Hello, I'd like to start this off by saying that I am still very new to mbti :P
Anyways.. I have a question here.. what is the behavioral differences (according to mbti) in philosophers and scientists?
I'm sure that both are N's. The philosopher juggles around many abstract ideas, while the scientist deals with the more tangible, more rule-based reality through the explanation and testing of phenomena by means of scientific ideology.
Both clearly utilize many ideas in their daily life.. but there also lies the enormous fundamental difference between their practices.. So how are they difference according to mbti?
Personally, I see both the philosopher and the scientist in myself.. and i am INFP.. perhaps the answer to my question is that there is no difference in terms of mbti.. but surely there is a cause for these two ways of thinking? I mean we see great philosophers also being great scientists.. and great scientists also being great philosophers.. but we more often see only a great philosopher with little accomplishment in the sciences.. or the great scientist with little care for the philosophy.
