    So, here is my bookshelf! Do you notice some patterns that reflect a certain type?

    I invite you to post your own bookshelves for analysis! (The images I used are screen shots taken from Shelfari.)

    Seems like a lot of Fi, Ni and Se, and Ne. Some Fe and Te there too. Once again IxFP.

    I wish I could post mine, but I have so many books, it would be tiring to put one up, and what you would see is different based on which of my bookshelves you looked at. Maybe when I have more energy.

    Edit:OK I did a first pass, I avoided my textbooks for the most part (and they would surpass the number of books I have already). Also, if you notice, I have nearly as many books partially read as I do have books read. I stop reading when something more interesting comes along.

    Okay, so this is really just a sampling, largely based on memory. A lot of my books are in storage or at my parents' house right now.

    Yay! Thanks for your analysis. I lay the decision of my type confirmation upon you. You've met me twice AND you know my book collection. "Help me ygolo-kenobi. You're my only hope".

    P.S. As for your bookshelf...I've seen it! It is overwhelmingly intimidating in how VERY INTP-ish it is! I wonder if that's how you feel when you look at my bookshelf.

    We have many of the same books.

    I've added a link to my first pass shelfari bookshelf in my post. It should be a little "softer" than the one you saw in my living room, since the textbooks (for the most part) are not included.

    Awesome!!! You have an amazing collection. I recognized some of mine in there. I also own "Being Logical" and "Think on These Things"...I've just not gotten around to reading them.

    Thanks for posting your list -- I'll be adding a couple books that you have to my "planning to read" list: "Why I'm not a Christian" and the Tori Amos book (or is that a DVD?).

    Didn't do my shelf before just commented, so here it is. Or at least a good cross-section to represent it.

    This is a really cool idea. I kinda in the process of doing mine from memory.
