    Default Bruce Chatwin

    Any thoughts about this famous travel writer's type? Author of The Songlines, and In Patagonia, among others.

    I've just started reading his biography by Nicholas Shakespeare - brilliant.

    I'd hazard a guess he was ENFP. Apparently he was magnetically attractive (to both sexes - one colleague said "that was part of his charm: he made me feel pleased with myself.") He had a huge appetite for life and experience and was a chameleon so everyone had a different idea of him.

    Although his books are "non-fiction" it's well known that they are, at the least, highly embellished travel accounts. Salman Rushdie said "he didn't give a damn whether his stories were true or not; only whether they were good." He had a gift for synthesizing ideas in a way others missed.

    Anyone else a fan, and thoughts on type? MBTI and/or enneagram. (Enneagram, I'd guess either counterphobic 6w7, or 7w6. Or possibly 4w3.)

    No Chatwin aficionados? Really?

    I'm going to go with ENFP unless someone gives a good argument otherwise. Though I also think ENTP is possible.
