    Default "You complete me." "You had me at hello."

    Jerry Maguire. I've only ever heard people make fun of these quotes, but these characters maybe have types? I think there are potential problems with typing fictional characters, but still I wonder what types would be most likely to say something like that.

    Anyone can say things that barely mean anything.

    Ok, yeah, obviously. I must not have asked the question directly enough, though. What type are those characters supposed to be?

    Luckily for you typing movie characters is the only form of socionics i bother with any more, and you are right it is very very flawed. However after watching the initial 10 minutes of this movie (haven't seen it before, downloaded and am watching it now) I am 100% certain that Tom Cruise's character is a beta/gamma extrovert. I would lean more towards Se leading than Te or Fe and more towards SEE than SLE. However, again the only thing I am certain of is beta/gamma extrovert. I will respond to this thread again once I finish the movie.

    To be clear which characters did you want typed? Just Tom Cruise's?

    For the record, and just to clarify for anyone who want's help typing movie characters, chick flick romance films almost always involve one person of the couple being Se leading (or at the very least Se ego). That's prolly why they've always been my favorite movies lol.

    Also don't try to focus on the details, well i suppose that goes for socionics in real life too. My point is that people can be so many different things in fiction (and non-ficiton) that you kinda just have to cross your eyes and get a general idea. Unless someone is a type exemplar, but those aren't as common as you'd think.

    Cuba Gooding Jr. being a mother fucking boss. That's what it's about.

    As much as I hate Maritsa, Jerry is Se leading and more likely SLE than SEE.

    Why you ask? His awkwardness in his own romantic life, how he can't get out of his head and put on a happy face at his own wedding, he has to ask Rod if they are friends before he can reprimand him for being an ass, in general his social life lacks the sort of smooth finish that would be present in an SEE's.

    By contrast you might look at his Ex Fiancée in the movie, she get's dumped at the start and by the end she's on the arm of someone even more powerful than Jerry that's not important the important part is the the movie sort of presents her as doing it without even breaking a sweat. Also feel free to ignore this paragraph seeing as she is in like 2 scenes for a total of 5 minutes and there is absolutely no way to type her with any sort of certainty. Rather she just seems SEEish.

    Dorothy is an beta/gamma ethical, I would be disinclined to say SEE because she is so thrown by her circumstances at certain points during the movie, however her character is muddled socionically speaking and I could just be missing it seeing as the only SEE i have any experience with is, while being a type exemplar, bat shit insane (and also a dude) so he's not useful for comparison purposes.

    For the most part, I just watch the ones with John Cusack.

    I don't like this film... For some reason, Tom Cruise entertains me when he's really maniacal/assholeish, but he's kind of tame in this.

    Tom Cruise is only ok in this, agreed. It's the kid and Cuba that make the movie.

    And I revoke your statement, you actually do not enjoy john Cusack, you enjoy Tom Hanks. See in the battle for best "everyman", you have to pick a side, and the right one is Tom Hanks.

    He is the better everyman, but Cusack's edgier (for lack of a better word). These movies need more of that. His neuroticism makes it more realistic to me too.
