    Default philosopher types

    I'll start:
    diogenes - SLE
    plato - IEI
    nietzsche - ILI or LIE
    alan watts - SEE?
    kierkegaard - delta?

    I think most philosophers are ILI's (and mb some EIE's).

    It is like my go to place when I'm too stressed out for being too constricted - to construct world ending philosophies (yes, that stuff is too easy for me to grasp it and get tangled).
    Need to get hell outta there.

    If they look for purposeful application to life it favors dynamic Ni valuing orientation with non vulnerable Te that is subservient to something else this effectively leaves ILI and EIE on the table.

    Anyway:
    Nietzsche constructed Übermensch which resembles LSI. EIE.

    Philosophy major here (and CS as well): philosophy to me is a combination of Ti and Ni: simply layers of abstraction. Western (analytical) philosophy is therefore Ti with Ni and Continental philosophy more Ni with Fi (or maybe NiFe)... I am therefore very good at analytical philosophy and not so great at the Continental variety...

    Philosophy engages the splattering of growth and phases of launching the rocket to count up the progress manifesto towards liberation and enlightenment, to throw down the earthly shackles of clouded perception, and reach out into the infinite, where power beyond measure becomes available.

    Well, the top of the clock could be the strategy for smashing the gale and tricking the devil's army into falling under our direct command, for a virtuous cause!

    I'd say EII, yes.

    Imo ancien stoic philosophy is very delta ST and I'd type Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius and Seneca all as LSE-Te.

    I'll add:

    Sartre: SEE-Fi
    Life is soup. I'm a fork.

    IEE-Ne DCNH-C/N

    ELVF(sexta ena) - The "poet" - Andersen
    counter-phobic 6w5 2w1 9w1 - the "Good Samaritan" tritype

    I take it you haven't read Being and Nothingness, a book that, far from showing the signs of having been written by a Ti-PoLR, exemplifies great logical precision.

    Hmmm I didn't, but after a cursory glance at it, I don't see that much T, rather a lot of Ni. I'll go with LIE-Ni instead, so still Gamma extravert with boosted Ni-Fi. Do you recommend the read? His style seems laborious, scholarly, cryptic and rather unstructured to me, which I'd expect would confuse rather than enlighten me.

    Being and Nothingness is one of my favorite books, but it certainly isn't for everyone. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who hasn't studied at least a few other, easier-to-understand philosophical texts, for example.
