    Reading Rilke's 'Letters to a Young Poet' tonight prompted me to open a thread to ask everybody who their favorite person (ever) is, but then I found this thread, which is also great and should suffice.

    I think my favorite person, or rather type of person, is Swetlana Geier, although I only know her from a documentary ('Die Frau mit den 5 Elefanten'). What I like about her is that she is astute, quiet yet determined, invitingly gentle yet withdrawn, thoughtful but also simple, that she takes time before she speaks, that, when she speaks, it is with precision and the voice of a young woman even at the age of 85, and that it took her 20 years to translate six books from Russian to German. I believe she is an INFP, like Rilke, which is what made me think of her today while recognizing many of her qualities in his letters.

    A trailer to the documentary that I recommend to anybody interested in literary translation, Russian, German, INFPs, but particularly to @Vasilisa:

    My husband, who is an ENFP.
    He was on the road when hurricane Katrina hit. He and his band headed right there to play to the survivors and the volunteers.
    He saw a beggar walk in NY in the winter without shoes in the snow and he just took his own shoes off and gave them to the man, walking home with nothing but socks on.
    He's just a really genuinely good warm hearted person. If he sees something that he feels is unjust he just takes action. He's got real character and heart.

    Other than my husband the person I admire the most is Tori Amos, who I think is a great artist, role model and founded the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (http://www.rainn.org/) to help victims of sexual violence. She's outspoken about issues she finds important to address ranging from politics to equality issues to religion. She's been open about difficult personal experiences from her rape, to miscarriage to being told she was too old by her label and I find that to be really commendable. It helps people deal with their own issues.
    She's usually labelled as INFP, some say ENFP, but I personally think she's a bona fide INFJ all the way.

    Nice. But I checked Netflix for the movie, and they are listing it as "Availability: Unknown." Anyway, I put it in my queue. I would be curious to hear about what she thinks of Dostoyevsky's work in general. Though of course I would also be interested in her ideas on literary translation; that little snippet of the editor or coworker or whatever arguing with her over a grammar point was funny.

    Not that it matters, but she seems INFJ. I've always thought Rilke was INFP/ISFP.

    Anyway, I would also be interested in seeing this. I'll have to scrape around for it later.

    I knew someone would say that. I am fine with INFJ, too. Typology is squishy business.

    Jesse Livermore, who I think is a 6w5 cp ISTP.

    He was probably the most aggressive trader who ever lived. His trading advice were, and still are, pure gold. He really knew how to think for himself.

    He was very good at making money money in bear markets. When everyone was crying, he was the one selling handkerchiefs.

    Sadly, he had too many self destructive behaviors. But that's part of what makes his personality so interesting. He once mentioned that the worst enemy of the speculator is not greed or fear, but boredom. He seemed to always want action, and I think that's the big reason why he went broke 4 times, if I remember correctly.

    Born in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, Jesse Livermore started his trading career at the age of fourteen. He ran away from home with his mother's blessing to escape a life of farming his father intended for him. He then began his career by posting stock quotes at the Paine Webber brokerage in Boston.
    By the age of fifteen, he had earned profits of over $1,000 (which equates to about $23,000 today[5]). In the next several years, he continued betting at the bucket shops. He was eventually banned from most bucket shops for winning too much money from them. He then moved to New York City and devoted his energies towards trading in legitimate markets. This change would lead him to devise a new set of rules to trade the market.
    During his lifetime, Livermore gained and lost several multi-million dollar fortunes. Most notably, he was worth $3 million and $100 million after the 1907 and 1929 market crashes, respectively. He subsequently lost both fortunes.

    I'm an ENFP, and Im fairly sure it is impossible for us to just list one person and be done with it. Its in a rule book somewhere.. I know it is.
