    Robert Solow - 1. LIE, 2. LSE

    Amartya Sen - Maybe an intuitive ethical (1. EII, 2. IEI), but I could also see ILE

    Slavoj Zizek, famous European philosopher. ENTj as well.

    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 was thinking a possible ESFj if not ENTp, since he does have a strong preference for analysis and logical models.

    ESFj is an available option, yeah. I'd also say that his fondness of Hegelism is not realistic and/or compatible with ENTj as a typing, imho. Although I must admit that I can easily understand him. I can also see ENFj as a possibility. I am reading and I enjoy his writing, even if sometimes it sounds whack

    Impossible. He doesn't have an ounce of Ne polr; ever read his books?

    In any case, I'm not familar with all the people you have tried to type in your blog; I'll give my opinion on some of them.

    Mundell: a very clear ENTj, especially after having seen and heard him talking live

    Prescott: ISFj

    Heckman: ISTj or ESTp

    Akerlof: ENTp!!!!!(I <3 Akerlof btw)

    Stigliz: ENFp (vomit @ him)

    Myron Scholes/Robert Merton: ENTj/INTp mirror pair

    Lucas: INTj

    Markowitz/Sharpe: ENFj/ISTj

    Haavelmo: ESTj

    Modigliani: ESFj

    Leontief: ENTj/ESTp

    Tobin: INTx

    Hicks/Arrow: ISTj/ENFj seems fair, but could also be ISFj/ENTj

    Nope.

    Ne POLR seems to be here:
    Taleb calls himself a "skeptical empiricist", and believes that scientists, economists, historians, policymakers, businessmen, and financiers overestimate the value of rational explanations of past data, and underestimate the prevalence of unexplainable randomness in that data.

    Taleb believes that most people ignore "black swans" because we are more comfortable seeing the world as something structured, ordinary, and comprehensible. Taleb calls this blindness the Platonic fallacy,

    Clearly he is unable to piece together the pieces of the puzzle (Ne) and see the univers as a whole.

    Compare his ideas to this:

    Socionics function: black intuition - intuition - intuition of potentialities
    potentiality of object - inherent possibilities, purpose, abilities, talents, structure, construction, diagram or internal map of object

    By the way, I was a follower of Popper myself, until I read Lewis Carol's article that I posted in this forum. (Achilles and the turtle).

    You could be right about Mundell. I keep mixing ENTJs with ESFPs.

    Do you suggest that ISTJs and ISFJs have no ideas?

    By the way, have another look at my post above, it seems from the timing (my last edit at 9:04, your post at 9:03, that you might have writen this post before i completed mine).

    http://www.dailyspeculations.com/vic/1_vic_index.html

    I think that he is INFJ, or more likely ENTP, or INTP, most likely ENTP though

    While I agree with the following, I don't see how that removes predictability:

    Narrative fallacy. Creating a story post-hoc so that an event will seem to have a cause.
    Ludic fallacy. Believing that the structured randomness found in games resembles the unstructured randomness found in life. Taleb faults random walk models and other inspirations of modern probability theory for this inadequacy.
    Statistical regress fallacy. Believing that the probability of future events is predictable by examining occurrences of past events
