David Foster Wallace.
This is a discussion on Famous INTPs List within the INTP Forum - The Thinkers forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; David Foster Wallace....

Heath Ledger is seen mostly typed as INFP, as Edward norton is typed mostly as INTP. I believe the opposite is true for them, mainly because they are driven to express their inferior (F/T) functions moreso than their dominants... Please tell me I'm not the only one seeing this?
Socionics typed James Hetfield as INTP (INTj) and I can definitely see that.
Unsure if this has been said and I'm not going through 70+ pages. Lupe Fiasco is said to be INTP, and I can see that being true. Here's one of his songs that seems to be of Ti>Ne origin.
Ricky Williams, former NFL running back. I watched the ESPN 30 for 30 doc about him the other night, and I am pretty sure he is an INTP. I never would have thought.
I didn't read the whole thread, but what's up with so many people claiming Darwin as an INTP? Jung himself said that Darwin was "an example of the normal extraverted thinking type."
Examples that Jung gave of Ti-doms were Kant and Nietzsche, the latter of whom is often claimed by INTJs. And I believe that Jung later classified himself as a Ti-dom.
I saw Troilus and Cressida by Shakespeare at the Swan Theatre (Stratford upon Avon) the other day.
The actor who played Ulysses seemed a bit INTP-ish to me. So I tried to find some you tube videos of him and he seems similar in other roles.
He was easily the best actor in the play, but had an INTP-ish way of avoiding eye-contact .. well not exactly avoiding eye-contact, but looking slightly sideways, which is rare for an actor.
Can you guy confirm from these vids whether he comes across as INTP-ish? Thanks :)
Newton in Newtons Dark Secrets (he first appears around 8 mins in)
(I know some of you have argued that the real Newton was an INTJ, but I'm interested in the actor not the real man)
The guy in the hospital bed (a druggie), 29 mins in
The guy who found the murder victim, 4:40 mins
He's also Germaine (the evil guy's herald) in A Knight's Tale

Gustaf Skarsgård. His more famous brother Alexander might be INTP as well, anyone know?
