    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    There's Paolo Coelho, who is cited quite consistently as ESFP, but apart from that I haven't seen anyone.

  6. Personifying the Psyche

    Cognitive Functions
    I just want to say at the beginning that, while this post specifically applies to novels, it doesn't necessarily need to. I'm aiming to present a theory on how the cognitive functions of a person might be personified, not just for writing but in any place where it might be used. * * * As an...

    Guess the type
    Basically, I'm just curious as to any opinions of the personality types from major characters in Bret Easton Ellis' novels?

    Hey guys. I'm wondering if any of you have self-published a book and how you dealt with paying for the copyright, ISBN numbers, cover art, and etc. Also, do you sell through Amazon in e-book format, or perhaps use a print-on-demand service? After taking all of this time to meticulously construct...
