    Default Antigone

    For all our forum members who enjoy Greek tragedy.

    Antigone: ESFp
    Ismene: INTp
    Creon: ISTj
    Sentry: Alpha SF
    Haemon: ENTp
    Tiresias: INFj?
    Leader: who knows

    The class discussion of this was uncanny: hitting on Ismene's foresight, Antigone's rashness, and how they are foils ("almost exact opposites") of each other--among many other points, including:

    -the Sentry's meandering descriptions
    -Creon's hubris, his delusion of absolute power
    -Haemon urging Creon to be (R)easonable, and Creon's overreaction to his gentle criticism

    The more talented the writer is, the more consistent and realistic the characters will be. Overall this play is an excellent study of Socionics, especially with regard to the relationship of personality to tragic flaws. (Our class also determined that Hamlet's two biggest weaknesses were his excessive emotionality (Fe) and his lack of decisiveness (Se). Really cool stuff. )

    Thanks for the input. Tiresias does seem a little too sober to be an ENFj now that I think about it.

    My immediate impressions:
    Antigone - LSI
    Ismene - IEI
    Creon - LSI
    Haimon - IEE
    Sentry - ESE
