I just don't buy that the body of their work would be based on a unconscious function.
    I know you don't buy it, whatever "unconscious function" is supposed to mean, but it's viable.

    When artists create art, they are often not their day to day selves. They go to a special place. I know because I do it.

    The fact is that most of his work was made to appeal to broad audiences. This is... not what INFPs are famous for.

    Yeah, I don't do linear and logical.

    Oh, and remember, it is not just the NFs that swim in the Fi pool. I've been floatin in here so long my hands are gettin all wrinkly.

    I understand Fi very very well (for a T).

    Ni lets me "get" things; Fi helps me to "know" what to do with these things that I "get."

    (Then Te powers over and takes action.)

    Ahhhhhhhhh, a Shakespeare hater!!!

    Gah, some of his work is far from being awesome, I will give you that, and I do think that this was due to the pace in which he was constantly cranking out work but Hamlet,, Macbeth, Richard III, Othello?!?!?

    These were masterpieces, to say the least, and *all* of these plays resonate with an Fi charge.
