sartre INTJ (ni dom )symbolic oriented who put his political views in his books (te aux) action oriented , his philosy is all about our precedent action (fi tertiary)deeply value authenticity heiddeger: infp (fi dom) all his work is about our own subjectivity and our authenticity (ne aux) he make a lot of work about language (si tert) values his country and can be detail oriented@moolfreet excellent argument, my vote goes to INTPINTJ in Ni-Fi loop, just like Heidegger is INFJ in Ni-Ti loop.bobnickmad : I don't know much about Kant but I just read a short part about him in a book (which has nothing to do with him or MBTI), and it's like reading about Sartre, you just have to switch the names ^^ To sum up : Autonomy of judgement = rationality/reason = liberty/freedom of choice = responsability = "you have to rationaly choose for yourself what is good and what is bad and act accordingly", all of this opposed to : "There are no obligated laws/external principles to follow" and passion/feeling is bad, etc.. it's only one paragraph but it's all there ! To me it is Ti dominant > inferior Fe to the bone and I thought I would tell you because, even though it only repeats what I wrote before, I know you firmly believe Kant is an INTP so I thought this parallel might convince you ^^ They're the same kind of guys, and just by looking up at Kant's works/essays/books he fits perfectly in the INTP theoretician category in which I put Sartre.

MBTI type of Jean-Paul Sartre

. And I thought about something : you wrote before that you type Sartre as INTJ in part because you see him as having a philosophy of action, which sounds Te : to me Sartre values action the same way Kant seems to do : it has to follow the individual/independent and rational judgement of the person (Ti); action stems from moral and rational authenticity and consistency, kind of in the same way as this principle of Kant : "Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law without contradiction." I don't know if that's convincing ^^His philosophy is indeed boring ! And his writings overcomplicated, I mean you just have to read the title of his books to know it will be a laborious and useless reading.

.. I don't see the same thing you see in that quote, or at least I can't see why it's more INTJ than INTP.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Jean-Paul Sartre. If anything I think it's more representative of de Beauvoir, it sounds very XNFJ (foreseeing and believing in human potential) I don't understand why you think him having a moral reasonning can only come from Fi, it's clearly purely logic based. What I see in those interviews is that you can't understand a thing he says, you would have to know all his books.Which of the 16 personality types is Jean-Paul Sartre?.. He keeps using hypotheticals, and even him is always repeating what he says and re-explaining it, there's no clear and concise Te, nothing concrete and no pragmatism. An NTJ tells you what you should do and how because it's the right thing to do, Sartre theorizes why you are free to do whatever you want to do.. It's always theory, theory, overcomplicated theory only NTPs will like. An INTJ would give insights based on nothing, Sartre explains each step of the reasonning.. And I'm trying to see what nuance you seem to see that I don't but I think you'll have to explain it to me.. He says there is no God, and even if there was it doesn't change anything, you're free : so no guidance, no moral code/standard outside the individual (introverted judgement). What am I missing ? A J would say the opposite ; there IS a right thing to do, even if there's no God, something objective outside the individual (extroverted judgement)Hm, looks like it stops every time right after I write this function :p I'll try not to, see if it works.Hm, I can't seem to be able to write my mind anymore :/Exactly, and Sartre's authenticity sounds more of the Ti one than some tertiary Fi..Ji-types (P-types) seeks authenticity, while Je-types (J-types) seeks rightnessboth Ji functions seeks authenticity : logical for Ti and ethical for Fi (the "properly" authenticity in casual language)There are so much TPs are seen as FPs or NJs because they do art.. It's sooo easy to "see" Fi in art, you can't think it's a real argument (even if tertiary function was a thing). I don't understand what you mean by "wouldn't deal with the existentialist part of it", it's the theory ! It's the humanism part that's dispensable.. And now I know only INTJs are destined for great things.. He's not relying on social systems, well he has inferior Fe ! And he doesn't rely on cause-effect explenations of behaviour either ? Well it's the whole point of his theory ! That you're not determined ! And I don't see why personnal responsability and authenticity can't be Ti.. They come from dominant Ti judging the superficial personnal interdependance of Fe. To use your own words : Ti is also independant judgement. But if you prefer to see tertiary Fi behind all he says and writes.. Why not type him as INFP, it would make more sense.."He sets to prove a conviction, not a theory" What makes you think that ? To me it's all theory first in him, we are all "condemned to be free", whatever our choices are, we can't escape from this "truth".. And anyone who denies this theory is either a coward or bastards who hides behind "deterministic excuses". He fights others purely on a theoretical point of view. He doesn't set to prove a conviction but a theory, he lets everyone to choose their own conviction and act on it."A man is no more than a series of undertakings [and] the sum of the organization that constitutes these undertakings." this quote sounds very Ti-ish, thus Sartre is maybe an equibrated NTP 5w4 globally, sartre's philosophy sounds very Ji-ish imoHis convictions come from his theory, which is based on logical consistency>all. Existence precedes essence is a Ne concept : Sartre faces the anguish of being left alone with no guidance (NP) and has to give it meaning through actions (whatever they may be, staying home is political to him, a choice/action) those actions have to come from your independant judgement (Ti) you have to pierce a way through with your own reasons. And for him it's pure logic. His whole intellectual career is based on theory, from Being and Nothingness to Critique of Dialectical Reason.. He's the INTP cliché who overcomplexifies everything. I would think comparing him to the creator of the opposite theory (Spinoza and his determinism) is more useful than Kierkegaard (whom I don't know^^). Spinoza seems like an obvious INFP can seem put action above authenticity, but actually he puts action (Te) to serve authenticity (Fi), thus INFP keeps likely for sartre. If sartre seems more oriented towards action than Kierkegaard is, it's because of his enneatype 5, more acting and reality-focused than the 4 oneIn "Existencialism is a Humanism" what he's basically saying is that we face an infinity of possibilities and no guidance (Ne) from which we must choose a path through our own individual (introverted) judgement : in his case it looks like Ti given than he opposes it to every form of interpersonnal influence/dependance.. "Hell is other people", etc.. The whole book shows us how to make the moral decision through pure logic, by purely theoretizing and comparing his theory to all the other ones, making his the "most logic".. A Ni dom wouldn't be that "scientific", would give more intuitive insights and make leaps (Ni) towards what's moral whithout having to theorize it first, would be categorical in his judging (Te) and more pragmatical, oriented towards concrete application and pragmatism. Sartre is more of a theorician, a context/particular situation thinker (Ti>Ne), guided by pure logical consistency (he bitched about how this book wasn't representative of the whole theory because he had to vulgarize it, he even regretted its publication..) Also the whole "absurd/excentric" way of seeing things in this philosophy screams of Ne."Hell is other people" probably isn't coming from someone relying to heavily on Fe and probably not an extrovert. Domineering and dogged, thus making INFP unlikely. INTPs, though sometomes incredibly regimented and determined (Kant, Ben Stein), are rarely domineering. INTJ with an extra dash of eccentricity from all the fun amphetamines he was using :)
