    Interesting. Now let us see if we can expand that list.

    Which is why we should probably expand the list to include characters which we have read. :wink:

    Yeah, well...I'm gonna try and buy some of these books, you know... Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol seems interesting from looking at wikipedia - and Astrid Lindgren was the person who wrote Pippi Longstocking - but it appears this particular book of hers is difficult to obtain at a low price .

    I've added links to all the texts available online for free - you might not like reading them on a computer, but you could just read the brief extracts concerning the relevant character or see if you like the book, and then buy a physical copy.

    I hope I haven't ruined your thread with my nonsense.
    That's the line said by Rhett Butler right at the end of the film version of Gone With The Wind...I thought I was being extremely clever.

    I wanna name my kid Rhett, that'd be great.

    Maybe he can be an extra in the new "Gone with the Wind" as himself. But he'd move very slow. Being half-snail is sad ):

    Rhett = ENTP
    Scarlett = ESTJ

    The whole thing makes a lot of sense socionics wise with Scarlet being a Benefactor to Rhett .... just amazing how they got it so right (script and character wise) somehow the relationship has a ring of truth about it, i can only guess that the author based the dynamic on a couple he knew in real life.
