Anon asked: “You’re the first MBTI expert I’ve come across who’s typed the characters from Unsere Mütter, Unsere Väter, and since you’re an INTJ, I must know. Were you emotionally traumatized the first time you watched it?”
As always, I will take questions like these as an opportunity to enlighten my readers.
First of all, please stop using the word “traumatized” to describe your experience of watching movies and TV shows. For those of us (such as myself) who have PTSD, “traumatized” is a very strong word that bears heavy negative connotations. When used casually in the context of popular media, it can be triggering and hurtful to people who actually deal with the repercussions of trauma on a daily basis.
A TV show may affect your mood very strongly, but it does not “traumatize” you. Now, I’m perfectly fine with people asking me serious questions about trauma and PTSD, but on this site, I’m going to ask my users to try to avoid throwing around triggering terms in casual ways.
Now that I’ve explained that, I can answer your actual question. No, I was not emotionally traumatized by the show. I loved it, particularly for the complex questions that it asks, but also because I relate to Friedhelm Winter an a ridiculously deep level.
