There’s a lot more to say about this topic but I tried to keep it short and stay on track for once.
Shout out to Carolyn, whose name I mentioned and then edited out for time. BOW TO MY SUPREME KNOWLEDGE.
Here you go. SP/NF being posted later.
I’ve got one more Harry Potter post on the way, you should get a kick out of it. And by get a kick out of it, I mean you might be mildly pleased and then immediately move on.
If you had to think of the know-it-all character that actually might know it all, Hermione is a great character. While it may be tough to balance the lead, the funny guy, and the smart one without making any of them too bland and stereotypical, all characters pull off their tropes with unique flair.
Much of Hermione’s traits appear in the form an ESTJ’s would; often times correct, many times difficult to handle. Smart, competent and direct, Hermione shows off some of the best traits an ESTJ character can display. Crazy how often they’re portrayed as the villain but with Te as their first function, it’s no wonder why. Continue reading
I had to word the title carefully so as not to make it sound like I was typing “Heroes,” the show and so it wouldn’t so like the other post, MBTI: The Types (of Types) of Heroes. Though I guess any writer who knows how to bring in the readers would have made it sound like both of those posts just to get everybody. But that ain’t me.
If you’ve come here enough, you’ve seen links to what has to be one of the greatest sites on the internet, TV Tropes. Yes, even better than BubbaliciousBlackBubbleButts.com.

If you see the name, there is a link to it. Continue reading
Emotions that have emotions? Muh mind is blown! Surprise, Disney and Pixar are still breaking records together with “heartwarming comedies that are fun for the whole family!” And it’s not like it’s all just hype either, their work is pretty much always solid. It should be, right? They spend enough money to afford a small army.
Now we explore the feelings of the feelings. It wasn’t too hard to get a bead on these characters given that the personification of feelings are going to have their own feelings expressed pretty boldly. Continue reading
Or Live. Die. Repeat., whatever. I prefer the source material title, All You Need is Kill, but it all sounds good.
Maybe one of the most interesting types to me in fiction because of their trudging tenacity through life and all it’s problems. Rita’s a lot older than she looks thanks to living the same day over and over again for who knows how long.
Using a mech suit, a helicopter blade, and at one point, time travel, the “Angel of Verdun” has got a lot of tools in her arsenal. But surprise, no matter how many times she tried, she just couldn’t bring down the alien menace…alone. Continue reading
