    I made a thread on this. It went no where. Just like everyone of my other threads. FML.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Max is without a doubt INFP. He could be nothing else.
    We're quite a breed .
    The movie was so painful to watch at certain parts. The way he interacted with his mother was almost identical to the way my mother and I got along. Sometimes I'd make her laugh with my weird quirks and other times she couldn't understand what was wrong with me and remind me to calm down. Rocky relationship thhat but still pretty strong at the same time. Weird. You'd think she'd understand me more since she's Fi-dom, too (ISFP). But whatever.
    Another thing that just killed me was Max's vulnerability.
    I felt all of his pain. I understood it all so well.
    I felt like I was re-visiting my childhood or something.
    Great memories and some pretty tragic ones ()

    Anyway, although I (unfortunately) related to the movie well I loved it.
    And like the idiot that I am, I actually cried at the end.
    Yep.
    I cried.
    And my ESTP friend took a picture for laughs. (juuuuust great!)
    Uh did anyone else catch the symbolism?
    My ESFJ didn't like the movie. She thought the ending was bad because Carol didn't get a chance to apologize to Max, but I don't think any other ending could have worked.
    ...
    I have the feeling that I'm not going to be understood.
    So, I'll go grab a shield or just crawl back into my cave and brood some more.
    [Question: Can someone simply "brood" or must they be "brooding"?]

    EDIT: "I have a feeling I'm not going to be understood" See Below.

    INFP? hmm...I won't disagree in the context that the value of any type of art is in the eye of the beholder. That's the beauty of it.

    However, I distinctly saw strong ISTP elements as well.

    1. The snowball fight and having built his fortress.
    2. Crossing a raging sea and exploring an island on his own.
    3. Considering the practical needs of the "Wild Things" and building things.
    4. Who else but an ISTP would run head first into the side of something to see if it "gave?"
    5. Showing the "Wild Thing" how the kid felt vs. saying by making a heart shape and an initial out of the model remnants.
    6. Going home and moving on from the "island" experience, by being fully present in the existing moment vs. emoting and/or retrospecting.

    I'd say there's something in the movie that almost every type can identify with.

    Well of course anyone could relate to it!
    That's kinda beside the point I was making.
    The things you mention you can relate to are things that I, too, can relate to.
    Does that make me an ISTP?
    Nope.
    But it could be linked to the functions we have in common: the introversion and perceiving function. Or not.
    Who knows?
    I still think he's INFP.

    No but really, I feel your pain. I hate when nobody responds.
