    Thought so.

    Care to explain?

    Charles Baudelaire oozes ENFPness based on his Wikipedia page. Allegedly an Enneagram 4 type.

    Balzac is Enneagram 7. What type would that normally correspond to?

    I guess everyone can agree on the Ti + Fe.

    Kafka seems to inhabit a world more of his own creation; Not that this isn't a trait among INTPs, but it seems to derive more from Ni-Abstraction over Ti- Abstraction.

    Also, Kafka's feeling seems too well developed to be (even an atypical) INTP. What is most telling to me though, is his obsession with his diet and physical fitness (to the point of becoming anorexic). There was no reason for it - It was just an outright obsession. Inferior Extraverted sensing?


    As for Joyce, I always saw him as INxP - Actually leaning more toward INTP, due to the linguistic theatrics of his work and his humor, but I supose INFP (or J, even) could be possible.

    Here's a quote from Beckett:

    James Joyce was a synthesizer, trying to bring in as much as he could. I am an analyzer, trying to leave out as much as I can.

    Iain Banks: INFP

    YouTube - Iain Banks 'The Write Place' - The Book Show Episode 15

    YouTube - Iain Banks -- The Book Show Episode 15 -- Sky Arts

    Clearly an introvert although very animated about his subject. Clearly a Feeler, clearly a P and clearly an N.


    Julian Barnes: INFj?

    YouTube - Julian Barnes-- The Book Show Episode 4 -- Sky Arts


    F Scott Fitzgerald: ISfP

    ESTP - "The Promoter".

    Winston Churchill and Norman Mailer were quite clearly this type.

    Byron and Donne are the same type. They are both ExTP, but which?

    I'm hearing ISFP for Hemingway. This is the man who shot at his wife whilst she was in the bathtub, fortunately missing her, but the bullet going through the tub because she had his favourite tree removed. Typical ISFP behaviour? Okay, not typical anyone behaviour, but more likely the action of an ESTP than an ISFP.


    On another point, what about Stendhal and Hart Crane's types?

    Here's a point: most of the INTP writers w/could be classified as eccentrics.
