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".
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.
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.
@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.
@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
