    Default Spartacus: Blood and Sand

    I AM SPARTACUS!

    Epic fucking tv series, so anyone have any thoughts concerning the characters types? Well obviously. Here's my typings so far (to be expanded more later):

    Spartacus: ISFP cp6w5 > 2w1 > 8w9 sx/sp
    Batiatus: ENTJ 8w7 > 3w4 > 6w5 sp/so
    Doctore/Oenomaus: ISTJ 1w9 > 5w6pr > 3w4 so/sp
    Lucretia: ENFJ 4w3 sx/so
    Crixus: ESTP 3w2 so/sx
    Ashur: ENFJ 3w2 so/sp
    Varro: ESFP 6w7 sx/so
    Illythia: ESFP 4w3 so/sx
    The Legatus Glabor: ENTJ 8w9 so/sp

    Sounds probable, just curious why ISFP for Spartacus?

    He seems for the most part very driven by his morals and doing what he consideres to be right, even if it is against the common morality of Roman society; case in point:

    Disobeying the Legatus in order to save his people, rebeling against Doctore and well just about everyone when he feels like it, guilt and anger towards those who die in the series (not naming names lest I spoil for someone), etc.

    Also, Se usage seems obvious (considering that he's a skilled fighter and womanizer) and I see virtually no Te in him what-so-ever.

    When did Spartacus womanize in the series? He's very devoted to his wife and even rejects the advances of one girl sent by Batiatus's wife to seduce him.

    In a flashback it revealed that he had sex with many women before he ever met Sura, IIRC.

    Whoa, who would expect only NFs to like Spartacus.
    My guesses:
    Spartacus: ISTP 6w5
    Batiatus: ESTP 8w7
    Doctore/Oenomaus: ISTJ 1w9 (agreed)
    Lucretia: ESFJ 2w3
    Crixus: ESTP 3w2 (agreed)
    Ashur: INFJ 3w2
    Varro: ESFP 6w7 (agreed)
    Illythia: ESFP 3w4
    The Legatus Glaber: ENTJ 8w9 (agreed)

    At least I think that part was in the series, or maybe I'm thinking of some other series I'll have to look into that actually (although beyond that he's still aux Se).

    Even NF's can feel a little bloodthirsty at times. Or in my case, all the time

    Why ISTP for Spartacus? ESTP for Batiatus? INFJ for Ashur?

    mwa ha ha! You NFs keep surprising me.

    Why ISTP for Spartacus?
    He is way too laconic and dry to be an Fi-dom. He hardly gets emotional. While he is smoother than the typical ISTP badass, he still has the essentials.
    ESTP for Batiatus?
    Hedonist: check, impulsive: check, fun: check, overconfident: check
    He doesn't have the leader profile. Most of his achievements can be atributed either to blind luck or Doctore.
    INFJ for Ashur?

    The Cobra:

    “OoOoOoOo, That’s a bingo!”

    INFJs are not necessarily only good for long-range planning and being a visionary. They can be pretty damn scary when using that Ni and Fe for manipulative purposes.
    The Cobra uses their Fe to be playful and seductive to get people to disarm and loosen up, all the while keeping a close Ni look on what is going on, drinking in as much information as possible with Se, and reserving their actions until their Ni tells them the perfect time to strike. And when they do, they go straight for the jugular. The name “Cobra” comes from the posture they sometimes take with their head upright and eyes narrowed, still, and looking straight forward onto their prey. Cobras make perfect secret agents and interrogators, which is why many of them are. They can read their subjects with uncanny accuracy and know just what to say and exactly how to act to get what they want out of anyone. Sometimes they can even get people to admit to crimes they didn’t even commit; luckily they know when they are lying too. Ever heard a person who could talk their way out being charged for murder? They were probably a Cobra INFJ. Don’t get charmed by the smile, watch the eyes, if you get strung along by their hypnotic Fe display, they fucking got you where they want you. All INFJs have a little bit of Cobra in them, what you do with it is entirely up to you. For the most part it is actually a defense mechanism, and they will embody the cobra for a quick escape when trouble arises.

    Fictional Examples: Col. Hans Landa (Inglourious Basterds), Jarlaxle Baenre (Forgotten Realms, The Dark Elf Saga), Bill (Kill Bill)
    Real-Life Examples: Bjork (Seriously.)
    To sum, I think the bad INFJ manipulation is more sophisticated than the bad ENFJ's.

    It's important to remember how unpredictable we truly are

    He never seemed that laconic or dry to me, although I don't tjink that those exlusive traits alone rule out Fi at all. Also, he does get emotional at times, quite often, but overall is more driven my his own personal values and ethical veiws than internal logical principles.

    Hedonist: check, impulsive: check, fun: check, overconfident: check

    The Se is there, but I don't think that someone who anticipates the potential behind things (his faith in Spartacus) as well as being a mastermind at planning and manipulation while envisioning himself as a the great man that he can become, could be Ni inferior. Also, when he acts out under stress, it's often in the form of severe and psychotic emotional outbursts and even more reckless behavior; tertiary Se and inferior Fi.

    Looks interesting, I shall give it a read later
