    Default Indiana Jones is the coolest SLI ever

    I'm watching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom again on BBC3. He's a legend. I have no doubt about the Fe PoLR.

    Name some other SLI characters from films and literature, just to inspire me some more, and prove that no SLI is cooler than Indie.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    Indy's the man.

    I still think Sawyer is an SLI.

    I loved Indiana Jones back when I was a kid. Heck, it was simply amazing the simple idea of running around and visiting interesting places and getting out of trouble in cool ways. A life like that will never be boring...

    And... Tom Sawyer SLI?

    Ive had a few beers so be gentle, but reading your quote about getting out of trouble reminded me of mcgyver. I cant remember the persona well but could he be SLI?



    How about Han Solo? Still Harrion but different characters.

    Sawyer is hot, but seemed to be such a huge, huge jerk on Lost. I thought he was ESTP on the show...maybe the actor is ISTP and the character ESTP? Anyway, the character seemed so devious and scheming and kinda manipulative. Is this how ISTPs are? I don't know if I could handle that. If that's my dual than maybe I've mis-typed myself...

    But Indiana Jones always seemed nice. I used to watch that Lost Arc one again and again as a kid...loved all the treasure and snakes, etc.

    Hmmm. As I see it, Sawyer would always be there by himself, smoking a cigarette or reading a book - basically, minding his own business - only to have someone come along and bother him.

    It seems a case of an ISTP forced to become ESTP under circumstances...like force my hand pointed out. If he is not ISTP, then ESTP would be the next obvious guess.

    Yeah i actually agree. Sawyer was manipulative but he has been pretty twisted by the events in his life. Nowdays Sawyer seems less bad and more chilled out

    Han Solo would kick Indiana Jone's ass in a fight.
    Maybe I think this because when I saw Indie I thought he was a kinda bumbling charmer, and when I saw Star Wars I totally and instantly wanted to BE Han Solo.
    ... But I'm also a science fiction junkie, so maybe the Millenium Falcon and laster blasters tipped the scales for me .

    I thought that the Mr Darcy in question was Al bundy's neighbor on Married With Children... If so, that guy's the shiz.

    How about Inspector Harry Callahan?



    Dirty Harry is a legend.

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    This is a good time to compare Eastwood with Firth and try to see the difference I am seeing and the reason I think Eastwood is LSI.

    I think Beta ST is more likely.

    I think perhaps in his westerns, Eastwood portrays an SLI quite well.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    Fair enough, but I would say that other potentially SLI Eastwood characters like Preacher or Man With No Name are every bit as cool, if not more so, than 'indy.'



    I'd also like to mention almost every Charles Bronson character ever played, particularly Arthur Bishop from THE MECHANIC.

    Oh yes, totally. Specially the scene where he's planning a hit and he uncorks a bottle of fine wine and all

    Based on my 'gut' reaction as an ENFp, I'd guess that the following are likely ISTps:

    Clint Eastwood (love ALL his films)
    Sawyer from Lost (very HOT)
    Mel Gibson (Yum)

    I could watch Dirty Harry and Bridges of Madison County 1000x and never get sick of these two movies. The second one might be a 'chick flick' but it's just as INTENSE as Dirty Harry but just a different emotion.

    Long live ISTp's! They rock!!!
