Jung was an INTP. He had enormes intrapersonal intelligence, which may be mistaken with INFJ but that's not true. Jung was curious. Intensely curious. He wanted to know everything about everything, and had an open mind. His relationships with patients has been described as analytical more than emotionally rewarding. Writing wise, he's and obvious INTP. If categorizing personalities is not Ti Si, them I don't know what's going on. Come on!

Gifts differing lists him as INTP , so I don't understand why so many people have voted otherwise..

Carl Jung described himself as having difficulty with feeling. This could be interpreted in two ways,: 1: He finds it difficult dealing with his feelings and they are ignored or repressed. 2: He has difficulty dealing with his feelings as they may be strong and overwhelm him at times. This would also explain why he is most commonly typed both INTP and INFJ (and ISTP in his younger years). Anyone care to give their thoughts and opinions on this? I slightly sway towards INFJ because he was charming and in touch with humanity - not typical traits of INTP. Several people including Freud also commented on how people were drawn to him as they felt comfortable and even like a family member or friend in his presence (unlike with Freud). Personable quality much more typical of an INFJ not INTP.

Are you sure about this?
