    Default The Romantic Poets

    John Keats: INFP
    William Blake: INFJ
    William Wordsworth: ISFJ
    Lord Byron: ENTP
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge: INtP
    Percy Shelley: ISFP

    Hard to type, esp. because they the whole Romanticism movement seems very N orientated.
    Felt like some of these people have been typed before somewhere, but couldn't find any threads so thought I'd start one anew. I know that the majority of artistic endeavours are the product of SFs, however I feel that the Romantic movement was an INFPish approach to art...

    I'm loath to type as INFP, as I feel that I may project this on to them as I want them to be INFPs!

    I thought Blake was likely NFP because of his focus on good and evil and dualism.

    My guess for Byron was ENTP

    Shelley ISFP

    Keats an achetypal INFP

    I asked for other opinions on Blake's type here before and recieved no answers.

    I think Novalis was INFP as well.

    Got to trust that Fi/Ne connection and let Te stew in the corner sometimes.

    I must have missed the Blake thread, heart. I love Blake. I would guess INFJ for a number of reasons, foremost being that he seems to be VERY ni-dominant. That, and INFJ and mystic are so inextricably linked in my mind. Also, his systemic approach seem Jish. But INFP would not be far behind INFJ, and I probably wouldn't entertain any other types for him.

    I would definitely agree with ISFP for Shelley, ENTP for Byron, and INFP for Keats. No doubt. I'd likely go with INTP for Coleridge with a heavy "maybe" and acknowledgment that INFP is just about as likely. Wordsworth, I'm not sure about- maybe ISFJ.

    Mary Shelley, while not a Romantic poet, seems fairly INFP to me.

    Mary Wollestonecraft, INTJ maybe? Possibly even an E.

    How does one tell whether a poet is an Introvert or an Extravert simply from reading his or her writings?

    I am not relying only on their poetry, but also journal-style (travel and diary) writings and more objective biographical info.

    You don't, you read about their lives and how they interacted with other people, their journals, etc. Anyway it's all just guesses and good fun.
