    Those are some interesting ideas, but if you're right, for someone who cares deeply about people, he sure does screw a lot of people over.

    Do you think so? Who?

    His sister is just a bit of a jealous whiner, so I don't count her. The Ferarri would have been insured and there was a problem there in that family and Cameron seemed liberated after the whole incident.

    Well, firstly of course, the principal, which is a no-brainer. Then Cameron, though he did feel liberated in the end, he was stressed and resistant almost the whole time and Ferris kept pushing him and pushing him to do things that could get him in a lot of trouble. It's debateable at the end whether Ferris was honestly wanting to take the blame or if he was just manipulating Cameron by getting on his good side. I see him manipulating the whole time, only acting caring if it's needed for people to go along with it, so I personally don't think he wanted that. He just wanted Cameron to stick on his side and help him with future plans. I would have felt like the sister did too, because Ferris is a bit of an asshole.

    Is this thread just for Bueller? None of the other characters? Cameron (in the Campbellian sense, the actual hero of the story to Bueller's mentor) or Sloan?
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    You may type them if you wish. I was just focusing on Bueller, though, since he seems to beone of MBTI's greatest mysteries, and many people say he is untypeable and can't exist in real life. I'm not sure if you can even make a character that can't be typed, unless they change their behaviour throughout.

    But sure, type whatever characters you want.

    But wasn't the principal a dick?

    This may be where we differ. I think Ferris was trying to actually help Cameron the whole time.

    It is possible that he could be someone that is impossible to type because nobody could exist like that in real life. I had the same thought.

    Not really. I mean Ferris is this guy who keeps acting out and breaking all the rules just for fun and being irresponsible and getting everybody to love him. He was just trying to keep some semblance of order. I can easily sympathise with the principal.

    If Ferris is an NP, I'd say ENTP over ENFP. Fe!

    One other thing to consider is this - Manipulation is influencing people for personal benefit. I think Ferris influenced Cameron for mutual benefit.

    Anyway, the whole movie is utterly ridiculous. That's why it's so entertaining. It's one of my all time favorite comedies.

    I liked Ferris a lot more than the principal or his sister though. I think it's what John Hughes had in mind. Otherwise, the movie would have been a flop.

    Yes, that is the intent. I'm just to much of a goodie goodie.

    man, sloan peterson was so hot. so hot!
    coolest girlfriend ever!
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
