NTs just don't get WS and never will. That's why I think God I'm an NF.
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?
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.
