A Few Bloody Noses: Typing the Characters from the Patriot

Amazon.com: The Patriot (Extended Cut): Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger, Joely  Richardson, Jason Isaacs, Chris Cooper, Roland Emmerich, Mark Gordon, Dean  Devlin, Centropolis Entertainment, Inc.; Mutual Film Company: Movies & TV

In the spirit of Independence Day, we wanted to revisit something patriotic. There’s nothing more patriotic than The Patriot, staring Mel Gibson.

Even though Mel Gibson is the obvious lead, there’s a strong ensemble cast (at least where male characters are concerned).

Aunt Charlotte is a bland character. We don’t get that many lines from her, and when she does speak, it’s fairly blah. We’re going with a 2 or 9, but it’s hard to type a character with so little data.

We don’t get much from Ann Howard either, but there were a few key moments that made us type her as a 1. Similarly, we think her beloved, Gabriel, is also an enneagram 1.

Col. Tavington is another classic villain, and we feel pretty confident he’s a 3. Success is everything for him.

And then there’s Benjamin Martin. Once again, we had the hardest time typing the lead. Is he an 8? A 5? A 6? You tell us!
