Default Was Leo Tolstoy an INTP?

I'm about to start reading Anna Karenina so I did do a little bit of research on Tolstoy. I can't really tell what he is. But I found a quote by one of his teachers saying he was "unable and unwilling to learn." Yet, he went on to become one of, if not the greatest novelist of the 20th century. As we know, INTP's are very intelligent but HATE traditional ways of schooling and learning. Any thoughts?

Probably an NF idealist of some sort.

Tolstoy is typed as "decisive" rational type in Socionics - the typology that originated in his native country where people could read his books in their native language.
In MBTI this roughly equates to ENFJ, ISTP, ISFP, ENTJ.
He's far more likely to be a feeling type - ENFJ or ISFP - over the other two.

Better than going to a therapist.

I guess some people arent able to think out of the box or from a different perspective. A therapist helps with that. I doubt any of us needs one. Mine is pretty useless. Barely got any benefits. But she's pretty i like to lead her into thinking she's leading me into thinking a certain way. But what if she's leading me into thinking that i am leading her into leading me to think a certain way? D:

I'm just a twat who obviously needs therapy but refuses to go.

But one of the main reasons is that I suspect 90% of them to be completely incompetent.

I would totally sit sessions with some eye candy tho..

Probably end up fucking him. That would be my game plan the whole time at least.

See! Therapy needed! lol.
