    Joyce is INFJ. Ni dom, certainly. Enneagram 5w4 makes more sense than 5w6.

    ENFP 5w6? I don't think I've ever seen one of those. I would think ENFP 5s are more rare than INFP 5s.

    Some additions:

    Thomas Wolfe - ENFJ?

    What type is Celine? INTx?

    I'm curious to know.
    yeah, zadie smith definitely isn't an INFP. my bet's on some kind of INXJ, actually

    Thomas Hardy is apparently an SJ.
    George Bernard Shaw is an ENTP not and ENTJ. From reading his works you can tell that he immensely enjoys intellectual debates. Here are a few quotes by him. "A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing." "Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything." "My way of joking is to tell the truth. It's the funniest joke in the world." "The secret to success is to offend the greatest number of people." "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." "He knows nothing; and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career."

    The last two times in memory that someone's writing style reminded me of a type, nonfiction and a bit random maybe:

    Barry Lopez - Naturalist-y author - Arctic Dreams - INFJ
    Neel Burton - Oxford Psychiatrist - Hide and Seek - ISTP
    4w3 6w5 1w2 sx/sp ISFP

    RLOAX (don't do it)

    A couple I can name off the top of my head:
    J.K Rowling INFJ
    H.P Lovecraft INFP
    Veronica Roth ISFJ
    Douglass Adams ENTP
    IxxP-Conscientious-Slytherin-Leisurely-Idiosyncratic-9w1-4w3-7w6-sp/so-LII-Ne


    Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
    -J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Socionics types of some authors, since I think more in terms of socionics than MBTI, personally. Most of them I've read, not necessarily extensively but enough to get an idea of their type.

    Shakespeare : Fe-IEI
    Lovecraft : Ne-LII
    A.C. Clarke : LIE
    Nietzsche : Ni-ILI
    Aleister Crowley : SLE
    Ayn Rand : Se-LSI
    Carlos Castaneda : LIE
    C.A. Smith : Ni-EIE
    Anton Lavey : Ni-EIE
    Mary Shelley : IEI
    Bram Stoker : LII
    Plato : EII
    Baudelaire : Ni-IEI
    Descartes : LII
    Ron Paul : Ni-ILI

    i don't know much about hp lovecraft except i read a whisper in the darkness but on a kindof superficial basis i would say he is an intj, just bc he was asexual and prob. an aspie. i think he was too contemptuous to be an nf (not in relation to his autistic traits, just bc he was kindof misanthropic anyway)
    i agree with u on all the others, not that it matters
