Legend of Korra: Korra [ESFP]

UNOFFICIAL TYPING by curiouscarson

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Korra is very rash.  She often springs into action without thinking of the consequences.  She feels like she always needs to be doing things.  She hates waiting or when she is incapable of helping people, which is why the trauma she goes through at the end of Book 3 is so hard for her.  She is a naturally adapt fighter and bender.  She picks up new bending techniques quickly and with ease.  Though she is put under serious circumstances, she is naturally fun loving; she enjoys playing games and experiencing new things.  The sights and sounds of republic city excite her, as does the festival in the Southern Water Tribe.

Introverted Feeling (Fi):  Korra leads with her emotions first.  She responds to situations with how she feels in that moment.  She’s very compassionate and always wants to help people who need it.  However, she doesn’t exactly empathize the way and Fe-user would.   She often tries to find a frame of reference to something she’s been through.  Furthermore, she struggles with navigating social situations, especially dealing with politicians and the media.  She lacks tact.  She is unapologetically herself.   When people try to control her, she refuses (running away to Republic City, sneaking away to probending).  Sometimes she takes this too far and ignores well-meant advice (She ignores her father and Tenzin in the beginning of Book 2 because she is mad at them).  At the beginning of Book 4 she runs away because she can only take so much of people caring and worrying for her, she needs to heal on her own. 

Extroverted Thinking (Te):  Korra is a natural leader.  She is decisive and goal oriented.  When she knows what she wants, she makes a plan to accomplish it.  She likes to see evidence and even more, to experience things for herself in order to believe it.  In intense situations, she acts in the fast and efficient way.  And as she matures, she learns to balance her emotions.   

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Several characters point out that Korra struggles with the spiritual side of being the Avatar.  This is more than just her powers.  Korra struggles to disengage from the physical world see beyond the objective reality.   In Book 1, she struggles with meditating, because she wants to being doing something.  She solves problems by acting on them, not thinking about them.  She isn’t in tune to her intuition warning her about things (She doesn’t see the plan behind by Tarrlok or Unalok or how they are using her).  She rarely thinks of the long term consequences of her actions.  She feels drawn to, but struggles with, finding personal meaning in the things that happen to her.  


MD: The Southern Water Tribe Festival was once a solemn and meditative affair. But now it’s all rides, games, and fried food on sticks. The festival was a fun way to show how Aang, Appa, and Momo are now part of popular culture in the Avatar world. Prop designs by Studio Pierrot. Color by Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf.

LOK Series Rewatch | 2.01 - Rebel Spirit

Team Avatar and Tenzin’s family travel to the Southern Water Tribe to attend the Glacier Spirits Festival. While there, Korra’s uncle, Unalaq, attempts to persuade Korra to let him advise her about the spirits, but both Korra’s father and Tenzin assert that she needs to focus on her airbending. However, during the festival, Korra discovers that it was her father and Tenzin rather than Aang who kept her locked away, and after a dark spirit attacks, Korra breaks off her studies under Tenzin and takes up Unalaq as her instructor.
