Fi: Einstein is often thought of as an incredibly logical person, but everything he did was motivated by personal emotion. He wanted most to be true to himself and often went directly against his parents orders even if it meant losing their trust, love or funding. He was a bit of a radical, and all as a result of hating the school system, Einstein revoked his citizenship of Germany at age 15 without telling his parents. As a young man, he married a woman that his parents hated, and was rejected by them for years to come. Einstein was a bit of a flirt in school and tended to be a bit of a quiet ladies man (if you’ve ever seen one, you know what I mean).
Ne: Albert Einstein was all about new ideas and theoreticals. He loved to explore new ideas and question old ones. He was forever learning and constantly embracing new things –be it in his appearance, frequent remarriages or his ideas. Einstein was bored in school because the ideas were all things that had already been explored and he wanted to explore new things. Einstein knew what he wanted, but didn’t always consider the long term consequences of his actions. For instance, when he dropped out of school, he had no plan for what to do next, and when he married the woman against his parent’s wishes, he had no plan for income.
Si: He didn’t particularly care for the routines and rituals of school –or any traditions for that matter. In his youth, he skipped out on classes, asked friends to take notes for him and passed all his classes flying without much studying. Despite his dislike for German traditions, he had a love for culture, religion and music and devoted significant time to pursuing each. Einstein wasn’t one to easily accept the knowledge or social rules of his time, but rather, questioned everything, coming up with new theories and eventually revolutionising our views of quantum physics (among other things).
Te: Albert Einstein didn’t see the need to talk more than was absolutely necessary. In fact, he didn’t speak a single word until he was five years old, when after years of his parent’s believing there was something wrong with him, he asked in perfect German, for the salt to be passed at dinner. Years later, when people asked why he hadn’t spoken prior to the incident, he replied that he hadn’t seen the need to until then. Einstein was incredibly logical, and often infuriated colleges with his oddities, resulting in his having a difficult time holding down a job (that is –until he was world renown).
I’ve typically seen Einstein Typed as an INTP, but I don’t see Einstein using much Si or Fe… Einstein was a very Fi person (based on all the books I’ve read about his life).
