    So we agree. He is being critical. I wasn't baiting him. Thus there was no reason for that response, except to make him look like an idiot because he was telling me not to do exactly what he is doing. Twice, actually. Assuming that I was assuming and telling me not to assume. As for the rest of the responses, they are mainly centered around the question: How do you know they are NTs? Seems like a legit question to me. If he thought his post would go unquestioned, well he clearly isn't learning much from his class.

    Have you ever thought a book you've read for class was poorly written?

    I wasn't asserting that you were baiting him.

    It is a legit question, but much like the questions and comments of his classmates, it misses the point.

    And his thread title and insistence on that point as well.

    That may be true, but responding in such a manner isn't going to help any. If anything, it will bring more criticism.

    Oh, don't judge a book by its cover.

    If you don't like people stereotyping NT's as critical make a thread about how NF's are too sensitive.

    Right, and that's why he's made the right move by not responding, leaving us here to keep discussing the discussion.

    Yes, a few.

    [Back to the topic: As long as the person can solidly support their position (while remaining attentive to the novel's time period and genre), then they have some validity to their case. However, these opinions sound like they were derived from a 21st century arrogance.]
