Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, and political activist. He is an Institute Professor and professor emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Chomsky is well known in the academic and scientific community as one of the fathers of modern linguistics, and a major figure of analytic philosophy. Since the 1960s, he has become known more widely as a political dissident and an anarchist, referring to himself as a libertarian socialist. Chomsky is the author of more than 150 books and has received worldwide attention for his views, despite being typically absent from the mainstream media. What personality type has Professor Chomsky?

A1 I think Chomsky might be an INTp. He seems to show more gamma-like qualities during debates I have seen. In my experience gamma-NTs(INTP & ENTJ) have been more likely to find confrontation than alpha-NTs (INTj & ENTP) in the harsh ways gammas are inclined to. In many Chomsky videos he becomes somewhat agitated with who ever does not see his views or does not account for certain evidence he points out. This is not to say alphas don't do well in debates yet, I think they hold their positions in less confrontational way. On another note it seems to me that INTps tend towards socialist sympathy and contempt for capitalist imperialism. Another thing, although this doesn't hold up in any serious form of argumentation; however,anyone who has studies socionics for a long period of time will get an intuitive impression about what type a person is at certain instances. I must say I get "INTp vibes" from Chomsky. but, again that is a personal intuitive experience rather that observations I am able to form an argument around. INTp is my best guess. -- Anonymous
A2 A1. Yes. Professor Chomsky is an INTP "The philosopher" (1.Ti 2.Ne). He is able to see issues from many different sides and come up with explanations to very complex phenomena. -- jgbr

A3 As pointed out in your question (well, celebrity type quiz) about Julian Assange, if you believe his lead functions are Ti then Ne, you're talking about a Socionics INTj. Are you certain he is an INTp? -- Anonymous

A5 A morally impassioned INFj. -- IOV
