Ramanujan (most gifted mathematician ever)
A movie is made of this person. He's been called the most weird/extreme mathematician by Marc Zuckerberg, and Micha Kaku.
The guy was born poor in India, given one math textbook and with only that he discovered a huge number of new math theorems. He never graduated though was invited to England, and made incredible math discoveries which are still way ahead even for todays standards. The unfortunate part was that he mainly rediscovered math that was already developed in the west, and that he died at a young age. He said he got his formula's from God in his dreams (lolwut!). A new note book was discovered after his death, giving an extra boost to his already cult status.
I called him the most gifted mathematician ever, because i have no other way to describe this extraordinary person.
Some pics are on google.
I think he's either LII or ILI. What do you guys think?
I've done some reading about him. He seemed to have a very mystical and spiritual side, something often attributed more to ILI. He often claimed to get his insights from dreams, said he'd wake up and quickly write down what he saw. Would that be more Ni-ish or Ne-ish? I often do that myself, write little poems in my dreams and then scribble them down on real paper only to see how utterly stupid they are when I'm fully awake.
From VI he seems quite clearly ILI, signs are there that he's rather relaxed and adaptable, as opposed to being far more tense, as LIIs are.
I wouldn't rule out LSI's regarding eccentricity by the way, since they are known to harbour such characteristics. Technocrat (ST) scientists are quite prevalent.
