It only makes sense for Debra to be the complete inverse of her brother Dexter in…Dexter.

The subject of much debate, Debra’s personality becomes clearer the longer the show goes on. While the description of her personality on the Dexter Wiki is a little muddled (Let’s start using that word more often, shall we?), it still paints a pretty clear picture of someone that runs on emotion, instinct, possibilities, and teamwork.

Also, she jumps from partner to partner…just puttin’ that out there… Continue reading

MBTI: Darth Vader- ISTJ

Uh-oh. He’s back. The ever-serious, dictator of detail is here for another round and he knows you don’t like him. He doesn’t want you to like him. You’ll get more work done that way.

There’s a wide range of what Darth Vader could be. He seems to be a completely different character than Anakin Skywalker in many respects and when you’ve seen the prequels, Vader’s entire persona could come off like a mask to hide his actual whiny personality. Now you know where his son gets it from.

But both Anakin and Vader do fit into the same personality, one is just the unhealthy side. So let’s take a closer look at this heavy-breathing, galaxy-ruling maniac. Continue reading

Haters gonna hate. That’s all I’m saying.

As many problems as people have had with the Devil May Cry reboot, it’s actually a really good game. I don’t really hear anybody complaining about the game itself as much as they are the fact that their favorite characters were changed around and unrecognizable to them.

Having played the second one for PS2 and not being able to play the third past the first couple levels (I just couldn’t do it), I’m not a fan of the original series so I wasn’t bothered by the changes. I really like what they had done as far as story, characters, pacing, tone, etc.

So as far as the characters go, I thought it was an interesting combination of the INTJ behind the scenes with the plan, and his ESTP brother doing all the heavy lifting. Continue reading

MBTI: Ed- ENTP

While all the characters n Cowboy Bebop have their humorous moments, intentional or otherwise, none of them embody the weirdness of the series the way the genius thirteen year old Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV (the name she gave herself).

Originally intended to be a boy but made a girl for the purposed of balancing out the cast, Ed’s role in the show is usually intended for humor but her place on the Bebop can’t be denied. Continue reading

MBTI Comparison: Training Day’s ENTJ and ESTJ

It’s unusual for a film to pair an ESTJ and ENTJ together. Normally, it’s the ENTJ personality that controls his various minions as ESTJ tells his two Artisan rogue cops that they “DON’T FOLLOW THE RULES BUT DAMMIT, YOU GET THE JOB DONE!”

It’s just the way it goes.

But maybe this unique positioning of character is what makes this movie so memorable. It’s too easy to put an ISFP under the tutelage of a ESTP or something of the like. “This guy’s like, a goodguy, and this other guy is, I don’t know, like Wolverine or something!” Good cop, bad cop, blah blah blah.

But a “goody two shoes” that’s being trained supposedly for the law yet could be seen as a representation of Satan himself? I’m in. Here are some key differences and similarities between the characters and types. Continue reading

MBTI: Elizabeth Shaw- INFP

While any type is capable of going further than they should in whatever situation, there’s few types that question themselves about it and then keep going. The two that would seem to be most prone to the ethics of their own situation only to continue would be INTP and INFP.

While the two can hardly be confused, there’s still their conviction and determination toward a question that may never be answered that could allow one to mistake one for another. Fox Mulder may be the closest call but Prometheus‘ Dr. Shaw has her moments where obsession and progress meet to blur the lines of what is being done, and what should be done.

INFPs are so deep like, I can’t even take it. Continue reading
