Doctor Strange: Stephen Strange [ESTP]
OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / the Mod
Extroverted Sensing (Se): Stephen is an incredibly hands-on doctor, who “wings” pulling a bullet out of a man’s head – a dangerous procedure that relies only on his senses and the machine. He often finds himself reacting to and engaging with his environment in unexpected ways; Christine accuses him of “spending money as fast as you can make it.” His car accident is the result of reckless speeding while checking brain scans on his phone. Stephen often engages the villains beyond his own magical abilities, trusting he can somehow handle it – and he usually does. He’s a fast reactor and thinker.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Until Stephen understands the principles of magic, he cannot learn it; then he quickly abandons “tradition and training” to “teach himself.” Once he masters the logic of magic, his learning increases to the point where he’s doing advanced magic far beyond his years, and all self-taught. He innovates shamelessly and has a little regard for the rules – stealing books from the library, and trying out more advanced, even dangerous spells as soon as he learns them. For awhile, Stephen is utterly unconcerned with people’s feelings and lives – and only taking cases for…
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): … the advancement of his own ego. The Ancient One accuses him of being egotistical and says that gets in the way of his magic. Stephen wants to take no case where he might fail, which might reflect poorly on his medical skills. He tries to establish bonds with people through emotional dynamics (telling jokes, trying to make them laugh, and teasing them) but is really rather poor with people. Stephen’s own emotions flare up easily and he can express himself well, from frustration to anger and resentment.
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Stephen
concerns himself with the future of his profession. He does not want to ruin a
perfect record. He correctly guesses that the Ancient One draws her source of
power from the dark realm, even when the others argue there is no evidence to
support it. But he struggles so much to understand the Ancient One’s incredibly
complex metaphorical teaching methods that she literally must threaten his life
before he grabs an abstract concept. He also expresses annoyance that they should put danger warnings at the top of the magic spell pages instead of the bottom, since by the time he reads them after doing the spell, it’s too late.
Previous mistype. Shame-faced. I got too stuck on stereotypes, but Strange isn’t nearly careful enough to be a lower Ne user. He leaps into things before thinking them through (Se-dom). And he tries to bond with Fe.
