    Default Being Poetic...?

    I have noticed that many people here are very poetic. I am not. I'm not very poetic in my native language and I'm even less poetic in English.

    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?

    i always thought of it as some combination of Fi and Ne.

    all of the extremely poetic people i know are xNFPs.

    I prove that assumption wrong.
    Maybe INFP's rather?

    well i know at least 1 ENFP that's extremely poetic.

    i wasn't trying to say that all xNFPs are poetic, but rather that there's probably a correlation.

    i think Fi and some N function (for metaphors and shit) are probably pretty necessary, at least for the kind of poetry i have in mind.

    I doubt poetry is limited by function. Besides, what moves one person could make another sick. I'd imagine an S's writing style would be more literal, limericky. An N probably more shitty metaphorical. Their appeal would be to different groups.

    The thing about poetry is to find your own voice really. Which words express what you want to say, best. Look to write for you first, before writing for others. You can't draw everyone, but there'd be someone who responds to you, definitely.

    For once, look at us, the guys who are called artisans
