S2E15: David Fincher and Enneagram Type 5 (Part 2)

Mario and TJ continue their discussion on the films of David Fincher to explore Enneagram Type 5, “Striving to Feel Detached.” They discuss the films, “The Social Network” and “Girl with a Dragon Tattoo” and how the main characters in these movies portray Type Five characteristics. 

“A lot of navigating themes in there, which is really interesting and ironic given that Zuckerberg is presented as this guy with no social grace whatsoever. But he’s not unaware of how people’s feelings work, of social status, he uses that. He just wears this mask of ‘It doesn’t affect me. I don’t care.’” - TJ Dawe [20:32]

“Control and autonomy is a huge, huge issue for Fives, and that’s one of the themes when they first meet with Sean Parker, played by Justin Timberlake.” - Mario Sikora [14:37]
