Beta-something? His ideas kind of reek of that to me, and his influences seem to mostly be widely-accepted Betas (Nietzsche, Hegel, Heidegger, Kierkegaard).
Maybe Ni-ENFj. NF would make sense, and what I've read of his lifestyle sounds more EJ-like.
Confidence : 101%
I would say most likely ISFj

He is commonly typed as SLI. But I can't give my own evaluation because I know to less about him and didn't read something from him
I once read something how philosophy relates to types, and existentialism was related to ESFp and ISFj. A schoolmate of mine who I would type ESFp was also totally in love with Sartres ideas.
Love is like an energy, rushing in, rushing inside of me...
I think ILI . I wonder which type Simone de Beauvoir was , cause she also seems kinda Ni (one is not born a woman, one becomes a woman etc.) ...and by the Gospel of Socionics identicals or comparatives don't work.
"Using socionics to find one's identity is running from your freedom and responsibility to be an unique human being" - J.P.Sartre, ((Anachronic Ramblings of Internet Analogies, volume 4 part IVb))
It's like using psychology to explain why statistics are stupid, or neurology to explain art.
Ofc the philosophers themself can be typed, but their ideas probably inspire/affect/depress regardless of type.
I also have problems with the Nietzsche is Beta, Hegel is beta, Heidegger is an Beta etc. Nietzsche is commonly misunderstood, even by those that read him profesionally there is a lot of debate, nuances, but my general problem is that these guys are talking on a level that is so far beyond "beta-ness or gamma-ness" that I usually just chuckle when people attempt this.
Even if their persona's were beta (something i'm not sure of, brooding and depressed = IEI seems a sucky assumption, all types have rights to be depressed and brooding .) their philosophy still kinda revibrates through all quadra's. Hell, i'm sure I could write a very good essay on the philosophical assumptions and traditions of Socionics, if only I understood the damned subject (based on my lack of understanding i'm quite sure it's heidegger influenced ^^ Sein und Zeit is one of the few books that I've not been able to tackle or even remotely understand, even with help from others... fucker just writes incomprehansible, i'm sure he's actually russian and used the babble-fish translator to get it to german..).
after reading this, I kind of think IEI rather than ILI .
Sartre’s Love Letter to Simone de Beauvoir
My dear little girl
For a long time I’ve been wanting to write to you in the evening after one of those outings with friends that I will soon be describing in “A Defeat,” the kind when the world is ours. I wanted to bring you my conqueror’s joy and lay it at your feet, as they did in the Age of the Sun King. And then, tired out by all the shouting, I always simply went to bed. Today I’m doing it to feel the pleasure you don’t yet know, of turning abruptly from friendship to love, from strength to tenderness. Tonight I love you in a way that you have not known in me: I am neither worn down by travels nor wrapped up in the desire for your presence. I am mastering my love for you and turning it inwards as a constituent element of myself. This happens much more often than I admit to you, but seldom when I’m writing to you. Try to understand me: I love you while paying attention to external things. At Toulouse I simply loved you. Tonight I love you ona spring evening. I love you with the window open. You are mine, and things are mine, and my love alters the things around me and the things around me alter my love.
My dear little girl, as I’ve told you, what you’re lacking is friendship. But now is the time for more practical advice. Couldn’t you find a woman friend? How can Toulouse fail to contain one intelligent young woman worthy of you*? But you wouldn’t have to love her. Alas, you’re always ready to give your love, it’s the easiest thing to get from you. I’m not talking about your love for me, which is well beyond that, but you are lavish with little secondary loves, like that night in Thiviers when you loved that peasant walking downhill in the dark, whistling away, who turned out to be me. Get to know the feeling, free of tenderness, that comes from being two. It’s hard, because all friendship, even between two red-blooded men, has its moments of love. I have only to console my grieving friend to love him; it’s a feeling easily weakened and distorted. But you’re capable of it, and youmust experience it. And so, despite your fleeting misanthropy, have you imagined what a lovely adventure it would be to search Toulouse for a woman who would be worthy of you and whom you wouldn’t be in love with? Don’t bother with the physical side or the social situation. And search honestly. And if you find nothing, turn Henri Pons, whom you scarcely love anymore, into a friend.
I love you with all my heart and soul.
Aristocatic and I think Si>Se-valuing.
I would lean Ni-IEI > Ni-ILI. dialectic-algorithmic is possible but his writing kind of reeks of Ti and he doesn't really VI as rational. I only read like 100 pages of Being and Nothingness, though.
Mortal, mortal, what would you
With that beauty once was yours?
Perishable is the dew,
And the dust endures.
