As we all know, every good poet is beta (except Wallace Stevens, who is ILI). Lets list some:

William Wordsworth (possibly IEI, possible SEI. Not sure.)
William Blake-IEI(-D)
Samuel Taylor Coleridge-IEI-H
Percy Bysshe Shelley-IEI-C
John Keats-IEI-H
Lord Byron-SLE
John Milton-not sure, but I've been toying with ESTp for a while. But he might be another IEI-C. I dunno. Beta regardless.
William Shakespeare-EIE
Walt Whitman-EIE

Agree on Blake and Shakespeare. Whitman could be INFp instead of ENFj, but is one of those.

I thought you were sure on Wallace Stevens being SLE? I remember considering EIE on him before, but SLE seemed reasonably evident to me after reading him a bit.

Some Beta writers off the top of my head would be:

Ralph Waldo Emerson - ENFj
Oscar Wilde - ENFj
William S. Burroughs - ISTj
George Orwell - ISTj
Anthony Burgess - ESTp
Ernest Hemingway - ESTp
Jack Keroauc - ESTp
Ayn Rand - ESTp
Mary Shelley - ESTp
Aldous Huxley - INFp
James Joyce - INFp
Edgar Allen Poe - INFp

Huxley <3

I've heard Orwell as IEE and ILI before, but I always thought he made more sense as Beta, or at least Se/Ni.

He's sporting a Hitler-stache here:

Herman Hesse - IEI-Ni 4w3 sx/so (my all-time favorite author, I never imagined that anyone could so accurately translate my view of reality into words; each and every one of his books carries intense personal meaning for me)
Albert Camus - IEI-Ni 4w5 sx/sp
Frederich Nietzsche - Beta NF, Ni sub (I lean EIE>IEI personally) 4w3 sx/so
Søren Kierkegaard - IEI-Fe 4w3 so/sx
Ray Bradbury - IEI-Fe 4w5 sx/so
Neil Gaiman - Beta Introvert, IEI>LSI, likely 4w3 sp/sx

Some questionable:
Tim O'Brien - LSI-Se; alternately ESI or LSE, probably 6w5 so/sx

Yeah he does look pretty definitively Se/Ni in that pic. I can definitely see LSI. Good call.
