Santa Clarita Diet: Eric Bemis [INTP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / The Mod

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Eric gets straight A’s in school, as a model student, known for creating unique technology that impresses others in his science class (he invents a robot as a side project!). He’s detached, logical, and curious about how things work – when he finds out about Sheila’s “zombie problem,” Eric is interested in everything about it, from the impact it is having on her vital organs to what other people think about it (Ne). He’s somewhat awkward at socialization, because he’s so blunt up front.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): He gets his ideas from many different places – books, television shows, comic books, his reading and research; he has many hobbies and interests that consume regular portions of his time; Eric isn’t afraid to listen to a nobody so long as they have a good idea to share. He’s big-picture minded, and warns Sheila of the longer term expectations and repercussions of her “illness.” He’s also eager to share her experiences on a message board, in the hopes it will elicit others’ input and theorizing.

Introverted Sensing (Si): His personal subjective experiences frame his affections (or lack thereof) for his stepdad. He harbors long-term interests and a crush on his pretty next door neighbor. Eric is full of information, facts, and details he’s gathered from many different places; he knows the contents of the comic book store so well, he can recite the story details from memory. He admits that he’s not “that creative” in coming up with “fun things to do.” It’s hard for him to step outside his comfort zone at times.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): He tries to connect to the girls, by joining into their conversation with overt enthusiasm that is sometimes misplaced; Eric frets after the fact that he may have insulted Sheila or upset the family; he doesn’t want Abby reading a particular comic book, because he senses its themes may disturb her. He’s socially awkward, but also wants to be liked and included.

According to contemporary mores, Anne should have shut her eyes to Henry’s pursuit of Jane Seymour. Queens were expected not to notice husbandly diversions. George Wyatt commented that ‘wise men in those days judged’ that if, like Katherine, Anne had been more tolerant of peccadilloes she would have risked less; however, 'her too great love’ prevented what 'she might the rather have done respecting the general liberty and custom then that way’. Wyatt’s prose is heavy-footed, but it does point to an easily overlooked but drastic weakness in Anne’s position. Royal marriages, both before, during and after the sixteenth century, were expected to be business affairs, related to international diplomacy and the continuation of a dynasty. Spouses were suggested to, not chosen by, a monarch. Romance featured only accidentally; its expected place was the affaire. Henry VIII, almost uniquely, defied this expectation and custom and both chose and married Anne for romantic reasons. … In marrying for love, Henry in effect confused the role of wife and mistress, with the result that personal emotion was the basis of his relationship with Anne and hers with him. Anne was therefore right to say that her feelings were more exposed than those of Katherine. The corollary was that, as well as being hurt by royal philandering, Anne was compelled to fight to protect this personal relationship with Henry. She could not distance herself as Katherine of Aragon had. She could not ignore it if her husband had become infatuated with Jane, even though the inevitable result was to make Jane more significant than she need have been. Though tolerating infidelity would have been the safer course, Anne was forced to put herself on a level with Jane and challenge Henry to choose between them.
