INTJ - Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging

Started by Steph S.. Last reply by Joan Denoo Nov 19, 2013. 2 Replies

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies…Continue

Oh, so cool that you are reading my paper Catherine! I will have to go back and read the Iliad again now that I know what I'm doing. As a kid its all just adventure and who knows what, but Homer really comes to life in maturity. He was a master story-teller, so yes, I think they must both have been written by him except the last two chapters of the Odyssey. You might notice that the style changes dramatically, the incisive wit vanishes, and the poetry suffers. Some good bits in there, but I think they must have been added later.

 

And yes, I did start reading early, by age 3 if my mother remembers correctly, and have been an avid reader for most of my life.

You are correct David, a lot of us do enjoy writing. If you get back into it I have a group,you could posts your stories in. : )
Comment by David Loewen on May 12, 2012 at 10:36pm

I always find it interesting how many introverts enjoy writing. Maybe it's just me, but I would say the major portion of introverts I've met (myself included) are writers of some sort. Be it fiction, non-fiction, short stories, blogs, whatever. For me, it usually fiction, although I haven't written much in far too long. Maybe I should get back onto Ficly, again. :-)

David I did buy that book from Amazon .. I think I'll start a discussion so we can all discuss it here. Looks like most of us will be buying or have the book. Thanks again David!

Comment by Patricia on May 12, 2012 at 3:38pm

Sounds like a great book, David. I've been borrowing library books to my e-reader so will add this book to my list. Thanks.

Comment by Jedi Wanderer on May 12, 2012 at 12:15pm

Oh, mal chance! I don't read French. What a shame, because that sounds like something I would just love. I'm not well-versed or anything, but I love Greek mythology. I just wrote a paper on the Odyssey, but I write philosophy, non-fiction only. :-)

Comment by Steph S. on May 12, 2012 at 10:42am

Oh ok ... yeah I guess you wouldn't be able to post that .. right

Do you sell your books on Amazon?

Comment by Steph S. on May 12, 2012 at 10:31am

I am so glad you feel at home here Catherine. That's the reason I made this group.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
I am glad each of you are here.

Comment by Steph S. on May 12, 2012 at 10:30am

That's sounds so interesting Catherine. I have a group in which you could post your writings.

Hi Marty! You know I do the same thing .. I have insomnia and I'll sleep for a few hours and wake up by 4AM and then I try to get more sleep.
