    Default Natasha Rostov's Personality Type

    The other day I encountered Natasha Rostov come to life. I was sharing a table with two Russian girls, and I found myself infinitely attracted to one of them who reminded me of Natasha Rostov from Tolstoy's War and Peace. I don't speak much Russian, so I could only catch bits and pieces of what they were saying, but still found myself laughing at this girl and when I'd laugh she'd laugh even harder. There was connection. She was also the purest thing I've seen, not like most of the city girls around here who are all of them the same. I would like opinions on what type Natasha Rostov is. I have my own answer, but I am curious if others arrive at the same conclusion. Discuss.

    Seeing how the book spans over 15 years of her life, I think it would be hard to tack on a specific type to Natasha. I think it is easy to say, however, that Natasha was Tolstoy's embodiment of a perfect woman. Much like seeing a stranger and pouring your dreams into them.

    It seems that the reason to initiate was the fact that, if you did not initiate, nothing would transpire.

    Instances of disappointment following the upholding of principles are interesting. Though I would not be surprised if you had some murky Ni notion about the situation and when to speak and you are rationalizing with the principle.

    Thanks for the input. Still looking for objective perspectives on type. I'll keep waiting.

    This is probably very very true.

    Will you share the harrowing story of your earlier response and subsequent deletion?
