Double Indemnity: Barton Keyes [INTJ]
OFFICIAL TYPING by mysterylover123
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Keyes bases his assessments of claims cases on his ‘little man’, aka his intuition. He gets a gut feeling about a case, and as soon as he does, he’s on that case and will get to the bottom of it. He has a remarkable ability to spot a phony claim, a wrong customer, and he usually bases it just on an intuitive leap. He’s unstoppable when once he gets on the scent, keeping at the case until he’s got the crook. He often speaks in clever metaphors for the current situation, like the idea that two people committing a murder is “not like riding a trolley car where they can get off at seperate stops.”
Extroverted Thinking (Te): Keyes is conscientious, responsible and organized. He’s a workaholic with an eye for talent. He’s so meticulous that, as Neff puts it he ‘won’t even check to see today’s Tuesday without looking at the calendar, then he’d have to see if it was this year’s or last year’s calendar, then if it checks with the world almanac’s calendar.’ He’s logical, and puts together the Dietrichson case based on clear deduction.
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Although he puts on an act of being ‘sore at everybody’ and logically detached, Keyes is more influenced by his internal feelings than he realizes. He doesn’t let many people in, but when he does and those people disappoint him (ie, Walter) it cuts him deeply. He has his strong ethics that keep him away from any kind of dirty dealing. He refuses to help Walter escape in the end, but still helps him light a cigar due to their bond.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): He’s not given to many sensory pleasures, and is often a little out of place in his physical environment. He’s also not very observant, missing certain details like Jackson recognizing Neff, and always neglecting to have matches available.
