    interesting! i never thought istps would be have any penchant for writing. he seemed a little expressive for an istp though, and i have trouble believing he's not an intuitor. maybe ENFp too

    i know most writers are NFs, and even more are NFj's (MBTI NFP). here's something i found at The Psychology of Creative Writing - Cambridge University Press

    "I administered the MBTI to a group of 15 successful women writers and to a comparison group of 15 female elementary school teachers. Two strong patterns emerged. In agreement with the IPAR data, most of the writers preferred Intuition (N) and Perception (P). As Myers and McCaulley said, “Data from the world is received in ways that go beyond the senses and that they preferred to see patterns, relationships, and meaning in all they perceive” (1985, p. 135). Seventy-five percent of the women writers preferred the NF (Intuition Feeling or NT (Intuition Thinking) combination, in contrast to only 20% of the comparison group of elementary school teachers. Instead, like most elementary teachers, the comparison group of teachers preferred the SF combination (Sensing and Feeling; Piirto, 1998c). Women in the general population are more likely to prefer Feeling than Thinking, and that is why the instrument itself has separate templates for males and females when scoring those preferences (also see Myers & McCaulley, 1985); this was true for the comparison group as well as for the women writers.

    My research confirms what was found by Barron (1968a), who indicated that the writers he studied also preferred Feeling and Intuition: The writers were “distinctly more introverted than extraverted, more feeling than thinking, and more intuitive than oriented to sense experience” (pp. 237, 245). Since the IPAR study included more men than women writers, the results here show that there seem to be no great gender differences in personality type preferences, indicating that the “sun” of gender may be environmental, as postulated in my Piiramid of Talent Development (see Figure 1.1)."

    looking at his pictures he looks like an IEI. Reading his writings he sounds like an IEI.
