    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.

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.

    George Lucas would be the same mbti as Nietzsche, but in socionics, Nietzsche is enfj. This aurora of wishes and plain sight devoured model ascribed Pikachu mud jiggles and wields a sharpie that makes all of reality and imagination painted differently, improved by philosophy. If we rise from the densities of a fallen state, and grab hold of the highest possibilities, then existence is shattered and holographic in molding, like Mew/Bunny.

    I don't get how Plato, who made a very rigid and can only be broken by an SLx like Diogenes of Sinope, being an IEI.
    Kierkegaard is EII, Nietszche IEI isn't that bad, but LIE actually makes sense although I think EIE instead.

    Very controversial since all of them might just be Te or Ti-ego.

    what makes you think that? the most philosophical function, the function that reflects on the meaning of life, is pretty much Ni. a lot of philosophers reflect a lot on ethical principles,an ideal that other people should strive for in their behaviour. I think that Ni and Fi as strongest function, which are the most important 4-dimensional functions of IEI, makes sense for most of them, especially since they have Ti as activating function, and the hidden agenda "to understand"

    Alot of philosophers seem to have been beta.

    Philosophy is a very Ni-Ti thing.

    Well, by that logic, every philosopher is IEI since I really don't think so.

    Ti: wittgenstein is the definition of Ti. other Ti types I think are hume, kant, chomsky
    Ne: deleuze is a perfect example of Ne, which is why I think he feels very distinct from other famous philosophers. kirkegard and (maybe) marx might also be Ne
    Ni: almost any other philosopher I can think of was probably Ni
