    Default The Walking Dead

    You know what it is...



    Rick -- ISTJ?
    Shane -- ISTP?
    Lori
    Andrea
    Glenn
    Carl
    Daryl
    Hershel
    Carol
    T-Dog

    That's all I got.

    I could have sworn there was another thread, but there's some typings in this one. Ironically I just woke up from a freaky zombie dream. It was kind of annoying because I had a zombie pinned and I kept yelling for someone else to come over and bash its brains out but no one would, so I had to keep elbowing it in the back of its head until it looked like a hamburger pizza. Of course, by then about 30 zombies busted open the door to the gate and we were all pretty much doomed.

    My present guesses:

    Rick Te-SLI
    Shane Se-SLE
    Andrea Se-SEE
    Dale Fi-EII
    Daryl Si-SLI
    Lori ILE?
    Maggie Fi-SEE
    T-Dog ???
    Glenn ILI?
    Herschel Fi-valuing

    I liked Rick's solution at the end of the last episode. Very practical. Hopefully everyone but Maggie and Andrea die before the season ends and they spend the last few episodes lezzing out on a beach after the zombies have all rotted away.

    It seems highly misleading to say that Rick is SLI. He's probably untypable, given that the actor who is playing him is intentionally playing him as an honorable and very capable person.

    It's a problem then if the actor is exemplifying these qualities as he appreciates them through his own type, especially if Andrew Lincoln is an Fi type (I think he is). That will skew everything and then one type won't describe this character that well. It might be better to talk about his character's characteristics with type as an afterthought.

    The other typings seem fine to me, except maybe Glenn, because his character is kind of underplayed and dumb, imo; but that makes it moot. He's playing a naive teenager, not much else, and not much higher-order intelligence there in his role.

    I'm beginning to wonder if we aren't going to receive confirmation of my conjecture that zombification of the dead occurs in this series not via blood or saliva, but by intention. I've noted that the various characters have punched zombies in the teeth barehanded and rummaged through their guts with too-short gloves, not to mention sprayed themselves with gore and brains while bashing, stabbing, and hacking undead heads. All without becoming obviously infected. So this led me to the transmission-via-intention hypothesis. One more episode this season to potentially find out.

    Intention to what? Become a zombie?

    I just figured it must be some kind of toxoplasmosis like parasite that maybe someone got from cleaning out a litter box or something, so when you die the parasite is all festering in your brain stem reactivating stuff only instead of being those frozen ants on leafs that goats eat you become a shuffling bite happy freak that shares the parasitic love.

    The new episode lends some support to that idea, too.

    I have so many questions after last night's episode...

     
    Have we seen anybody die of something other than being torn apart by zombies or something that would kill even a zombie before last night's episode? I can't remember the first season too well. I recall the group leaving that guy on the side of the road after getting a smaller bite, but he could have contracted some other kind of infection that was making him sick. I'm sure zombie mouths aren't too clean. So... everybody could have been turning after dying (without even being bit) this whole time, and we just never knew? Is this what the CDC guy told Rick? Does the zombie "virus" not even kill you? I'm also wondering if there's a supernatural component here. When Shane was having those flashes before turning, was he joining some kind of zombie hivemind?

    Why are you giving away spoilers when not everyone has seen the show? This is why I speak only vaguely about the plot.

    I thought it was what you guys were talking about, so I wanted to pose some additional discussion. I will put a spoiler tag around it, or something.

    I was only talking about my conjectures into the nature and transference of TWD's zombification cooties, not so much about events in the last episode. The idea of infection-via-intentionality is a semi-facetious metaphysical explanation that occurred to me a few months ago after musing over incidents from several episodes. Though I forget which source he relied upon, nil informs me that there is indeed some sort of pathogen at work. I imagine wikis and fansites exist that describe much of the background in detail as well as the (comic)book the show is adapted from.

    I read this before I watched the episode .
    That was by far my favorite one yet.

    Carl is transitioning into a very annoying character... I liked him when he was a sweet, quiet kid.
    I think Rick and Shane both stink as leaders-- they would've been better off compromising on all of their decisions, where Rick didn't have to be so ethical and Shane didn't have to be so impulsive about everything. Too bad that's all over with now.


    btw I had NO idea the actor playing Rick was British. I'm a little disappointed- I like his American accent so much better. god, he looks even more like a wimp now.

    Also
     
    I'd just go out on a limb and guess it's parasitic and that zombie bites are a form of transmission, but a flawed one. There apparently would have to be another vector to acquire the parasite, since the unbitten go all zombified, maybe drinking water or something, but it's also apparently world wide, so the pandemic nature of it seems strange. Maybe bites do transmit the parasite but they also tend to sicken the person and kill them due to septic shock, since the reactivation of the infected only seems to re-up very few body systems [brain stem and neuromuscular operation] without need for operating the circulatory, respiratory, and immune systems. General necrosis of tissues ensues and, well, who knows what microorganisms are nesting in those things. From a symbiotic perspective, it would make more sense for the parasite to transmit some other way more conducive to the health of their host, but I guess once you've hit zombie stage, it just needs to get out before the remnants of its husk gets all desicated. Not sure about the eating people part though. I can't imagine zombies poop.

    Bump.
    Mostly agree with the typings ITT, plus minus a few additions:

    Dale: Ne-ENFp
    Daryl: Ni-INTp
    Lori: Goddamn she's annoying.
    Maggie: Fi-ESFp
    Glenn: Fe-INFp
    Herschel: Fi-INFj

    Allegedly they're pulling out the stops for season 3 and it'll be as hardcore as the comicbook, whatever the fuck that means (haven't read it).

    Someone better lose an arm and get it replaced with a fire axe or something then. I'm kind of bored with the show, but that's probably because all the characters suck.

    Well, no, they didn't. I stopped watching after the second half of season 3 resumed. Fuck this show.

    From my recollection the green area was larger, but the sentiment is respectable.

    OK.

    A) Yaarroslav quoted me. and I, sir, am honored. (I've never read any of your posts, beyond this one that you quoted me, but I've heard about you).

    B) HOW can you hate Maggie and Glen?

    C) I think the show is still great. I'm easy to please though- ( I watch Girls, though that show really is going downhill)

    D) Andrea should be killed off pronto. The governor should be slaughtered.

    WHO'S WITH ME?

    The second half of the third season is starting to get interesting after the lackluster second season. I'm not sure what else they could do after the third season though to keep it interesting. It's a decent show, but Breaking Bad is far superior to it overall imo.

    I initially thought she was ILI too at one point, but now I'm leaning towards SLI though. The Walking Dead season finale was pretty epic btw imo.

    Yeah, maybe that makes more sense. What do you think about Daryl?

    I've seen Daryl typed as Si-SLI before and I agree with that typing. It's likely that type fits him more then Michonne.

    the new season is really epic with all the diverging plot lines.

    Has anyone played the games by any chance? It might be impossible to type the protagonists, but I believe they have certain characteristics no matter what your dialogue choices are.

    Kenny - SLE
    Clem - IxI? IP temperment, Ni/Se valuing
    Lee - ESI?
