Has anyone seen the movie or read the book? Very excellent.
I couldn't help but think that Chigurh is an ENTj or possibly an ISxj. Everything he said seemed to be smoothly classifiable as an example of a viewpoint influenced by certain functions.
I thought I would start a thread, which I had wanted to for the longest time, but didnt get around to.
a few quotes. (they are not word for word in all cases)
"you talk about what could be but it is not that way. it is this way". Seems to clearly find considering alternate ways of doing something pointless. He wants to pay attention to what is actually happening. Valuing Se.
"[talking to a zoned out shopkeeper] what time do you close? [shopkeeper says "now"] now is not a time, what time do you close? .. what time do you go to bed? You're a bit deaf aren't you? what time do you go to bed?" values paying attention, seems to not understand small talk and focuses on factual accuracy. Te ego, Se valuing.
"[woman says that a coin toss doesn't have a say in what Chigurh does, rather the choice is his] *rolling eyes* but i got here the same way the coin did. ... The coin was travelling 20 years to get to this place and now its here." Seeing things through, or valuing Ni. Probably not program Ni. But seems related to Ni.
"I know something better [than where something is right now]. I know where it will be. [someone responds, you dont know for a certainty] I do know for a certainty." devaluing Ne.
I was actually confused by this one though:
"[responding to an accountant saying that a separate party was sent out for him, the reasoning supporting it being that the more people doing something, the greater chance one would accomplish the goal or something similar] that is foolish, you choose the one right tool"
Fascinating to watch, you all should see the movie
Also seems to act in courteous ways, rule driven in ethics. Yet seems to not have command of Fe. ENTj.
