    Creative Te to be precise -- but that is about the same thing to an ENTj, isn't it?

    ILI's wouldn't be so careless about adding things that don't make sense to their plots.

    Have I suggested that Agatha Christie would be an ILI? Curious that you draw that incorrect conclusion from what I said. But of course LIEs are not that good at conceptual logic ...

    Christie was most likely an SLI, which seems to be a rather common type among writers of detective stories. We have no strong reason to question the correctness of other socionists's typing of her, I think. But we have reason to question your typing ability if you even for a second can think that it's possible that Christie was an IEI.

    It's possible that the stuff that doesn't make sense is related to Ni rather than Te (I'll admit to having a hard time distinguishing where one ends and the other begins at times), but it seems unlikely. Also, it would be strange for an SLI author to make an LSI the hero of her stories though.

    Who is the LSI you have in mind, and how can you be so sure of that hero's type? She has more than one hero, you know.

    I haven't read many of her books - maybe 3 - but to me they seem more like a Delta thing. So maybe IEE.

    IEE is an even more idiotic suggestion. No chance that Christie can be an IEE.

    The Mousetrap is one of my favorite plays... (From what I can remember, not a Se-valuing play, but time might have warped my perception a bit.)

    No suggestion as to type--I haven't read anything beyond the mousetrap...

    P.S. It does seem as though some Russians have her up as SLI... Like I said though, I am not informed enough re: her to have a valuable opinion.

    What makes you think IEI, Joy?

    I think SLI.


    I have read few of her books few years ago. While it is about solving the case there usually runs deep seated relational resentment () which surprised me completely and I was totally out of rails due to that.
    It is also about correcting evil doings between people.


    Poirot seems to be very much convenience dependent character.

    I think lots of SLI's are into learning about poisons and similar kind of information and how those things affect your body.

    The classic 5. I've seen her typed as ILI by Augusta!

    ILI? Hmmm...
    Maybe.

    It does sounds very ILI'ish if you set up a program with surprise finish.

    I think Ma'am Augusta is spot-on actually.

    Her husband is sitting beside her in the video.

    I think they might be a C-H couple.

    I'm friends with an LII on Goodreads that reads all her books and gives them high ratings. I've haven't got around to her yet, but I took his extreme interest as evidence that she may be Alpha. Of course this might be a poor indicator, but I'll come back when I've read one of her books.

    Agreed. LII or LSI, leaning LII.
