    Talking Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible

    Is anyone watching Joss Whedon's Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog? If not, I recommend it, especially to Joss Whedon fans.

    Dr. Horrible = INT_ ?
    Penny = INF_ ?
    Captain Hammer = ESTP?
    Bad Horse = heh, just kidding. I don't think you can type a horse that hasn't had any speaking parts yet.

    Opinions?

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Dr. Horrible - INTP?
    Penny - INFJ
    Captain Hammer - Yeah, ESTP fits fairly well.

    I'd say Dr. Horrible is an INFP.

    It is, isn't it? My husband, who isn't a particular fan of Joss Whedon, really likes it and I think he was surprised about that. I imagine we will buy the soundtrack when it comes out because he liked the music, too.

    I've been loving it. But the words "Joss Whedon" and "musical" sort of sealed that deal already. (And on a shallow note, I've found Neil Patrick Harris irresistible since I saw him cooking on Kitchen Impossible.)

    I think it's really cool as a villain origin myth.. And I hadn't thought about it too deeply, but Haphazard's INFP typing of Dr. Horrible is right on. (The disappointed Fi.)

    I'd forgotten by part 3 that Joss Whedon was involved and therefore someone had to die. Penny was such a cariacture though.. and their worldviews were sort of incompatible.

    If there was a sequel, what would you like to see in it?

    I don't know what I'd like to see in it, but Joss Whedon's apparently making an Act IV.

    How sad is it that I feel a truly deep level of identification with Billy/Dr. Horrible?

    I don't know, but I think my husband may feel some of that same thing. I don't know about other NTs, but I know that my INTP is pretty idealistic and romantic under his cynical, misanthropic exterior, which is why I don't think the good doctor is necessarily an NF.

    I can relate a lot to Dr. Horrible and I could definately see INFP being a good match, but I'm curious about how INTJs and INTPs both feel about the good horrible doctor. I can clearly see the Fi aspect that would point to INFP, but what do others see reagrding Ni vs Ne and Ti vs Te in him? What about the possibility of him being a shy ENxP?

    My guesses for the others
    Penny - INFj
    Captain hammer - ESTP
    Moist - Not enough talking to determine much, but INTP would be my guess.
    (with nothing other than gut feeling to base that guess on )
