I have added a link at the end of this blog about the pros and cons of the INTP Myers-Brigg Personality type to peruse if psychology interests you. As I navigate new opportunities and major choices of where to live and work in South Florida, I realize more and more how difficult it is for me to make decisions.
This theme fits perfectly with Woody Allen’s latest “Cafe Society” since the protagonist’s conflict longs for the ‘one that got away’. Jesse Eisenberg plays the latest version of a younger Woody Allen character; a personification of frayed nerves, twitch and anxiety. His love interest Kristen Stewart, is equally ver klempt between the purity of Jesse’s love and a long standing affair with a married man (Steve Carell in a very maudlin role, meaning a 2-d character, impotent in range).
The good news is Eisenberg and Stewart have chemistry, even with writing that’s a little predictable. Another positive aesthetic note: Kristen Stewart’s costuming, for those who love 30’s fashions was divine.
The road not taken is a universal theme that will never become extinct. The grass always looks greener on the other side, yet once there, we all know that it usually isn’t much different. Being such a planner (both short and long term) has always been my way of wrestling and ‘winning’ against the unknown. Since moving here to Florida, I have lectured myself on simply taking one day at a time. Perhaps had I developed this patient zen earlier in life, my whole destiny may have been different. But would it have been better?As I navigate new opportunities and major choices of where to live and work in South Florida, I realize more and more how difficult it is for me to make decisions.
