    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Cid as ISTJ isn't a bad idea; Shera as his beneficiary could make sense.

    Tifa seems like an introvert, IMO. Gamma SF and IEI are the only types I can see for her. I used to think SEI, but she's not really Alpha.

    The thing about Cloud as ISTP is, he's Fe crazy. His whole delusion is all about how other people see him, feeling rejected and unliked by others, seeking status by position in a hierarchy that proves his talents and establishes him as unique and elite, not to mention the lies he's told to be seen as better than he has been lead to see himself. Claaassssic Se valuing, Fe seeking Enneagram 3.

    You really think Tseng and Aeris were conflictors?

    Scarlet as SLE makes sense.

    Scarlet is like my favorite final fantasy 7 character. I love her bitchiness + her narcissistic red dress. She reminds me of Glory on Buffy too, another one of my favorite villains.

    Aw Georgie, I'd love to play final fantasy 7 with you while having deep conversations about the world. <3

    Btw, I would put Cloud as ISTj not SLE. Cloud was clearly introverted. I mean I guess I can see an SLE-Ti being a classical introvert but ISTj makes better sense to me. And that would make him duals with Aeris if you have her as enfj.

    I like Tifa as IEI. All three of them feel like Betas, I remember feeling SOOO emotionally close to them when I was 14 years old. *love*

    Cait Sith feels like some sort of alpha to me. ENTp with Fi polr? Aw omg Yuffie as ESFp is ADORABLE. I agree!

    ILE is very plausible for Reed/Cait Sith.

    LSI-Ti could work for Cloud.

    idk though, Cloud and Tifa seem like duals; Aeris was just a brief fantasy, Activity infatuation, but Tifa holds out for them the whole while and they end up together because they are an easy pairing and have always seen things from the same angle, plus the whole childhood love thing.

    Hmm yeah. I think I'd be more devastated if Tifa died. Aeris was like a Mary Sue too much.

    I also thought it was a little lame that they resurrected her for that Kingdom Hearts game. But I revived Isha after I killed her so who am I to talk? Hindsight is 20/20 and I realized I shouldn't have done that.

    Indeed. She had to die. And Tifa is so integral, she's the subtle underline to the whole storyline, the constant observer; killing her would be crass and myopic.

    Lmao. I tried so hard to save Aeris, looked up and tried every method online, including leveling to 99 before meeting the Midgar Zolom on Disc 1. THAT fucking sucked

    haha wow. the midgar zolom I remember that creature. wowwww. ahh so many nostalgic memories.

    My favorite boss was probably the gi nattak. I remember creating a screen name that was similar to that boss when I was 14. Something about me is like really attracted to the Undead. Like the whole concept of demons and zombies. Perhaps you can psychoanalyze me and tell me why.

    He went with Aeris as a bodyguard simply because he wanted to and he helped destroy the Mako Reactors because he wanted to get paid, even though it pissed Barrett off. I know later on in the game when his identity is called into question, he doubts who he is and what he can do, but when this happens it isn't because he is unliked or because he cared whether people rejected him or not, or whether people saw him as having a high status, but because he wanted to like himself by seeing what amazing talent and expertise he is capable of.
    No I can't agree. You're making him sound to be like this manly bad-ass with no feelings at all and this perfect Gary Stu (male version of Mary Sue).

    Don't you remember the scene late in the game, that flashback when he was bullied by other boys by not being very athletic? (or maybe it was something else i can't remember exactly but he was definitely bullied as a child.) That's what motivated him to become stronger....but he still couldn't get in SOLDIER. And I remember him talking about how bad he felt for letting everybody down, so he had to lie to cover up his tracks.

    He raised the bar for himself on a personal level, and maybe a bit for Tifa because he wanted to impress her, but not anyone else.
    Dude, he lied to EVERYBODY that he made it to SOLDIER when he did not. Cloud was the typical introverted boy that plays video games really that's why he was a popular character and a lot of people related to him. He was strong but he still couldn't measure up to the jocks. So many gamer boys feel that way that's why he was so popular. =p

    Dude, seriously? I don't remember him getting bullied for not being athletic, lol. When did this happen?

    Cloud is the archetypal example of the part of us that wants so badly to be liked or respected or recognized in some way. He was a loner who the other kids teased, so he grew up wanting to be everything they couldn't, and he most likely fixated on Sephiroth because the guy was a huge hero, public figure, etc. Everyone looked up to and admired Sephiroth, and Cloud, being insignificant and lonely, thought in the most primitively rational part of his brain that being like Sephiroth would make people and, most important of all, Tifa like and admire him.

    EIE isn't terrible for Rufus but i think LIE is better: he's pragmatic, materialistic, shrewd, opportunistic, and isn't concerned with high ideals or anything "unrealistic". he's always evaluating the usefulness and benefit of people's actions - more like a Te type. he's like a biting, ruthless variant of a LIE. however i believe he is humbled a bit after his near-death experience in FFVII, and as a result adopts more of a sense of responsibility to society, which i think is also LIE-like. (he is less ruthless in Advent Children than he was in FFVII and Before Crisis.)

    FFVII quotes

    "People are ignorant. They'll feel better as long as someone is punished."
    ...I'll let you here my new appointment speech. Old man tried to control the world with money. It seems to have been working.The population thought that Shinra would protect them. Work at Shinra, get your pay. If a terrorist attacks, the Shinra will help you. It looks perfect on the outside. But I do things differently. I control the world with fear. It takes too much to do it like my old man. A little fear will control the minds of common people. There's no reason to waste money on them."
    "It is that kind of dullness that makes you a second-rate scientist."

    Before Crisis quotes

    "Send out the army, President. The Turks will only take up precious time and labour. The Ancient won’t be able to put up much of a resistance if she’s got a bullet in her, will she?"
    "Hmph. The time that’s being wasted with all these unnecessary precautions cancels out any good that might come from it."
    "Crowning glory? Where’s the merit in sending some rocket up into space? All of this pomp with the air show and this ceremony are a waste."
    "I don’t care about this outer space stuff. My interests lie firmly on the ground. Our company should be there too."
    "What? So you would betray me? I'll cut off your financial support."
    Advent Children

    "I acknowledge that Shinra owes the planet a lot. It goes without saying that my company and I put the world in the sorry state it's in. Therefore, it's our responsibility to set things right.."

    Hmmm...interesting, glam. LIE-Ni isn't a bad choice at all, actually.
