    Default The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    The character who writes the letters in the new book "The perks of being a wall flower"

    What type do you think?

    I would think the anger and aggression issues might be a bit telling though I'm not entirely sure.

    Actually I believe I made a thread on this some time ago. I'd have to re-read the book to be certain so consider this simply a stab in the dark. I would guess Charlie (He's the main character, yes?) is EII. When I made the thread I was conflicted between IEI and EII, and yes opposing quadras are very different, but this is fiction so he tends to blur the lines of interpersonal possibility a bit.

    It seems when I made the thread I was leaning more towards IEI *chuckles*

    I think the idea of being a Wallflower is very Ni-esque, but i guess that since both EII and IEI have Ni as a 4D function it doesnt particularly help quantifying between the two. My inkling though is that he's an EII, but the writer himself IEI. Sam strikes me as very EP.

    Overall i loved the book.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    Ewww I never watched the movie but I hated Charlie in the book. I am a vulnerable person by nature but his character was just annoyingly vulnerable, whiny, innocent and .... ugh. How is he even IEI? I would think an IEI would be a little more transgressive and just cooler in general?

    His best friend comes off as pretty EIE. I guess he could be really IEE, doesn't make much sense though. The movie seemed VERY beta in its approuch and portrayl.

    He showed several points of aggression, for example punching the guys beating up his friend. It seemd like something the wallflower IEI might suddenly do if an emergency called upon him. He also seemd very victim like romantically, like when he got stuck in that relationship with that goth girl.
