    He was involved in pantheism, so my guess is some sort of perceiving sensible type ...

    Well, pantheism was a common fad at the time among intellectual circles, but most people were highly skeptical about it.

    No exact reason otherwise, just a hunch ...

    I dont think a person's beleifs can indicate what their type is, as there are people of every type who hold the beleifs each of the major, and most of the not so major, world religions. I think the way in which they processs the information pertaining to their beleifs define their type, but how do you measure the way in which one processes information? That is the question.

    My friend and I always made Emerson an INTp and Thoreau an INFj, to correlate with our types. It's not to be taken seriously though.

    I did do a report on Emerson in English once, my friend on Thoreau. But seriously, I don't know what his type is, not that that helps.
