    Default Skyfall



    Bond himself is not so interesting to type. Craig is probably LSE or something. (and D subtype anyway)

    But then we have the BAD GUY, Raoul Silva:




    Is it even possible to type him anything else than EIE (C subtype)??

    Then his mistress, the mysterious Sévérine. When she entered the plot I immidiately thought: "Ni-victim"




    I'll go for ILI. Some will probably suggest IEI, but I think ILI works better (H subtype). Note that Raol is supervising her, and how scared she was of him.

    And speaking of Ni, look how she stands on the ship, facing HER DESTINY.




    Then the cutest character, Eve Moneypenny. I'll say ILE, not just because she's cute, but she kindof seems ILE and her excellent driving skills in the opening scene indicates demonstrative Te.



    I was surprised to read that the actress is 36 years old. She looks like 22 in the film.

    Last but not least: M. I don't know about her... A woman in her position has to be logical type. Any suggestions? Some sort of NT...



    I forgot one:... Q. He is too easy: ILE. That's all.

    Hmm, I think I've seen, it was fine, seen it once. Don't have much more to say.

    I generally agree with your typings nowisthetime. Here are my typings that I'll pull out of the rabbit's hat that are purely guesses:

    Bond: SLI
    Raoul Silva: EIE
    Severine: IEI
    Moneypenny: IEE
    M: LSI
    Q: ILE

    Yeah, I totally understand LSI for M. I was thinking LII...

    I have a hard time seeing Bond as Si base. I would go for LSE. But he doesn't really HAVE a type.
    Severine seems sort of borderline IEI-ILI. Maybe the actress is IEI?
    Moneypenny could also be IEE, but I think the bond girl in Casino Royale was a better example of IEE:

    Activation?

    Yeah, LSI makes more sense to me as the decisions she makes in the movie and the consequences that arise from them seem to be PoLR based. I wouldn't rule out LSE for James Bond, but his demeanor and behavior strikes me as being irrational over rational as a whole and I would type him as SLE as another possibility other than SLI. Yup, Moneypenny and Vesper could both possibly be IEE.

    The opening credits with the music is mindblowing. Best intro ever. I like how the style of the intro contrasts with the overall of the movie.

    I like your typings. I can see Moneypenny and Bond as duals. It is a little hard to see Silva as the dual of M. But I guess any type can be incredibly creepy. I was disappointed in M for lack of foresight and inventiveness. I liked Q - is he brash enough to be an ILE ? (Seems like there is an underlying gentleness to him.)

    What about Ralph Fiennes' character?

    Loved the opening music and credits as well.

    Thanks, I was thinking it might be odd as well, but Silva is a tough character to type and SLE has floated around as a possibility for me. ILEs can be gentle as well and perhaps he is a Ne-ILE thus explaining his lighthearted nature. Gareth Mallory, I'm going to go with being a ego on a whim and type him as LIE with a possibility of being LSE.

    Every time I see the name of this movie I am reminded of my old username.

    Oh well OK. I was disappointed with this film. The baddie Raoul was fantastic though, my favorite kind of baddie. And i enjoyed his banter with Bond.

    It's just, hmmm... there were missed opportunities ... the plot after a point was lackluster...the ending did not deliver.

    Q might have turned up at the end to kill Raoul when all hope seemed lost, he had the technology to trace them. He could have been the child of Raoul and Sévérine and sought to avenge her death. His whole reasoning for entering the service to track down Raoul and save his mother.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    I instantly liked the gamekeeper and thought he was going to save M and be the joy of her Scottish retirement. So I was disappointed as well. The whole point of the end of the movie seemed to be to blow up an awesome old house and car. I thought the end of the movie was going to be the triumph of the crafty old people over the upstarts with all of their technology and firepower. Hmmm.

    LOL at me sounding so bitter about the end of a James Bond movie.

    I liked that they played with nostalgia so much. It could have gone wrong but they did it well. All this about age, time, getting older, going back in time. The whole movie also commented itself and the history of Bond movies. And kindof cool that M died in the end and Bond held her in his arms, almost like a lover. These sort of things made it feel like a deeper Bond movie, more emotionally complex.
