    Default There Will Be Blood

    Just finished watching this crazy movie. Daniel Plainview is a force in himself. I think he's an INTJ 8w7. His main foe in the film, Eli Sunday, vibes as a ESFJ 2w3.

    Anyone agree/disagree?

    Yeah, I think Plainview seems pretty definite INTJ, one highlighting the negative aspects of that type (no, they aren't all like Plainview, but I've known some who are, and they tend to be the ones who most vehemently defend themselves and people like themselves as awesome or, though they don't explicitly say this, superior. In fact, I expect the first person to call Plainview something else will likely be a proud INTJ). Sunday might be an ESFJ, not that he's much better. I haven't seen the movie in a year or two (I do love this film though), so I'm not certain about Sunday. Plainview is total unhealthy INTJ, though.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    great film has a bit too much dialogue for my taste but still worth it. The ending made me "LOL".

    Maybe INTJ is right. Although I wonder why an INTJ would be so vicious about milkshakes.

    I think at that point he had completely lost it and just went on a random stream-of-consciousness diatribe about his power as an oilman.

    To be fair, there wasn't any literal milkshake involved.

    I don't see Daniel plainview as a very negative person like most people. IMO he progressively become more and more cynical as he become more greedy, that's what makes the movie so great. There is alot of greatness and drive in Daniel, he started out as a very generous person when he adopted the young boy.

    Agreed, especially those first 15 minutes. Nobody could keep their mouth shut. It was beyond annoying.

    Yeah. I always thought at the end, when he has that translated fallout with his son, he was really just trying to hurt him and get him out of his life forever. I think he really was supposed to sympathetic initially (hard worker, busted leg, small businessman, child rescuer), and then just becomes more and more evil as the movie goes on. By halfway through the movie, he is clearly a pretty terrible person and an obvious villain. Then again, so is Eli.

    They both see what they want, go for it, and it slowly destroys them. Normally, success is not so destructive. Or is it?
