    Default Stephen King

    It would be nice to know his type. INTP? INxJ perhaps?

    INFJ was my guess.
    He's all about the mindfuck.

    I've thought ISTP as well. He modeled Roland off of how he perceived himself, I presume King isn't so bad ass though.


    ISTP 6w5 sx/sp.

    My vote is for the creepy INTP. And I don't really like his writing either.

    Se is more reflective on actions and objects. Not on an internal self image. I only have a passing familiarity with the Dark Tower series, but if he isn't "doing" anything like that character, then I don't think it says much about him. Even when the Se types turn towards self-image, it's more ground-up, trying different hats on first, and coming to a realization of what works (whether that's in honing a skillset and "finding yourself" in it, or trying on clothes and looking in the mirror, etc.. It's all about experimentation and actions leading to an actualization. Not vice versa).

    Not trying to preach to the choir btw. Just my 2c.

    What about Ni in a developed user, as was mentioned?


    To give this a flavor of physical tangibility, your blog is "The Man With No Blog", derived from the character that King also most identifies with, Blondie, who Roland is actually truly based off of.

    Great post. I don't know where anyone is pulling ISTP from.

    You guys need to branch out a little. Extroverts write books too, you know.

    Dammit, Jennifer! No they don't!

    Only deep and mysterious people who just can't be understood by the average, pedestrian, run of the mill person on the street can write books... don't change the stereotypes!

    Do you have any evidence for anything contrary to what has been presented? I did a fair enough job of associating everything together to tie in his certain ISTP-ness.


    I really dislike that this forum has gotten away from the true nature of typology: polarizing the masses.
