I don't see an INFJ writing something like this; they would rather add a conclusion where Laura is brought out of her trance and into the real world, not continuing to live in a fairytale. Plus, Tennessee Williams was P if I ever knew one -- "Success is blocked by concentrating on it and planning for it..." is not something a J would say.

    Not sure of her type but INFJ is not it. Her novels were rather dry in my opinion and focused on the plot and the actual action of the story. An NF, particularly an INFJ, would focus on the motivations of the characters.

    I was unsure whether INFP or INFJ. Now I say INFP.

    I just saw her typed as this somewhere. I'll remove her from this category for now.

    Interesting list. Funny I find most of the INTP writers a bit boring.

    What is your reasoning on McCarthy? I find him similar to Faulkner.
