Bob's Burgers: Gene Belcher: ENFP


Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Gene is a Ne-dom to the max. In the above GIF, he goes through many phases, changing his style constantly, claiming each is who he really is. He’s imaginative and creative and comes up with ideas effortlessly. When in a cheer-off, he comes up with several original cheers on the fly, beating his opponent handedly. In one episode, he writes a musical based on Die Hard, coming up with all the dialogue, dances, songs, and acts all the parts in it too. Whenever his ISTJ dad gives him a mundane task, he finds a way to make it fun, for instance, turning handing out free samples into a singing performance. Gene is highly distractable and gets bored easily.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Gene doesn’t talk about how he feels, but rather shows it through actions. For example, he doesn’t say it hurts his feelings to be ignored, but dons a Sasquatch mask and makes noise, grumbles and huffs till he gets attention. While Gene is mostly a dreamer who just wants to come up creative, fun ideas, he will do what he thinks is right if pushed. When people make fun of Tina, he stands up to them, exclaiming that only him and Louise are allowed to tease her, they’ll stick together from the womb to the tomb. When high schoolers are about to take down the young trick or treaters on Kings Head Island, he helps his siblings save them. Even though his ex girlfriend annoys the living crap out of him, he still lets her in his musical because it’s the right thing to do.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Gene loops a lot, coming up with ideas and just going for them, without stopping to consult his Fi. He wants to be in a band and starts one, even though he can’t play more than two notes on his keyboard, but then almost looses his friends because he doesn’t like how they’re trying to take over “his” band. His musical isnt selected by his teachers, and he plans on doing it anyway, stealing cast and audience members from the other play, but at the end combines his with the other play because he feels bad for sabotaging the other kids. Gene gets caught up being Beefsquatch, without caring he’s ruining Bob’s cooking show, but of course realizes he’s wrong and reconciles with his dad in the end.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Gene is forgetful and not very aware of his environment. He constantly looses things and has a hard time following through on tasks; he forgets the black garlic during the burger contest and almost gets distracted by the food fest and forgets to give it to his dad again. He’s also not very aware of his own bodily sensations and continues to eat lobster even though he’s VERY allergic, just to experience the thrill of trying new food.


he didnt think she’d get this far

(as promised @raphael-sanpellegrino


Varric: So what do you do in that gigantic house all day?
Fenris: Dance, of course.
Varric: Really?
Fenris: I run from room to room, choreographing routines.
Varric: You’re actually joking. Alert the Chantry! They need to put this on the calendar!
Fenris: And you thought I was always serious.

Stefan danced with Elena! Why are the writers forcing Steroline!!!

First of all *sigh* he didn’t say “I never danced until you Caroline” he said

“…of all the ways that loving you has changed my life… you made me dance”

Stefan’s feelings towards dancing with Elena:

Stefan’s feelings towards dancing with Caroline:

No begging involved. In fact Stefan is the one who often asks Caroline to dance, whereas his girlfriend had to beg him to dance with her.

Here’s Stefan dancing with his other best friend Lexi

Lexi: Okay, I’m gonna need a little more foot movement.
Stefan: I’m not really interested in making a fool out of myself.

Even though…

Yet he’s only known Caroline a couple of years, but he’s about to be himself around her almost instantly. Like it changed his life #justsayin

Stefan not caring about making a fool of himself with Caroline

What’s the phrase oh yes RECEIPTS

Bonus Meta! - Does Stefan still Hate Dancing

*not my gifs*

I’m just fascinated by this sequence, and was so glad to find a behind the scenes picture of director Melanie Mayron working with Shay Mitchell and Ashley Benson and choreographer Charm on it. 

The beautiful thing about it is, beyond the song “Bang Bang” playing copiously throughout the episode, it’s all performance, anchored by Ashley Benson, with Shay Mitchell and the actress playing the coach being the horrified observers. The show has done scenes before showing the characters weighed down by the drama in their lives and unraveling, but this is one of the first times that it’s happened so uniquely, without dialogue. It was like watching a car crashing into a train and exploding off the side of a mountain onto a nest or two or three different endangered bird species, and it was amazing.
