    Default the 16 super types

    If each type had a super power, what would it be?

    Ideally the super power should have an inherent weakness (as super powers generally do), and dual pairs' powers cover each other's weaknesses. One's conflictor could also be one's "natural enemy" (like fire and water). If someone's feeling really ambitious, activity partners could make each other's powers stronger, and relations of supervision/benefit could also be worked in.

    This is meant to be something of a brain storming session though, so don't get too caught up in making the intertype relations fit. (:

    I was thinking "crowd manipulation" for EIE. Like, if they're in a crowd of people they can get people to look at, listen to, and support (obey? ) him/her.

    Maybe, as a "natural enemy", SLI's could get people to go to sleep?

    One Ni type could see the past, another the future, etc. Fun stuff.

    ESE should have that ability.

    A Se type should have regeneration (like Claire from Heroes), and another should have super strength. LSE's could have super speed, perhaps? (The other Te dominant type doesn't want it. )

    Oh, there should be a mechanical genius, like Mr. T from the A team. SLI is an obvious choice for that... perhaps too obvious?

    Well, my first idea for EIE was that they could genocide people, but that seemed a little off base. And overpowered.

    LSIs should lose their tactical skills if someone shaves their mustache, like a samson sort of deal.

    Well, the LSI's tactical power is useless if they can't get anyone to enact them. The EIE enslaves the masses, the LSI guides them in battle. Perhaps the EIE has to be in the presence of the people (s)he's controlling though or the power would be too great?

    then you have to give INTj the power of confusion. Si is superstrength, not Se. Se could be superspeed or some kind of motion.

    If types had super powers then there should be super teams as well, like x-men:

    Alpha quadra types would be the good guys.
    Beta and gamma make good villains
    ILE "Searcher"
    Socionics: ENTp
    DCNH: Dominant --> perhaps Normalizing
    Enneagram: 7w6 "Enthusiast"
    MBTI: ENTJ "Field Marshall" or ENTP "Inventor"
    Astrological sign: Aquarius

    some of the other powers on the show are: mind reading, the ability to produce fire, the ability to heal others, the ability to produce electricity, running so fast you can't see the person, the ability to recover/heal from any wound yourself (so basically the person never dies), the ability to predict the future and paint the predictions, ETC.

    does anyone else watch it? I love it. It's so comic-book-esque.

    I was reading a book by a guy named Hiro the other day and my friend went into this discussion about the show, though.

    After having seen the last episode, I was quite confused about how Hiro somehow always seems to manage to fail at everything. He's a very entertaining character and everything, but he's not very good at anything besides being enthusiastic.

    If he's IEI, what type is his dad? I was thinking LSI (which wouldn't make much sense in terms of intertype relations), but perhaps that's just the Japanese businessman stereotype.

    I always figured that If I had a power it'd be invisibility or something along those lines. Psychic or the ability to see the past/future is probably a better one for IEI though.

    What about LSE for Hiro's father?

    Yeah, Hiro always has the best of intentions but somehow manages to screw things up. I guess traveling through time isn't as great as it seems like it might be. he's cute though. I find him very endearing.

    What kind of bothers me about Heroes these days is that the people with good hearts seem incompetent, and anyone who knows what they're doing have iffy moral compasses. Sometimes I wonder if Peter has a learning disability.

    I guess Mohinder sort of walks a fine line there, but overall that theme has slightly begun to bother me over time.

    fwiw, I'm really good at mindreading as defined above. Especially people I know fairly well. I think I've freaked people out in the past with this.

    well....yes. It's not over yet though. Let's see what the end up doing in the end. I hope the show will have an "end" like Lost.
