    Default Hannah Arendt; Fe-user

    I am sorry that I don't have time to write a long post, but I've never really gotten Hannah Arendt. Why is she so significant? - Would we even have taken her serious as a philosopher if she had been a male? Or if she had not had the engagement with Heidegger? And most importantly: What is her type?

    I used to think ENTP, she is clearly an extrovert who writes accessibly and never too obstrusely. I though that she was merely an underdeveloped ENTP without anything truly original to say.

    But recently, I have begun to think of her as an ENFJ. I think her attempts to desribe various things, be thay philosophical tidings or political systems make much more sense if you see it as an Fe-dominant personlity trying to tell us all what to think.

    I'm not sure about her type, though I've read a couple of things from her ('What is politics?'), and I really dislike her thinking and writing style.

    Now that I think of it, ENFJ might be the correct assumption. Definitely not an ENTP.

    @ blackwater: I have never heard of this person before, but wow, just from those few sentences you describe her with does she need be in remedial classes or something?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I generally hate Arendt too. Much of her analysis of "totalitarianism" is pretty ahistorical.

    I don't know...I kind of liked Eichmann in Jerusalem. As to her type, I'm pretty convinced that she's some sort of F.
