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/

  1. Hi Sarah! Is there a way of getting in touch with you privately? I looked everywhere on your site and couldn’t find an email address or a contact form. Please send me an email so I can write you back. πŸ™‚

    1. 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.

    1. 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.
