MBTI: VOLDEMORT- ENTJ

It could have only come down to two choices, right? INTJ or ENTJ. We must have gone over the differences a hundred times by now but there’s always a new way to word it.

Tom Marvolo, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Tom Riddle, You-Know-Who; they’re all named to denote the most evil of evil. The guy who has about as much going for him as Satan himself. But unlike the only other type he could be confused for, the INTJ, Voldemort, once powerful enough, prefers to literally be on the front lines of the battle, making sure he’s seen. Because hiding in the shadows isn’t nearly as much fun as destroying the light head-on. Not when you’ve got the power anyway. Continue reading

MBTI: Hermione Granger- ESTJ

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

MBTI: Ron Weasley- ESFP

This is a bit of an obvious one, ey?

The bumbling sidekick who isn’t as talented as the main hero? Check? Comic relief? Check. Always willing to put themselves in dangerous situations with hardly any thought to their own safety? Oh yeah. Though his competence still shows through from time to time.

There are plenty of ways to write an ESFP but in stories like these, the funny right-hand man is needed not only for levity in an otherwise dark story, but to give our hero something to bounce off of. Being heroic with no one around is much harder to write than if you have the best friend around who doesn’t mind pointing out how insane the current situation is. That’s Ron. Continue reading

MBTI: Rubeus Hagrid- ESFJ

If there’s a trend to be noticed in ESFJ figures of fiction, specifically with male characters, is that they’re just as much likely to give you a semi-painful hug as they are knock your head off with a well-placed punch…that is, if you threaten a loved one.

From The Thing to Baymax, Allen the Alien to Superman, Hagrid seems to fit right into the functions of dominant Fe/auxiliary Si in a way that has him living day-to-day, taking care of those around him. You’d think a half-giant living in a world of magic would be doing more with himself (whatever that might be) but when you’ve got everything you need, why get greedy? Continue reading

MBTI: The Force Awakens’ Rey

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , , on 05/02/2016 by McCutcheon

For those of you who can’t get enough MBTI and typing characters, Tim Schwab has got an article on Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Rey and her type. Who is Tim and what type is Rey? Well, you’ll have to click this orange sentence to find out. Did I write this? No, Tim did. But I agree with his typing on Rey and Finn, whatever that means to you. He knows what he’s doing, trust him and trust the force. Now get on over there and tell him why “No, she’s actually an INFJ.”

MBTI: Star Wars

So I’ve been gone for a bit, I know.

I’ve noticed a pattern with myself and Zombies Ruin Everything. I dig in, write nonstop for a few months and then I stop and I’m fine with not doing anything with it for three months or so. I don’t plan this out, but I can’t keep writing when I don’t want to write. That being said, I’m working on a new screenplay that I may or may not post here when I’m done writing that, which is what’s been taking up my time when I’m on butt and on the computer. There’s not really an audience since I’ve mostly become known for MBTI stuff but we’ll see how it goes.

ANYWAY, the new Star Wars is out and since the layout of the site is so simple, it’s much easier for me to collect on the characters in a single post than for you to search through the archives for them.

Fun fact, I was one of the thousands (Just one) of people that sent in recorded auditions for the role of Finn in The Force Awakens. Clearly, I didn’t get it but I do have a clip of myself watching the movie. I’m on the right, Bryce is on the left .

Let me know what you think of the movie.

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

Wow, I can’t believe Jar Jar is in this one!

Just kidding. So now that I’ve written the review for The Force Awakens and told you pretty much nothing about what’s on screen, this post is focused on thoughts I had about the movie that leave no spoiling stone unturned. If you’ve watched the movie, keep reading. If you don’t want anything ruined- do the opposite of keeping reading. Continue reading

Oh, hi guys. I’m here to write teh Star Warz four you.

Gearing up to be the biggest movie of all time (In your face, Avatar), if only behind the original Star Wars, expectations are high but should always be kept in moderation. Write that down, you’ll need it. You’ve got the fans that are going to love it no matter what and you’ve got the people who are going to hate it no matter how much they actually enjoy it.

This movie should satisfy both of them and pretty much everybody else in between. I don’t need to tell you it’s not perfect but it’s what we should have gotten in 1999 instead of Episode I. But those prequels were just doomed to disappoint, weren’t they? Continue reading

GOING THE DISTANCE: How Sylvester Stallone created a film Icon and why he still matters

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , on 11/25/2015 by McCutcheon

Written by Jacob Ethan Sapp!

When Rocky hit the scene in 1976, it introduced the world to the one of the most iconic characters in the history of cinema, won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, and became America’s favorite underdog story. It’s almost crazy to think about how well received the original film was nearly 40 years later.

There were no early warning signs, this movie just struck out of the blue. Produced on a modest budget (by the same team Winkler-Chertoff pairing that produced every subsequent film), and starring a virtually unknown lead actor/Writer in Sylvester Stallone, this film could easily have been overlooked as an amusing, but insignificant character piece in a year otherwise dominated by Scorsese’s seminal masterpiece, Taxi Driver, or the truly terrific, Network. The film didn’t boast cutting edge effects, a big-name composer such as John Williams, (who at the time was probably working on a little picture he assumed nobody would ever watch called Star Wars), there were no big action set pieces, or shocking twists. It’s not a glamorous affair, as such Rocky’s success hinged on the old-school fundamentals of great storytelling, genuinely terrific acting, and a steady-handed director. Continue reading

MBTI: DC characters are hard to type

Posted in MBTI Whatever with tags , , on 10/07/2015 by McCutcheon

DC1

You might have noticed the amount of Marvel characters over DC (or any other company) on this site. There are a few reasons for that. One is that I grew up with Marvel and I’m much more familiar with them. So it’s natural to do more research on top of what I already know to definitively (or at least confidently) type their characters.

But that’s not really it. It has more to do with the style of the way the characters are written, and what sets them apart from other companies in the same industry. Continue reading
