    My gosh! With the exception of Defoe, they are all iNtuitives! This was to be expected, however, and perhaps indicates that Defoe is mistyped? :S

    That said, of course Sensors can be satirists. Perhaps a Sensor satirist is Ian Hislop. In Fact, I'll add Ian to the list now...

    The list, by the way, is based on Wikipedia's list of satirists...

    I'd say that E/I is pretty evenly split, although there seems a slight leaning towards P over J (probably not enough to be meaningful however).

    In a non-scientific scan of the list, NF/NT seems pretty evenly split...
