Discworld: Tiffany Aching [INTP]

We know that Tiffany is an introvert. She is quiet in a group and doesn’t like to take the lead unless absolutely necessary. Tiffany spends a lot of time alone and gets upset when the Feegles interfere too much in her private time. This means her top function is also introverted.

Tiffany is one of those rare literary characters whose functions are all evident, and, what’s more, all used regularly. She has a highly-developed Ti in that she is always internalizing and analyzing things; Tiffany rarely shares what is going on inside her head with others, but instead strives to truly understand things. She is curious about any and everything, and wants to learn as much as she can. Her Fe is also evident in her kind nature, her sensitivity toward the criticism of others for her behavior and ideas, and her occasional emotional outbursts.

She has an extraordinary ability to take random pieces of information and discern from them patterns of behavior that reveal the truth about her companions, and their current struggles and problems. That’s her Ne, which also sometimes gets her into trouble with her craving for new ideas! Tiffany also has a well-developed Si: she is forever thinking about the home she left behind, and is sentimental about such things as the necklace the boy she likes gave her.

So, what do you do with a character like Tiffany, whose functions are all equal in strength? They give us two options: INTP or ISFJ. Even though Tiffany does use a lot of Si, she uses even more Ne in her reaction to the world around her. And while she tends to be emotional at times, her approach to life is practical and somewhat cynical at times. In less guarded moments, Tiffany has a wicked and even morbid sense of humor, and her Fe is used more to avoid conflict and repress her tongue than it is a genuine ability to feel intense compassion for others.

This reveals that Tiffany is a well-developed, very female INTP.

PS: if you haven’t read any of Terry Pratchett’s books, I highly recommend him. They are full of NP humor, satire, hilarity, absurdity, and mockery, but are also deeply moving and full of quirky and unforgettable characters.

Okay so it occurs to me that most of my posts about constantine has exclusively been either reblogging the gorgeous edits by thelaughingmagician or criticizing the straight-washing of John. I’m still upset about the straight-washing thing and I’m going to continue being vocally critical of that but I do still have every intention of watching the show (and reblogging pretty much all of thelaughingmagician's epic edits/manips/gifs/etc. Seriously, if you're a Hellblazer fan and you're not already following her you need to look at your life, look at your choices). And today I felt like sharing a squee.

DAT THEME, GUYS. LIKE. GODSDAMN. THIS DESERVES A PLACE OF HONOR ALONGSIDE THE PACIFIC RIM THEME FOR EPIC MOOD-SETTING EFFECTIVENESS. IMMA NEED AN OFFICIAL COMPLETE SCORE FOR THIS SHOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE LIKE YESTERDAY.

*continues to listen to it on repeat for the rest of eternity*

I think my whole problem with the Constantine show runner’s wariness to show him “getting out of bed with a guy in the pilot” is that i really don’t care about his love interest. I’m not watching the show so that he gets a male love interest. I’m watching because it looks like it could be really cool. That being said, it would be nice for him to even reference ex-boyfriends or flirt with a few guys or anything! It’s not that hard. I don’t need him to have a boyfriend by the end of the season just some fucking recognition and acknowledgment of the fact would be nice

impostoradult:

I’m not normally one to be a rabble-rouser, particularly on the internet.

But I really think the fandom forces of tumblr should collectively spam NBC about Constantine, and recent disclosure that they are straight-washing his character. (He’s canonically bisexual in the comics)

If there is…

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

September Book Photo Challenge, day 8, I cried - a lot:
The first book that sprang to mind was Changes, book 12 of the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. If you’ve read it, you probably know exactly which part of it I’m talking about.
Worst thing for me was, I listened to the audiobook on a train. And James Marsters did such a great job with it, he had me in tears on a crowded train. I had to pause the audiobook and compose myself. Can you imagine the looks people gave me?

Reason to buy audiobooks: James Marsters voices them all
Reason not to buy audiobooks: already have actual books and dont have money
…
but James Marsters

You might notice the books on my shelf? Yes, I have all of them as audio books too, except for Ghost Story, where they used a different voice actor.That’s the reason why that’s the only hardback I own in the series. Didn’t want to wait until it was out in paperback and the voices were just wrong in the audio book with a different narrator after 12 books with the same.

Oooh nice! That is pretty much my goal haha
*GASP* They what! Why? Noooo that is very upsetting! James Marsters is brilliant at voicing Harry Dresden. Was the audio book still worth it or did a different voice kinda throw you out of the story? I may or may not have to skip getting the audio for that one…


I listened to the snippet on audible and it was just wrong, so I skipped it. But James is back, they just used someone else because there was a schduling conflict — according to James at a convention, the book was finished late, so audio recording was late and he had other commitments. They were not willing to reschedule audio recording by a week or two, so they hired someone else to have at least the audio book out in time.
But a hell of a lot of people didn’t buy it, so I guess they noticed that it was a mistake.
Honestly, I’m a huge James Marsters fangirl… But whoever the reader is, you don’t change them after 12 books. It won’t work

Ah, yes, that makes sense! Too bad he couldn’t do it, though I’m glad he is back for the other audios. Haha no kidding! Too bad they realised their mistake too late. 
I totally agree. Even if it wasn’t James Marsters, they still shouldn’t have done that. Readers/listeners aren’t stupid. It’s hard to immerse oneself if the character doesn’t sound like the character. It’s pretty much the same concept for anything else. Really, the only exceptions are James Bond and Doctor Who.
Also, it’s somehow worse because it’s James Marsters they tried to replace. That’s…well that’s a dead giveaway that something went seriously wrong! XD
