    Thought it'd be useful.

    I think he's some sort of Gamma Introvert. The entire point of Oldboy was about how even the most mundane of human interactions can have unforseen, unknowable consequences (Ni), possibly causing someone enough internal pain (Fi) that they may someday retaliate (Se).

    I don't like this therefore opposing quadra

    What about Oldboy is Fe? The whole plot turns on the axis of a private wound that the antagonist suffered, and how he carried inside of him for decades. Betas are much more "in the moment" with their emotions.

    Also, I just saw Stoker the other day. Stars Mia Wasikowska (EII), Nicole Kidman (ESI), written by Wentworth Miller (LIE). If Chan Wook is Fe valuing, he sure knows how to surround himself with the wrong people...

    well he could be gamma as well, i don't necessarily disagree. i wouldn't say betas are more within the moment but that they're permissive towards other people "directing" or redirecting the collective mood and/or their emotional states by expressing said emotion, whereas Fi types are resistant towards it and tend to go off of closeness and past exchanges to guess where they're at emotionally. it's the same thing, done two different ways. i wouldn't postulate that that means betas can't or don't hold grudges (esp IEIs).

    obvious Se/Ni valuing, though. (Oldboy, I mean)

    this description could very well be Beta, it doesn't hold. Or are you kind of trying to establish an avant-garde dichotomy where Fi is internal pain and Fe only martin luther king jr or malcolm x?

    Fi is felt in relation to other people, I believe.

    + Fi - good relations, love, friendship, affection, attraction, warmth in relations, sociability, close psychological distance, goodness, compassion;
    − Fi - poor relations, hatred, animosity, antipathy, repulsion, indifference in relations, alienation, unsociability, remote psychological distance, wickedness, mercilessness;

    + Fe - positive emotions, joy, merriment, emotional elation, excitement, a smile, laughter, enthusiasm, optimism, good mood, the experience of happiness;
    − Fe - negative emotions, grief, sorrow, sadness, emotional recession, depression, crying, tears, frustration, pessimism, poor mood, the experience of unhappiness;

    His line of argument was that someone experiencing "a wound" and living for more than 5 minutes with some sort of pain (albeit suppressed/ repressed) that could compel them to get even after some time is Quadra-related and specifically Fi. But even if he really wanted to associate such a universal human experience with Quadras, I would recommend him to watch movies in Eastwood's "Unforgiven" series.

    Besides he hasn't been able to answer why a person fighting for human rights (specifically against racism and oppression) on a broad social level, not only on a personal one is a narcissist and mere "drama". I suppose he got the Nobel Prize for having a cult of personality only. Such a thing can only be uttered by a Fi polr who is striving to understand people according to far-fetched personal dichotomies that can hardly apply to that arena. It's not external manifestations of emotions that he doesn't understand or appreciate, it's intrinsic value (stuff like human dignity etc.).

    You're so right
    We can't put everything into quadras.

    "I believe there are more films that involve love and forgiveness than violence, but they often seem fake and are almost embarrassing to watch."

    "I guess I probably make violent films partly because I can't express my anger in my real life very well."

    "When you first hear Mozart's music, your first impression is that it's very alive, but if you peel away the layers, you can hear sorrow and sadness behind it, and that's what I try to be: multi-layered."

    "All of the characters in my films, they share one commonality. It doesn't matter whether they are good or bad, it doesn't matter whether they are smart or stupid, these characters all take responsibility for their own behavior. I'm much the same."

    "I believe 'love' is very nice to hear, but it's used so much that it's come to a point where it's almost meaningless."

    "When we are confronted with extreme situations, we forget about moral issues; we simply act and must then accept the consequences."

    "When I was going through puberty, I had all these feelings of being unstable through those years, and being uncontrollably drawn to things of beauty and things that are bad."

    "If you would ask me what my ideal process is, I would say, long pre-production, long production and long post-production."

    "Certain subjects may no longer be taboo in cinema. But there are ways to treat them that still create shock."

    "Living without hate for people is almost impossible."

    "In my opinion, all relationships between people have some sort of violence, and it is central."

    "The point of revenge is not in the completion but in the process."

    "A priest encounters temptation every day, and some of that desire is very natural."

    "I have always meticulously storyboarded my films from beginning to end."

    This would make Woo-jin, the villian of Oldboy, Fi-Valuing, at least.

    I find someone can value one thing, and exhibit something entirely different for sake of expediency.

    It's easy to mistake what Obama does for Fe, but it's all Fi.

    i didn't say Obama was ENFj. I just was talking about his cult of personality.

    I have no clue what type the man is. If you have a suggestion, I'd like to hear it.

    Oh, I know you didn't. I was just carrying on from values versus presentation.
    I have heard ESI for Obama. I haven't tried to type him before, myself.

    I think values vs. presentation is somewhat different when you're talking about a fictional character? Have you actually seen Oldboy, or is this conversation just theoretical?

    Also, Obama, seems, I dunno, kind of ineffectual at pushing his ideas through to be Se Ego. And he also seems to be lacking in strong convictions to be Fi. He's very "lead from behind". But I did read in an LIE-ESI duality thing that said ESIs "bring up the rear guard"...he doesn't seem Fe either...Idk, I'm not going to try and seriously type him.

    It depends if the character was designed to be such a way, and not just inconsistently flipping between valuing one thing and then another (and that happens a lot). I'm thinking a manipulative character might have an agenda informed by a valuing of a certain information element, but still use a non-valued information element to aid it pragmatically. I haven't seen Oldboy, so this is pure speculation.

    I don't blame you. I'm remembering now that he was ENFJ is MBTI, but then, everyone who ever made a half decent speech anywhere was typed so. Oh, that and INFJ, a couple of times.
    How would you expect an Se-creative to push their ideas through in such an environment?

    well, in Oldboy, a relationship is calcified between two people at a young age. The movie mostly chronicles how one punishes the other over a span of years. The torturer manages to provoke some pretty exuberant emotional reactions out of his victim over the course of the film, but it seems secondary to the relational bond of hatred.

    I could be wrong, It could be that he seeks the emotional expressions and the hatred is secondary. But that's just my interpretation. It wasn't just, as Rosewood said, because "being angry" is Gamma or something. I don't really understand what he/she was saying, tbh. When I'm watching a movie, I'm not like "This is so Ti!" It's just, when I'm on the socionics forum, I use the lingo.

    Well, like for instance, one of the things Obama ran on was that he was going to pull the troops out. To me, it seems as though Se Egos are masters of expansion and contraction of control over space. If he really wanted to contract quickly, he could. Instead, he followed a timetable set in place by someone else.

    Also, he seems "Judicious", or at the very least, more judicious than a Se Type. If a Se type said, "This is the red line, don't cross or we'll shoot" I doubt you would catch them backpedaling and making rhetorical excuses.

    That's another reason why typing characters is hard. It's all in the interpretation.#
    It depends on whether we typed based on motivations or on behaviours.

    That's so true. Conflict avoidant or what?

    that's what *you* sound to me in your efforts to be a ILI or a Gamma or whatever.
