    You make some interesting arguments in your last two posts. You appear to have a much greater familiarity with DFW’s life and work than I do. And in arguing that he’s an INFP, you talk about a lot of “markers” that aren’t traditionally MBTI “markers”: his metaphysical/philosophical stance, eye movements, the symbology he uses, etc. But as a result, I can’t really judge the validity of your arguments one way or the other.

    For my part, the only thing I know of DFW is this one essay, and it struck me as an INFJ sort of presentation. But it’s only one tiny piece of his life. It’s possible that DFW could be an INFP and that, for the purposes of this speech, he has turned his Ne up to full blast and is speaking in “polemical mode,” IOW he is trying to make a persuasive argument (“fight for an idea”) as opposed to neutrally describing an Fi “model” or schema of an idea.

    I don’t really have anything new to add, above and beyond what I’ve already said on why I think the presentation is INFJ-ish. I’ll keep an open mind about the arguments you made and consider them further; I’ll post again if I have any further comment.

    I still struggle with this. I can understand it on an 'outside' level, but I cannot personalize it, and if I cannot personalize something then I don't 'understand' it.
