    Default Fast Eddie Felson

    I was watching The Hustler last night, and was trying to type Fast Eddie. I couldn't really find much of a basis in the way of functions, but EP temperament I thought was pretty evident, and I know it's weak, but his Sensing was more evident than his Intuition. Then I thought about Paul Newman in conjunction with his character. Since Paul Newman is an ESI, I looked around this type for possibilities, and thought SEE wasn't such a longshot. What do you think? For those of you haven't seen the film, or who need to refresh your memories, here are some insightful videos into his character.

    Great movie choice. I dunno if you've ever seen "The Color of Money" where Paul Newman mentors Tom Cruise on the ways of hustling much like he's known for in the movie you posted. You may even be able to use that movie a bit easier to type him if you haven't seen it. He's the same character in that movie as he was in the original and this is where he pretty much comes back to playing pool after his long hiatus due to the money issues brought up in "The Hustler."
    A cool scene from that movie...


    I'm sure you know that I won't type him cuz I just don't do that...lol, just felt like posting.

    The Color Of Money is a great film. Not as good as The Hustler but certainly worth the watch and the buy.
