Haha, that's so cool! I would've never thought of Bruce Wayne as an introvert. I would've probably characterized him as an ambivert.

Welcome to the challenge! :)

The Long Halloween is excellent. One of my husband's favorites. Enjoy!

I am still hoping to read the four above, but I just read High Fidelity, and if Rob isn't an INTJ, then I need to retake the personality test.

message 13: by Jenny (last edited Feb 25, 2018 01:36AM) (new)

Jenny (jennywilliams88) If any of you are doing Modern Mrs Darcy's challenge as well, Anne has a helpful link on her website to find books for your type:

https://modernmrsdarcy.com/summer-rea...

As for me, I'll be doing two (ISFJ - Protector):
Great Expectations and Anne of Green Gables

UPDATE: Finally managed to finish Great Expectations, but in February! This is not going too well for me at the moment - I also failed in February for the library task! :-)

I'm INFJ - the Advocate.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee Completed 22/1/18 Rating 4 stars

Atticus Finch

1/1


message 23: by Katharine (last edited Dec 26, 2017 03:32PM) (new)

Katharine | 101 comments I'm INFP - the Mediator.

According to the Book Riot link, INFPs are Healers and creative, idealistic, disorganized (I find myself the opposite), and "loners".

I didn't find INFP characters on the sites in books I haven't already read or have a desire to read, so I will try for 2 books.


message 24: by Samyuktha (new)

Samyuktha Sundar | 3 comments Hi, I'm ENFJ and I'm going to try 1 book for this challenge - Emma, by Jane Austen

I'm a mediator too. I've already read Gone With the Wind. Any suggestions on what else I can read?

Dean J. (deanjksmith) | 23 comments Ooh, I'll give this a shot. I'm ESFP - The Entertainer.

I'll shoot for two books, just to be on the safe side:
Captain Wentworth - Persuasion
Kitty Fane - The Painted Veil

Katherine & JoJo, If you can't find anything that tickles your fancy from the Bookriot link that's in Kristin's intro comment of this thread, I found these other links that provide you with a few more ideas: http://parchmentgirl.com/my-top-10-fa... or https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/...

I hope those help :)

Hi Eden, I'm assuming you meant ENFP :)
The Bookriot link mentions: Natasha Rostova (War and Peace), Jonathan Strange (Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell), Willy Wonka (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Horace Slughorn and Nymphadora Tonks (Harry Potter), Josephine March (Little Women), Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing), Marianne Dashwood, and John Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility).

If none of those interest you and want more possibilities, you could check out: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Myers-B...

For more options, here are some people who fit the ENFP type!
Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes, Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady, Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Renly Baratheon from Game of Thrones, Ron Weasley from Harry Potter, Johanna from The Hunger Games, Faramir from The Lord of the Rings....

No problem, JoJo :) The Chronicles of Narnia are some of my favorite childhood books. I hope you enjoy!

I've added you to the participants list with a goal of 2.

The Bell Jar
A Walk to Remember

Dania (frenchiestfry) | 70 comments I saw a couple of ISTJs around here, hi there fellow logisticians!

I'm going for one book, which is The Last Wish, the first book in The Witcher series that the games are based on. The main character, Geralt of Rivia is an ISTJ.


message 44: by Claire (last edited Jan 31, 2018 07:48PM) (new)

Claire  (claire6452) | 685 comments I am an ENFP-T, and I think I will go for 2 books for this challenge:

1. Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit. My personality type is called "Campaigner" so this seemed obvious. Finished 1/16
2. Three Souls This was my gift from my Secret Santa, and the description of the main character indicates that she is extroverted, and acts more on feelings than thoughts, so I think this fits me as well. Finished 1/31


message 45: by Meghan L (new)

Meghan L | 291 comments Here's another decent list, that offers up some different ideas: https://www.purewow.com/books/myers-b...


message 46: by Waco (last edited Feb 25, 2018 10:26PM) (new)

Waco Glennon | 91 comments I would like to participate.

I am an INFJ. I will read two books. [I ended up reading 3 total as I finished Jane Eyre,]

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (Atticus Finch is an INFJ)
The Mysterious Affair at Styles (Hercule Poirot #1) by Agatha Christie (Hercule Poirot is an INFJ)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (Jane Eyre is listed as an INFJ on some lists)

1/2 The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Poirot was listed as an INFJ by the source I used. I can see this especially in his almost intuitive grasp of people and their motives. He is great at getting others to trust him. He is a bit cocky, but his basic good will endears him to all.

2/2 To Kill a Mockingbird

Atticus Finch has a supernatural sense of what his children need. Despite his sister's admonitions, he clearly knows Scout and Jem. I would have loved to have him as a father.

3/2 Jane Eyre

Jane is a good role model for INFJs. Sometimes it is easy to get lost in the feelings and worlds of others Jane remains true to herself despite intimately feeling the emotions of others.


message 47: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (chellesa) | 4 comments I am INFP and in for one book.

Jane Eyre -- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë


message 48: by Hardcover Harlot (new)

Hardcover Harlot (hardcoverharlot) | 390 comments I'm in for 1 book. I'm an ENFJ, and I've been meaning to read Mansfield Park for awhile now. I will apparently connect with Edmund Bertram.


message 49: by Mie (last edited Jan 02, 2018 03:57AM) (new)


message 50: by Vikki (last edited Jan 07, 2018 02:32AM) (new)

Vikki I am an INFJ - so will go for Little Women (Theodore Laurence) as I planned to read it this year

Finished. May add another to my Challenge. Really enjoyed reading through this whilst recognising similar personailty traits in Teddy that I show.
