    I stand corrected. It just fit really well with the theme in the other thread and my mind decided to leap to that conclusion haha.

    i must confess, i haven't read atlas shrugged... yet. that being said, rand wasn't about the development on personality types, more of comparing idealisms (with a preferred winner of course). it's philosophy, not psychology.

    I just find the book excessively obtuse for the message it is trying to convey and coupled with lackluster secondary character development. I understand the point of the book but I just think the method of portrayal isn't something I can easily relate to.

    i think the nature of Fe and the fundamental 'beliefs' of Ayn Rand philosophy are at two opposite poles. Fe's could never wholly integrate Ayn Rand's point of view into their belief. at best they could only balance each other out. a good example would be the middleman Kent Lansing in Fountainhead, who serves as a bridge between the people and the individualistic protagonist.

    I especially like his story about trying to draw what he was (myopically) seeing on a glass slide under a microscope and accidentally drawing the reflection of his own eye.

    That was "Ulysses" for me or Beckett's "Happy Days". UGH! Pretentious much?! You can tell when a text is "aware" of itself. Totally ruins it.

    Craaaaaaaaaap. Nearly everything I write is "aware of itself"

    Can I help it if I'm the hyperaware protoganist of a bildungsroman, Pinky?
