    Default Marko Kunst, Isa's Dream

    Do any of you know the book "Isa's Dream" of Marko Kunst?
    It's about a girl who gets into her own psyche after a failed suicide. The ultimate introspection. The book has a quite INFP message - you've got to know yourself and find your true self before you can live...

    I strongly suspect the main person to be an INFP too.
    Why is it always the INFPs who get thrown in their inner worlds? Wouldn't it be fun to get some character there who is not used to introspecting at all and just wants to get out?
    What about some ENTP wanting to ride the relativistic train he'll surely find in his mind, almost wrecking his own mind with all sorts of mad experimenting?

    It's an awesome book.
    There is a character in it called Sentirus. I'm almost sure Sentirus represents the Si function. His task is sifting through the constantly incoming observations and selecting the ones worth remembering. He berates Isa for not being interested in details any more, resulting in too few observations worth remembering .

    Thanks for the suggestion. That sounds like a really interesting conceptual novel...

    That sounds great tell me when you find it. I really want to get in to a good chaotic novel.

    Hm, I've made a typo in the name. It's Marco Kunst with a c.
    Here's his website: Welkom op de website van Marco Kunst
    I don't know if his books are translated into English. I've read them in Dutch...
