    Alpha (hobbits) = +Si = positive feelings of comfort. They cannot effectively realize their potential if their lifestyle is full of hardships.

Their groups are always comfortable, relaxed as if at home, and never rough or eccentric.

    Delta (elves) = -Si = minmization of discomfort. They value good working conditions and are reluctant to change their routines. This element excludes harmful influences from external environment. This quadra cannot work during emergencies. They highly value convenience, comfort at their workplace, and good coordination at work.

    Duh!

    for those just chirping in we have decided that:

    SI applies to both ELVES AND HOBBITS

    and OR

    ELVES ARE DEFINATELY SI no matter what hobbits are, even if they are SE.

    SO what chars in LOTR or THE HOBBIT ARE se?

    let me guess orcs?

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    Yes, dwarves and orcs and dragons, because Tolkien was obviously an Se polr.

This thread in itself is a fun little thread made with the intention of enjoyment more than seriousness. You've started resorting to indirect insults to people you don't know so I'm not currently going to continue this conversation as it was not intended.
    i can't tell if this is serious or not either way i was joking too...its pretty obvious tbh

    but either way now that i've had to explain myself this isn't fun anymore. peace thread.

    I still think it's possible a few of the elves might be SE...I refuse to believe a few of them aren't SE...and they are all SI.

    Galadriel is Se > Si.

    I agree, Garrot. I think most races have more than one, maybe even several, dominant function preferences, you just have to look hard enough.

    There are extraverted elves and introverted elves and J elves and P elves. But all elves are NFs.

    And hobbits are S's but otherwise come in all varieties. Merry and Pippin are not SJs.

    And Gandalf is an INTJ, natch.

    I hope this clears things up.

    What in the hell did I stumble into?

    Also, I was pretty sure Frodo Baggins was an INFJ.

    Default TLDR - Elves: Se; Hobbits: Si

    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.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth
