The Rational is another name for the Intuitive Thinking. This includes four personality types: the ENTJ, ENTP, INTJ, and INTP. About 15% of the population are Rationals. Some of the most famous Rationals were Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Personality[edit]

The Rational is more comfortable thinking in the abstract, doing so in an analytical, objective way. As an iNtuitive, the NT is not particularly given to sports.

Profession[edit]

This temperament is the quintessential professor, living in academia and in his or her own deep thoughts about something or other.

Communication[edit]

The Rational tends to be roundabout in explanations and may not be very aware of how others feel.

Appearance[edit]

This temperament often ignores rules of fashion, having more important things to concern themselves with, preferring function over all else. It is not uncommon for a Perceiving NT to neglect personal hygiene. Many Perceivers will not hesitate to walk around naked. If a Judger, the NT will take more care of his or her appearance. A number of Judgers tend to have an asexual look.

Hobbies[edit]

Studying self-improvement, learning about new things or languages....
