    Default Dagny Taggart

    I am rather embarrassed that it has taken a hardcore paleo like me 42 years to get around to reading Atlas Shrugged.

    That said, how would you type Dagny Taggart? I want to call her an INTJ, but I'm not for certain on that.

    Ironically (?) I think a lot of Rand's protagonists are ENTJs.

    Dagny in particular; the woman never rests and isn't much for introspection.

    Hank and Francisco are tough to say; a case could be made for either one of the NTJs for those two.

    Galt is definitely INTJ.

    Well, yes, but on the other hand she doesn't really socialize, either. She doesn't have much use for about 99 percent of the people in the world.

    Hmm... that's a good point. Thinking about it, she also spends most of her work time alone in her office.

    I guess they're all INTJs with exceptionally well-developed extraverted thinking?
