    One by one, over the months, the other bulbs burn out, and are gone. The first few of these hit Byron hard. He's still a new arrival, still hasn't accepted his immortality. But on through the burning hours he starts to learn about the transience of others: learns that loving them while they're here becomes easier, and also more intenseto love as if each design-hour will be the last.

    I would've thought John Lennon was an INTP.

    Maybe ENTP?

    Yes, I agree.

    Margery Kempe, author of the first English autobiography (1430's) and one of the earliest female writers - probably INFP

    (From Bluewing)
    Kierkegaard-INFP Yep
    Virgil-INFP No Opinion
    Dante-INFJ
    Schopenhauer-INFJ
    Dostoevksy-INFJ
    Tolstoy-ENFP
    Pushkin-ENFP
    Turgenev-ENFJ
    Simone De Beauvoir-INFJ
    Plato-INFJ What makes you think Plato was an "I" or a "J"?
    Wittgenstein-INFJ
    Shakespeare-INFP Which Shakespeare are you think of? Surely not that illiterate actor who gave his name to the works, but could barely sign his own name? That fellow was certainly an "E"...but Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford, and Marlowe may have been INFPs
    Augustine-INFP
    Aquinas-INFJ

    Why have you assigned all the analytics a "J"? Wittgenstein didn't seem very anal "J" to me, in fact the Tractatus, seems to be a whole slap in the face to all the anal "J"-ness of Russell.

    I think you'll find more famous INFPs in literature and hermitages than anywhere else:
    Camus-INFP
    E. M. Forester--INFP
    The Venerable Bede--INFP
    Issac Newton--INFP
    Ingrid Bergman--INFP
    The reclusive former female singer from ABBA, forget her name. (But pretty much any Swede will be either INTP, INFP, or INFJ...paradise...sigh...)
    none of us, no, not one is perfect, and were we to love none who had imperfections, this world would be a desert for our love

    Most writers seem to be INFP... when reading a book I always feel like I see things the same way as the author.

    Cervantes (Don Quixote) seems like an INFP to me

    Jack Kerouac seems INFP

    George Harrison seems INFP as well...

    Ringo Starr seems like maybe a ENFP, he is definately an extravert, he has said he can not play drums unless he is playing and interacting with other people.

    What do you guys think about Bob Dylan? I think hes probably ISFP or INFP...

    For some reason B.B. King seems INFP to me... I don't know him well, but he has a great optimism to him and he also has strong morals.

    Lewis Grizzard - ENFP
    Thomas Jefferson - ENFP
    Alexander Hamilton - ENFP

    A lot of prolific writers I would think are ENFP's who have learned to stay on task or INFP's

    I can't see Jefferson as an E. From what I learned in US History, he was a quiet writer.
