Caprica: Joseph Adama [ISTJ]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / the mod.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Joseph is much more a product of his past than he realizes; though he deviates from a traditional way of living for a time, it is easy and comfortable for him to slip back into the traditions and routines of his former life. He uses long-established practices in his legal work, as well as his personal life – change is somewhat difficult for him, and he expects things to unfold in certain ways based on past experience (judges that can be bribed, the dangers in betraying one of their own kind). He is practical, straightforward, down to earth, and conscious of the details involved in whatever he is doing.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): He is hard-working and always takes the most logical approach, to accomplish tangible goals in the real world – to get clients off on technicalities, to have something to barter with, or to find his daughter’s avatar. He goes through mostly legal channels but also knows how to accomplish things in “the underground.” Joseph measures his success by what it accomplishes rather than how others react to it; he is able to make brutal tactical decisions…

Introverted Feeling (Fi): … that must match up to his specific code of honor for him to be comfortable with them. His strong, personal sense of right and wrong causes him to waffle on whether or not it is right to kill Daniel’s wife and he changes his mind – calling off the attack. He is appalled when his actions and orders lead to innocent third parties being killed. He cannot comprehend how Sam can so completely compartmentalize his life and condone murder. Though he cares deeply about his family, after losing his wife and daughter, Joseph never speaks of them to anyone. He mourns in silence.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): When given the chance to align with Graystone, Joseph worries about the consequences of stealing from a member of their own gangster group. He is not interested in new technology until he determines that it is a way of communicating with his daughter again. He worries about his son’s future and wants something different for him than they have, but is not proactive in changing his life.
