    A few guesses:
    Mike Gayle: ESfj
    Diana Wynne Jones: ENtP (Interestingly her protagonists are often IsFJs.)
    Margeret Peterson Haddix: ESTX
    Reasonings?

    If you read "A River Runs Through it" which is a biography of sorts, he has some lengthy narratives that are about his train of thought while he is on the river that are very Ni. He gets lost in his thought. He is very dutiful and responsible in contrast to his brother Paul, who is an ESTP, and he is addressing problems that could be understandably emotional, but he remains very rational through his analysis. One of the central themes of the story is the inability to help a loved one. Here is a quote about his reasoning, but it was integrated into that story as a quote by his father:

    “You are too young to help anybody and I am too old.”…”Help,” he said “is giving part of yourself to somebody who comes to accept it willingly and needs it badly.”
    “So it is, that we can seldom help anybody. Either we don’t know what part to give or maybe we don’t like to give any part of ourselves. Then, more often than not, the part that is needed is not wanted. And even more often, we do not have the part that is needed. It is like the auto-supply shop over town where they always say, ‘Sorry, we are just out of that.’”

    The message that I received from the story is that we can’t understand anyone of our loved ones fully so we are unable to help them in the way that they need. The only method of assistance that can be offered is to love them completely and unconditionally, and hope that the love that is offered is an adequate form of support.

    He also understands the complexity of the individual, and at the end, he makes the statement “you can love completely without complete understanding.”

    I have more evidence, but I don't want to spoil the story.

    But trust me, he is very INTJ.

    He notes the woman's attempt to solve the problem too, and questions their F tendencies in trying to help. His mother is an ISFJ, and he states that her attempts to help "through choke cherry jelly" are superficial. He might sound like an F, but he is a T. There is another character that his wife's family is trying to help as well, and he questions their methods too.

    Blake is most likely INFJ. He's said to have had visions of angels. His later poems are concerned with prophecy as well.

    I have a feeling that Ken Kesey would be an ENFP. ESFP would be a close second.

    See the Romantic Poets thread and earlier on my original Author's Type List thread I think. We discussed why Blake was not an INFJ and was an INFP.

    Sounds accurate.

    I'll take your word for it. Sounds correct, but if you care to explain how you came to this conclusion...

    Diana Wynne Jones…some kind of NP, in any case

    A few more to consider

    Charles Bukowski ISFP or ISTP
    Shirley Jackson (Haunting of Hill House) INFJ
    China Mieville IN??
    Clive Barker INFJ
    Holly Black INFP
