    Default Oscar Wilde

    Oscar Wilde - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    What type does he sound like?


    He sounds like some type of EXTX to me. Based on some of his quotes and backround.
    "I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it."

    His quotes sound very entpish to me.

    I feel he's Ne dom for his quick wit, but I don't think he's NT. Once you read his later works, it becomes quite clear he is F, so I would say ENFP.

    What later works are you talking about.


    I do think that he probably mellowed with age.

    Seemed to switch from entp to enfp.

    Well they say prison broke his spirit. I speak of De Profundis and Ballad of Reading Gaol. Those were much more emotionally high-pitched than his previous works. However, I do think he was always an ENFP: Read his short stories (The Happy Prince is a great example) and you'll see the emphasis on emotional content, these were written early on in his literary career.

    I really like Oscar Wilde and I think he is one of my favourite authors. But I find it hard to type him.. I think he is definitely ENxP. The question is: is he F or T? NF idealistic or NT rational? Actually I can fit him in both descriptions...
    It's too simple to say he is a F just because he showed emotions in his letter "de profundis" everyone has emotions and everyone show them sometimes to another person. By myself, as a T, I've written a letter with emotions in it to someone I loved. And Oscar loved Bosie, no matter how much complications or arguments exists in their "relationship".

    ENTP: Ne, Ti, Fe, Si.
    ENFP: Ne, Fi, Te, Si.
    If I think about this I see him as an ENTP with a well developed Fe. I certainly can't see any Te in him, but because it is the third function, maybe it can be very undeveloped. I actually don't know much about this.

    I think he was drawn to both people and ideas. He has a very quick wit and could react very fast with a clever remark. He used his intellect, but was also very charming and friendly, as I like to think. But I think all this can be true for ENFP and ENTP..
    Is it true ENTPs are drawn more to ideas, knowledge and their understanding of the world and ENFPs more to people and interactions between them? If this is true I rather think of Oscar to be ENFP.
    Or maybe he just was somewhere in the middle of the T/F scale.

    As for the enneagram he's definitely type 4, but is he 4w3 or 4w5? If he is ENTP I would rather think 4w5 and if he is ENFP I would think 4w3. Or is this too stereotyped?

    There is no way he is an F type given the way he treated his wife, brutal!
