    And the previous statement does fall under the irony umbrella once again.
    Do you have citations that this is irony? I'd like a second opinion.

    I take exception to that. I'm an NF, and I don't really like Shakespeare's work. I don't think it has a very positive message about humanity (in fact is kind of depressing about our fate), and I find it a bit overdone in many places.

    I'm a little offended by your implication that in order to be an NF, you have to like Shakespeare... don't you think that's a little presumptuous?

    Tragedies seem to play very much into the heart of many NFs, especially INFJs. Whether Shakespeare was INFP, I can't say. But I do doubt he was gay, in fact recent evidence is showing that he was probably a devout Catholic:

    I've been a long-time lurker here, and I wasn't planning on ever posting, but I'm finding it difficult to not say anything. Something about this thread just tipped something in me. Here is the crash:

    I HATE the generalization that NFs cannot gravitate toward the tragic. I'm a fiction writer myself and most of my stories tend to focus on "darker" themes and have "unhappy" endings. I find tragedy compelling. I find studies of human frailty compelling. I'm sure plenty of other NFs do, perhaps moreso than NTs.

    Wouldn't forcing everything into iambic pentameter be more of a Te thing anyway?

    That said, I agree with the person who said typing Shakespeare is a pretty futile task. It would be interesting to try to type every play and poem attributed to him and see if there's a pattern.

    I'd even go so far as to say that complete tragedy quite F. Ts are more likely to go for something that is neither extreme.

    I don't know if that's necessarily the case, Hap.

    Thirst for diversity in emotional expression probably isn't an MBTI characteristic; more of a universal ideal people strive for.

    With MBTI, nothing's necessarily the case.

    I think that's pretty well established by now.

    Well, then that sorta flies in the face of your first statement, doesn't it?

    You could tear apart the entire thread with this sort of stuff.

    Are you trying to stop us? We're having fun!
