    I've never seen this movie before. I've heard it's good, though.

    It's a good movie, to be sure, but after the first viewing it starts to leave a sugary taste in my mouth .

    This is far more typical of a T who instinctively tries to evaluate F-style expression and feelings through the impersonal filter.

    I could hear Todd being much more likely to say, "That's stupid" or "That's unfair" rather than "That's mean" or "That isn't right."

    Which is why he doesn't know what to do with his deskset either. (For example.) Logically, he should be fine with it; but he's sensing he's really hurt over it; but he doesn't know why, and doesn't know what to do about it either; because technically his parents didn't do anything wrong.

    (Neil helps him put it in perspective.)

    he's very VERY detached from any inner Fi sense. Not the sort of thing you'd expect from someone with an Fi primary... but totally in lines with a Ti primary.
    Ive just watched this film again and as an infp and really identified with Todd - to me Todd is tortured by his feelings, they own him, he finds it very hard to express this in words - except when forced - when he speaks with real eloquence and passion (the poetry lesson) but it seems to me that he has a rich inner life. His extreeme introversion makes it seem as though he is cold or detached but he is really full of passions. He is very distressed by the deskset but feels he should somehow be grateful for a gift - however bad it is (typical - to me - screwed up infp guilt trip)

    Everytime I watch it I feel more and more irritated by Mr Keating and his arrogance and crtainty that what he is doing is 'right' for all of the boys he teaches - I think I would have found Mr Keating's class a very scary place.

    Disclaimer: One, this is not an on-topic post. Two, I love poetry. Three, I'm an English teacher.

    I have a hard time watching this moving and I find it neither inspirational or moving. This movie was made for NF teachers. The few NT English teachers I know just roll our eyes when the title is mentioned. I guess I come from a more pragmatic school of thought when it comes to teaching literature.

    Let me put it another way, decent movie, but a terrible teaching device.

    Hi Works
    I'm an NF teacher and agree that his teaching is horrible -as well as being a massive show off (yawn I'd get sick of that very soon) - he's manipulative, abuses his power and position, puts vulnerable young people at risk and takes a 'one approach fits all' position - I remember a similar teacher I had at A level English - by the end of the first year we had covered hardly any of the work we should have and nobody achieved the grades they could have. Of course education is not all about grades. Helping people find their passion is an important part of teaching to me - but it has to done using a great deal of sensitivity. I like aspects of the movie because of the portrayal of the young people but the film's 'message' is about as subtle as a brick.

    My istp husband who has no regard for poetry at all - says he'd like to punch him!

    Dead Poets' Society is amazing! I watched it in English class. I think the teacher is probably an INTP who was passionate enough about his ideas to overcome the need to keep quiet.

    Yeah, it annoyed the hell out of me, too.
