Since you liked Infinite Jest, you may like Jennifer Government by Max Barry. If you haven't read it already.I dunno about INTP characters but a book all INTPs (and actually just everyone ever really) need to read is Infinite Jest. Man that book spoke to my soul man. My soul.
He'd figure things out really quickly "I already knew it was a basilisk Hermione, you didn't need to get yourself set stone for that information!" but on the other hand he'd never deal with anything "As far as I can tell this basilisk is the schools problem, the teachers can handle it." and if the teachers handled things (successfully) the wizarding world would have acknowledge Voldemort's efforts to return and possibly cut his plans in the bud...a lot of things could have been avoided if the staff did their job.Are INTP are the main characters boring? Imagine how different Harry Potter would had been if he was an INTP 5W6.
'The brotherhood of the screaming abyss', written by Dennis McKenna in 2012. It gets to a time where he and his brother Terence become blindingly spaced on native substances and concoctions in the Amazon during the early 1970's. The notions they had were far far out - to the point where Dennis barely came back. Terence had to keep a constant eye on him, because he kept running off into the wilderness naked, and demented.
A roving tour of South America would be so right right about now.
I wrote a few short stories with an INTP as the main character. A LOT of it takes please in his head. I wouldn't mind reading what you wrote if you don't mind.I know that Sherlock Holmes is definitely an INTP (the original, not the one from that BBC show). I've heard that Gandalf is an INTP, but I've also heard that he was INTJ and INFJ. I've also heard that Yoda is an INTP, but I haven't watched Star Wars in a while.
Actually, in a story I'm writing, one of the main characters is an INTP. It's not finished yet, but she still counts. Right?
I think we all forgot about Elizabeth Bennett. I'm willing to bet that she's an INTP. But, you're right. Literature needs more INTPs.
Just got this book, so far its been fantastic.I would believe The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle's protagonist is an INTP. But it's hard to tell. The reason I think that is that his emotions are rather disconnected from his experience and how he acts, and such the way the story is told as well. It's a lot of abstract, weird stuff and odd connections between things, and that's how it's narrated and told. One of my favorite books, though, which could be my bias.
