    Up!

    I think the Buk was ESFP: very similar to Hemingway, but with far more emotional emphasis. He was not a T, he did not care about logic. He was not NF either since he was not idealistic at all, very realistic and concrete and not abstract in his writing. If you look at this, his books are above all about sensory things like fucking, rumbling, drinking, etc, finding some abstract pattern being a secondary thing. And like in Hemingway, there's no symbolism at all.

    No he could be ISFP, but I think he did not repress Te, but have puerile, then tertiary, Te. He was a loner extrovert because of his youth as an outcast, not necessarly a I. He was energetic, wery warm and cheerful and fun to be around according to people who met him.

    ESxP 8? I'm reading one of his books at the moment and most of the writing so far seems to be made up of blunt sensory impressions.

    If I remember correctly, he had a very sensitive soul protected by a tough facade. He liked the idea of being a hardass, but was really just trying to prove to both himself and others that he wasn't a sissy.

    I can skim through Ham on Rye again to refresh my memory, but my guess is xSFP 6w5 sx/sp.

    His lifestyle feels like ESTP (alcoholism, promiscuity, anti-social behaviour)...

    Ah, okay. If his alter ego in Factotum is anything to go off of, he seems to focus more on action without much reflection, which makes ESFP more likely.

    Have you watched any interviews with him?



    He's just so... languid, all the time. He moves and speaks like a sloth. Very low key. In manners and presentation, he doesn't come off as Se dom at all, let alone a sx dom one.

    Then again, I haven't read many of his books and my knowledge of him is limited at best.

    I don't know, looking back on Women, dominant Ti just seems to be a good fit. He was likely Se aux. Plus, I used to write poetry and his poetry was closer to my style than any other poet I've read...I wasn't trying to emulate him either...my sister told me my poems reminded me of his writing so that's why I started reading his work.
