    I'm going to revise my guess on Orson Scott Card's type. I watched a video clip of him, and there's no way he's an NP of any sort. I would guess NJ, probably with a preference for Feeling.

    Video clip for reference: YouTube - NYCC ' 08 ORSON SCOTT CARD INTERVIEW


    Now that I've seen a video of him, Dan Simmons is another one I'll revise my guess on. He comes off as much more of an ENTJ than an ISTP. Tertiary Se could explain the physicality of his writing. Or he might be an ESTP, too, the extraverted version of my original guess. I'm still thinking ENTJ, though.

    Dan Simmons and Scott Card did strike me as being wrong, but there were no competing typings for them, so they stayed. I'll change em now. Scott Card an xNFJ then?

    Diana Wynne Jones, an ENTP?!
    Congratulations, you just made my life. She's my idol!
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    Yes, I think so. Obviously it would be nice to change the first letter, but I can't decide because he sends mixed signals. On one hand, he has good use of Ti, which would be more common for an INFJ; on the the other hand, he likes to put himself out there and cause controversy as few introverts do.

    I haven't read him but I lean more INFJ for him due to the Ti thing. Introverts can cause controversy when they want to.

    Actually there are a lot of well informed people on this forum who think he is an INTJ...

    That's true. I've had some controversy of my own, although as an introvert I find it exhausting.

    I can't see him as an INTJ. It would be extremely unusual for an NT sci-fi writer to resist explaining things on a technical, impersonal level. In the books of his I've read, which is the Ender series, he does a lot of system building, but these systems are always used to illustrate ethical principles. There is far less concern with representing any kind of realistic or objective view of reality. And when I look at those systems (particularly the philotic links) and the broader thematic concerns, I see a lot of Fe. He focuses on connections between people and the clash of societies through misunderstanding. There is almost no Fi involved in any of it.

    I would say William Makepeace Thackeray is a clear INTP. All that biting humour and the very intellectual investigation of character - definitely INTP.

    May I suggest a few for debate which are not included on the list (from what I can see anyway):

    Anton Chekhov - xNFP
    James Joyce - INFx
    Phillip K. Dick - xNTx
    Amos Oz - INxP
    Bill Bryson - ENxP

    Thanks with the Thackeray typing, I've been missing him for ages.

    As for the others, Bryson is INFP without a doubt. Dick is on the list, he's INTP. Joyce is baffling everyone lol but thanks for the input. I orginally thought INFx for him, can you tell me why you think this?
