    Default beat poets

    kerouac, burroughs, ginsberg, cassady, snyder, and whomever else excites you. gregory corso, lawrence ferlinghetti sp.

    kerouac is infp, cassady is probably enfp. snyder feels infj to me. i don't know ginsberg that well but i think he could easily be a j. maybe a dominant intuitive. his eyes feel j to me. i could see enfj. burroughs feels like an intj to me, but i waffle between intj and intp. he seems Ni dom more than Ti dom in the end.

    ginsberg enfp or entp? the latest verdict for me is probably enfp, especially if whitman is an enfp (ginsberg = whitman, the sequel, but less good).

    if i knew who lawrence ferlinghetti is, i might try typing him too.

    gregory corso seems silly when he talks (in the soooo outdated, out-of-touch sense). i never liked him in kerouac books anyway. esp? isp?

    I always thought Neal Cassady was an S... probably ESTP. Good with the ladies, lot of energy, never really did much writing himself but was more of a catalyst for Kerouac.

    Edit: and I agree with INFJ for Gary Snyder

    neal is the biggest inspiration for kerouac's prose. he's definitely a fast-talker. in visions of cody you get a sense of how out-there he was. i'm gonna re-read The Letter later and respond. he could be entp too.

    yep. exactly why i think he's an S.

    kerouac: infp > isfp > infj
    burroughs: intp
    cassady: esfp > estp
    ginsberg: intp

    keorac sounds enfpish to me...kinda

    “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”


    “I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.”


    My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.”



    but i have no idea really...
