The Boy in the Stripped Pajammas, John Boyne
Ne: Bruno loves to explore. He loves reading adventure books and prefers fiction to any other type of reading. He’s distracted in his tutoring lessons, and doesn’t pay attention much to anything that seems boring to him. Bruno, though naive and young, can usually tell when there’s something that his parents don’t want him to know about or do Continue reading
Extraverted Intuition (Ne): Molly can typically read behind the lines where other people are oblivious. She picks up on subtleties in people’s behaviour that most people miss and comes to conclusions about their inner states of being. Molly relies primarily on intuition to figure things out even though she doesn’t always put two and two together logically. Continue reading
Extraverted Intuition (Ne): After being dosed with Retcon, Gwen is still able to recall her encounters with Torchwood because she’s able to piece together bits of information and thereby connect the dots in her memory. Gwen is able to connect seemingly random pieces of information to figure out how to solve the problems Torchwood faces. Gwen has an intuitive Continue reading
Meredith asked: “I have a friend who’s was a total ENFP but then he went through a traumatic experience and now he doesn’t seem like an ENFP at all. Could he have changed to an introverted type?”
Probably not, although, yes, if the trauma you’re referring to was physical head trauma, a stroke or anything that could cause brain damage and literal personality changes. However, I’m going to assume that you’re talking about something that was psychologically traumatizing.
First of all, everyone (hopefully) undergoes Continue reading

Dominant Extraverted Intuition (Ne): Jo has a big imagination and loves to pretend and tell stories. She uses unconventional methods to help support her family, not only by selling stories, but by creating enjoyable activities to entertain her siblings. These activities are out of the box and creative, the types of games that homeschoolers play. Continue reading
Question: “Hello Mr. INTJ. I am an INFP. On the net, I always find that some of the famous authors, actors, writers, artists, music composers are INFPs . But I have never found a single famous military leader, politician, athlete, player, scientist (except Einstein), sci-fi writer in the list of INFPs. All other personality types have some or more of these ranges. Even ENFPs have some world class leaders (though shown in the dark side on celebritytypes.com). In the list of INFPs there are some who have committed suicide. On the other side there are people who have committed mass homicides in other personality types. Why are INFPs always so meek in their behavior? Why are we not as outgoing as other types? I even found on the net that INFPs are the economically the poorest of all types. I will be thankful to you if you put some light on this topic. I know you can understand what I mean to say. So please answer my question as soon as possible.”
Answer: Hello Mr. big questions. I interrupted the queue just to answer this one, so first off, I’ll give you some NFP scientists to make friends with. Michio Kaku and Brian Cox are my two favourites. Go and look them up.
I can tell you right off the bat why ENFPs are more likely to be famous leaders than INFPs. It’s merely because their Te is higher up in the function hierarchy than INFPs.
As to INFPs always being meek? Actually, no, they’re not. Continue reading
The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): If she had her way, she would fantasise all day long about knights in shining armour. She loves to sensationalise all her visions of reality, adding an entire imagined history to her relationship with Algernon. She loves stories of any kind and gets excited when she learns that Miss Prism has written a novel. She prefers fiction to reality. Cecily is witty (classic Wildean epigram talker) and determined.
