    INFPs are some of the best writers. And they are naturally drawn to it more than any other type.

    Perhaps I am one of those, then...

    But what draws them to writing?

    Is writing about expressing one's self?

    Sometimes, and more often than usual when an INFP does it.

    This is making no sense to me, then. Let me look at this.


    Not everyone writes to express themselves. On average, people only do this 'sometimes.'

    But we do have people who often write to express themselves. Often when INFPs write, they do it for this reason.

    And yet, this makes INFPs more naturally drawn to writing than any other type?

    Is it just me, or does this not all logically follow? Is there a piece of information that I'm missing?

    From sniffing around on other boards (INTP Central), they seem of the opinion that he's INFP.


    I'm getting whiffs around the interweb that Victor Hugo may have been an INTJ?

    Reading Jay McInerney now, and I'm getting xNFP vibes strongly. Will get back once I finish the book and maybe watch him being interviewed, which should help me on the I/E front...

    Naw. Tolkien was like that because of a very strict catholic upbringing.

    My sis told me she was an INFP but her blogs make me think she is an ENFP.
