    Default Charles Dickens

    I was sure I had made a post about his type recently but it seems he doesn't even have a dedicated thread.

    Reinin apparently types him as ESE...my own view is that EJ temperament seems right, and from what I remember about his childhood and early life, strong would make sense (I seem to recall he had a flamboyant appearance for example - I'm not sure of the strength of this and it is a minor detail compared to descriptions of his personality from that time ...I also don't think it precludes ).

    HA makes more sense than HA...as for EP types...I don't think I've considered those in great depth but I forget.

    When I was thinking of type in Recent Times, I was thinking IEE, although I'm not sure if this is problematic for whatever previous reasoning I had.

    I did find this link potentially useful: http://www.photohistory-sussex.co.uk...sPortraits.htm

    I see no Fe in his writings, more of LSE, possibility of SLI. Delta, yes.

    that does sound IEE, or maybe LSE.

    "He enjoyed mimicry and popular entertainment, lacked a clear, specific sense of what he wanted to become, and yet knew he wanted fame" - Not 1D T, but I don't think that's 4D T either. I could be wrong here, but I'm going to stick with at least 2D T.

    "
    Before another opportunity arose, he had set out on his career as a writer" - Valued I ?

    "
    In spite of the abolitionist sentiments gleaned from his trip to America, some modern commentators have pointed out inconsistencies in Dickens's views on racial inequality, for instance, he has been criticized for his subsequent acquiescence in Governor Eyre's harsh crackdown during the 1860s Morant Bay rebellion in Jamaica and his failure to join other British progressives in condemning it." - Weak L

    With these notes and a couple of others, for instance, "
    In 1832, at age 20, Dickens was energetic and increasingly self-confident. He enjoyed mimicry and popular entertainment, lacked a clear, specific sense of what he wanted to become, and yet knew he wanted fame," makes me think E is stronger than R and I is stronger than T. This leads me to think he's IEE.
