I've been looking forward to writing this article because Sir Isaac Newton personifies some of the outstanding introvert characteristics that you can learn to prize in yourself, your introverted child or your introverted lover. If you're an employer, you can also learn to identify two of these qualities in job interviews to your advantage. Introverts make terrific employees. These are the qualities: Sir Isaac Newton could concentrate like a Concentratin' Fool. He loved his dog Diamond. And he was a modest man. He had these three things in common with most introverts.

Sir Isaac Newton was born in 1642 in England. He is considered by some to be the most brilliant man that ever lived. Other contenders are Mozart and Goethe. Newton is credited with developing calculus and discovering the Laws of Gravitation and the Laws of Motion (more correctly, the "Three Laws of Motion underlying Classical Mechanics"). You probably learned in school at about the same age as he discovered these laws that an apple fell on his head which got him thinking. As the story goes

, he wondered why the apple fell and the Moon didn't. His 23rd year was a phenomenon, an Annus Mirabilis. Later he also wrote Principia Mathematica in 1868-87 and Optics in 1704.

Young Newton was a real seeker. As a young person he wrote in his notebook, "Amicus Plato; amicus Aristoteles; magis amica veritas" which means "Plato is my friend, Aristotle is my friend, but the truth is my best friend." Latin was the language in which the educated class in Europe communicated with one another.

Newton was recently in the news because of his Bibles. Like most introverts

, Newton read a lot and one of the books he read a lot was the Bible. He had at least thirty of them. I've been running a book survey on my website for introverts. One of the questions I ask is whether people dog ear and write in their books. From the results of my survey, most people wouldn't dream of it but Newton's answer would be "yes".

In a recent interview with Patricia L. Paddey of Bible Network News, Dr. Stephen Snobelen, assistant professor of the history of science and technology at University of King's College in Halifax, said

, "We actually have 30 of [Newton's] personal Bibles at Trinity College, Cambridge that can be examined?. His personal Bible that he used for looking up references is a very small, hand-held Bible. That is a remarkable artefact [sic] to handle physically, because you can actually see the dog-eared pages. You can see the soiling. You can see this physical testimony of a lifetime." Dr. Snobelen is one of only a handful of academics worldwide who now study [Newton's Bibles and other non scientific manuscripts] for insights into his theology. These papers were willed to Cambridge University by the economist John Maynard Keynes in 1946.

Newton was an intense reader. "While it is possible that some dog-earing was the work of subsequent owners," Snobelen continues

, "it is evident from the fact that most instances of it point quite precisely to passages of demonstrable importance to Newton that the vast majority is his own. He used dog-ears not merely to mark pages but to align the page corners with specific passages of interest (hence the fact that pages may have their corners turned down, up, or both)."

According to the London Daily Telegraph, Newton was consumed by apocalyptic research and reluctantly predicted that the world would end in 2060. "Thousands of Newton's papers, which had lain in a trunk in the house of the Earl of Portsmouth for 250 years

, were sold by Sotheby's in the late 1930s. John Maynard Keynes ... bought many of the texts on alchemy and theology. But much of the material went to an eccentric collector, Abraham Yahuda, and was stored in the Hebrew National Library. It was among these documents that the date was found."

Sir Isaac Newton was an INTJ introvert. There are eight different types of introverts, according to Keirsey Personality Theory and Myers-Briggs Temperament Inventory, both based on the Jungian approach to personality interpretation. Newton was an INTJ Introvert

, called the Mastermind. This is a rare one per cent of the population according to estimates by the Keirsey Temperament Theory.

According to Keirsey, "Masterminds approach reality as they would a giant chess board, always seeking strategies that have a high payoff, and always devising contingency plans in case of error or adversity. To the Mastermind, organizational structure and operational procedures are never arbitrary

, never set in concrete, but are quite malleable and can be changed, improved, streamlined. In their drive for efficient action, Masterminds are the most open-minded of all the types. No idea is too far-fetched to be entertained-if it is useful." Other famous INTJ introverts are Niels Bohr and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Not all introverts are brilliant scientists and metaphysicians

, but there are three things most have in common. Focusconcentration, love of pets and modesty are typical of most introverts.

Newton's ability to concentrate was just amazing ? just like your favorite introvert; however, most of us have more social awareness than the British genius. Here are a couple of anecdotes, the first taken from T. Moore's "Memoirs, Journals

, and Correspondence".

"Newton invited a friend to dinner but then forgot the engagement. When the friend arrived, he found the scientist deep in meditation, so he sat down quietly and waited. In due course one dinner was brought up. Newton had forgotten to tell his servant a guest was expected. NewtMa.
