comment How to name the characters of your story?
Heh... PG Wodehouse gave his characters silly names almost exclusively: Bertie Wooster, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Cyril Fotheringay-Phipps, Roderick Spode, etc.

comment Is discovery or outline writing connected to personality type (e.g. MBTI)
I'd like to point out that just because the MBTI isn't used in research doesn't make it any less useful. Jung (whose typology the MBTI is based on) was a "depth" psychologist and was quite clear that typology delved into areas that he felt simply couldn't be researched. So you have to take it with a grain of salt as it isn't backed by research, but I think there are still useful things to be learned from it.
