My obsession with Myers Briggs continues, only now it's intersecting with a renewed interest in Lost, thanks to my recent discovery of Lost and Gone Forever. That blogger can THINK!
So I really want to do an MBTI analysis of the main Lost characters, sort of along the lines of what Bea did for Harry Potter. I can barely focus on work. And I keep finding myself caught up in loopholes and exceptions and roadblocks.
I think Bea is either INFJ or ENFJ, and she has a great ability to see patterns and group things within a structure. As an ENFP, I think I'm a bit more concerned with the individual and I tend to jump into things without a plan or a structure. So when I attempt an analysis of Lost characters, I see a sea of individuals and I can't seem to group them together.
I'm also discovering a few assumptions that I'd like (you) to validate.
I suspect that extraverts might have more insight into people's motivations and consequently a bigger capacity for manipulation. Does that mean anyone who manipulates people, for whatever reason, cannot be introverted?
I also think NT's have way more capacity for deception than NF's. Does that mean anyone who willfully deceives people cannot be an F?
What do you think?
In the meantime, I'll keep working on my unstructured analysis...
