Sarah Potter Writes

Pursued by the Muses of prose and poetry

Official Announcement: I’m as Odd as Franz Kafka

I’ve just completed an online MBTI test. This personality test is based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which you can read about here

My test results classed me as INFP (I=Introverted, N=Intuition, F=Feeling, P=Perception). Being introverted isn’t always easy, but I’m immensely cheered to know with which writers, poets, and playwright I share this personality type.

Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka

George Orwell
J R R Tolkien
C S Lewis
Virginia Woolf
A A Milne
J K Rowling
Franz Kafka
Edward Allan Poe
Neil Gaiman
Ray Bradbury
H P Lovecraft
Sylvia Plath
John Milton
William Blake
Hans Christian Anderson
Homer
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
William Shakespeare

All I can say is, now I have an excuse for writing strange stuff. It’s in my personality!

Many thanks to the ENFJ (E=Extroverted, N=Abstract, F=Feeling, J=Judging) Christy Birmingham for drawing my attention to this test in her post http://poeticparfait.com/2013/11/21/personality-types-are-you-like-nelson-mandela-too/

    • Yes, brilliant company indeed πŸ™‚ The funny thing is that most of those novelists I’ve mentioned write or have written in the same genres/cross-genres as me, which makes me feel that I’ve chosen the areas most suited to my personality.

  4. Well, as an IFNJ I’m happy to be in the company of Simone de Beauvoir and Mary Wollstonecraft among others!

    • Sounds good πŸ™‚ Interesting that most of us creative people have introversion as the dominant trait. I suppose that’s why a lot of writers hate making public appearances.

      Also amongst my group were a large number of actors (predominantly male ones), who can really act but shy away from doing too many interviews.
