    Smile Famous Canadian NFs

    Hey, I realized there are a lot of Canadians on this forum. I was wondering if you could think of any famous Canadian NFs (artists or else) ? I can't think of that many just now, but here's my list:

    Lucy Maud Montgomery
    Leonard Cohen
    Loreena McKennitt
    Mary Jane Lamond
    Sarah Harmer
    Bruce Cockburn (?)
    Chantal Kreviazuk (?)

    Non-Canadians are welcome to add, if they know any.

    Sarah McLachlan?

    And I think the jury is in on Emily Haines and Leslie Feist being NFs of some sort. They're Canadian, I think.

    L M Montgomery is of course THE great Canadian children's writer, and if Emily of New Moon really is autobiographical it seems quite likely that she was INFJ.

    However, there's another Canadian children's writer called Kit Pearson who seems like a strong candidate. Her books include A Handful of Time, Awake and Dreaming and the Guests of War trilogy, among others. Her main characters (mostly girls) tend to be sensitive, imaginative and somewhat lonely and isolated. I realised when re-reading The Daring Game (her first novel) recently that it seems to be a portrait of a somewhat troubled friendship between an INFJ (or ISFJ?) girl and an ESTP girl (set in a boarding school in Vancouver in the 60's.)

    I'd hazard a guess that Kit Pearson is INFJ or INFP. In any case, she is a wonderful writer, one of my favourites in any genre, not just children's.

    Ah there could be a reason you hadn't mentioned her . I don't dislike her, I like some CDs, think JLP is very good. In another discussion we got at ENFJ...

    Eh, a good portion of famous Canadians that non-Canadians would know are a little embarassing to claim...
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I have heard of her. Never read anything, though. I didn't know she was Canadian.

    Alanis Morissette? Which type? I would have seen her more as SP.

    What about David Suzuki? NT or NF?
