Harold and Maude
Se: Maude enjoys a thrill. She loves to drive crazy, smell things, feel things and do pretty much anything that thrills her senses. She loves to dance and lives to have fun. She’s agile for an old woman and doesn’t have any problem jumping around, stealing cars, shovels and trees right under people’s noses. Her main goal in life is to explore new experience and love every minute of it.
Fi: Maude’s morals are basically, I just feel like it, so I’m gonna do it. “It’s best not to be too moral. Live above morality.” She doesn’t even notice when other people seem surprised by her sense of right and wrong because it stems directly from inside herself and doesn’t really extend beyond herself. She does what she wants and can’t really see how it affects others.
Te: Maude is good at talking her way out of things, partially because she’s oblivious to the fact that she’s hurting other people, and partially because she’s just good at talking. She’s one of the few people that has an actual impact on Harold’s behavior.
Ni: Maude doesn’t plan ahead for anything and doesn’t really pay attention to long term consequences. She likes to pay attention to the differences between things and people rather than focusing on their similarities. Maude doesn’t pay close attention to the significance of events, but prefers things to be simple.

ok so that’s Maude but what about Harold??? ISTJ?
He’s type already. You can find him in the directory.
How about ENTP for Maude?
What makes you say that?
She’s plain crazy…but I don’t get the Se aggressiveness from her, neither does she feel like a feeler to me…she feels more cold-blooded.
Is Se necessarily aggressive? and are T-types necessarily cold?
Yes. Se is propensity for rage. Check inferior Se in action.
And T types, due to their preference for T over F, are colder compared to Fs, due to weaker empathy and being less affected by others’ distress.
Other people’s distress cause anxiety and feelings of ill in F types, particulary the Fe types. Someone who is not affected by it is therefor low in F and is colder.
Maude does not seem to care about other people’s distress, like the police officer etc.
Those weren’t literal questions. I’m trying to use the Socratic method here, but apparently it’s not working. I’ll give you a hint, the key-word being “necessary.”
