    When the heavens above did not exist,
    And earth beneath had not come into being —
    There was Apsû, the first in order, their begetter,
    And demiurge Tia-mat, who gave birth to them all;
    They had mingled their waters together
    Before meadow-land had coalesced and reed-bed was to he found —
    When not one of the gods had been formed
    Or had come into being, when no destinies had been decreed,
    The gods were created within them:

    Kierkegaard wrote a review of Andersen's books early in his career. His views of Andersen as a writer and a man are mixed, but Kierkegaard criticizes Andersen for what he perceives as cowardliness and mawkishness. It's not definitive evidence, but I perceive it as being an IEI's critical view of an EII.
    Andersen's tales (it should be noted that he was not merely a fairy-tale writer, but also a writer of novels, poetry and travelogues) deal primarily with morals and Andersen's own emotions. I don't see much Ni at all.
