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.


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.


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


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


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.
