    Default The Wolf of Wallstreet (Jordan Belfort)

    I was watching this movie and couldn't a thread on it.

    Jordan Belfort aka The Wolf of Wallstreet is a SEE imo. He has tremendous charisma and can use tons of ethical pressure to get what he wants. With his share of Steve Madden, he could have been a billionaire right now. What happened? PoLR Ti, and a reluctance to follow its rules, laws, and procedures.

    The FBI agent could be an LSI in this story.

    The Swiss banker seems like a LIE who fucks Jordan over in the end.

    Jonah Hill's character seems like he could be an ILE or LIE.

    Margot Robbie's character is ESE.
    The Barnum or Forer effect is the tendency for people to judge that general, universally valid statements about personality are actually specific descriptions of their own personalities. A "universally valid" statement is one that is true of everyone—or, more likely, nearly everyone. It is not known why people tend to make such misjudgments, but the effect has been experimentally reproduced.

    The psychologist Paul Meehl named this fallacy "the P.T. Barnum effect" because Barnum built his circus and dime museum on the principle of having something for everyone. It is also called "the Forer effect" after its discoverer, the psychologist Bertram R. Forer, who modestly dubbed it "the fallacy of personal validation".

    I saw that movie before. I liked it. I think the lead character might have been SLE and not SEE (I think he had 4D Te to be so good at business and not 2D Te) Plus I think he was more outwardly jerky and SEEs seem more genuinely sensitive than that. SEEs are really more emo-ish even if they are male and he wasn't really emo at all.

    I think most SLEs don't really fully capitalize their Te in a way that he did or something.

    I think with IEI and our Fi it's the same thing- I think we skyrocket to power focusing on it. Although it's not valued functions so might be hard to do for most SLEs/IEIs.

    The asshole nerdy friend- I didn't like him, I liked when he sort of got his comeuppance. He was a super jerky and ugly - Idk probably Unhealthy ILE or ILI. He was funny though.

    FBI agents get more pissed if you break Fi rules not Ti rules I think. I think most 'lawful rules' are kinda dosed with Te/Fi but YMMV. That guy could still be LSI though- not uncommon for Betas to hold other Betas accountible lol.
