    Bumping this.

    I'm really interested in what kind of literature other ENFJs have really connected with.

    for all Ns, i would always recommend reading the fountainhead by ayn rand. i consider it somewhat of a base philosophy that you can compare with any other good literature.

    keep in mind that i am Ne dominant though, so you will most likely perceive it differently than i. and again, since i'm not Fe dominant, i don't know what else i could recommend for your specific type.

    I've read a lot of Vonnegut. Like, a lot, a lot. I'd recommend him. Daniel Clowes is also good, to throw someone else out there, off the top of my head.

    If you go to The Personality Page, there is a really good section on "personal growth" for each type (click on top of page). The whole page is well-written and very helpful.

    try "tuesdays with morrie"

    "fountainhead" recommended by sentura is too extreme, it'd wreck all benevolent and courteous ENFJs, which I wouldn't want to see.

    I'm about halfway through Atlas Shrugged and I absolutely despise her handling of tertiary character development. She uses the same inept, unthinking character template for every single character other than the key figures so far.

    Tuesdays with Morrie looks really interesting, I will definitely have to pick that up . Thanks.
