Feature Friday: A Book Recommendation for Every Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Any other INTJs out there?  *virtual high five*  I thought this list from flavorwire was pretty clever.  Tell me what personality type are you, and do you agree with your recommendation?  I agree with mine! 

See the full article here.

The-Age-of-Innocence
ISTJ: The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
With interest in traditions and loyalty, and an ability to make a huge impact despite being quiet, ISTJs will appreciate Wharton’s masterpiece of manners.

emily post
ISFJ: Emily Post’s Etiquette
Conscientious, thorough, and neat, this manual dots every I and crosses every T on the page of life — as does the ISFJ.
Pride and Prejudice
INTJ: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The INTJ is fiercely independent, like a true Austen heroine, and skeptical like the novel’s creator.
The Origin of Species
ISTP:The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin
Evidence, facts, and observation, all building to a rational argument. Darwin’s groundbreaking and lively scientific text is emblematic of this type.

oblomov

ISFP: Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov
You love your own space and are not a fan of conflict, much like the hero of this classic Russian novel — who won’t even get out of bed for the first section!

white-noise-delillo

INTP: White Noise by Don DeLillo
Clinical and ideas-oriented, the INTP will appreciate DeLillo, the writer as philosopher-scientist, who has a knack for observing and even predicting the fate of our times.
colorpurple
INFP: The Color Purple by Alice Walker
A deeply loyal seeker of understanding will appreciate this classic book that’s full of empathy and loyalty to its battered but unbroken characters.
ulysses
INFJ: Ulysses by James Joyce
Like an INFJ, the classic by Joyce is hard to get into and definitely intimidating, but once you discover its world, you find it warm, humanistic, and even a little bit silly.
Lady-Chatterleys-Lover
ESTP: Lady Chatterly’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence
The ESTP values experiential learning and living, much like D.H. Lawrence and his randy, earth-loving characters.
AnneofGreenGables_476x357

ESFP: The Anne of Green Gables series, L.M. Montgomery
A positive force who makes boring tasks fun and brings people together, the ESFP is as spunky and beloved as the world’s most cherished redheaded orphan.
harry potter
ENFP: The Harry Potter novels by J.K. Rowling
Much like the ENFP, the Potter series ends up messily and flubs a few key details, but also takes everyone on a joyful and wild ride.
huck finn
ENTP: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Resourceful, quick, and clever ENTPs will find much to appreciate about Huck and Twain both.
lean-in-by-sheryl-sandberg_original
ESTJ: Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg
Practical, take-charge types will enjoy Sandberg’s exhortation for women to find the leader within before the system changes to embrace them.

MAO.7375.cvr comp
ESFJ: Howard’s End by E.M. Forster
The classic novel’s humanistic refrain — “only connect” — appeals to this type, who thrives on idealism and harmony.

PoliLittleWomen
ENFJ: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
The March family’s warmth and willingness to sacrifice for each other and the Union are bound to hold a treasured place in the heart of ENFJs, who are known to give themselves to others.
invisibleman
ENTJ: Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
A brilliant and imaginative critique of race in America will be a great fit for this pathfinding and galvanizing type.

  1. I'm an ESFJ. I've been meaning to read Little Women for a while. I really need to read it this year.

    1. I loved Little Women! So much warmth in one family, despite the struggles and conflicts. I hope you are able to read it sometime soon!
