    We are told to "put our selves in the character's shoes", but what if we put ourselves into the character's mind? How does the character perceive the world, what motivates them, and where do their weaknesses lie? Utilizing Jungian Psychology and Myers-Briggs Theory, an incredible world of character analysis is illuminated.
