    I don't mean to stereotype here, but why was Coatzee typed as an INTP?

    And as much as I want him to be INTP (being an INTP-leaning aspiring novelist more interested in writing about emotions and the human condition than abstract ideas...I know, fail) his biography seems pretty NF. I mean, I was really into environmentalism as a child, so it isn't like no INTP can ever be into "causes" or even feel strongly about them, but I mean...he's a vegan and his idealism dominates his life. I'm not necessarily diagreeing here, he has that INTP cynicism and fascination with the morbid (plus his eyes are quite NT) I just want to know why. Is there evidence of Ti-Ne in his writing?

    I do think Tolkien was, though. The obsession with inventing languages, the degree to which he fleshed out the societies (systems) of Middle-Earth...it pretty much screams INTP. I honestly don't understand why he's so often typed as an NF...

    Dan Brown and Sherri Tepper would both have to be INTP and Anne Rice would have to be xNFP

    Changed my mind. I met more INTP's.

    Absolutely on Sherri Tepper. I'm not much for meeting people but I'd give my eye-teeth to talk with or meet her just once. Well...at least communicate by email.

    She needs to put some more books out...I get tired of waiting, ya know?

    What about Julian May? And Mary Gentle? INTP as well?

    And here I though that an INTP poet would write 0010101100010101010100 101010101001 0101 0101010101 0101010101 010101010100100 1000101 0101000101 01001010100010 0101010 1010101 010, I know, it's not funny, but still.

    I remember reading somewhere that Nietzche was an INTJ. I do love C.S. Lewis' writing. He is quite an inspiration to me.
