    I think I may have to read this. I had no idea it was about "her" more than the places she visited. Now I'm interested. Especially since I learned she had a breakdown before going. Sounds like good stuff for writing.

    I have to hear what I've said before I know what I think.

    I agree on NF, but I think she's probably an INFJ.

    The book was all right; there were elements I really enjoyed, and then elements that kind of annoyed me.

    Anyway, I think ENFP or ESFJ. ExFx is very clear to me; I don't see anything remotely resembling an introvert in her based on her writing/memoir. If anything, the whole point of her journey was to reach some self awareness for once in her life, and to 'explore' introversion, which she lacked or pushed away or diverted for all of those years prior.

    ^ she is living and breathing Fi, imo, no way she's ESFJ. And HUGE NF.

    I also enjoyed some parts of book, but I did enjoy it, maybe because I can relate a lot.

    hm, i liked some parts of the book. the parts where she was travelling and talking about places.

    but she whined about herself a lot too. which, self-discovery, yay, but it was too much to entertain me sometimes. ENFP needs to be careful about this

    anyway i agree ENFP. she sounds really Ne, and Fi, and no way she's an I. i think she's close N-S though.

    i really dont understand why are people bothered by her whining about herself.. it's personal journal.. never had diary or anything, but i am pretty sure everybody whines in his/her diary about her/himself 95% of the time, this person only decided to publish it because she knows how to write..like the rest of us dont do the same thing in our heads. :/
    i can understand it's boring to some, but to claim she's way too self-centered, well, she is if every person who holds diary is.
    and that's also her first book about herself.. :/

    this is fucking true :yim_rolling_on_the_
    but there's no way i can do it

    i mean, i can, if i fake it. if people want me to fake it, great!
    other way, i always speak from personal experience. that's it.
    i've been annoyed by that in meself, but then i cant change it so fuck it.

    Add my vote to the ENFP. That's the impression I get. I'm a guy and I read through like the first few chapters and I put it down. Couldn't say why really, but I couldn't get myself to finish. Something about her personality pissed me off. Actually, it was probably when I learned that her trip was funded by a 200K advance on the book she planned to write after her trip was over, it just turned me off completely.

    As for why it's popular, I chalk this up to the overwhelming hypnotic force that is Oprah's Book Club.

    This amazon review put it really nicely:

    "My biggest problem with this tome is that this 30-something woman basically is looking for applause for running off for a year, obstensibly supported by a $200K book advance, to "find God." I'm sure millions of women would love to leave their everyday lives and travel the world to do nothing but self analyze. If she had done volunteer work, I may have felt differently. If she went through some real hardship, I could sympathize. But she was in an incompatible marriage, then dumped by the guy she left her husband for. She should perhaps speak to those battling life-threatening diseases, or raising children alone, or taking care of an elderly parent, or worried about where their next meal is coming from.

    And for all of her self-realization and navel-gazing to end her dependence on men, Ms Gilbert has, as pointed out by anotherAmazon reviewer, married her Brazilian and moved to new Jersey. She could have saved Penguin Books a whole lot of money by getting in her car and going through the Lincoln Tunnel. I wonder how long before she ends up back on the bathroom floor. "

    i walked out of this movie.
