MBTI: Fox Mulder- INFP

fox

It’s easy to see The X-Files’ resident conspiracy theorist as an NT: always questioning, always searching, always paranoid and heck, the show was about aliens and government cover-ups, a Rational playpen.

Originally typing him, I was sure he was INTP but a slightly closer look reveals his Idealist ways as an INFP, especially in contrast to Scully, his obvious anchor. She’s the only thing that keeps Mulder from going completely insane, something she couldn’t do for him if he were actually an INTP. Ha ha. Continue reading

MBTI: Superman- ESFJ

Of all the superheroes in the vast world of comics, there’s one that’s always stood (or flown) above the rest. He’s the closest thing to Jesus a character has gotten since…well, Jesus.

His Holier-than-thou reputation isn’t his own doing as much as it is the truth: he’s more physically powerful than just about any character ever created and even with limitless abilities (blowing out a star with his breath), he still chooses to be a protector of humanity. His exaggerated abilities and ideology easily mirror the “perfect” type, the ESFJ. Continue reading

MBTI: Lisbeth Salander- INTJ

fire

In what may be about the rarest type in the worlds of reality and fiction, Salander is a great example of the female INTJ. This may not come to a surprise to people who are familiar with Type Theory and The Millenium Trilogy but people that wonder why this character has such a lasting impression with fans apart from his fashion choices can find their answer with her being properly typed.

Aside from being a rare type in general (1-2% of the population), being a female in a predominantly masculine type sets her apart as well. Her impact in the fiction world makes sense when you consider the following. Continue reading

MBTI: Faye Valentine- ESTP

faye

If you’ve ever seen Cowboy Bebop, you know exactly the kind of character Faye is- loud, brash and selfish- but fun. A lot of forums and other sites have typed her as ENFJ, but I have no freaking idea where they would’ve gotten that from.

It’s possible they’re just trying to give each character in the show a different group; Artisan, Rational, Guardian, and Idealist. But there’s no Idealist on the Bebop and here’s why the only woman on board is Extroverted Sensor first. Continue reading

MBTI: Morpheus- ENFJ

morph

This one’s a bit trickier, but as far as ENFJs go, Morpheus fits the type pretty well. It can seem especially difficult in a film series where just about everybody dresses in leather, suits and sunglasses while most lines are questions with a one word response.

Character 1: Is this going to work?

Character 2: It has to.

Seems like a world full of Introverts which lead many to speculate that Morpheus is also a solitary man, but that would have more to do with the movie keeping a steady rhythm. At a closer look, it gets pretty clear that Morpheus is not only an Extrovert, but an Extroverted Feeler first. Unfortunately, no one can be told what Morpheus is. You have to read it for yourself.  Continue reading

MBTI: James Bond- ISTP

bond

People generally view the various actors that have played Bond differently. Obviously. It’s why the question can be asked “Who’s your favorite Bond?” and you can always get a different answer.

It’s usually between Connery and Moore it seems and people’s typings range from ESTP to ENTJ- it’s everywhere. But what about the character as a whole?

For that, you look no further than your silent action hero, the ISTP. Continue reading

MBTI: Judge Dredd- ISTJ

dredd

I’ve heard Judge Dredd range from ISTP to INTJ, but this guy has ISTJ written all over him. His approach, his look, his themes, everything- the ultimate ISTJ in any incarnation. If this were any other type and I mean any other type, at some point some sort of breakdown could be conceivably written for him where “everything he’s ever known is wrong!” Or maybe he decides he’s going to go “off the books” on this one and do things his own way.

But he doesn’t and won’t ever, because it’s not in his personality. Introverted Sensing first, baby. Continue reading

MBTI: L- INTP

L1

*Potential Spoilers*

In the world of Death Note, “The Greatest Detective in the World” is posed with the task of finding a serial killer that murders criminals by supernatural means of a heart attack.

What’s the perfect type for the eccentric loner, solving crimes through an ‘ends justify the means’ view? One who’s willing to bridge the gap between the real world and the paranormal? INTP, of course. L’s Ti comes in clearly by his way of thinking on his toes rather than Te’s desire to take a step back and reflect on given information. Continue reading

THE LEGEND IS REBORN

Posted in Whatever on 07/14/2013 by McCutcheon

If you’re wondering where I’ve been (you haven’t), I can definitely confirm that I have not been dead. I just got really sick of reviewing movies I knew where going to be crap, yet sitting through them anyway.

It’s easy to see how a professional critic (whatever that is) can get to the point where they become movie snobs, in that they only seem to really like movies that the general populace has to have a treasure map to find out where that award-winning, bizarre piece of film-making has been hidden.

You know, the one that has the woman that hires another woman to seduce her husband so she can get a divorce and all her husband’s money, but then the wife accidentally gets seduced by that woman who has actually been working with the husband all along…only to find out that the seductive woman is their daughter. Oh, you didn’t see that one? It won about 12 awards. Or maybe it was Wild Things 8: The Quickening.

Anyway, expect to see some stuff on here.

This is where I got the title.

This is where I got the title. Just FYI.
