    The Exorcist is definitely one of the best. I assume you're watching the original Halloween? The newer one contains more gore, but it's also deeper psychologically with more character development.

    I hate suspense... Can't stand it. Just awful.

    And I think the desire to be afraid thing, at least for me, has a certain aspect of bravado. For instance, I sat all the way through The Exorcist because neither of my parents had, so I saw it as a challenge (as Mathew Z said, "Everything's a challenge when you've got Te"). Also that movie is easily one of the most disturbing I've ever seen. Can't be beat.
    I had never thought about it in that way before, but you're right, there's definitely an aspect of bravado there. In fact, just recently I've been hearing everyone talk about the movie "Paranormal Activity" and how it was so scary that they couldn't sleep at night or how they backed out at the last second because they were afraid to watch it. And after hearing that, I've added it to my the list of movies I must watch by the end of the year. I'm excited!

    Yeah, The Exorcist is definitely the best on the list. I can't wait! We're watching the original version of Halloween. I don't think I've seen the newer one though, but maybe I should based on your comment!

    Speaking of remakes, I watched the newest Friday the 13th over the summer and it...was not good.

    Yeah, many remakes are crap. Halloween is the best one I've ever seen. In fact it won an award for best remake in 2008. I think it's because it's more of a prequel than a remake. It's the same concept, but in many ways a new movie.

    I know of an INFJ who's SO is TOTALLY into slasher films. Seedy. This guy's job is to review these sorts of movies.

    She was looking for a way out of her relationship (relationsh*t) and took interest in another man. I don't blame her. What a horror all by itself. I mean, INFJs having unbridled imagination..these torturous, gruesome movies can't be pleasant to INFJs let alone other F types.

    Her SO is heavily STJ.

    I bet being in her house they share feels creepy to her all the time. The number of movies he reviews..it must feel on edge in there.

    Uh...I'm an NFP and my ex is an SFP and he's a horror collector. Like Poppy said, I think F's might be more inclined to have a cathartic experience from watching certain types of horror.

    You bet being in their house feels creepy all of the time? Why? Does he bring home bodies and store them in the basement?

    I dunno. My ex likes really artsy horror and old horror, some of the stuff he's into is really high brow, and other stuff is cheesy, fun exploitation stuff from the 70's and 80's. Sure, some of its disturbing, but ...

    Does he especially like torture porn or something? Where is your judgement of this scenario stemming from? Am I missing something? From what you've said, the guy just reviews horror movies.

    I absolutely love horror movies. It's not a type-related thing, and the same is true for a lot of other 'stereotypes' that are thrown around here.

    I mostly love the kind of horror movies involving suspense, which I crave for (in movies, not in real life).

    Favorite horror movies:

    The Shining
    Nightmare on Elm Street
    Friday the 13th
    Dawn of the Dead
    Halloween

    That kind of thing. This is not related to type or cognitive function, in my opinion.

    What you are missing is that I am offering you some knowledge by adding to your thread that type is related from the standpoint of which types do or don't like horror movies.

    The reason is, horror movies present a conflict of interest, values and need for harmony. All three of these qualities is inherent to INFJs.

    So, therefore, INFJs, by process of elimination, are not generally included in groups of types who like horror movies.

    I won't charge you for the extra entry to your thread

    I'm willing to bet that there are plenty of INFJs who are into horror movies. Probably all 4w5's

    See there^..if this were true, which, who knows..(btw let's see some rationale for this)..would show that an enneagram or two type of INFJ may be into that sort of thing.

    So again, predominantly, INFJs find horror films unpleasant as INFJs can't tolerate conflict well.
