, Mill, Frege.

In theory there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE
Best description of functions:
I took a class on Heidegger. LSI.
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...

A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows the other. Mao Tse Tung

Mortal, mortal, what would you
With that beauty once was yours?
Perishable is the dew,
And the dust endures.
