Director Statement

During the uprising of the pandemic and quarantine status of the world during early 2020, I came across a psychological personality concept: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and immediately fell in love with it. So I thought to myself, "What if there was a universe where the four letters of the MBTI personality types were to be visible to everyone?" For this specific film, I strived to focus on two instincts of MBTI: F (Feeling) and T (Thinking). For more information on how we made this film, I invite you to click the trailer video for the BEHIND-THE-SCENES!
