Fiction takes the Myers-Briggs

You are probably familiar with the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, often used in job assessments to understand how to optimize your career for your personal traits and interests.

What if your favorite books were to take the Myers-Briggs? I am an ENTJ, and according to this Huffington Post article, so is Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

The analysis considers four areas of your personality:

Introvert (I) versus Extravert (E)

Are you invigorated by office gossip or do you hide out in the nap room?

Intuitive (N) versus Sensing (S)

If someone asks you what time it is, are you likely to say “3ish” or “3:04”? In other words, are you a big picture thinker, or detail-oriented?

Thinking (T) versus Feeling (F)

Are you a people person, or a “How It’s Made” person?

Judging (J) versus Perceiving (P)

Is your desk covered in receipts, Starbucks cups, silly putty (?), and half-finished knitting projects, or a simple to-do list with every item checked off?

So what’s it going to be? Are you more of a Little Woman? A Tale of Two Cities? a Harry Potter? a Middlesex?
