    i would put joan didion and anais nin as infjs.

    kesey and henry miller i'm switching to entp.

    i still think joyce feels more intj to me than infp. a product of introverted intuition more than extraverted intuition.

    arthur miller, from my perception of him, feels more infj than infp. again, i could be wrong, but i can't figure out why he was put into infp.

    i still flip flop on ginsberg, i think he's a dominant intuitive but infp could be right. dylan thomas never really struck me as p.

    i'm thinking donald barthelme is probably more of an infj than an intp. after reading the rest of his short stories and his essays, intp was a wrong guess.

    i'd like to hear if anyone had any other guesses for italo calvino. garcia marquez makes sense as infp, and calvino might, but i might have jumped the gun. i don't think borges is an infp either.

    i am very interested to hear guesses on updike. i liked him on that charlie rose. jesus christ he does look like an enfj.

    lol I know. Put he does seem extraverted, and I sensed primary Fe followed by secondary Ni.

    What's the argument behind Tolstoy being INFJ? I usually see him typed as ENFP, which seems more likely, as I see Ne + Fi, although I'd argue he is an introvert and therefore INFP. Compare him to Dostoevsky (definite INFJ) and see the contrast between NiFe & FiNe in their heroes.

    “They reminded me that it was my fate to pursue only phantoms, creatures whose reality existed to a great extent in my imagination; for there are people - and this had been my case since youth - for whom all the things that have a fixed value, assessable by others, fortune, success, high positions, do not count; what they must have is phantoms." - Proust

    I think you're right. From interviews I've watched, Arthur Miller does feel more INFJ to me. And I've been waiting for someone to question Joyce. After reading Ulysses, he's Ni dom for sure. In Episode 3, one of his main characters references Aristotle to question his own means of perception. I'm still unsure if he's an NF or an NT. And Thomas Mann is another author I've often wondered about. Any thoughts on his type?

    henry miller is very get things going but i see more Ti-Fe than Fi-Te. i see no Te. he likes to get into trouble in the entp way. he reads bergson (who i'm guessing is an entp too). he's so theoretical and closet-metaphysical, but in the entp way. he's an initiator like enp but i just get way more Ti. plus if you watch interviews, he has that entp feel to me.

    kesey led the merry pranksters. he has serious Ti and can turn on the Fe charm when he wants to "non-navigate." his attitude fits more with entp to me. i don't think sometimes a great notion was a book written by an enfp.

    anais has been discussed. she seems an obvious inj, i lean towards infj. very 4. it also, i think, demonstrates the entp-infj relationship with her and henry very well. exactly what she found inspiring in him and vice versa.

    joan didion- i've only read one book. she feels more infj to me than any other type, but admittedly i don't have a focused impression.



    i want to talk about lester bangs and chuck klosterman. both infs, but j or p i am undecided.

    Mann is INFP, or at least people seem to think so.
