I've always heard that Mark Twain was an ENFP, and I kinda like that lol
But what makes you say ENTP, anyway?

I saw him typed as that somewhere and did a quick mental check from when I'd read Huck Fin, saw the dominant Ne, so I added him... but yes, he does seem more Fi.

Also, Sylvia Plath is full-blown INFP.

I have seen Carl Sagan typed as ENTP before. Why do you think he is INTP? (I agree with you, just wondering)

Jean Rhys was an INFP? I thought I saw a little reflection of myself in Antoinette's narration in Wide Sargasso Sea. I see myself becoming like Jean Rhys... it's a bad thing. I see my adult self writing very fragmented stories with motifs of fire and my future of a downward spiral into madness. I'm not even kidding. Intense inward emotions.

Does this mean ESFP's can concentrate on writing?
What do you think Poe was? He is to American Literature what Van Gogh was to painting, sort of.

I'm not sure, maybe you can prove the opposite.

I've read a couple of his poems and have to agree with the list: INTP. I think Van Gogh was ISFP, he lived near my hometown. :cool:

Van Gogh

Babbling,
Didn't see Poe in the list, thanks.
I recently checked out a book about Van Gogh. He was so incredible! I am studying Art History, and I have a long way to go, but I now know more about Rembrandt and maybe Van Gogh than the average American on the street. I have since learned that the average European knows all about these things just by having them in the neighborhood!

I can walk to the neighborhood which inspired "The Great Gatzby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It is a lovely drive along the lake, and you couldn't imagine the price of one of those houses!

Regards,
Digger:happy:

Yes, every respectable dutch person knows Rembrandt, van Gogh, Mondriaan etc.

I have yet to read that classic tale. But I certainly have to agree with the idea that a rich cultural heritage adds up to, or influences your own 'self': identity, development, experiences and such. Mainly because it's easier to feel a connection.

Good luck with your course. What's your favourite artist if I may ask?

I am 55 years of age, but new to studying art. As for it being a course, it is self study, but I do wish to become a competitive painter. My favorite artist at this point would have to go to Ernie Parkes who painted "The Drum Major" and some other stuff as well. He was in or at least influenced by the Ash Can school of art (imagine that!). He knows how to capture the spirit of a portrait. Look up The Drum Major and you will see just what I mean.

Who are the Dutch artists I should know about? Give me your list and tell me which ones are most important, or at least which ones you enjoy.

Thanks for the yell!
Digger

PS I need to finish my rendition of Frans Hals "Portrait of a Haarlem Civic Guard", then I will post it on my blog!:happy:

Stephanie Meyers

Considering that Stephenie Meyer was listed as an ESFP, I'd say it means ESFPs should never be allowed pen, paper, or any word processors.
Daydreaming:

So you read some of her work? Please expound on the experience! Sounds like it was your worst nightmare!

I just checked. They must mean Stephenie, not Stephanie Meyer. Twilight Series. Seems to have a following, anyway. Doesn't look like my kind of reading, however. I just might check one out, however just to see how Spiderweb Thinking goes down in ink?!

Intersting that you type Lord Byron an ESTP,His many torrid relations (particularly with women),poetic sensibility and sympathies for the cause of Greek independence based upon personal Ideal strike me as Se Fi rather than Se Ti....

The ESTP appears to bear of an "Edge" rather than a flair for the romantic..An Example is Ernest Hemmingway. ESTPs seem to live for outward challange and conquer of sensory experience rather than the "beauty" and aesthetic appeal of it..which appears of greater prominence with ESFP's

Ex.ESTP- Giuseppe Garibaldi
ESFP- Oscar Wilde

I relate to these INFJ writers much more than the ENFP ones. Actually, I'm shocked at how few ENFP authors are listed here, since I love writing, and many other ENFPs here share the passion. I never previously realized quite how underrepresented we were as far a generally notable authors are concerned.
