Remember the Titans: Herman Boone [ENTJ]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / the mod.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Coach Boone is “no nonsense, and business all the time.” He goes into practices and football camp armed with a plan, with routines, with schedules, with rules, and expectations that his team will toughen up and be professional on and off the field. Boone steps on people’s toes at times because he takes such a hard line with his players; but as he tells Coach Yoast, to do otherwise is not to “do these kids any favors” in the real world. His tactics look brutal at first, but shape the kids into a “lean, mean football team!”

Introverted Intuition (Ni): He has one major goal, as well as a good ability to read his players both for their potential and their weaknesses. He sizes up and singles out Bertier immediately as a potential leader and instills in him the confidence to wrangle his teammates. Early on, Boone is already looking toward the championships and planning for them. Every inch of his energy goes to formulating the perfect season and outcome. Though racism does impact his team, Boone has little interest in it and is disconnected from its roots in the south; he prefers to focus on the change he wants to be in the world, rather than the forces aligned to stop him.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): His tough love on the team is sometimes unrealistic about their limitations; he drills them hard, he asks for intense physical exertion from them, he makes them jog in the middle of the night both to get out their energy, remind them who is boss, and make a point about fighting together. Boone is quick to react and can take advantage of a situation; he doesn’t hesitate to arm himself and rush out into the street after a brick is tossed through his window.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): His inability to pay attention to how his players feel makes a lot of them dislike him, and initially earns him criticism from Coach Yoast for being too hard on them. Boone doesn’t open up and share his feelings, but does direct his time and attention at what he cares about most (football and his family). He can ignore slights against him to get the job done (taking the job despite the blatant racism of some of the other coaches and the town’s opinion of him); Boone is more concerned with doing what he feels is right than he is about what others may think.
