    Default ESTJ What Do You Like To Read?

    My boyfriend is a huge Terry Goodkind fan, but I don't know what else he could be interested in.

    I'm curious because it will give me ideas on what to give him, plus you can discuss away.

    My ESTJ doesn't read. She falls right asleep.

    She does read cosmo and can read the hell out of cooking instructions though.

    My dad is ISTJ and he likes thrillers, a big James Patterson fan and he did like the whole Shannara series of books by Terry Brooks.

    My ESTJ boyfriend really likes Haruki Murakami and other Japanese authors, Milan Kundera, fantasy stuff... He always says it's very important to him that he can relate to the protagonists. He doesn't really understand deep meanings right away but sometimes they get to him after a while

    Edit: ^^^ Yeah, cookbooks! He loves them.

    Gazed at earth, finally keen,
    As the rabbit at the stoat,
    Till the earth was sky,
    Sky that was green,
    And brown clouds passed
    Like chestnut leaves along the ground.

    All ESTJs I've ever met are food enthusiasts. My former ESTJ (to me, not the type!) loved political stuff and classics (particularly Hardy).

    I think I read more magazines (e.g. Entertainment Weekly, fashion zines, The Atlantic, The Economist, Newsweek, Craft) than books. But when I do read books, I like fantasy, historical fiction, etc - especially when it's funny and/or exciting. I'm also really into travelogues (like "Iron and Silk" by Mark Salzman, which is one of my favorite books), history books (I'm going on a long trip next week, and my iPod is now loaded with the audiobook version of "1776" by David McCullough) and autobiographies (Madeline Albright's is on my to-read list).

    I also (and this is really basic, but nonetheless) prefer books where there's a quick-ish moving plot, and the action is external. (Which is why I, and maybe other ESTJs also, REALLY dislike the works of Ernest Hemingway!!!)

    I don't think that my personality affects my book choice much, tbh. I read literary fiction. Don't read much non-fiction at all. Dislike "fluff" and chick-lit. I don't need cheap thrills. I need to think and be challenged intellectually. I want to know how people think and how people live.

    I love Murakami, Attwood, William Boyd, Rohinton Mistry, Proulx.

    LOL. My ESTJ girlfriend is a food enthusiast and insanely into political philosophy. She likes to read all sorts of books on Philosophy, History, Politics, time travel & physics, etc. She's also a big fan of JRR Tolkien & JK Rowling.

    I've known two ESTJ males. Both wanted to be chefs and were into cookbooks. One also liked Halo books. The other liked Great Gatsby.
    I don't know if their depth exceeded that though :x
