    Default Marcel Proust

    http://etext.library.adelaide.edu.au...cel/proust.jpg

    i'm reading "remembrance of things past." INTp?

    i noticed that proust and virginia woolf have the same eyelids.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    I remember someone (I think it was FDG) mentioned he was INFp?
    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."
    -- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

    Definitely Ni, and probably Ip > Ej. (It's curious that famous INxps are almost invariably described as having been "sickly children". Si Superego, it seems.)

    "Happiness is beneficial for the body but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind."

    Now that sounds INTp. Need some better arguments, though.

    Really? Proust seems to me like the most IEI example of all IEIs. The whole theme of "fleetingness"? What other type would write whole novels on that..

    edit-

    ftr I enjoy Fi-ego authors much more, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky are my favorite authors. They have much more substance, they reveal a lot about the circumstances of their time. I could only read a couple pages of Proust, and I'm not gonna lie I don't think it has the same substance. I really enjoyed what I read though, he's all about the elegance of the moment being captured, or something like that.

    "It is always during a passing state of mind that we make lasting resolutions."

    "All our final decisions are made in a state of mind that is not going to last."

    ~ Marcel Proust
    “Whether we fall by ambition, blood, or lust, like diamonds we are cut with our own dust.”
