i know, i know. she has done so much good but she is soooo full of herself, i can't get beyond that (how she always keep pulling attention back to her, never really letting anyone shine unless it is in relation to her).
As much good as she's done I really have to agree. I can't stand when she takes over the discussion from a professional...ALRIGHT ALREADY...let them talk! It makes me only watch the show from time to time. It's really annoying.
for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.
I can see Blake as either an INFP or an INFJ. Clearly he was intuitive, and I'd say most likely he was F and I. The J/P is up in the air for me but I would say he is more Ni than Fi so if I were forced to choose, I'd probably pick INFJ.

meritorious + historic type examples suck big time. people are rarely more deluded, but when they start to compare themselves to historic figures.
that's because these figures exist only from the outside, as described by other people. nobody has even read their stuff, if they have written anything. and people who quote Nietzsche, to appear idiosyncratic, are frequently the last ones, who actually think on their own (which is not a type related treat, btw) or even understand Nietzsche.
but here is a historical NF quote: "Nietzsche was stupid and abnormal" (Leo Tolstoy)
I think a lot of people see certain famous figures in history as NFs only because of their good deads and ideal vows- like Jesus. I see his actions are more of that of an INTJ rather than INFJ. He stuck to business the whole time and didn't let anything take him away from what he was trying to do.
I can see Buddha as an NF, though..but I don't know. Someone mentioned INTP, and it sounds understandable, too.
Ghandi might have been INTJ, but INFJ seems pretty right.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
i am still looking for proof that the experience of full enlightenment (no matter how interpreted) is even possible for S and F types.
by full enlightenment, i don't mean full "insight" into the nature or emptiness or the present moment or something. that may come by accident. enlightenment is about owning it, or having the impression that one owns it, or is one with it, which is backwards compatible.
