    Ahhh, well, maybe NFs have more of a knack to create and interpret poetry than NTs, in general.

    Regarding literature, Ns in general will see the recurring themes, understand the complexity of the characters, read between the lines, and most importantly, recognize the words within the lines that are heavily pregnant with meaning.

    The Italians tell us, "Traduttore, traditore", to interpret is to betray.

    And if that weren't enough the French chime in with, "Traduire, c'est trahir", to translate is to betray.

    For those who seek to betray poetry do it in the name of interpretation and translation.

    And to betray a poem is to betray a child.

    Tradduttore, traditore.

    Or that he's a normal human disguised as pearls. 15% of his posts do have gems in them, though.

    To betray is not to intend to betray.

    I may betray my unconscious in a Freudian slip.

    Am I responsible for what comes out?

    I think not.
