    Default Guess the Author's Personality Type Based on a Writing Sample

    "Miscegenation. The word is humpbacked, ugly, portending a monstrous outcome: like antebellum or octoroon, it evokes images of another era, a distant world of horsewhips and flames, dead magnolias and crumbling porticos. And yet it wasn’t until 1967-the year I celebrated my sixth birthday and Jimi Hendrix performed at Monterey, three years after Dr. King received the Nobel Peace Prize, a time when America had already begun to weary of black demands for equality, the problem of discrimination presumably solved-that the Supreme Court of the United States would get around to telling the state of Virginia that its ban on interracial marriages violated the Constitution. In 1960, the year that my parents were married, miscegenation still described a felony in over half the states in the Union. In many parts of the South, my father could have been strung up from a tree for merely looking at my mother the wrong way; in the most sophisticated of northern cities, the hostile stares, the whispers, might have driven a woman in my mother’s predicament into a back-alley abortion-or at the very least to a distant convent that could arrange for adoption. Their very image together would have been considered lurid and perverse, a handy retort to the handful of softheaded liberals who supported a civil rights agenda. Sure-but would you let your daughter marry one?"

    @Mal+
    I went with ENTP because it reminds me a bit of the type of a way of the text progressing that is a bit Umberto Ecoish. I've been on some website that identified him as an ENTP and found it plausible. I haven't put any thought into it, though.
    I'm guessing the type you're searching for is INTP then.

    It's the Pres., "Dreams from my Father." His style is quite striking, with its abundant metaphors and pompous phraseology.

    Maybe it's the pompous phraseology and abundant metaphors that made me think of Eco, who is a brilliant author, but pompously metaphorical.
    ENFP maybe because of the subject matter I thought...and it read a bit like Hunter S. to me...(if you read it in your mind narrated with his voice...) I wasn't actually paying enough attention to WHAT was being said.
