    Haha, that is not correct We also have a romantic streak. Sometimes. I do.
    I'm not an ace in english, but i'm kind of awesome in swedish. Done some attempts at a book, but i'm not really satisfied. And I write poems quite good when there is inspiration. (Love, extreme bitterness, hate etc.)

    And if I drink a bottle of red wine i'm the most poetic drunk guy in the building, fo' shizzle!

    ^^ Alcea, Jesus brought up something you should consider too, the language of your fluency may not be the language of your poetry. Find one that speaks to you.

    Failing which, alcohol works for poetry... or at the very least, it'd be entertaining.

    I think ESTPs could tend to romantic adventure escapades. As with ENTPs. We're different only in the way we choose to escape.

    Me being not poetic has some psychological test proof too. I took some career couseling psychological tests when I was younger. The result was that my skills are not typical compared to similar aged females. I had good results in Ne related stuff (there were a story and I had to make up the gaps in the story), Te related stuff (ordering names really fast to alphabetical order etc.) but not even average results when trying to figure out synonyms to words which meant that I'm probably not very talanted verbally.

    I tried to connect philosophy (and what was that other thing there) to MBTI functions in one thread. Now I'm trying to connect poetic nature of a person to a MBTI function.

    So,
    Do you think being poetic or really good in writing has anything to do with MBTI functions or types?

    Ni? Si?
    Incidentally.. what is your native language?

    Genuine poetry for the most part is Ne Fi.
    A free flow that is.

    Not always.

    just based on a very general view of poetry and the people who write it well, i'd say that the most useful function as defined by mbti would be Fi... preferably as the primary function. so isfps or infps would have a natural advantage in the area.

    of course that's not to say other types w/ strong Fi or other types period can't write poetry well, just that Fi seems to be built w/ such inclinations.

    Yes, I too am poetic
    Dont know how or why, but I guess what we feel has to be expressed beautifully and in depth- which only poetry can provide. Also NFs are all about creating beauty.

    all of the extremely poetic people i know are xNFPs.
    Agreed

    How are we defining "poetic" here?

    I can see why people are saying Fi and Ne would be good, and I can see why they would, but I agree with the people who say it isn't limited to that. I think sensors and thinkers can be poetic too, like Edger Allen Poe... he seems like an NT to me and he wrote a lot of poetry and described it as being his greatest passion.

    Well, of course my dear lass!

    Depending on if you want me to sing one of the numerous ones I know and have sung often in the past and present, or make a new one I could make a new one, easily, but it'd take a few minutes (just gotta love that smiley)

    Oh your choice, but a new one would be sweet.

    I like "The Ghosts of Cape Horn" by Gordon Lightfoot.
