American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson: Christopher Darden [INFJ]

UNOFFICIAL TYPING BY: ancientseaofnightandstars

Introverted iNtuition (Ni): Chris is always looking to where the defense is going with the case, what their goal is. He sees Johnnie’s angle quickly, and attempts to prepare for it ahead of time. He trusts his instincts with people, especially with Mark Fuhrman, and tries to persuade Marcia to exclude him as a witness. He tends to focus on the impact the case will have in the future, telling Johnnie that he didn’t truly help the African-American community in this one case, and that the issues will persist regardless of O.J.’s conviction or acquittal.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): The socially ostracizing effect of the case hits Chris especially hard, within his family and community. He feels very connected to the greater African-American community, and values that connection. He’s candid with Marcia and others about how he feels, and it bleeds through when he’s in the courtroom, culminating in him nearly being held in contempt.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Chris believes in the facts of the case, that they prove O.J.’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, that they’ll shine through in the end. He has no problem going through the minutiae of the case again and again, searching for new evidence and details. He asks a lot of questions, mostly concerning the plans of both the defense and prosecution, (Ni-Ti).

Extroverted Sensing (Se): When Chris starts succumbing to competition or taking undue risks, he makes mistakes. He gets caught up in the moment during the trial, and is almost held in contempt. Most famously, he lets the defense bait him into having O.J. try on the gloves, which blows up in his face.

Note: I almost went with ISFJ, because of his emphasis on the African-American experience and community, but I saw more evidence for inferior Se than inferior Ne, and he seemed too future-oriented to be Si-dominant. 

  • What she says: im fine
  • What she really means: it's been 21 years and I still can't believe OJ was found Not Guilty. There was so much compelling evidence against him. The victims' blood in his Bronco, the extra large glove left back at Bundy that they only sold at select stores including Bloomingdales where Simpson often shopped, Ron's hair was found on OJ, Nicole's blood was found on OJ's sock, the Bruno Magli size 12 shoe print, the battered wife photos, the 911 calls Nicole had made due to prior incidences the justice system has failed us terribly
