This is something I've been wondering for a while, and now that I'm fairly certain I'm an INFJ, I wanted some input from other people...
For some reason, I tend to grow obsessions/infatuations with certain kinds of characters. Not...in any sort of carnal way, mind you, but in a way that I end up wanting to pretend to be them, and I can't stop thinking about them...
The kinds of characters tend to be mysterious, aloof and/or kicka$$ women. Aloof...but not necessarily lacking in compassion. Examples of such characters include (but are not limited to)
Selene - Underworld/Underworld: Evolution/Underworld: Awakening
Elektra Natchios - Daredevil
Trinity - The Matrix/The Matrix Reloaded/The Matrix Revolutions
Elle Driver - Kill Bill Vol. 1/Vol. 2
Shosanna Dreyfus - Inglourious Basterds
Miriam Blaylock - The Hunger
Kanaya Maryam - Homestuck (MSPA)
Cybersix - Cybersix
Rachael - Blade Runner
Story - Lady in the Water
River Tam - Firefly/Serenity
Zam Wesell - Star Wars: Episode II
Lara Croft - Tomb Raider (the videogames)
Deoxys - Pokemon The Movie 7: Destiny Deoxys (something struck me as feminine about it, I don't know why...)
General Grievous - Star Wars: Episode III (rare 'male' example)
Max Guevera - Dark Angel
Melina Havelock - 007: For Your Eyes Only
And the list could go on, but the movies/tv-shows get more and more obscure from there...
The weird part is that...all I have to do is see a screenshot or a trailer to become obsessed. And the obsession doesn't start right away; oftentimes the character's image will be stuck in my head, and I'll end up having to find out more information about them, which often causes me to obsess on the character even more.
Is this my Introverted Intuition causing me to become subconsciously attached to a character before I know what they're like? Is it perhaps because some of these characters share INFJ traits and I feel drawn to them?
