  1. I am not sure but I feel it may be Confucius, I am more interested in reading the psychology behind quotes rather than remembering names of persons ,each quote mentioned here tells a whole story in itself ,lots of psychological aspects .


  2. Ah, I am a MB ENTJ but the T and J are both only by the dint of a single question. In fact the last two categories were determined by the difference of one question. Otherwise it could be me!


  3. Wouldn’t be Gandhi…He is an INFJ. And don’t remember reading these quotes either. But Socrates is a possibility. Is it Socrates? I know that he’s considered as an entp.
    The quotes are quite unfamiliar to me.


      1. Wow, how interesting!

        I would never have guessed either.

        Beckham I think is pensive and could fit the bill, but is he ever saying anything profound? I would have thought he is a man of few words kind of guy.

        As for A.S., i can see where you’re coming from, though I think A.S. was an angry little man who didn’t really stop to smell the roses.

        Time for a Google for you – so that we don’t spoil the fun by giving away the answer πŸ™‚ This chap is from a few centuries before either of your guesses.
