    In contrast, I do not usually start with the thesis statement. In fact, the introduction is usually the last thing I write. I usually know the main point I'm arguing, but it's not usually formulated into words until after I write out the main body of the text. I jump around from idea to idea, and flesh them out, then I draw them altogether, reorganize, insert transitions, write a new point that combining the ideas has inspired, etc.

    My brother and I took a class together and we had to write two papers, so we hung out and wrote our papers at the same time (we picked different topics of course; don't want to be seen as academically dishonest). What's funny is my brother was completely incredulous at how I wrote papers, and that I managed to pull A's out of my manic writing process. We're both A students, and write A papers...it's just fascinating to see how our completely different processes bring us to the same end result.
    Huh... Well, both my sister (for a while we thought she could be ISTJ but she's ESTJ) and I often find ourselves writing papers together. My sister and I both have to kind of just "go for it". Outlines never work. She has a way of writing that makes sense. She just writes everything out. It takes her a while, though. Her writing style is actually kind of buttery. XD

    Whereas I'm really short and to the point. The part that takes the longest for me is the information gathering, deciding my topic, etc. All that jazz. Then I just write my intro, the hardest part, and go for it. And it's funny. I always finish before my sister, even if she has been writing for hours. XD I can get away with procrastinating and then writing at the last minute. And then we both get the same grade. She jokes around, saying she is Dickens, I am Hemingway.

    Even when it comes to fiction, she's got this sarcastic, hilarious, yet bubbly/buttery kind of writing style. Meanwhile I've got the short sentences. It's all about rhythm for me. It needs to have a good rhythm, good flow, and I always seem to have to have a "message".

    My sister is ISTJ as well. I didn't write papers with her, but I usually edited her papers, but it was mostly accounting and business writing, so you can't get much functional information out of that. Watching paint dry is more interesting than business writing. There is no way you can make it interesting. Anyway, my sister always wrote her paper two weeks ahead (what a good J! haha), while I'm the same as you...procrastinating till the last minute. I'm ashamed to say that I don't remember what my sister's writing style is like.I don't quite know how to describe my writing style...it's analytical, logical, with a big focus on clarity...I really love making pointed arguments that really pack a punch, that makes an impact, and I take great delight in tearing other people's arguments that I don't agree with apart. But professors have also commented on how my word choice and phrasing is almost lyrical (I give credit for that to my INFJ mom, for dragging me to all her poetry readings), and while I love that knock-out argument, a few professors have also commented that I tend to make nuanced arguments...picking apart the fine distinctions of an issue and seeing all sides and angles. I see these qualities as all Ti-Se-Ni all interacting in such way, where I can't tell where one begins and where one ends. I'm not really sure how my Fe factors into my writing though...curse you, inferior Fe! >.>

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I can say for sure that MBTI type does affect the writing style.

    I have an ENTJ friend who types out like an unstoppable machine who literally takes no breaks, this being from her Extroverted Thinking function. Her writing focuses a lot on 'action' and 'doing', from her inferior Introverted Feeling function. She struggles to portray inner thoughts.

    As an INTP, I tend to take long pauses in between to articulate the sentence before typing it out. My writing style tends to reflect a lot about meticulous details and thoughts, as is expected from an Extroverted Feeling and Introverted Sensing function. My pieces tend to be 3x longer than hers as well.

    I'm really quite jealous of the ENTJ and INTJ's speed of communicating, although my writing is more expressive and detailed.

    A noticed a trend among INTPs, they love walls of text. It is almost as if they are deliberately doing that to annoy others.

    inb4 some angry INTP responds with a wall of text.
    Five days late, but I find this interesting.
    The categorical imperative is an attempt to find a universal maxim in ethics that all things can be derived from. The thing that makes it Ti and not Fi is that Kant focuses on purely logical, that is, inherently objective, universals and not subjective ones. The reason it isn't attributed to Fe is that Fe, while it tries to be universal, it is not applicable to everyone.

    Which in my opinion, makes Kant's theory obsolete, but I haven't written a philosophical masterpiece, so... lol.

    ISTP - The Mechanics

    @Julia Bell Hey, I totally forgot about the site with all 16 Personality Writing styles! Here is the one for ENFP. At the bottom, there's individual links for all the 16 types. I read the ones for ISTJ, ISTP, and INFP (me and my siblings :D ) and they all seem pretty close to the mark, give or take a few minor differences.

    ENFP

    @madhatter - Yep. x3 That pretty much fits my style of writing. ^_^ Or how I go about writing. That kind of explains why I always gravitate towards flash fiction. O.o

    Edit: Ah, I can actually relate to the ESFP and some of the INFP description. @[email protected] Oh, why must I always be doubtful? x3

    See the common demoninators there? XD There will be some similarities. I often relate to descriptions of ISTP, ESTP, INTP, and ISFP. You seem ENFP to me; I wouldn't worry about it. :)

    Haha, oh good. ^_^ Just one thing can set me off doubting like that. XD It's always nice to have somebody say I appear ENFP.

    It's just your 6-ness getting the better of you! Don't listen to it!

    Oooh, that made me think: I wonder how Enneagram types would interact with functions to affect writing style?
