    I see Oscar Wilde as a playwright mostly, does that count?
    I don't really have any idea how to type authors, but I'd like to see Vonnegut on the list. INTP?? I think also Dostoyevsky is usually typed as INFJ.
    I think Virginia Woolf is introverted, but bipolar. I would guess Palahniuk is a P, but I'm not sure about INT. I might even guess INFP because he is so f-cked up.

    Playwrights are fair game for this list, so I will add him.

    Will add Dostoyevsky too.

    Will add Woolf to INFP

    I'm not sure I see Palahniuk as INFP.

    I'm not familiar with Vonnegut. I'd need back-up from someone else on that. All the listed types come from MBTI sites and threads here, so they are all kinda backed-up. He could well be INTP.

    Ok yea, Vonnegut is just a guess so I really don't know.

    I also don't have much for my reasons for Palahniuk, I think it was just from reading Invisible Monsters that confused me with F/T.
    And this from a biography
    He also began volunteering at a homeless shelter, then as a escort for a hospice where he transported terminally ill patients to their support meetings. He stopped volunteering after a patient with whom he had developed a friendship died.
    which might not mean anything. I would still go for P though, just because he doesn't seem to have much structure/planning. I think he makes it up as he goes along.

    I can't say I've read any of his works, but apparently George Bernard Shaw was ENTJ.

    Thomas Hardy is apparently an SJ.

    What about Joseph Heller for INTP?

    Herman Melville I have heard is INFP but could someone who has actually read him back me up on this?

    What about Truman Capote? ENTP? YouTube - Truman Capote on The Dick Cavett Show ( Pt 1 of 2 )

    Douglas Adams: ENTP?
