    I think I've read all of her significant books. The Foutainhead was really good but the other ones were kind of boring.

    As far as her philosophy goes, there are some interesting tidbits but she was a bit of a loon IMO.

    The arguments I've heard usually state his categorical imperative to be some sort of Ti concoction. However, I don't think it's wise to type someone exclusively by their philosophies. Even a quick wiki search would reveal the structure in his behavior and how he conducted himself was very orderly. He wasn't a social creature, but he had a sense of duty and what "ought" to be, to the point of being Jung's extraverted thinking incarnate. He may have been a professor, but he was not absent minded.

    I am not sure whether that is a joke or not, but Nietzsche was hardly 'the ultimate INTJ'. The writer appears clearly so, but the person Nietzsche strikes me more as an INFJ. According to celebritytypes.com, Jung typed him as INxJ.

    Nietzsche is a mixed bag. His health problems hampered is potential to engage with the world; whatever extraversion he had was pretty feeble.

    Who is arguing that Rand is not an INTJ? Ni dom and inferior Fi seem so evident.

    I still can't figure out why everyone gets their panties in a bundle' over Rand though, lol. There are many, many other controversial writers as well. I suppose her altruism attacks leave many unesettled and disturbed. Though anything that one finds deeply unsettling should probably be looked at carefully. It is good to challenge your own beliefs, and Rand certainly does this. She takes the potential, a few key ideas and pushes them to the extreme. Its fucking fiction! She intended it to be that way. It reminds me of the satirical, dystopian fiction that Vonnegut puts out. Welcome to the Monkey Box. Harrison Bergeron. I enjoyed these as well. It was mentioned in another thread, and I'm going to repeat it.. saying that Rand is worthless is more of a reflection on the reader than Rand.

    I think I will go buy a bumper sticker today that reads "Rand is coming for YOU!"

    Agreed. I was originally on another thread about Bruce Lee's type where I commented to someone from celebritytypes.com that Kant's lifestyle was that of a J (INTJ, and not INTP as the site claimed). And on this thread, I commented that his philosophy was INTJ based on a really interesting quote I ran across online yesterday about Kant's philosophy. I shared the same quote on the Bruce Lee thread as further evidence - not the only evidence - of Kant's personality type.

    So what I wrote above was part of a continuing thought-process that started on the other thread.

    Not to derail the thread, but Rand wrote more than fiction. She was life-and-death serious about her philosophical essays written mainly in the 1960s - 1975. And Galt's Speech was part of a fictional work, but the ideas in it were not fictional to Rand. (Maybe they are fiction to Rand-haters...)
