Friedrich Nietzsche
Has he ever been typed in socionics?

Appleteck 30/01/2012 05:29 PM

Don't know, however he appears to be an ENTp.

Possible other types: EIE, LII, ILE

I find it highly unlikely that he was an F type.

He had a very strong logic and little feeling is present in his writings. I don't see how could he be typed as an F type.

i think that he is ENFj, and dont ask why :D

As Carl Sagan said:"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence".

I don't have a good cryptomemory, but I think beta. He was passionate and burned in fire of protest, and a same time, he was victim. Pain, passion and desperate need for high ideal with forceful devotion, is beta for me.

What's the most favorite Nietczhe quote of others?

Jung considered Nietzsche's thinking as that of an introverted thinking type.

Yes but Marie Louise Von Franz who is one of his students considers him as an Introverted Intuition type.

I've always thought that he was an ISTP. I suppose he could be an INTJ, but I don't think he could be anything other than those two types. He was way too independent and stoic to be an E or an F.

I'm pretty sure that most famous philosophers were ISTPs, by the way. Even today, philosophy attracts more ISTPs than any other types. It's funny though, it only attracts the ISTPs who are actively looking for answers, "deeper" ISTPs if you will. Some ISTPs can't stand philosophy because they don't want to over-complicate things...they would rather just stick with there understanding of life and move on.

ENFP is also a natural philosopher; however, we often lack the focus and self-discipline to do all of the reading and writing required to excel in philosophy. A lot of that is because we stay so connected to the outside world. We tend to REALLY get life and people though.

ENTP and INTJ can also be very philosophical. But they can stuggle to remain objective because of their strong self-interest and need to be right, both of which limit their ability/desire to continue to peel the philosophical onion and accept everything they find.

INTj, with all the afferent strengths and problems (including his mental illness).

I've often seen him typed as a LII.
