    Default What type is this Braveheart character?

    I love him! <3333 Yes, he's crazy and a bit bizarre, but he protects Wallace and actually has a really deep core. ;D

    Crazy ESFP, I think (no, that's not necessarily an ENFP imo ).

    I don't know about the ESFP point.

    Stephen 'wears' that sort of thing as a disguise, but it's just a persona.
    The extroverted emo craziness is just a ruse, meant to throw people off so he preserves maximum options for himself.

    I think the true Stephen is far more like the thoughtful reasoned Stephen we catch briefly right before Wallace heads to town (after being decked in frustration by Hamish), and then the Stephen we see in town with Hamish watching the execution.

    Bottom line: A crazy person can't convincingly act that deeply sane; but a sane person can pretend to be convincingly crazy.

    Stephen's not actually mercurial, he's actually got a stable core to him. This is more an introvert's trait, or one of the more introverted extroverts (of which ESFP is definitively not). He's actually one of the "wisest" characters in the film, so I would look at types that typically end up filling that role.

    (As comparison, Wallace himself is some sort of NF -- he's a "catalyst" by nature, and most consciously in his speeches to Robert the Bruce.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I know, I tried to find a video of that. But I couldn't find it. That pissed me off because I also thought that was the 'real' him. That's why I included the videos with the pictures, because that - at least - gives a little glimpse.

    That's one of the things I love about the character. He's silly and crazy, but deep down, he expresses truth with what he says. And at the end, he's really deep and wise, as you put it. Argh. I wish I could find it.

    Why does thoughtfulness negate ESFP? It's not like they're stuck in a teenage stage or something.

    I'm not saying he's not ESFP. I asked because I was rather perplexed myself.
