    It is interesting how often ISFP and INFJ comes up for Plath. Both share Ni and Se where you take in the sensations of the external world and distill them into an inner symbolic vision.

    Another thing should be said of great artistic expression. It typically contains within it enough layers to hold up under different interpretations of it. It could well be that her poetry can be viewed from multiple angles and maintain a sense of coherency. It is akin to viewing a cube from multiple angles where one person sees a square, another a diamond shape, and still another a hexagonal, each being entirely correct. That quality is inherent in great creative achievements.

    The bolded part never ocurred to me. Really? I don't think I tend to do that.
    I agree with the rest.

    I relate to the same things. And since it's a big part of her personal story, so to say, on the whole I related to the character a lot, which confuses me a bit, because INFJ and INFPs have completely different functions. It's difficult for me to understand how come we have so much in common.

    I can get freaking psychotic about foreshadowing, interwoven themes, etc, in my writing so I'm not sure that's enough to go off of.
    I know her novel was her life--but she also explicitly wove literature/buldingsroman/freud/etc. themes (in the scholarly sense) in there on almost every single page. These are different than the things you are thinking about.

    My guess would beee...

    Sylvia Plath - INFJ.
    50 Cent - ESFJ? IDK much about him, and I think his music sucks personally, but I'm just guessing by what I do know.

    Rap was there before Tupac. And I also think it's was done better before Tupac.

    I don't care what Eminem says!, about Tupac and Jay Z, I don't like either of them very much.


    I've thought 50 Cent is INFJ, or ENFJ. He's a lot easier to type than Eminem....

    LOL

    50 cent loves to rap about his penis. Now that makes for good rap, doesn't it? HAHAHAHAHA

    The height of rap was G-Funk, Tupac, and the mid 90s. Since then, you just see rappers talking about their penis or some superman... wtf???????

    newayz (but yeah Pre-Tupac rap was good too, Im just saying rap died when Tupac died, not saying it wasn't alive before him)

    I'm talking about actual rapping. Not Hip-Hop, or only modern day rap, or rap from twenty or thirty years ago.
