My ENTP friend is in my advanced writing course, and most of his stories are either parodies or run like a long joke with a great punchline at the end, but (or at least according to him) his actual writing is quite stale and academic.
And the writer of Star Crossed Anime Blog (whom I suspect of being an INTJ) mentioned in one of his posts that his favorite genre is mystery shows which require rewatches and leave the viewer to piece the parts together (Boogiepop Phantom and Ergo Proxy). I think he also loves character studies.
And then my mom, an ENTJ, is frequently critiquing movies for plot-holes as she watches them, but often opts for amazingly cliched movies with weak acting.
As an ENFP, I like existential themes, interesting characters, and not-cliches.
And, as mentioned by goodgrief in the thread MBTI and styles of writing,
This got me curious. I get Te wants a consistent plot and Ne likes irony and fresh ideas. What I want to know is how these functions all play together in specific types to determine their tastes in literature.An E would focus on a larger group of characters who were nearly equally developed and the focus would move around.
An I would focus mostly on one or a few characters who would have stronger development than the subcharacters.
An S would put a lot of detail into the environment and situation and would be more action oriented.
An N would place emphasis on puzzles and riddles, internal thought and abstract forms of storytelling.
An F would emphasize the characters emotions and would be more likely to write about relationships and romance.
A T would emphasize on the plot and include be more likely to write about mystery or science fiction.
A P would have a more open and expansive plotline that leaves many plot points open and unresolved.
A J would have a more restricted and linear plot where all the plot points are resolved and there are few questions remaining at the end.
