    Sometimes we're rambly ambly through the shambly side streets. At times it's easier to take the bus. Myself, I'm more of a Lyft girl, but that's just code for "too broke for Uber".

    But to speak more to the point, I find elves pretentious and hobbits too earnest--they're both equally distasteful in their own precious ways. What I remember of the books, elvish society was elevated and highly structured. Excessive regard for manners and culture typically belies a ruthlessness in core culture. The seemingly mindless observation of social ritual casts a sanitizing lull over the beastliness of the highborn's true nature. While high culture and deep tradition have a naive association with Si, if you buy into this theory of the purpose of such things, then social ritual is in reality fundamentally driven by the tactile and now-oriented nature of Se.

    Hobbits, otoh, are creatures of comfort. They live in cozy burrows. They don't make a fuss. They are conservative in their imaginations unless otherwise compelled. This is because the Hobbits remember, and new information must be evaluated against these recollections. They're riding on that Si tip, in other words. You can make the argument that Tolkien choose Hobbits as his protagonist rather than any other race, because of the way that their descriptions would embody a primarily British audience's notion of the "known". The best fantasy leverages the hero's journey such that the audience can experience their own inner landscape writ epic by dent of the extraordinary stakes of a quest undertaken by one not so different than themselves. Fantasy heroes are literatures' blank slates and basic bitches for a reason. If you can't even Mary Sue, then the narrative's failed at its most basic task.
    Yeah...I totally agree.

    Some of the elves in the books seem cold as ice...reminds me of that song, "you're as cold as ice, and willing to sacrifice..."

    Anyways...that begs the question. Were some of the elves perhaps TE and SE, as those two tend to be side to side...maybe some of the elves were even ESTJ - TE + SI....maybe they were more TE than F...they were deifnately J though.

    As for the little Remingtons or fur balls, hobbits, I think I would still but those bunglars as S's and P's but who knows. I could see a few of them shy-grabs, hobbits, as being ISTP types who were just really quiet like and blinked in the darkness. Hobbits remind me of all those eyes in those cartoons of the jungle where the jaguars were blinking in the background but you couldn't see their bodies, only the white of their eyes.

    They are kind of like Ewoks too.

    You're kinda bossy for an elf.

    Also, as an elf, you're supposed to be all about respecting our identity choices and making us feel welcome and serving us lembas and honey cakes and playing us melancholy lays on your trusty lute.

    If that doesn't suit you, feel free to hightail it out of Middle Earth and go work for fucking Santa.

    Cool, so let's see your sources. You portray yourself as an expert and namedrop Jung, yet since you can't be bothered to back up any of your expertise on the subject and have reacted to counterarguments with insults rather than fact-based arguments, I see no alternative than to call BULLSHIT.

    Unfortunately, I hadn't yet read through the entire thread when I quoted his post.

    I now realize how ridiculously irreverent this thread is and it is F'ING HILARIOUS.

    Well only change our avatars back soon. For now let's focus on the thread which is about hobbits and se or si. Which one?
